We’ve all seen fireworks at some point in our lives, but how did they become so popular? The story of fireworks is long and varied. It’s hard to imagine that people wouldn’t have recognised the power of fireworks for as long as we’ve lived on this planet. Fireworks have been around for thousands of years, with many cultures celebrating important events with them. Let’s take a look at how fireworks rockets came to be and why they’re so powerful!
The Wooden Bird
The first rocket was a wooden bird. It was propelled by fire and flew through the air. This is how it happened:
A group of people were gathering wood for their homes when they found a tree that had fallen over. They decided to burn it down so that they could build their houses on top of it (this was before houses were made out of bricks).
Early Chinese Rockets
While firework rockets were being used as weapons in the Middle East, they were also being used to scare away birds from crops. The Chinese have had a long history of using explosives as weapons and fireworks since the first dynasties. They used these methods to scare away birds from their crops to prevent them from eating them or damaging them by flying into them while they were growing.
The Battle Of Kai-Keng
The Battle of Kai-Keng took place in 1644 between the Ming Dynasty and the Manchus. The battle was an important event for both sides because it signalled the end of the Ming Dynasty and its rule over China. The Chinese people were unhappy with their new ruler, who was a puppet ruler under foreign influence (the Manchus).
The Ming Dynasty used rockets as a weapon during this conflict; however, they failed to defeat their enemy because they were not very effective against them. This failure led to many deaths on both sides as well as heavy losses in terms of supplies needed for future wars against other countries such as Japan or Korea.
The First Rocket Used For Transportation
The first rocket used for transportation was the fire arrow, which was used in battle. The fire arrow was a weapon that fired arrows made of flammable materials such as pitch sulphur, which would burn when they hit their target. These were used both by soldiers on land and by sailors at sea.
The invention of gunpowder and fireworks was a significant milestone in the history of warfare. This discovery enabled armies to build large-scale cannons that could shoot farther, faster, and more accurately than any previous weapon. However, it also allowed groups of men to unite against their foes by lighting them up with fiery explosions! Though fireworks may seem like a simple curiosity today, they were once used as tools for war before becoming entertainment events at fairs or parties around the world.
