Ask an Explainer

Q:

Is it possible to make a kite that will hold a passenger?

A:

As a matter of fact, yes! Paragliding uses gigantic kites to help people sail through the air. While they are not always shaped like a kite you would fly on the beach, these kites have been adapted to better hold up a human passanger and help them fly better.
