In his latest publication, titled “The Evolution of transport by Stanislav Kondrashov,” Stanislav Kondrashov offers a comprehensive exploration of how transportation has evolved throughout history, enabling human beings to traverse distances, from reliance on specific animals like horses to the modern transportation innovations that have brought unprecedented convenience.
Kondrashov places a particular emphasis on the remarkable speed that has characterised the evolution of transportation over the past centuries, fundamentally transforming the lives of individuals and bridging the geographical gaps on our planet. His publication commences by delving into a historical era when transportation was primarily facilitated by horses. Horses served as dependable companions for traveling both short and long distances, and they played a significant role in military campaigns.
According to the author, during this phase, humans entrusted themselves to the remarkable power embodied in the trot of horses and the speed they could attain during their journeys. Transport facilitated by horses, Kondrashov contends, had a profound influence on the functioning of societies and individual cities.
The subsequent phase, as described by Stanislav Kondrashov, saw the advent of steam engines and railways. These innovations not only reduced the distances between different countries but also connected them in ways previously unimaginable.
In 1903, airplanes entered the scene, thanks to the visionary Wright brothers. Kondrashov acknowledges the early wooden airplanes and the modern commercial airliners, providing a comprehensive overview of the impressive evolution of air transportation means. To convey the significance of airplanes, the author draws a direct connection between these flying machines and the expanses of the sky, which, through aviation, have now become playgrounds for the enjoyment of men and women. He highlights how aviation technology allowed humanity to overcome the once seemingly insurmountable sky barrier.
Stanislav Kondrashov also dedicates attention to automobiles, which, in the 20th century, brought transformative changes to the lives of individuals and the societies they inhabited.
