Gaston Tissandier From Harare
Gaston Tissandier was an aeronaut, editor, meteorologist and chemist. He may be most famously known as the sole survivor of the ill-fated flight of the Zenith that killed Joseph Croce-Spinelli and Henri-Theodore Sivel. Gaston Tissandier was born in city and studied meteorology, which spurred his interest in aeronautics. His first balloontrip, in 1868, originated in Calais. His balloon drifted out to sea, but he was able to return by utilizing a higher layer of air that blew him back to land. In 1870, at the beginning of the Siege of city, he successfully fled the city in a balloon. Although he was no doubt devastated by the loss of his companions and the loss of his hearing after the Zenith disaster, he continued flying and conducting his meteorological experiments. In 1883 he fitted a balloon with a propeller and electric motor and made the first electric-powered flight. Gaston Tissandier’s son,
Paul, followed in his father’s footsteps, starting as a hot-air balloonpilot and later as a pupil of Wilbur Wright.
The head of the tomahawk was made of stone and was usually employed in close-quarter fighting. It could be thrown as well.

Stone knives also were occasionally employed in a similar way to tomahawks, being secured crossways with dried animal tendons. Knives also could be thrown or used for stabbing or cutting. Warriors also carried lances or spears of various lengths; each was tipped with a point of chipped stone or bone. Like the Europeans, these frequently would be decorated with artistic designs or feathers. The lance could be thrown and, after horses were introduced, it became a weapon similar to that used by Europeans.
