Interesting Facts about Leonardo Da Vinci

  • Leonardo loved water. He developed plans for floating snowshoes, a breathing device for underwater exploration, a life preserver, and a diving bell that could attack ships from below. In case one had to.
  • Leonardo could draw forward with one hand while writing backward with the other, producing a mirror-image script that others found difficult to read which was exactly the point.
  • Leonardo was the first to explain why the sky is blue. (It's because of the way air scatters light.)
