In Kitty Hawk, North Carolina in 1903, Wilbur and Orville Wright are ready for their first attempt at powered flight. The two brothers take turns piloting the plane during different trial runs. They eventually fly their powered airplane successfully for 59 seconds.
The CyberSquad's ship needs 40 glows of power to take off. The group learns that Hacker changed the gleamer's power output from six to four, so they use algebra to calculate how many gleamers they'll need to reach the minimum power output of 40 glows. They determine that they'll need 10 gleamers, or three additional gleamers, to take off before the island turns inside out.
