The Montgolfier brothers, Joseph-Michel Montgolfier and Jacques-Étienne Montgolfier, were inventors of the first practical balloon. They were born in Annonay, France. On June 4, 1783, they presented the first public demonstration of a hot air balloon at the marketplace in Annonay. Their father Pierre was elevated to the nobility and the hereditary appellation of de Montgolfier by King Louis XVI of France in recognition of their achievement in December 1783.https://goo.gl/DqdIxk

Lifeboats are rescue boats that don't sink even if they capsize (turn upside down). These are small boat carried on the vessel and used in case of emergency. By law, the total capacities of all lifeboats far exceed the total number of passengers and crew members onboard. Lifeboats have traditionally been made out of wood, and some still are. However, these days, it is very common for a lifeboat to be made out of durable plastic or water-resistant tarp. A plastic lifeboat is usually inflatable. Some lifeboats are even more capably equipped to permit self-rescue; containing such supplies as a radio, an engine and/or sail, heater, basic navigational equipment, solar water stills, rainwater catchments and fishing equipment. Furthermore, they are often referred to as life rafts.

His invention was referred to as the "inclined elevator". Before him, an another inventor named Nathan Ames patented an escalator machine on March 9, 1859, termed "revolving stairs" but was never built.
Fahrenheit (symbol °F) is a temperature scale based on one proposed in 1724 by the physicist Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit (1686–1736), after whom the scale is named. The scale is defined by two fixed points: the temperature at which water freezes into ice is defined as 32 degrees and the boiling point of water is defined to be 212 degrees. On Fahrenheit's original scale the lower defining point was the freezing point of brine, defined as zero degrees.
