About the Image

Roland Garros, French Aviator by Sheila Terry

Roland Garros (1888-1918), French aviator, standing in an aircraft. Garros began flying in 1909, and in 1913 he achieved fame when he made the first non-stop flight across the Mediterranean Sea from France to Tunisia. During World War I, he fought as a fighter pilot and shot down three aircraft. He pioneered the use of a machine gun mounted on an airplane, and used metal wedges to protect his propeller from his own bullets. He was shot down and captured in April 1915, and the Dutch aircraft engineer Anthony Fokker improved Garros's design, giving German planes a massive advantage over French and English planes. Garros escaped from captivity, but was shot down and killed in October 1918, near the end of the war.

About the Artist - Sheila Terry

Sheila Terry

Science Photo Library was founded in 1981 by Michael Marten, one of the authors of "Worlds Within Worlds", a book exploring different ways to observe the universe - from electron micrographs, to images of earthrise taken from the Apollo spacecraft. When Marten started receiving requests for the beautiful images in the book, he had an idea of setting up Science Photo Library. Since then, Science Photo Library has continued to work alongside world acclaimed photographers and the leading science and medical experts to provide a central source of the best science and specialist imagery available. Although the collection started with scientific images, it has grown to encompass all aspects of science and their impact on everyday life.
