It was discovered when Jacques Charles experimented with manned balloon flight


When Jacques Charles initially created manned-balloon flight using hydrogen gas produced through an exothermic chemical reaction, he did not cool it down before charging it into the balloon. He subsequently found that after some time, the volume of the balloon deflated. He fixed the system by cooling the hydrogen before charging it into the balloon and achieved the first manned-balloon flight.
