Why did it take 30 years longer to put wheels on our suitcases than to put a man on the moon?

    Darned if you aren't right, Lisa! Googled it: Sadow applied for a U.S. patent in 1970, and in 1972, he was granted the first successful patent on wheeled suitcases. Macy's sold the first suitcases in October 1970.

    Stable version came out in 1980.
