Fact or fable, you can find out

How is it possible to know if something is a fact or fable?

We know that if something is a fact, it can be proved, such as the aerodynamics of airplane flight. If something is a fable, it’s a story not founded on facts, such as that man will never fly because flying machines are heavier than air. People believed this fable for centuries until the Wright brothers flew their homemade Flyer in 1903. Even then, in 1906, Scientific American published an article, “The Wright Aeroplane and Its Fabled Performances.”
