Ten Miles Higher in an AIR-TIGHT BALL

A Huge yellow balloon soared skyward, some weeks ago, from Augsberg, -Germany. Rather than a basket, it trailed an air-tight black-and-silver aluminum ball. Within Prof. Auguste Piccard, physicist, and Charles Kipfer aimed to explore the air 50,000 feet up. Seventeen hours later, immediately after getting offered up for dead replica cartier watches , they returned safely from an estimated height of more than 52,000 feet, virtually ten miles, shattering each aircraft altitude record. Oxygen tanks kept them alive when they created observations. Records of their instruments are now getting checked and interpreted. First to rise safely into the upper layer of the earth's atmosphere, cartier knockoff watches they found the air stress at ten miles altitude so low - one-tenth of that at sea level-that a man exposed to it would perish substantially as a deep-sea fish bursts of its own internal pressure when brought for the earth's surface. Piccard and his help found cosmic rays, mysterious radiations from outer space, much more highly effective than in the earth's surface, and gaged their intensity. The explorers trapped samples on the upper air, "blue air," as Piccard reported it to appear, in cylinders. Evaluation may perhaps prove it exceptionally wealthy in ozone,the intensely blue gas supposedly accountable for the Heaviside layer or "radio roof." The story of their adventure surpasses fiction. During the ascent, the aluminum ball started to leak. They plugged it desperately with vaseline and cotton waste, stopping the leak. Within the initially half hour the balloon shot upward nine miles. By way of portholes,the observers saw the earth by way of copper-colored, then bluish, haze. It seemed a flat disk with upturned edge. In the ten-mile level the sky appeared a deep, dark blue. With observations total, the observers attempted to descend, but could not. Even though their oxygen tanks emptied, they floated aimlessly over Germany, Austria, and Italy. Cool evening air contracted the balloon's gas and brought them down on a glacier near Ober-Gurgl, Austria, with 1 hour's provide of oxygen to spare replica cartier paypal .

Ten Miles High in an AIR-TIGHT BALL (Aug, 1931)

If it began to leak then the ball wasn't specifically air-tight...
Also, with its tethers attached the capsule appears a great deal like 1 of your from War of the Worlds.
