Auguste Piccard

Prof. Auguste Piccard, Belgian Physicist and his aide, Charles Kipfer, were reported, May 28, to have reached a height of 52,500 feet over the Tyrolean Alps. This is but 300 feet less than ten miles and establishes a new altitude record. The flight was made in a specially constructed metal ball compartment attached to a balloon. Prof. Piccard, left, and Kipfer work on the balloon, a short time before they made their record ascent, May 28, 1931. (AP Photo)
