Caption: Glaisher and Coxwell's balloon flights. At left is the English meteorologist and aeronaut James Glaisher (1809-1903). At right is the English aeronaut Henry Tracey Coxwell (1819-1900). Several sets of scientific measuring instruments are in the basket with them. Between 1862 and 1866, Glaisher and Coxwell made numerous ascents in order to measure the temperature and humidity of the atmosphere as high as they could safely ascend.
