Glaisher's balloon experiments. Two pigeons that were thrown from a balloon (seen in the background) flown by the English meteorologist James Glaisher (1809-1903). The balloon reached 37,000 feet over Wolverhampton, England, on 5 September 1862. One pigeon is flying, while the other is dead and falling through the air. Artwork by French balloonist Albert Tissandier, from "Voyages de Mr Glaisher", by Camille Flammarion.
