Zero Recorded at High Altitude.
New York, Oct. 30. That a balloon
has reached a height of 4t,Gb'0 feet
and there recorded a temperature of
111 degrees below zero, fahrenhelt,
was one of the statements made in
the course of an address at the last
day's discussion of the aeronautical
congress heie by Professor A. Law
lence Rotch of the Blue Hill observa
Professor Rotch told of his long
series of experiments with miniature
balloons for the purpose of testing
currents and securing temperatures at
high altitudes. The balloons are
made of rubber and carry special in
struments for recording distance trav
eled, altitude and temperature, which
are attached to a parachute. When
at a great height the hydrogen, with
which the balloons are filled, expands
to an extent where the balloon Itself
explodes and the parachutes carrying
the Instruments and the records made
on the trip floats down to earth.
During the course of his experi
ments Professor Rotch has sent up
some eighty balloons and a great num
ber of the parachutes have been re
turned to him.
When the balloons nre released they
travel upwards for about two hours
and then remain nenrly stationary for
another hour before they explode.
The descent of the parachute requires
about an hour more. The longest
flight of any one of the balloons was
Professor Ttotch said that his ex
periments also showed that at a dis
tance of about eight miles from the

been falling at the rate of about one
degree for each 200 or 300 yards, be
