Description

The Aeronauts is the true story behind the forthcoming Major Motion Picture, telling the daring life and death escapades of pioneering Victorian balloonist James Glaisher.

In 1862, ambitious scientist James Glaisher set out to do the impossible: ascend higher into the skies than ever before. A pioneer of weather forecasting and of photography, he wanted to take ground-breaking research measurements from different altitudes. Before aeroplanes, the only unpredictable available method of air transportation was the hot air balloon. This is his memoir, detailing death-defying air ballon journeys in his own words. Soon to be a movie starring Eddie Redmayne as Glaisher.

Auteur

James Glaisher (1809-1903) was an English meteorologist, aeronaut and astronomer who worked at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich for forty-three years. He was a founding member of the Meteorological Society and the Aeronautical Society of Great Britain. He is most famous as a pioneering balloonist and his ascent on 5th September 1862 along with Henry Tracey Coxwell broke the world record for altitude.
