Great American Aloe in bloom, 1844. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

Great American Aloe in bloom, 1844. Creator: Unknown

Great American Aloe in bloom, 1844. A very fine specimen of the Agave Americana, or Great American Aloe, in a state of blossoming... in the garden of the Rev. E. Duke, at Lake House, near Amesbury, Wilts. Such an event always attracts a good deal of attention...the plant being somewhat uncommon, and requiring many years in this climate - from 70 to 100 - to enable it to flower, after which it dies. The flower stem...shot upward with astonishing rapidity, sometimes amounting to a growth of six inches in twenty-four hours. Thirty-six lateral branches...spring from the central stem, much after the fashion of a candelabrum. These branches are laden at their extremities with a profusion of flower buds, averaging, as we believe, 150 in a bunch. Our engraving shows the plant, with a temporary staircase, by which visitors may ascend, the more closely to inspect the flowers'. From "Illustrated London News", 1844, Vol V

A huge balloon was necessary for Professor Piccards ascent, c1936 (c1937)

A huge balloon was necessary for Professor Piccard's ascent, c1936 (c1937).. Jean Felix Piccard (1884-1963) was a Swiss-born American chemist, engineer, professor and high-altitude balloonist. Piccard invented clustered high-altitude balloons and the plastic balloon. In 1936 he flew a cellophane balloon, 25 feet wide, and made of tapered 33-foot gores and 1-inch 3M Scotch transparent tape. The balloon floated at 50, 000 feet, and in ten hours travelled over 600 miles before landing near Huntsville, Arkansas. From Wonders of World Aviation, Vol. 1, by Clarence Winchester. [The Amalgamated Press Ltd, London, c1937]

The instrument was known as the Leviathan of Parsonstown'. With it Lord Rosse discovered 15 spiral nebulae, and named the Crab nebula.
