Travels in the air
Sobre o livro
The Aeronauts is the true story behind the forthcoming Major Motion Picture of the death-defying adventures of pioneering Victorian balloonist and scientist James Glaisher In 1862.
Ambitious scientist James Glaisher set out to do the impossible: ascend higher into the skies than ever before to establish his ground-breaking research. Glaisher's death-defying journey forms the story of the forthcoming Major Motion Picture The Aeronauts, starring Eddie Redmayne as Glaisher and Felicity Jones as his balloon companion, Amelia Wren.
Written in his own words, The Aeronauts chronicles Glaisher's incredible flights and discoveries first hand, as well as his observations on the pioneers who came before and inspired him. With an introduction by Professor Liz Bentley, Chief Executive at the Royal Meteorological Society, of which Glaisher was a founding member in 1850.
