THE AERONAUTS: MOVIE IN THE MAKING
Historic balloon sighting reported in Oxfordshire, Great Britain! Obviously, this is the next balloon movie coming up, starring Felicity Jones and Eddie Redmayne as balloon pioneer Henry Coxwell and scientist James Glaisher (they obviously got the sexes mixed up on the first one!). ;-)
In September 1862, Coxwell and Glaisher set an altitude record when flying to 8.800 meters – without oxygen! It was only with his teeth that Coxwell managed to operate the valve of the balloon before passing out.
Should be an interesting movie! :-)
