Auguste Piccard rocket flight...

Item # 579273

January 4, 1933

THE NEW YORK TIMES, January 4, 1933

* Auguste Piccard
* Rocket travel over Ocean?

This 40 page newspaper has one column headlines on page 21 that include: "PICCARD WOULD FLY ROCKET OVER OCEAN," "Believes His Invention Can Be Made Practical for Mail And Passenger Service," "Half Hour For Crossing" and more. See photos for test on Piccard's hopes for Transatlantic flight by the use of rocket power. Interesting as he was widely known for his expertize in ballooning, not rockets.

Other news of the day throughout. Light browning, otherwise nice condition.
