University scientists at the En-

V-2 AND AEROBEE rockets
fired at White Sands, New Mexico
carry special steel bottles aloft.
The bottle installations were de-
signed by Norman J. Wenk, and
are prepared in the Institute's
laboratories. They are fitted witlf
a mechanism which opens them 80
second after launching - about
40 miles up, Jones revealed.
After a few seconds the intake
tube of the bottle is pinched to-
gether and a small charge of
powder ignites, melting a solder
covering and sealing the tube.
Elton A. Wenzel opens the bot-
tles, and he and Prof. F. A. Pan-
eth in England, who did the origi-
nal analyses, examine the samples.
Analyses thus far indicate that
the atmosphere up to 40 miles has
the some relative proportion of
gases as at groufid level.
The data will aid in determining
the temperature and density of
high altitude air, and will be used
in studying rocket design and
weather, Jones said.
