James Glaisher (1809-1903)

There is a new film coming out featuring the life of the meteorologist, aeronaut, and astronomer James Glaisher.

It concentrates on his ballooning activities and is titled ‘The Aeronauts‘.

It is not 100% historically accurate as the character of Glaisher’s assistant Henry Coxwell has been replaced by a fictional  female Amelia Wren.
