Such a motor possesses great advantages. There is no danger of firing the volume of hydrogen above, and it has a constant weight, there being no decrease by combustion. In making his experiments M. Tissan-' dier employed a small oblong balloon ending in conical points. This balloon, which is like that used by M. Gift'ard, is 3 ui. long by l'3O m. in diameter, and has a volume of about 2200 litres. Inflated with pure hydrogen it has an ascensional force of 2 kilogrammes. It is worked by a small eleotric motor resembling the Siemens dynamo, and. weighing 220 grammes. This works a light propoller 40 inohes in diameter.
