Abstract

DURING the last ascent of the balloon F.NM.S. (August 18, 1934), we had the opportunity of measuring with precision the intensity of cosmic rays at altitudes of about 12,000 m., 15,000 m. and 16,000 m., by means of the ionisation chamber (Kolhorster type) which was used during our previous ascent with Prof. A. Piccard (August 18, 1932).
