Auguste Antoine Piccard was a Swiss physicist, inventor and explorer, known for his record-breaking helium-filled balloon flights, with which he studied Earth's upper atmosphere and cosmic rays, and for his invention of the first bathyscaphe, FNRS-2, with which he made a number of unmanned dives in 1948 to explore the ocean's depths. Piccard also was the first to witness views of earth from 10 miles up. It was stated in a 1931 Popular Science magazine that “It [i.e., Earth] seemed a flat disk with upturned edge”
