Punch, 19 (1850), 169.
"Very Sorry, but we have no Room"
Reports on French developments in 'that fugitive department of science'—ballooning. Believing that Dominique F J Arago and M Bixio intend to build a balloon for the Great Exhibition, discusses the problems of accommodating and securing such an invention within the exhibition building. Notes that Bixio's new invention, a 'large bunch of balloons tied together', would not leave much room for anything else in the exhibition. Urges that a separate exhibition building be used for the balloons.
