By the Associated Press. PHILADELPHIA, April 26.—A thick moving iron vapor that hangs in the atmosphere of the sun was among the scientific discoveries reported to the American Philosophical Society today The swirling of the hot, vaporized iron, measured only during total eclipses of the sun, was reported by Dr Samuel A. Mitchell, director of the Leander McCormick Observatory of the University of Virginia. There appears to be more of this iron, he said, than the proportion of water vapor in earth's atmosphere, and it circulates up and down. But it can form no mists, molten rain or clouds, I because it is much too hot to condense somewhere around 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Some of Other Mixtures. Some of the other mixtures compos ing the sun’s "air” are calcium, rising to about 8,600 miles, hydrogen to 7,000 and helium to 5,500. Dr. Mitchell said iron and hydrogen are fairly abundant. How much it would cost a man to keep cool with a refrigerator at the center of the sun was told by Prof. John O. Btewart of Princeton, in de scribing how stars are made. He said if power cost one-thousandth of a cent a kilowatt a century—that is one billionth its present price, the re frigeration bill at the sun's center would be $50,000,000 a minute. The tempera ture outside the refrigerator would be about 75,000,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Dr. Harlow Shapley, director of Har vard Observatory, described the “red shift" of light arriving from vast dis tances. suggesting that it may possibly set a limit to man's vision. The "red shift” is seen in spectro scopes and is apparent lengthening of the light rays that come from very dis tant celestial objects. The redness is due to the greater length of these rays and that in turn leads to a supposition that the celestial objects are traveling away from earth, a motion which would make their light rays longer. Distant Space Mystery. A little of the mystery of distant space was removed by Dr. John S. Plas kett, director of the Dominion Astro physical Observatory of Victoria, Brit ish Columbia. He said the "essential sameness” of the whole universe is in dicated in some recent investigations, showing that the mysterious spiral nebulae are only vast star collections like our own. Our great family of stars if seen from some far-off nebula prob ably would appear as another spinning spiral. Proof that our system is re- ! volving like the spiral nebulae he of fered in his own discoveries from ob serving about 800 stars, indicating a whirling speed of about 200 miles a sec ond, enough to cause the entire milky way to make one revolution in about 300,000,000 years. ■ ■ ■ ■■■ • ■ ■ - Democrat* to Open Campaign.
