SUN SURROUNDED
BY THICK IRON MIST
Discovery Reported by Direc
tor of Virginia University
Observatory.
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.
