C. C. Baly (21), making use of the observations of the Russian expedition in Spitsbergen in 1899, accepts as the wave-lengths of the three principal auroral lines 557 o, 4276 and 3912; and he identifies all three and ten other auroral lines ranging between 5570 and 3707 with krypton lines measured by himself.
The majority of the krypton lines which Baly identifies with auroral lines require for their production a Leyden jar and spark gap.
In addition to these, he mentions other auroral lines as very probably krypton lines, but in their case the wave-lengths which he quotes from Paulsen (22) are given to only three significant figures, so that the identification is more uncertain.
1872), who from 1894 had assisted him at University College, London, and in 1903 was appointed professor of chemistry at University College, Bristol, enabled him to announce the existence in the atmosphere of three new gases, neon, krypton and xenon.
The elements are usually divided into two classes, the metallic and the non-metallic elements; the following are classed as non-metals, and the remainder as metals: Of these hydrogen, chlorine, fluorine, oxygen, nitrogen, argon, neon, krypton, xenon and helium are gases, bromine is a liquid, and the remainder are solids.
It is found that mercury vapour, helium, argon and its associates (neon, krypton, &c.) have the value 1.67; hence we conclude that these gases exist as monatomic molecules.
Travers have obtained evidence of the existence in the atmosphere of three new gases, besides helium, to which have been assigned the names of neon, krypton and xenon.
healing a rift on New Krypton or staying with Lois on Earth.
Superman Krypton Coaster: Ever since it opened in 2000, this 170 foot tall coaster has been one of the park's most popular.
The series premiere debuted not with the destruction of Krypton as detailed in the Superman lexicon, but with the meteor shower that brought Kryptonian orphan Kal-El to Earth.
By season's end Clark is introduced to a gorgeous young woman who has superpowers and claims to be from Krypton.
Its wave-length is probably very near 55'71 tenth-metres, and it is very close to, if not absolutely coincident with, a prominent line in the spectrum of krypton.

Reaching the hotel across slippery logs and rotten planking was reminiscent of the Krypton Factor, particularly carrying all our baggage.
The periodic law (see Element) permits a grouping of the elements according to their valency as follows: - Group 0: helium, neon, argon, krypton and xenon appear to be devoid of valency.
The synthesis of nitric acid by passing electric sparks through moist air by Cavendish is a famous piece of experimental work, for in the first place it determined the composition of this important substance, and in the second place the minute residue of air which would not combine, although ignored for about a century, was subsequently examined by Lord Rayleigh and Sir William Ramsay, who showed that it consists of a mixture of elementary substances - argon, krypton, neon and xenon (see Argon).
Guests with loose shoes, flip flops, or sandals should remove them before riding Superman Krypton Coaster.
Dr. Swann was a researcher who'd intercepted messages for decades about the coming of the last son of Krypton.
