Absorbing ability of substance sharply increases with growth of Z and consequently lead is a much more effective absorber of high- altitude radiation than air at identical thickness in g/cm2. It is necessary to outline thus that the truth was found out by R. Millikan and his colleagues as a result of measurements of the absorption factor of high-altitude radiation in water on high-mountainous lakes. In August 1925, Millikan and Cameron (1926) with the purpose of definitively denying the idea of the existence of radiation having non-radioactive origin, began a series of experiments in Southern California on lakes Muir and Arrowhead.

Cm–3s–1 more than ionization rate on a surface of the Earth. What is the reason for such substantial growth of ionization rate with height, which was observed by V. Hess many times, and simultaneously by all devices? V. Hess well understood that "if one were to adhere to the point of view that only known radioactive substances in the earth‘s crust and in the atmosphere let out -radiation making ionization in the closed vessel, there are serious difficulties at an explanation of the received results".

Chapter 2 EARLY STUDIES OF „HIGH ALTITUDE RADIATION‟ AND PROOFS OF ITS EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL ORIGIN The science is not a complete book. Each important success brings new questions. Any development finds out in due course new and deeper difficulties. 1. EXPERIMENTS OF W. KOLHÖRSTER AND PROOF OF EXISTING HIGH-ALTITUDE RADIATION (1913-1914) One should not think that scientists immediately agreed with V. Hess that ―Hess radiation‖ really exists and has an extraterrestrial origin. The opposite, even the problem of the existence of this radiation was discussed for many years after the experiments of V.
