aerostatics defined in 1939 yearaerostatics - Aerostatics (Gr. aer, air; statikos, at a standstill);
aerostatics - Term originally used to denote the science which deals with atmospheric pressure, the equilibrium of the atmosphere and other gases and the control of such objects as balloons. The word is used in the study of the art and science of air navigation as applied to lighter-than-air craft, i.e. an airship which is buoyant in the air because its gas envelope contains hydrogen or helium, gases which make the all-up weight lighter than the volume of air which the aircraft displaces throughout its altitude range. See Aeronautics; Airship; Flight.
