On September 30th, 1933 the high-altitude balloon USSR-1 reached an altitude of 19 km with Prokofyev, Godunov and Birnbaum aboard. In 1932, they formed a committee on exploring stratosphere. One of the goals of the committee was construction of another high-altitude balloon that could reach an altitude of 25 km with people aboard.
