A Columbus of Space


The hero of this tale of scientific wonder is called "A Columbus of Space" because he is the first to take advantage fo the power of "inter-atomic energy," which enables him to navigate the Ocean of Ether and sail to the shores of another world than ours. He constructs a curious spool-shaped machine and "sets sail" into space, arriving with his companions on the planet Venus.

In this classic space travel novel from 1909, author Garrett P. Serviss not only provides the reader with an exhilirating adventure, but also one of the first atomic-powered spacecraft in fiction.
