General Note: Title from eBook information screen..
Summary, etc.: A stunning trip across the galaxy and into the future Focusing on Richard Ayrault, a stockholder of the Terrestrial Axis Straightening Company, A Journey in Other Worlds takes readers across the solar system to Jupiter and Saturn. On Jupiter, Astor creates a fantastically outsize world of gushing volcanoes, crashing waterfalls, and otherworldly flora and fauna. In contrast, his Saturn is an introspective and philosophical land. While Ayrault's journey is the main attraction, it is Astor's vision of a future with maglev trains, a police force equipped with cameras, and an interconnected network of phones, solar power, wind power, and air travel that will astonish. This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
