Fantasy Flights to the Moon - Livestream

Over the centuries, storytellers have written tales of flights to the Moon. In this graphic presentation, Mr. Garfinkle will discuss these fantasy flights. The presentation will include illustrations from the old books the stories were, in most cases, first published in. The images show the various methods the space travelers employed to make their journeys to our nearest celestial neighbor. These include crafts that were powered by such things as animals, bottles of dew, giant magnets, ships, whirlwinds, clouds, volcanic eruptions, hot air balloons, cannons, and undisclosed powers. This talk is in part based on the same section in his new major lunar observers’ handbook, Luna Cognita.

Speaker: Bob Garfinkle, FRAS
