DISCUSSION

Unlike Jules Verne's novel FROM THE EARTH TO THE MOON, H.G. Wells in THE FIRST MEN IN THE MOONS pays little attention to plausible space technology. Most amusing of his departures from the rational is the gravity repelling "Cavorite." Discovered by Professor Cavor, the material acts as a "gravity shield" allowing Cavor's vehicle the liberty of reaching the Moon. What seemed altogether preposterous a century ago has been suggested by some recent reseach as, perhaps, in a limited sense, a possibility.
