Around the World in 24 Hours by R.H. Romans:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas
Since Jules Verne wrote his story
"Around the World in 80 Days,” his fantastic effort
has been vastly eclipsed and the world has been
circled many times in a greatly reduced time, the
latest official record being 351 hours or 15 days
of flying time.
Sooner or later, we will be able to travel at
the same speed as the rotation of the earth, which
being a thousand miles an hour, will permit us
to circle the planet in 24 hours.
('Around the World in 24 Hours' by RH Romans)
Mr. Romans in his present story, shows us a
way to do so and it is not any more fantastic
than Jules Verne's story was a few decades ago.
While perhaps fantastic to-day, a human being
wilt circle this earth in 24 hours, and people now
living will see or read about this exploit, and
perhaps take part in it. Select
