Fiction in the News Articles
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.
