The Incredible Adventure (1902) is about the inventor of a material
vehicle capable of carrying passengers anywhere in the universe, and devotes
considerable attention to hypothetical physical and psychological effects
of the experience of approaching and transcending the velocity of light.
The Triumph of Humankind (1911) sees the Earth moved out of its
orbit and become an interstellar vehicle itself, eventually reaching the
star Vega; it describes the adventure of our planet in its interstellar
journey, and the future of humankind as a result of that displacement.
Wireless Communication with the Stars (1930) features the development
of a system of interstellar television, which provides its protagonist
with a means of investigating life on twelve different planets scattered
throughout the galaxy, in search of a possible key to human happiness.
