Summary
A pair of unlikely explorers journey to the moon in this imaginative tale of science and adventure from the author of The War of the Worlds Hounded by creditors, Mr. Bedford retreats to a remote English village, where he meets the eccentric Mr. Cavor. Though he may not look it, Cavor is a genius and one of the world's greatest inventors. His breakthrough is cavorite, an astonishing new substance manufactured from helium that is not bound by the laws of gravity. Bedford immediately sees the business potential of Cavor's creation, reckoning a ship made of cavorite could take him the moon--the first step on a path to riches beyond his wildest dreams. When Bedford and Cavor set out for the moon in a cavorite sphere, they find the Earth's satellite to be more wonderful than either of them ever imagined. But they soon discover they are not alone on the lush lunar surface--and the natives are not exactly friendly. A thrilling adventure story that offers fascinating insights into the nature of mankind, The First Men in the Moon is a timeless classic from "the father of modern science fiction."
