Around the Solar System in 80 Days
Jonathan Ammon, author
A futuristic retelling of the classic Jules Verne adventure! In 2078, London billionaire Phileas Fogg wagers his fortune that a prototype engine can take him and his French robot Pass-Par-2 to the outer solar system and back in less than eighty days. Their cosmic journey will take them to the Moon, Mars, Ceres, and several moons of Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus before a final showdown with the Most Wanted Man in the Universe on the frozen dwarf planet Pluto. On a thrilling adventure through craters and canyons, volcanoes and geysers, bottomless skies and alien oceans, the steadfast Englishman and his excitable mechanical valet will face challenges both natural and man-made, but the one obstacle that may prove unbeatable is the ever-ticking clock. Inspired by the real discoveries of the Cassini, Dawn, and New Horizons spacecraft.
