Amalgamating futuristic technologies and expeditions into the future, this is a scintillating collection by Verne. This short work combines sights of the future as well as bird's eye view of the contemporary era.

Just as the narrator starts the ascent of his balloon, a stranger jumps into its car.

The intruder takes advantage of the long journey to recount the history of incidents related to the epic of lighter-than-air travel
