These gorgeous 1871s illustrations for Jules Verne’s Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea by artist Alphonse de Neuville are hauntingly reminiscent of Edward Gorey’s illustrations for H. G. Wells’s War of the Worlds.
Also see these stunning 1964 illustrations for the Verne biography The Man Who Invented the Future.

I am spending the next 24 days in London supporting the launch and mission control for the spacecraft encapsulated in the rocket pictured above. I will be sitting on console for Propulsion (as shown here earlier, from the mission rehearsal).
Any suggestions on things to do/see in London between now and December 27th?
Imperial war museum, hearing christmas carols in London’s center, visiting the city at night…
