Giant apes, a vast subterranean sea, and enormous sea monsters were only a few of the remarkable sights witnessed by Professor Von Hardwigg and his nephew, Harry, as they descended to Earth's core in Jules Verne's adventure tale A journey to the Center of the Earth (1864). In his later stories, Verne, who died in 1905, wrote about airplanes, space travel, submarines, and Earth satellites many years before they were developed. Most of Verne's wild ideas are no longer science fiction but technological fact. Yet we are no closer to journeying into Earth's interior than we were in Verne's time.
