Jules Verne died 100 years ago this spring. We'll talk about his legacy to literature and science, and take a look at two research projects he might have appreciated: drilling to the center of the Earth and finding the right place to live on the Moon.


Brian Taves, Kluge Staff Fellow, Library of Congress. Trustee, North American Jules Verne Society in Washington, D.C.
