A Daring Trip To Mars by Max Valier:
Science Fiction Inventions, Technology and Ideas
Well-written tale of a, well, rather daring trip to Mars by a true rocketry enthusiast. Lots of interesting ideas, including the idea of using the moon as a refueling station on the way to Mars, and how to generate electrical power on the Moon without electronics. Not to mention steering between the nuclei of two great comets!
Used when the ship is falling through a planetary atmosphere.
Iron Inlay Plates
Works perfectly with an electromagnetic table to maintain place settings.
Solar Power Apparatus
An ingenious device to gather solar energy, melt water, power a turbine and get hydrogen and oxygen fuel from ice.
The monotony of space travel could drive you crazy.
