Caught in a storm during sea trials, the Russian prototype space vessel Boris Godunov takes first flight rather than count on the mercy of the Baltic in October.

While her salvaged Martian gravity engine was not yet fully understood, she flew and proved the theory. The bad weather of a Tuesday in 1909 would have far ranging consequences.

Another illustration for my book, Spacecraft of the First World War.

Oh Space and Time, let this not be the end

Of the Twelfth Doctor, lonesome in the snow.

He is the Universe’s greatest friend.

Won’t someone be there with their love to show?

Yes, I do love you. I really do. But I want my heart in my own hands. I want to take care of myself, with you walking right next to me. I love you, but I want to love me too.
