Forgotten Futures II: The Log of the Astronef
Adventure 02: Moon ’02 Session Two
Separated by many miles, yet brought together through remarkable advances in SCIENCE, the Whartson Hall Aethernauts embark on a voyage to the wondrous future!
It is 1902 and the discovery of the R.force is changing the direction of mankind’s future. The world is gripped with excitement about space travel and fears of what flying battleships might mean for the safety of nations. In Yorkshire, Lord and Lady Redgrave are preparing for a return to the moon, to further explore the mysterious lunar pyramid and discover what caused the death of an entire civilisation. This time, however, the trip will not be mere sightseeing, but a full scientific expedition staffed with some of the finest candidates from across England. And Lady Hester Valentine and Dr James Crowther, of course.
WARNING – May contain ukulele and knob gags.
