Bon Anniversaire Jules Verne!

So it’s the birthday of Jules Verne, the founder of the feast.  Verne’s writings are often considered the first science fiction stories.  His stories explored every facet of our universe before most men even dreamed of it.  A true pioneer, we steampunk enthusiasts owe him a huge thank you.  His stories are the very foundation of our world.  So, here’s to Monsieur Verne!

If you wish to learn more about him, Wikipedia has a few words.

Today, Google has made a very entertaining doodle to honor him.  Go find the divers and the treasure.
