More examples of how life imitates art, or how art predicts reality, can be gleaned from Verne's book From the Earth to the Moon. Witness people today who long for the good old days, such as the copper and leather fashions of the Steampunks. And secondly, how his book predicts the US Military Industrial Complex. Spooky!< Less

It's called the Nautilus, and was built by the mysterious Captain Nemo. Fortunately he lets the multinational crew live long enough to go exploring with him. Until, like many mad scientist types, he gets bored of his quarry and goes a bit nuts.

The title refers to the total distance they traveled: 20,000 leagues. Enjoy!< Less
