As we note elsewhere (wink, wink) one thing that always bugged us about the ending of 2010 is that Europa is less than a million kilometers from Jupiter. Further contributions to the debate include Arntzenius (2006) and Smeenk and Wüthrich (2011, §2.2).

Indeed, what most has to be looked at, in properly utopian or dystopian fiction, is the continuity, the implied connection, which the form is intended to embody. Indeed, industrial society creates not just the consciousness characteristic of science fiction but also the very means of physically propagating science fiction in its various cultural forms, even before it was beamed as images on movie and video screens. Time traveling appears to be the perfect narrative solution for a permanent commercial success: nothing is stable and almost all elements of the narrative are interchangeable: the surroundings and time periods are changing, the main character has the ability to regenerate (to revive with different bodies and personalities), the main characters‟ companions are constantly changing too.

"A wormhole is a theoretical 'tunnel' or shortcut, predicted by Einstein's theory of relativity, that links two places in space-time - visualised above as the contours of a 3-D map, where negative energy pulls space and time into the mouth of a tunnel, emerging in another universe.

All their reminiscences are interesting enough; but do not help to dispel the suspicion that Sandbrook isn't really interested in SF as a genre working across a transmedial platform embracing print and online as well as cinematic and televisual cultures. Verne subsequently signed a contract in which he would submit new works every year to the publisher, most of which would be serialized in Hetzel's Magasin d'Éducation et de Récréation.
