It never occurred to thirty-year-old Jonathan Pope that there could be other life outside that of the planet Earth. Even when Bernard Bradbury explained his theory, that if the planet Earth contained life because it revolved around the sun, then there must be life on other planets with a sun similar to theirs; John Pope was still not convinced.
Those weren’t Bernard’s exact words, but it was exactly what he meant, but in London, England at the close of the nineteenth century nothing was farther from people’s minds. They were more interested in the change in fashion or the stock exchange or the price of good wine or gold. As far as they were concerned all that the sky was full of was stars, and the notion that there were people like them were out there in that cold, black void living on a planet like ours, and were looking at us through their telescopes, was treated as a joke.
