Percy Greg : writer
Percy Greg wrote one of the first interplanetary novels, "Across the Zodiac: The Story of a Wrecked Record", in 1880, in which the hero uses antigravity to send his spaceship to Mars where he finds a scientifically advanced society that nevertheless has its dark side: "wrong thoughts" are against the law, and women are bought and sold.
