*Entretiens sur la pluralité des mondes (Conversations about the plurality of life on other planets) is a setting of passages from the book of the same name by the 17thcentury French polymath, Bernard de Fontanelle. Meant as a brief course in astronomy, it takes the form of a charming conversation between Fontanelle and a young aristocratic lady of intelligence and wit. His speculations about extraterrestrial life were, sadly, not to prove accurate.
