Journey To The Center Of The Earth Jules Verne

1027 words - 5 pages

“Science, my lad, has been built upon many errors; but they are errors which it was good to fall into, for they led to the truth.” Journey to the center of the earth by Jules Verne is a science fiction that tell the story of a man Axel discovering a deciphered text, his strong head uncle Professor Lidenbrock, a man intelligent in science and Hans Bjelke, a Danish speaking Icelander and well hunter.Once Axel reveals the code to his uncle the Professor, he departs for Iceland immediately. He takes axel who was reluctant and tried to talk him out of with him and along the way he meets with Hans whom was suggested to them. He joins them on this trip to the center of the earth in order to figure out the code and to find unknown spices and many other things. On this journey many obstacles came and one by one somehow they group seemed to over come them. When in reality many of this things they faced are impossible to get to yet overcome. I discovered that even though most of Verne's ideas about what the interior of the earth contains have since been disproved with different fictional sciences the book still manages to include science fiction and real geography.

He says to have discovered a passage to the center of the Earth through Iceland which is not yet discovered to be true. As stated by Jules Verne in his book there are volcanic tubes that could lead an exploration to the center of the Earth. Two main issues that prevent this search of the Earths core are heat and pressure. The deeper we go into the Earth, the hotter it gets and the higher the pressure is. To break into the rocky materials, which throughout the book he mentions, different things about then earth crust when it came it them using tools they made to break it is impossible. There is no such tool that is capable of braking into the different layers of the earth. That makes it impossible for the three to have gotten as far as they had.
In Jules book during the Journey, he brings uncanny prehistoric creatures the Pterichthys, Dipterides, Leptotherium, and others back to life. In chapter twenty-seven while still looking around...
