A moon orbiting the planet Mars, more than 130 years before any were officially observed. Kindermann chose to dramatize his discovery by writing a story about an interplanetary voyage to his alleged Martian moon. Besides traveling through space and encountering alien life forms on another world, the heroes even use balloons for aerial transportation nearly forty years before the actual first balloon flight in 1783.
