An Ancient Novel About Aliens, UFOs, and Robots Written in the 2nd Century

From fiction to fact?

Nearly two millennia before Jules Verne and H. G. Wells started writing about science fiction, Lucian of Samosata, a Syrian satirist and rhetorician introduced the world to science fiction...

He envisioned a future where humankind would find alien life, take place in interplanetary warfare, and come to know artificial life among other things.

Lucian of Samosata is widely recognized as one of the earliest novelists in Western Civilization, and many scholars argue he is the father of science fiction.
