Gyrogravitics And Graviton Polarity Generators
moves spaceships between planets;
keeps air and heat on asteroids;
moves a terraformed asteroid to Alpha Centauri slower than light.
James Blish's graviton polarity generators:
keep air on cities in space;
move spaceships and cities between stars faster than light;
move a planet between galaxies faster than light.
Gyrogravitics are a poor man's graviton polarity generators.
So far, we have compared Anderson's Tales Of The Flying Mountains to other future histories by:
Tales describes the Asteroid Revolution whereas Wells' The Shape Of Things To Come describes a Terrestrial Revolution.
