“Robur the Conqueror” is a science fiction story written by Jules Verne and first published in 1886. The story concerns Robur, a mysterious and brilliant inventor who introduces so-called heavier than air craft like airplanes and helicopters to a world dependent on lighter-than-air balloons to fly. Robur takes three balloon enthusiasts on a three-week round-the-world trip in his huge airplane, the Albatross.
