"Created at the turn of the century, travel by airship appeared to be the great new excitement of the twentieth century. There is no reference whatsoever to aeroplanes, pointing at a possible date around 1902. There are many jokes about the impossibility of space travel - even the very idea was preposterous. On the lid of the game, the advertisement for ‘marsconigrams’ refers to the sensational achievement of Marconi, who sent a message 2000 miles from Cornwall to Newfoundland in December 1901."
