The Adjustable Cosmos- A tale, unfortunately fictional, that tells of an astrologer under the Holy Roman Emperor Frederick III, and his mission to move the stars.
When pressured by the Vatican to engage the Ottomans in war, Frederick III consulted his astrologer to predict how the campaign would fare. It didn’t look good, according to the magic 8-ball of mysticism. So they decided to go up to space, and adjust the stars in their favor.
This tale of 15th century space travel is fictional, but it’s based on real characters. That’s what makes it so fun. That, and the moon covered in phosphorescent seagulls.
