Julien in the Lab

Le directeur du laboratoire, M. Julien G. Éprouvette, disapru à Paris le 31 mai 1901. Un mystère jamais résolu.

Did he go back to the future to prevent the discovery of plastic?

Did he go back in time to find a power source that did not involve fossil fuels?

Did he go underground, hoping to find a way to prevent the Spanish Flu?

Perhaps we will never know.

NB Shhh! This is a cadeau for my son Julien about to start the last year of his Chemistry Degree. C’est un secret.
