Plot Synopsis:
(courtesy of D. Kytasaari -

On the coast of Algiers, French Captain Hector Servadac, his orderly Ben Zoof and the ground below their feet are ripped from the Earth by a passing comet. Their world changed around them, the pair begins exploring and is soon joined by others to make up a small colony. A Russian Count, the crew of his yacht, a group of Spaniards, a young Italian girl, a Jewish merchant and the French professor who tells them where they all are, traveling through space on a comet he's named Gallia. The only other human inhabitants of this world are a group of British soldiers, stationed on the piece of Gibraltar that was ripped away from the Earth. Confident they will soon be contacted by England in regards to their current situation, these soldiers want nothing to do with the other colonists. Meanwhile, the colonists find refuge in a volcano located on the comet and use it to survive the long journey away from the sun. When the comet completes its orbit (two years Earth time), the professor's calculations show that the comet will again make contact with the Earth.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Hector Servadac: Off on a Comet is an 1877 science fiction novel by Jules Verne. The story starts with a comet that touches the Earth in its flight and collects a few small chunks of it. Some forty people of various nations and ages are condemned to a two-year-long journey on the comet. They form a mini-society and cope with the hostile environment of the comet (mostly the cold). The size of the 'comet' is about 2300 kilometers in diameter - far larger than any comet or asteroid that actually exists.
