Dr. Ox's Experiment is a story by the French writer and pioneer of science-fiction, Jules Verne, published in 1872. It describes an experiment by one Dr. Ox and his assistant Gedeon Ygene. In the unusually stuffy Flemish town of Quiquendone, Dr. Ox begins to surreptitiously pump a gas through a network also connecting the gas lamps resulting in the townspeople becoming more lively and acting younger and younger.

---------- About the Author---------- 

Jules Gabriel Verne (1828–1905) was a French author who pioneered the science-fiction genre. He is best known for his novels Journey to the Center of the Earth, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea, and Around the World in Eighty Days. Verne wrote about space, air, and underwater travel before navigable aircraft and practical submarines were invented, and before any means of space travel had been devised. One of the most translated author of all time, he is often referred to as one of the Fathers of Science Fiction.
