Planetarios, Professor. Professor Planetarious was created by the Danish author Sophis Michaelis and appeared in Himmelskibet (1914), which was filmed in 1917.

Professor Planetarious is a Planetary Romance Hero. Planetarious is a pacifist inventor who despairs of Europe and humanity during World War One. So he invents a spaceship and goes to Mars with his son. The Martians, a white-robed, peace-loving race of vegetarians, hear them out, and the daughter of the Martians’ high priest agrees to return to Earth with the Professor and help bring about peace on Earth. This call is met with enthusiasm by everyone except the Kaiser, who is then killed by a bolt of lightning sent by the Martians.
