Micromégas is Voltaire's satirical, interplanetary romance in which a 20-mile-tall native of Sirius joins forces with a Saturnian "dwarf," a mere one mile in height, to explore the solar system. They discover that Mars has two moons – evidently a borrowing from Swift (see Swift, Jonathan and the moons of Mars).
