Micromégas is a 1752 novella by the French philosopher and satirist Voltaire. The tale recounts the visit to Earth of a being from a planet circling the star Sirius, and of his companion from the planet Saturn. Voltaire also used it in Zadig. The story is organized into seven brief chapters. 6 million times greater in circumference than the Earth. They discuss the differences between their planets.
