a space traveller; an astronaut
[Y]es—the space flyers missed their greatest opportunity by not trying to intercept messages from other planets. The ray was even pointed to Jupiter, but no attempt was made to use the radio.

You are a space-flyer who has lost his job… I shall give you a new one.

‘The Moon has no atmosphere!’ Englert exploded. ‘Don’t kid yourself,’ the space flyer said. ‘I was there and I set the Moon Queen down right on that atmosphere. They can change all the text books.’
Betty and Tommy shook off their disappointment, not that they had much choice. Tommy crossed over to the inner hatch and swung it open to let their returning tourists go aboard the scramferry. Veteran space flyers now, they greeted B&T with grins, nods, handshakes, and cheerful asides, and slipped them envelopes that surely contained tips.
