Summary
A more humorous novel of science fiction, Jules Verne's From the Earth to the Moon is regarded as one of the earliest sci-fi volumes. The novel is particularly interesting as Verne did rough calculations to determine the requirements needed to launch a shuttle to the moon. Considering there was relatively no information about space travel during his time, his numbers came surprisingly close. The novel tells the story of three rivals: the president of a gun club in Baltimore, a man who makes armor in Philadelphia, and a Frenchman. After building a giant space gun, the three launch themselves into space in a giant spaceship. Eventually, they land on the moon. The sequel, Around the Moon, details the happenings between the three on their way back to Earth
