From the Earth to the Moon; and, Round the Moon

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

From the Earth to the Moon and ‘Round the Moon is the first story of space exploration and remains a beloved work of daring exploits-and surprisingly accurate scientific conjecture. When the members of the Baltimore Gun Club-bored Civil War veterans-decide to fill their time by embarking on a project to shoot themselves to the moon, the race is on to raise money, overcome engineering challenges, and convince detractors that they’re anything but “Lunatics. ” With this work, Verne inspired the first science fiction film, 1902’s Le Voyage dans la lune, and accurately predicted that that ideal location for a space base is in Florida.

MUST READ BOOK!

One of those book you just can't stop reading until you reach the last page!

Skip it

Not his best work. The book tends to get lost is a universe of description that doesn't lend anything to the story or plot. It was difficult to maintain interest which was unlike the other Verne books I've read. I'd skip this one for one more interesting.

Good classic.

A good account of how men back in 1800s thought about science and technology. Well read.
