Science Fiction History: 1865 Jules Verne Goes From the Earth to the Moon

About Jules Verne who in 1865 published the sci-fi novel From the Earth to the Moon.

--1865. A young man from the French river town of Nantes ushered in an era of modern science fiction and space travel with a "practical" way of getting From the Earth to the Moon: Two Americans and a Frenchman were shot to the moon in a huge cylindrical "bullett" from an enormous cannon. Jules Verne, a century in advance of actual space travel, pictured even such details as the glass of water that didn't spill and the pickup at sea of the returned "capsule."
