Jules Verne was a dreamer who could make the reader fly to every corner of the earth and even over the moon. Written in 1865 with limited scientific knowledge and an impossibility to ever reach the moon, he wrote a book giving somewhat accurate calculation of the distance between the earth and the moon. The book follows The Baltimore Gun Club as they build an enormous Columbiad space gun which launches three people into outer space.
