From the Earth to the Moon & Around the Moon

By Jules Vernes

From the Earth to the Moon tells the story of the Baltimore Gun Club, and their attempts to build an enormous space gun and launch three people in a projectile with the goal of a moon landing. The story focuses on the funding and construction of the gun and the projectile, and concludes with the moon launch. Around the Moon was written five years after From the Earth to the Moon because of a public outcry. The first novel left the reader in suspense after three astronauts were launched into space. The story follows their adventures as they race towards the Moon, and embark on new discoveries.

The Author

Jules Vernes

Jules Gabriel Verne (8 February 1828 – 24 March 1905) was a French author who helped pioneer the science-fiction genre. He is best known for his novels A Journey to the Center of the Earth (1864), From the Earth to the Moon (1865), Twenty Thousand Leagues under the Sea (1869–1870), Around the World in Eighty Days (1873) and The Mysterious Island (1875). Verne wrote about space, air, and underwater travel before navigable aircraft and practical submarines were invented, and before any means of space travel had been devised.
