From the Earth to the Moon (English)
Jules VerneFrom the Earth to the Moon is a humorous science fantasy story written in 1865 by Jules Verne and is one of the earliest entries in that genre. It tells the story of three well-to-do members of a post-American Civil War gun club who build an enormous sky-facing columbiad and ride a spaceship fired from it to the moon. The actual trip into space is covered in Around the Moon, the 1870 novel that Verne wrote following 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
