Details: Often referred to as “The Father of Science Fiction,” Jules Verne wrote many fanciful tales. But, in 1870, he wrote a forward-looking sequel to his tale about space travel using surprisingly accurate calculations. The Baltimore Gun Club had launched a manned projectile all the way to the moon, but that was where his 1865 story had ended, leaving readers to wonder at their fate. Can they make it to the moon and back? Find out in this prophetic, classic story, amazingly similar to the Apollo missions nearly a century later.
