From the Earth to the Moon (French: De la terre à la lune) is an 1865 novel by Jules Verne.

From the Earth to the Moon (French: De la terre à la lune) is an 1865 novel by Jules Verne. It tells the story of the Baltimore Gun Club, a post-American Civil War society of weapons enthusiasts, and their attempts to build an enormous Columbiad space gun and launch three people-the Gun Club's president, his Philadelphian armor-making rival, and a French poet-in a projectile with the goal of a Moon landing. Five years later, Verne wrote a sequel called Around the Moon.

The clayey earth and sand had been made extremely hard by the heat, but with the aid of machines, the workers overcame that mixture, which was still hot from contact with the cast-iron walls of the cannon. Wherever fate leads them, from the tropics to the far north, their business instinct must find some useful outlet. That is why people who had come to Florida entirely out of curiosity, to watch the operations of the Gun Club, let themselves be drawn into business ventures as soon as they settled down in Tampa.

From the Earth to the Moon by Jules Verne Chapter 22. That same day all America heard of the affair of Captain Nicholl and President Barbicane, as well as its singular denouement. From that day forth, Michel Ardan had not one moment’s rest. Deputations from all corners of the Union harassed him without cessation or intermission.

Jules Verne wrote "From Earth to Moon" in 1865, a century before the actual small step for man, one giant leap for mankind. In his novel, Verne introduces the Baltimore Gun Club, a group of Gun enthusiasts with a wide membership and an unquenchable thirst for action, yet they find themselves without a war to fight and nothing notable to occupy them.

What does Jules Verne say about the weight of the voyagers as they travel to the moon? Here is a short passage from .

In this part, the three travelers are in the space ship (which is just a giant shell that was shot from a canon) and traveling too the moon. The "neutral point" that they refer to is the point where the gravitational force from the moon and the Earth are the same, but in opposite directions

The War of the Rebellion is over, and the members of the American Gun Club, bored with inactivity, look around for a new project.
At last they have it: “We will build the greatest projectile the world has ever seen and make the moon our 38th state!”
When From the Earth to the Moon was published in 1865, it was regarded as pure fantasy. Who could imagine a rocket that would carry men and animals through space?
Today, like so many of Jules Verne’s prophecies, space travel is a reality.
Here’s a fun adventure story that shows how Verne, with foresight that is at times almost eerily accurate, envisioned a trip to the moon.
