Jules Verne has been a great inspiration not only in literature, his books mixes adventure, science and excitement in a wonderful mix. Perhaps his most famous books is Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and Around the World in 80 days. But another gem in among his books are From the Earth to the Moon. In this book, Verne predicts a number of things including that man will travel to the moon and that the rocket will originate from Florida, U.S.A.. But other things are not quite right, Jules Verne uses a huge cannon to shoot out the “rocket”, in order for it to leave Earth’s atmosphere.
