Bon Voyage 5: Jules Verne

Jules Verne was a writer ahead of his time. In 1865, over one hundred years before the first man landed on the moon, Jules Verne imagined such a trip in his novel De la Terre à la Lune, From the Earth to the Moon. Here are five examples of similarities between Verne’s novel and the historical voyage:
