From the Earth to the Moon is a humorous science fantasy novel by Jules Verne and is one of the earliest entries in that genre. It tells the story of the president of a post-American Civil War gun club in Baltimore, his rival, a Philadelphia maker of armor, and a Frenchman, who builds an enormous sky-facing Columbiad space gun and launch them in a projectile/spaceship from it to a Moon landing. The story is also notable in that Verne attempted to do some rough calculations as to the requirements for the cannon and, considering the comparative lack of any data on the subject at the time; some of his figures are surprisingly close to reality. However, his scenario turned out to be impractical for safe manned space travel since a much longer muzzle would have been required to reach escape velocity while limiting acceleration to survivable limits for the passengers.

儒勒·凡尔纳的《从地球到月球》讲述了南北战争后美国"枪炮俱乐部"的成员们利用大炮和炮弹精心设计的一场月球之旅。俱乐部主席巴比康提议向月球发射一颗炮弹,建立地球与月球之间的联系。巴比康的死对头尼克尔上校却极力反对这次实验,并投下巨额赌注,赌实验不会成功。法国冒险家米歇尔·阿当建议造一颗空心炮弹,以便乘坐这颗炮弹去月球探险。最后,在阿当的调解下,巴比康和尼科尔化干戈为玉帛,三人决定一起乘坐"炮弹车厢"飞往月球。小说的语言生动活泼,人物个性鲜明,所有数字及描述都是作者理性知识和丰富想象的结合,科学性、文学性、趣味性兼备,堪称十九世纪科幻小说的经典之作。
