About this Class

De la Terre à la Lune
The American Civil War ends in the United States. The former gunners of the army, gathered in the "Gun-Club", no longer have any projects in progress, they are bored. President Impey Barbicane then decided to give a new impetus to his club around a revolutionary projectile project that could go to the Moon. The idea takes shape little by little but external elements will disrupt everything. Between technical and financial problems and rivalries between scientists, will the projectile succeed in reaching the Moon?
