display_description When the members of the elite Baltimore Gun Club find themselves lacking any urgent assignments at the close of the Civil War, their president, Impey Barbicane, proposes that they build a gun big enough to launch a rocket to the moon. But when Barbicane?s adversary places a huge wager that the project will fail and a daring volunteer elevates the mission to a ?manned? flight, one man?s dream turns into an international space race.
