Train wreck at Montparnasse (October 22, 1895) by Studio Lévy and Sons.

From the Earth to the Moon (French: De la Terre à la Lune) is a humorous science fantasy story about a trip to the moon written in 1865 by Jules Verne and is one of the earliest entries in that genre.

The story is also notable in that Verne attempted to do some rough calculations as to the requirements for the cannon and, considering the total lack of any data on the subject at the time, some of his figures are surprisingly close to reality.
