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.
