    Space research sets the actual benchmark for the explorers in fields of science & tech.
    Thanks again.

    Instead of glorifying his primitive calculations, you could have pointed out how ridiculously unrealistic Vernes scenario actually is. The speed of the projectile is beyond escape velocity. Even with an explosive that would meet the necessary detonation velocity (Nitrocellulose doesn't), the acceleration in such a pathetically short barrel (270m) would turn everything into porridge.

    Does anyone know where the clip from 2:50 came from?

  • Chris Snyder on May 21, 2020

    This had Nothing to do with my love for Space and or Sci-Fi. Most fans alive today saw this after they found Sci-Fi and or Fell in love with Space.

  • bigfoot on May 22, 2020

    this video feels like early 2000s discovery channel

  • National Geographic on May 22, 2020

    Today, with private companies going to space almost regularly, it's easy to loose sight that this incredible human achievement was once just science fiction. What was the most fascinating thing you learned from this video?

  • Ionac John J. on May 22, 2020

    That’s why I love reading sci-fi books. ❤️

  • Recipesbysandhya on May 22, 2020

    Great Sharing dear👍

  • Taxi Rob on May 23, 2020

    Thinking about old science fiction written at a time when electricity was being experimented with and slowly implemented makes me wonder why rail guns didn't come about 100 years ago

  • Anonymous on May 29, 2020

    that's why I watch sci-fi movies

  • Prashanth Kumar on May 30, 2020

    Maybe science reality, inspired science fiction!!!

  • Era Tiwari on May 31, 2020

    I couldn't know how this mission is different from early missions. Space missions taking human to ISS is being already achieved. @Nationalgeography can you please explain. I feel a bit confused.

    I had learnt about this line maybe from Elon Musk for the first time that Humanity was born on Earth, but, it can't die here, or, remain here, forever.

    Konstantin Tsiolkovsky: "The earth is the cradle of humanity, but humankind can not stay in the cradle forever" 🇵🇭
