NASA Endeavor Launch: Science Fact From Science Fiction

Once, people only fantasized about space flight through the eyes of the science fiction writers, H. G. Wells and Jules Verne. An earlier work by Greek writer, Lucian of Samosata, wrote a story named Vera Historia (True History), which is tell the tale of a sailing ship being propelled by a great wind for seven days and nights to land on the moon. I find Lucian amazing because he lived from 125 to 180 A.D. He must have had a forward looking and creative mind.
Here’s a video of today’s launch.

Thanks NASA!
