Chapman’s lecture will provide a glimpse at a whole range of people who thought seriously, humorously and sometimes crazily about space travel in the 350 years preceeding the Apollo mission. His subjects will include Edgar Allen Poe, who wrote a scientifically-based space travel tale in the mid-1800s, Jules Verne, who penned an 1869 novel describing a space ship fired from a giant cannon in Florida, and Robert Goddard, whose successful launch of the first liquid fuel rocket from his aunt’s farm in Massachusetts officially kicked off man’s race to the moon.
