Truth is stranger than fiction,10 Sc-Fi Predictions That Came True only supports the notion. Moon Landing predicted by Jules Verne more than 100 years before the moonwalk in his novel, "From the Earth to the Moon." The InnovationsNewsDaily article observes, "according to Jules Verne’s story..., the first mission to the moon was launched in December from a base in Florida. The crew consisted of three men who were seated in a large capsule constructed almost entirely from aluminum.
