- {Barbiken} i nxegovi drugovi gledali su prilicyno dugo, nemi i zamisxlxeni, taj svet koji su gledali samo izdaleka kao {Mojsije} {Zemlxu} {Hanansku} i od koga su se udalxavali nepovratno. Polozxaj projektila se u odnosu na {Mesec} izmenio i nxegovo dno je ponovo bilo okrenuto prema {Zemlxi}.




-To nije basx utesxan razvoj stvari, -recye {Misxel}. -Precxi u stanxe skromnih sluga [jednoga] {Meseca}, za koji smo navikli da ga smatramo nasxim slugom! I to je buducxnost koja nas ocyekuje?




-I stvarno, ako se pretpostavi da je dxule opisivalo putanxu oko {Meseca}, ta je putanxa morala biti elipticyna. Nauka dokazuje da tako mora biti. Nijedno telo, koje kruzxi oko [drugoga] tela na osnovu nxegove privlacyne sile, ne pretstavlxa izuzetak od toga pravila. Sve putanxe u svemiru su elipse, putanxe satelita oko planeta, putanxe planeta oko {Sunca} , putanxa {Sunca} oko nepoznate zvezde oko koje se i ono okrecxe. Zasxto bi projektil {Gan-kluba} bio izuzetak od toga opsxteg zakona?

For a long time Barbicane and his companions looked silently and sadly upon that world which they had only seen from a distance, as Moses saw the land of Canaan, and which they were leaving without a possibility of ever returning to it. The projectile's position with regard to the moon had altered, and the base was now turned to the earth.






"A revolution not at all consoling," said Michel, "to pass to the state of humble servants to a moon whom we are accustomed to look upon as our own handmaid. So that is the fate in store for us?"




Having admitted that the projectile was describing an orbit around the moon, this orbit must necessarily be elliptical; science proves that it must be so. No motive body circulating round an attracting body fails in this law. Every orbit described in space is elliptical. And why should the projectile of the Gun Club escape this natural arrangement
