U toku godine [186*], celi svet je bio vanredno zainteresovan [jednim] naucynim eksperimentom, kome nije bilo primera u analima nauke. Cylanovi {Gan-kluba}, udruzxenxa artilxeraca, osnovanog u {Baltimoru} posle secesionisticykog rata, dosxli su na ideju da stupe u vezu sa {Mesecom}, - da, sa {Mesecom}, - na taj nacyin sxto bi na nx izbacili topovsko dxule. Nxihov predsednik {Barbiken}, inicijator toga pothvata, posxto je zatrazxio misxlxenxe astronoma iz opservatorije u {Kembridyu}, preduzeo je sve potrebne mere za taj neobicyni eksperiment, za koji je vecxina strucynxaka izjavila da je potpuno ostvarlxiv. Posxto je za taj pothvat organizovao javno upisivanxe dobrovolxnih priloga, koje je donelo blizu [trideset miliona] franaka, pristupio je svojim dyinovskim radovima.





Posxto su ta pitanxa bila resxena, predsednik {Barbiken} je uz pomocx inzxenxera Marcyisona, izabrao mesto u {Floridi} na [27] stepeni [7] minuta severne geografske sxirine i [5] stepeni i [7] minuta zapadne geografske duzxine. Na tome je mestu, posle ogromnih radova, {Kolumbijada} bila izlivena sa potpunim uspehom.


Uvazxeni {Dy. T. Maston}, najbolxi prijatelx [trojice] putnika, otputovao je na {Stenovite Planine}, u drusxtvu posxtovanog {Dy. Belfasta}, direktora Opservatorije u {Kembridyu}, i stigao je na {Longs-Pik}, gde se nalazio teleskop ogromne jacyine koji je priblizxavao {Mesec} na svega [dve] lije od posmatracya. Uvazxeni sekretar {Gan kluba} je zxeleo da licyno posmatra projektil u kome su bili nxegovi hrabri prijatelxi.

DURING the year 186-, the whole world was greatly excited by a scientific experiment unprecedented in the annals of science. The members of the Gun Club, a circle of artillerymen formed at Baltimore after the American war, conceived the idea of putting themselves in communication with the moon!—yes, with the moon—by sending to her a projectile. Their president, Barbicane, the promoter of the enterprise, having consulted the astronomers of the Cambridge Observatory upon the subject, took all necessary means to ensure the success of this extraordinary enterprise, which had been declared practicable by the majority of competent judges. After setting on foot a public subscription, which realized nearly L1,200,000, they began the gigantic work.



These questions determined President Barbicane, assisted by Murchison the engineer, to choose a spot situated in Florida, in 27° 7′ North latitude, and 77° 3′ West (Greenwich) longitude. It was on this spot, after stupendous labor, that the Columbiad was cast with full success. Things stood thus, when an incident took place which increased the interest attached to this great enterprise a hundredfold.



The worthy Joseph T. Maston, the staunchest friend of the three travelers, started for the Rocky Mountains, accompanied by the Hon. J. Belfast, director of the Cambridge Observatory, and reached the station of Long’s Peak, where the telescope was erected which brought the moon within an apparent distance of two leagues. The honorable secretary of the Gun Club wished himself to observe the vehicle of his daring friends.
