Fact of the Day: Old Astronaut

In the 17th century, a scientist named John Wilkins thought of about traveling to the Moon. Inspired by the Age of Discovery, Wilkins thought the Moon could also be reached. He thought of many ideas for the crew and ships on how to get to the Moon. However man never reached the moon until almost three hundred years after he passed away.

  6. They should teach about him in school. He was the first to imagine it, so he should be in history books for that!

  7. And I'm just sitting here, on most days unwilling to walk to the mailbox. Sad that history doesn't really mention his vision.
