A Trip to the Moon (French: Voyage dans la Lune) is a 1902 French silent film directed by Georges Méliès.

A still from the short film was seen hanging on the wall of the International Space Station in Gravity.

DescriptionEdit

Inspired by a wide variety of sources, it follows a group of astronomers who travel to the Moon in a cannon-propelled capsule, explore the Moon's surface, escape from an underground group of Selenites (lunar inhabitants), and return in a splashdown to Earth with a captive Selenite in tow.

An internationally popular success at the time of its release, it is the best-known of the hundreds of films made by Méliès, and the moment in which the capsule lands in the Moon's eye remains one of the most iconic images in the history of cinema. It was named one of the 100 greatest films of the 20th century by The Village Voice, ranking at #84, and in 2002 it became the first work designated as a UNESCO World Heritage film.
