It's interesting to read these lesser known Verne works and see what was known and unknown. For example, Verne did not know that the voyagers would be weightless almost the entire trip. Neither did he know that the acceleration he would put Hus characters through would leave them as puddles of cellular goo on the floor of the capsule.

But the speculation as to what might be found on the trip gives some insight to what popular ideas about the moon were at the time. Verne clearly knew what was to be found there -- an airless, waterless world with extremes of heat and cold.
