Tendemos a pensar en la carrera espacial como en un argumento clásico de la guerra fría, su origen, no obstante, se remonta al siglo XIX, el siglo, no lo olvidemos, de las grandes patillas, del rapé y el laúdano.

Fue entonces cuando el espacio se convirtió en un fenómeno popular, en un elemento de debate público, cuando la ciencia dio paso a la divulgación y esta a la especulación.
El primer hito sobreviene de la creación del primer gran telescopio de nuestra época, el gigantesco observatorio creado en 1789 por Herschel con un espejo de 120 centímetros.
Repentinamente, la Luna y las estrellas pasaron de ser objetos visibles a objetos observables, el ojo humano pudo acercarse a ellas, ver con detalle y sorprenderse de una extraña geografía absolutamente nueva para el ser humano. Comenzó así un proceso análogo al que se desarrollaba a ras de Tierra, la cartografía precisa de un territorio inexplorado, en este caso el cielo.
Como no podía ser de otra manera el siglo XIX y sus habitantes enfocaron con entusiasmo sus nuevos ojos telescópicos sobre nuestro satélite: la Luna. Ésta, sinónimo de misterio y magia, pasó a ser un territorio más de la confusa geografía del siglo. Sus accidentes topográficos obtuvieron nombres, sus detalles fueron expuestos a la luz de la narrativa periodística. Y, puesto que el siglo XIX fue el siglo de la imaginación, no tardaron en aparecer en escena los habitantes de la Luna: los selenitas.
El primer responsable fue nuestro admirado Poe. Si bien la literatura científico-selenita se remonta a Kepler es Edgar Allan Poe el primero en ajustar su relato a datos científicos veraces. Su narración por fascículos “La incomparable aventura de un tal Hans Pfaall” bebe de las descripciones y dibujos cartográficos de la época, imaginando a los pobladores de esos cráteres, de ese nuevo mundo.

We tend to think of the space race as a classic argument of the cold war. Its origin, however, dates back to the nineteenth century, the century, let's not forget, of big sideburns, snuff and laudanum.

It this century, space became a popular phenomenon, an element of public debate, when science became object of dissemination and speculation.
The first milestone was the creation of the first great telescope of our time, the huge observatory created in 1789 by Herschel with a 120 cm mirror.
Suddenly, the Moon and the Stars turn from being visible objects into observable objects, the human eye was able to approach them, see them in detail and be surprised by a strange geography absolutely new to the human being.
The same process that had been developed with the earth, consisting in the precise mapping of an unexplored territory, was applied to the sky.
The inhabitants of the nineteenth century enthusiastically focused their new telescopic eyes on our satellite: the Moon. This, synonymous with mystery and magic, became another territory of the confusing geography of the century. Its topographical accidents were given names, its details were exposed in the light of journalistic narrative. And, since the nineteenth century was the century of imagination, the inhabitants of the Moon soon appeared on the scene: the selenites.

The first responsible was our admired Poe. Although the scientific-selenite literature goes back to Kepler, Edgar Allan Poe is the first to adjust his story to truthful scientific data. His narration, published in the booklets titled "The unparalleled adventure of one Hans Pfaall" is based on the cartographic descriptions and drawings of the time, imagining the inhabitants of those craters, of that new world.
