The Birth of Both Sci Fi and SFX: A Trip to the Moon by Georges Méliès

How much do you know about this sci-fi epic and its creator?

It’s probably one of the most memorable scenes in movie history (right) from the 1902 sci-fi spectacle A Trip the the Moon (French: Le Voyage dans la Lune). But how much do you know about this historic film and its director Georges Méliès? If you’re like me, probably very little. Here are several factoids and some of the connections they triggered for me.
