In his famous 1961 “moon shot” speech, President John F. Kennedy told Congress, “Now it is time to take longer strides, time for a great new American enterprise, time for this nation to take a clearly leading role in space achievement, which in many ways may hold the key to our future on earth.”

Kennedy believed that landing a man on the moon was not a pipe dream; it was critical to humanity’s future. He believed that we as a nation were in the right time and place to achieve what many believed was impossible.
