JFK’s eternal speech at Rice University on September 12th, 1962 setting the goal of the space race during the 1960’s.
President John F. Kennedy gave this speech almost 55 years ago. It was a stirring example of American resolve, and of the American exploratory spirit. Now, more than a half-century later, we are dependent upon the Russians to get an American astronaut to the International Space Station.
Somehow, I think President Kennedy would be appalled.
