Video: Video: JFK - We choose to go to the Moon, gives me chills every time

"We choose to go to the Moon" As we sit at the precipice of a new era of exploration, I thought it appropriate to revisit the original inspiration and rationale for the first lunar exploration program as so eloquently stated by John F. Kennedy. The original speech by JFK was held in Houston, TX at the Rice Stadium in the fall of 1962. "Many years ago the great British explorer George Mallory, who was to die on Mount Everest, was asked why did he want to climb it. He said, 'Because it is there.' Well, space is there, and we're going to climb it, and the moon and the planets are there, and new hopes for knowledge and peace are there. And, therefore, as we set sail we ask God's blessing on the most hazardous and dangerous and greatest adventure on which man has ever embarked." -John F. Kennedy, Rice University, Sept. 12, 1962 http://www.jfklibrary.org/Historical+Resources/Archives/Reference+Desk/Speeches/JFK/003POF03SpaceEffort09121962.htm http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/We_choose_to_go_to_the_moon http://www.nasa.gov/mission_pages/constellation/main/index.html www.rice.edu www.nasa.gov
