“We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard” – John F. Kennedy
More than 40 years ago, on September 12, 1962 John F. Kennedy announced to the nation from Rice Stadium, he would move Americans efforts in space to high gear as one of the most important decisions made during his time in office. To date, the United States, Russia and recently China have all accomplished soft landings on the moon. While we
anticipate the day when humanity returns, we should be proud of the Apollo missions and the 12 American astronauts who leave footprints for the future.
