We Choose the Moon - 50 Years Later

Fifty years ago today President Kennedy announced to Congress that the United States would put a man on the moon before the end of the 1960's. Today, NASA featured a short video that included the audio from that speech to Congress. The video explains the significance of Kennedy's proclamation in 1961 and today. Watch the video below.



On a related note, here is a video I found on YouTube that features President Kennedy's speech to Congress and the moon landing itself.
