JFK's 1962 Speech featured on "The Announcement"
- Its hazards are hostile to us all
- Its conquest deserves the best of all mankind
- And its opportunity for peaceful cooperation may never come again
- But why, some say, the moon? Why choose this as our goal?
- And they may well ask why climb the highest mountain?
- Why, 35 years ago, fly the Atlantic?
- Why does Rice play Texas? We choose to go to the moon!
- We choose to go to the moon
- 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
- Because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills
