JFK’s Rice Speech on NASA TV Sept. 12


50 years ago, President John F. Kennedy delivered his historic “Space Challenge” speech to students and faculty at Rice University in Houston that included this now-iconic statement, “We choose to go to the moon not because it is easy but because it is hard.” See and hear the speech in its entirety this Wednesday at 10:15 a.m. Central on NASA TV just as it was delivered that morning on September 12, 1962

  1. It amazes me and frustrates me that these days there is a larger number of people than ever before that don't believe we actually landed on the moon. They just can't fathom such an ambitious and daring project in modern times because we have all become a bunch of whiners and quitters rather than trying things that are hard. We need to stop dumbing down things and trying to make everything idiot proof, so that we can once again do great things like another moon landing.

  2. I hope that in my lifetime I will be able to see the colonization of the moon begin. Or at least see a man land on Mars. I will be one of the engineers to make that happen!

  3. There's already a huge plan in motion, that spans about 2 decades…All preparing us for an eventual manned expedition to mars in the 2030's. So don't get your hopes up for a Mars mission anytime soon sport.

  4. No. The Soviets had a backwards, stupid, unproductive economically unsound system. They would have had no way to bring someone back from the moon because they had no money.

    @v12tommy: Those people are morons. If it was so easy to fake, how come we never saw anything like it from any other countries.
