|The US space program of the 60s and early 70s can be summed up in the words of Captain James T. Kirk of the USS Enterprise, |
'To boldly go where no man has gone before.'
In a speech given to congress on May 25th, 1961, President John F. Kennedy, set our country on a course for the moon.
The 1960s was a time of turmoil both in the US and around the world. The US was in the midst of the 'Cold War' with the Soviet Union and soon the Cuban Missile Crisis would be on the front page of every newspaper. Next, President Kennedy would be assassinated; Vietnam would erupt into an unpopular war, the assassination of Robert Kennedy, the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., Race riots. It was a terrible time; but in the midst of it all the American Spirit rose up and put the first man on the moon.
