JFK - Full Length Moon Speech - Houston Texas, 1962

"We choose to go to the Moon"

The original speech by JFK was held in Houston, TX at the Rice Stadium September 12, 1962.

"Many years ago the great British explorer George Mallory, who was to die on Mount Everest, was asked why did he want to climb it. He said, 'Because it is there.' Well, space is there, and we're going to climb it, and the moon and the planets are there, and new hopes for knowledge and peace are there. And, therefore, as we set sail we ask God's blessing on the most hazardous and dangerous and greatest adventure on which man has ever embarked." - John F. Kennedy
