NASA celebrates anniversary of JFK speech


NASA celebrated the 60th anniversary of John F. Kennedy's historic moonshot speech Kennedy spoke at rice university in Houston in 1962 about sending astronauts to the moon before the end of the decade and bringing them safely back to earth But why some say the moon He said why climb the highest mountain 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 60 years later at rice university administrator Bill Nelson talked about NASA's Artemis moon rocket Not going to be easy It's going to be hard Some things never change NASA is gearing up for a test flight of Artemis after two scrubbed launches But this is more than just a moonshot To take us further than ever before to Mars NASA hopes to launch Artemis at the end of the month I'm Ed Donahue
