About the space mission
On May 25, 1961 John F. Kennedy made this quote. '' I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving this goal before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him back safely. This space program went full throttle in 1961 when John F. Kennedy challenged to claim the nations leadership role in space and land a man on the moon before the end of the decade. Eight years later on July, 20, 1969 two american astronauts walked on the moon.
