On September 12, 1962 President John F. Kennedy delivered one of the most inspirational and prescient policy speeches in world history. President Kennedy proclaimed at Rice University in Houston, Texas that the United States effort to land a man on the Moon would be extremely risky and full of unknowns. JFK also said that the exploration of space would prove to be one of the great adventures of human history and provide huge benefits to the United States and the world.
