Nov. 22, 1963 is a day that Americans will never forget. For the baby boomer generation, the day of JFK’s assassination remains as vivid as the horrific scenes from September 11th, 2001.
In 1961, John F. Kennedy challenged the nation to send men to the moon and return them safely.
President John F. Kennedy wasn’t kidding when he said going to the Moon was hard. Much of the technology needed to get to the lunar surface and return didn’t exist at the time of Kennedy’s famous 1962 speech. And much was unknown.
