We choose to go to the moon. 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, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.
Wow, people (especially politicians) don't talk like that anymore. Or at least talk like that and DO IT like we did when we went to the moon against some serious odds. Yes it was expensive (like war) and cost lives (like war) and in fact, the moon race was a chapter of the "cold war". Well at least we won that one. See what can happen with the right leaders and resolve on the part of the public? We can make miracles happen when few other nations can. I hope we don't throw it all away for some temporary comfort.
