John F. Kennedy’s charge to America was to go to the moon. It gave this nation something to strive for and to work towards. He made the resources available for hundreds of highly skilled engineers, designers, technicians, doctors and so many more to reach the moon in July of 1969. It’s amazing what they accomplished back then with the technology of the era. Unfortunately Kennedy would not live to see it come to reality but his dream opened a whole new universe.
It’s awe inspiring to see the rocket engineering that has happened in this city. It took lots of brain power and luck to make space flight happen. This is humanity and America at it’s greatest when people come together to solve problems and come up with solutions to get us from planet Earth to space and beyond. The Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama was on the forefront of taking us to the stars.
