How it works
But why, some say, the Moon?
John F. Kennedy served as president of the United States from 1961 until his death in 1963.
President Kennedy inspired a generation to accept responsibility for its future by taking political and social action. As president, he worked to ensure equal rights and opportunities for all Americans. He encouraged Americans to lift those less fortunate than themselves. He challenged the nation to reach for the impossible and land a man on the moon before the end of the decade. And he reduced the threat of nuclear war by finding a peaceful resolution to the Cuban Missile Crisis.
Throughout his term, President Kennedy pushed for progress in education, space exploration and innovation, the environment, and the pursuit of peace.
