But why, some say, the moon? Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask why climb the highest mountain? Why, thirty-five years ago, fly the Atlantic?
…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…
— John F. Kennedy
Address at Rice University on the Nation’s Space Effort September 12, 1962
"There are only three sports: bullfighting, motor racing, and mountaineering; all the rest are merely games."
