United States President John F. Kennedy outlined his vision for manned exploration of space to a Joint Session of the United States Congress, in Washington, DC on May 25, 1961 when he declared, "...I believe this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth." This goal was achieved when astronaut Neil A. Armstrong became the first human to set foot upon the Moon at 10:56 p.m. EDT, July 20, 1969. Shown in the background ar US Vice President Lyndon B.
