John F. Kennedy delivers his "Landing a Man on the Moon" speech 1961

President John F. Kennedy delivered his speech to Congress urging their support in sending a man to the moon and returning him safely to Earth May 25, 1961.  Unfortunately, JFK would not live to see the fulfillment of his dream, since he was assassinated 6 years before Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon in 1969.

Alan Parsons recorded an instrumental "Apollo" on his "On Air" album, which features the famous quote from Kennedy's speech.
