NASA spent the 1960s striving to fulfill the ultimatum set forth for the nation by President John F. Kennedy. Responding to early successes in the Space Race by the Soviet Union, President Kennedy set a bold goal for the nation to send a man to the moon and return him safely to the Earth’s surface before the decade was out. With months to spare, on July 20th, 1969, mankind reached the moon during the Apollo 11 space flight.
