U.S. Space Exploration, Once Championed By JFK, Faces Diminished Priority In Washington

“We choose to go to the moon” President Kennedy said on September 12, 1962 at Rice University.  It was a simple, telegraphic phrase in one of the greatest speeches in Presidential history.  Those seven words encompassed not just an idea or a program but an underlying philosophy.  Those seven words are now locked into history for how they changed the world.

On the anniversary of Kennedy’s assassination, Marshall Institute Director Mark Mills considered the current state of U.S. space exploration efforts in Forbes.
