We choose to go to the Moon
Interesting things happened today in the tech world, but more worthy to remember in the long run is a historic speech by President Kennedy that justified the Apollo Program, held 50 years ago to the day. Its a Cold War era speech, but still powerful. The relevant sentences ("We choose to go to the moon...") are starting at minute 9:00. The Apollo Program itself was kicked-off in front of the US congress some 16 month earlier.
