Course Details
Kennedy, NASA and the Apollo Missions
Fifty years ago, in July 1969, Americans first landed on the moon. Whatever the debates about the costs and usefulness of NASA’s missions to the moon, they were in themselves an astonishing achievement. In September 1962, President Kennedy had provided the vision and the challenge to land a man on the moon – “We choose to go to the moon” - and to do this before the end of the decade. Following an illustrated summary of Kennedy’s presidency, the course will follow the development of the Apollo programme with particular reference to the moon landings. Against the turbulent backdrop of Kennedy’s assassination, the Cuba Crisis, the Cold War,Vietnam, and Civil Rights protests, a small group of astronauts defied
the odds to make their own history.
