Rice Stadium, 1962
President John F. Kennedy proposes the United States will land a man on the moon.
In a September speech in Houston, JFK promised we would land a man on the moon by the end of the decade. It was as audacious as saying that the Rice Owls would win the national college football championship, or the Houston Astros the World Series. But seven years later we were on the moon. Still waiting on the Owls and Astros.
