MCU U.S. President JOHN F. KENNEDY (JFK, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, John Kennedy) continues, "We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too." TLS crowd applauding. MCU Kennedy speaking, "It is for these reasons that I regard the decision last year to shift our efforts in space from low to high gear as among the most important decisions that will be made during my incumbency in the Office of the Presidency. In the last 24 hours we have seen facilities now being created for the greatest and most complex exploration in man's history. We have felt the ground shake and the air shattered by the testing of a Saturn C-1 booster rocket, many times as powerful as the Atlas which launched John Glenn, generating power equivalent to 10,000 automobiles with their accelerators on the floor. We have seen the site where five F-1 rocket engines, each one as powerful as all eight engines of the Saturn combined, will be clustered together to make the advanced Saturn missile, assembled in a new building to be built at Cape Canaveral as tall as a 48-story structure, as wide as a city block, and as long as two lengths of this field."

MCU U.S. President JOHN F. KENNEDY (JFK, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, John Kennedy) continues, "In short, our leadership in science and in industry, our hopes for peace and security, our obligations to ourselves as well as others, all require us to make this effort, to solve these mysteries, to solve them for the good of all men, and to become the world's leading space-faring nation. We set sail on this new sea because there is new knowledge to be gained, and new rights to be won, and they must be won and used for the progress of all people. For space science, like nuclear science and all technology, has no conscience of its own. Whether it will become a force for good or ill depends on man, and only if the United States occupies a position of pre-eminence can we help decide whether this new ocean will be a sea of peace or a new terrifying theater of war. I do not say that we should or will go unprotected against the hostile misuse of space any more than we go unprotected against the hostile use of land or sea, but I do say that space can be explored and mastered without feeding the fires of war, without repeating the mistakes that man has made in extending his writ around this globe of ours. There is no strife, no prejudice, no national conflict in outer space as yet. Its hazards are hostile to us all. Its conquest deserves the best of all mankind, and its opportunity for peaceful cooperation may never come again. But why, some say, the moon? Why choose this as our goal? And they may well ask why climb the highest mountain. Why, 35 years ago, fly the Atlantic? Why does Rice play Texas?"

And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness."

William Anders says, "The color of the moon is a whitish gray, like dirty beach sand w/ lots of footprints in it." "There's some craters & buildup that definitely suggests volcanic activity." Master 1808 - Tape 2 Excerpt of Christmas Eve Broadcast: audio of broadcast from Apollo VIII to mission control over aerial of moon horizon; "Welcome from the moon, Houston. The moon is a different thing to each one of us. I know my own impression is that it is a vast, lonely, forbidding type of existence. An expanse of nothing. It looks rather like clouds & clouds of pumice stone." "And from the crew of Apollo VIII, we close w/ good night, good luck, Merry Christmas, and God bless all of you, all of you on the good earth."
