When America recalls the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission, which first puts man on the moon, Fox Nauon gives a special look at how history has changed forever in the American Moon. "Fifty years later, this is a great moment when we realize we have done it," said historian Douglas Brinkley, author of "American Moonshot: John F. Kennedy and the Great Space Race," about the important mission. In 1962, caused by the threat of the Soviet space program, President John Kennedy promised that the United States would land on the moon a US astronaut by the end of the decade. From that moment on, the world watched in awe of how NASA pushed its technology to the extreme in battle to claim the new frontier.
"We choose to go to the moon during this decade and do the other things not because they are easy but because they are difficult because this goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills," Kennedy said in Houston on September 1
Fifty years later, space moves back to the national focus, but this time the cosmic power of Mars and President Trump "Move to the beginning of titles when America reflects that moment."
"The Five Decades of Apollo are trying to inspire what this nation has done fifty years ago."
