Apollo/JFK connections are ironic in some ways, because JFK wasn't a Space enthusiast... LBJ proposed it to him to outdo the Soviets after Gagarin's flight.
That said, JFKs epic speeches May 25th 1961 to Joint Houses of Congress (b/w)... and Sept 12th, 1962 at Rice (colour) still gives me shivers. Great writer (Thanks Ted Sorensen), great message, great delivery.

All those who believe in telekinesis, raise my hand.
