Not sure if this thread is appropriate, but I just have to post what I feel is the greatest space exploration related speech ever.

"As I take man's last step from the surface, back home for some time to come - but we believe not too long into the future - I'd like to just [say] what I believe history will record. That America's challenge of today has forged man's destiny of tomorrow. And, as we leave the Moon at Taurus- Littrow, we leave as we came and, God willing, as we shall return, with peace and hope for all mankind. Godspeed the crew of Apollo 17."

— Eugene A. Cernan, Apollo 17 Commander.

You can't top that.

How about... (and this is coming from memory so correct me if its a little off)


"We choose to go to the moon, not because it is easy, but because it is hard..." and so on.

-John F. Kennedy


I think that was the greatest, and the most infamous, space speech. And it was that space speech and that initiative that launched the programs to put man on the moon. And because of that, all subsequent "moon speeches" could eventually be made.


And this is coming from someone who doesn't particularly care for Kennedy. I'm a huge Nixon fan!!!

I was watching a show on one of the Discovery Channels yesterday about some of the previously unknown things that happened during Apollo 11. Buzz Aldrin stated if the public had the same tolerence for risk then that there is today they would have never gone to the Moon.
