    Apollo took us to the moon in 1969. Why haven't we gone back?

    It was a time when spaceflight wasn't really about space.
    "Kennedy's closest advisers, speech writers and confidants say that one-two punch of Gargarin's flight and then the Bay of Pigs really taught him that military intervention was not necessarily going to succeed within this Cold War context," she explains. "Instead they needed to pursue other approaches to political problems."


    Political problems. For such a monumental moment in humanity's history, it's easy to forget that the decision to take us to the moon was borne out of a specific time and circumstance. It was a politician's answer to a political problem.
    Kennedy never hid the fact that there was a space race, but he often sold NASA's space plans as the human need to explore for exploration's sake. "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," he said during an iconic speech at Houston's Rice University on April 25, 1962.

    Just watched the re-run of CBS's Moon Landing broadcast with Walter Cronkite. It was synched to the actual time of the landing. The 50 years slipped from my shoulders and I was back there.
