Throughout the mid 1900s, the U.S. was involved in the Cold War. The U.S. fought against the Soviet Union to ultimately contain the spread of communism across the globe. When it was discovered that nuclear weaponry could be launched from space, countries competed to develop ways to do so. The accessibility of each country from space was a new concept that was exciting for aeronautic scientists to learn more about. And thus, the birth of the National Aeronautic Space Association (NASA).

Another great factor about the speech is the location where the speech was delivered, in Rice University, Houston. The university itself is a place where many science discoveries have taken place and thus adds onto the mood of the speech. Overall I would like to say that ‘We Choose to go to the Moon’ by President John F. Kennedy is a speech of great depth. The vast audience size of the speech itself speaks all about the strength and the importance of the speech in history.

Creating NASA that lead to build new technologies during the Space Race, was proved because it helped U.S protect itself and today it still affect us in being able to accomplish our dreams. From President Kennedy’s contribution to the program to building Ranger Missions and Rockets Programs made America one of the most powerful and advanced country in the world. The Space Race not just only created shuttles, it created things we used now on daily basis like water purification, chemical detection, solar cells, and many more.
Throughout the usage of the English language, individuals use powerful metaphors and figurative devices to get their messages across to empower people logically. In 1957, The Soviets become the first nation to deliver a satellite into earth’s orbit. In 1961, the Soviets send a wake up call to the world by sending the first human, Yuri Gargarin, into space. As Gargarin, the first man in space, Soviet accomplishments receive a large amount of recognition; receiving the title of the as a superior nation during the Cold War era. Upon the Soviet Union’s success, as the president, Kennedy was required to re-establish public hope to the citizens.
When John F. Kennedy won the 1961 election by just eighty six electoral votes, the world was fascinated. As he stood on the podium in Washington D.C., preparing to give his inauguration speech, everyone tuned in to what he had to say. As he began speaking, everyone was hearing his words and soon, people were calling it one of the best written inaugural speeches ever written. Kennedy was able to connect to our country by using an emotional appeal to pull his message, successfully, off. Whether you were a hawk, a dove, or somewhere in between, John F. Kennedy saw you and seemed to speak directly to you during his inaugural address.
Kennedy urges James Webb, NASA Administrator, to adjust his priorities because, “This is important for political reasons, international political reasons. This is, whether we like it or not, an intensive race" (Supplemental appropriations for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration). The launching of Sputnik 1 on October 4, 1957, showed the United States that the competition between them and the Soviets would affect the political views between the two countries and the world. After the first launch of the Sputnik 1, the Space Race had begun, this caused the United States politicians to act fast to catch up with the Russians. In the end the United... ... middle of paper ... ... elected president of the Communist party.
Therefore, I submit, that the space race was the most meaningful scientific and prestigious endeavor humankind had undertook culminating into one of the most impressive and striking moments of history, not just for the United States but the world, on April 11, 1961. As history has proved time and time again, war provides the world with endless amounts of new inventions and technology. During World War II, such inventions as radar and rocketry came into existence. At the forefront of the emerging field of rocketry was a young and jovial German of aristocratic background by the name of Wernher von Braun. During the war, he and other prominent German rocket scientists were... ... middle of paper ... ...lized within the hearts of the people and in their colleagues who bravely took up their cause.
As was previously stated, Kennedy was a popular president and by him alluding to how hardworking Americans were, he solidified his credibility by relating and understanding his audience. If Kennedy was a scientist and not the popular president, the space exploration would not have received the necessary motivation that was needed for the moon landing of 1969. Subsequently, the use of the Space Race as a distraction also served as a boost to morale. Tension was high during this time, and by the promise of beating the Soviets, which were becoming increasingly detrimental to the country, to space, Kennedy ignited the competitive and hardworking nature of American Citizens and allowed them to have an increase in their national pride. As seen in World War I, nationalism is an important factor in important events, and can cause for wars to start, or can cause for the discovery of an important factor that could change the world.
The United States and the United Soviet States of Russia both set out as arch rivals in the “Space Race,” a quest for dominance beyond the known Planet Earth. Ironically enough, just as communism was spreading to all parts of the world, the United States always sought to squash this form of government, despite somewhat dire consequences. Now, with
When he spoke he would often have to take large pauses to wait for the large amount of applause to cease before starting again. He spoke in a way that made him seem relatable to the people thus enhancing their belief in him even more. His speaking ability combined with his charisma were perfect for getting people to love him and follow him. When historians examine Hitler’s rise to power there are thousands of different factors that go into how it happened and there are a endless amount of theories to how it happened. With the research that I have conducted I believe that answer for how Hitler rose to power can be summed up in a single phrase.
