Summary
During President John F. Kennedy's administration, at the height of the space race between the United States and Russia, a number of significant events occurred within the field of space exploration. Following Russia's parallel successes, Alan Shepard became the first American in space (1961), and John Glenn became the first American to orbit the Earth (1962). Soon after Glenn's trip, President Kennedy promised to get the first human on the Moon by the end of the decade. The Gemini and Apollo Projects worked towards these goals, and in 1963 Kennedy spoke of using space research for peaceful means
