In the midst of the Cold War, President John F. Kennedy delivered a speech stating his intent to place a man on the moon: "I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the Earth. No single space project in this period will be more impressive to mankind, or more important for the long-range exploration of space; and none will be so difficult or expensive to accomplish."
The effort to place a man on the Moon was named Project Apollo. Through multiple attempts, the United States NASA program was prepared to complete their voyage with Apollo 11. Apollo 11 successfully landed the first two people on the Moon on July 20, 1969. A total of twelve individuals have walked on the Moon in the nine Apollo missions that occurred between December 1968 and December 1972. This collage commemorates these moonwalkers with signature, original photographs, and even mission patches.
Overall very good condition for all elements. Elements have been archivally framed in a custom black frame.
