Sure, Apple is holding an event this morning and the geek world is all up in a tizzy, but how about focusing on something a bit different — a bit more historical. Well, speaking honestly, something quite a bit more historical. NASA will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of President Kennedy’s moon speech this morning. NASA has a few goodies lined up for today, beginning first with a rebroadcast of that now famous speech that was originally delivered at Rice University in Houston on Sept. 12, 1962. The speech will be broadcast on NASA Television and it will be shown in its entirety and as a high-quality version. It will kick off at 11:15 AM EDT, which just so happens to be the same time that President Kennedy began speaking 50 years ago. Additionally, NASA will also be holding a Google+ Hangout at 3PM today.
With that, here is the the link for NASA Television.
Finally, the Google+ Hangout will be hosted by astronauts, scientists and engineers and “talk about NASA’s rich history of innovation and ingenuity, and discuss NASA’s future goals for scientific discovery and human spaceflight.” Here is the link for the Google+ Hangout.
