Kennedy's 1961 address to Congress declaring a national goal of "landing a man on the Moon" by the end of the decade in a competition with the Soviet Union for supremacy in space. This goal was first accomplished during the Apollo 11 mission on July 20, 1969 when astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the Moon.
