jul 16, 1969 - Apollo 11 launched

Description:

NASA schedules Apollo 11 as the first manned mission to the moon. Kennedy wants to show that America can defeat the Soviet Union in the space race. Both countries are sworn enemies fighting the Cold War, which will last for decades. Between 1963 and 1965, the Soviets launch the first woman and the first three-man crew, and do the first space walk. But the U.S. remains confident it can meet Kennedy's challenge.
