How to Get There Featured

By Ted Craig July 22, 2019 1032

This past weekend, everybody except the New York Times celebrated the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. In 1961, Pres. Kennedy said we would put a man on the moon by the end of the decade. And we did. 

Around the same time, Henry Ford II pledged Ford would win LeMans by the end of the decade. And it did. In some ways, this was even more improbable than a man walking on the moon. There will even be a movie about is later this year (one that is not based on A.J. Baime's "Go Like Hell," the studio's lawyers say). 

Both these audacious goals were not only met, but met in what seemed like an extremely short amount of time. Today, could we do either? Can we take the risks that put a man on the moon and a Ford in the winner's circle? I don't know.
