President Kennedy arrives at Rice Stadium. Footage of US President John F. Kennedy arriving at Rice University's Rice Stadium during his visit to Houston, Texas, USA, on 12 September 1962. It was here that he made his famous speech ('We choose to go to the Moon'), delivered to a crowd of 40,000 people and widely reported worldwide. The speech followed on from a famous pledge he had made in 1961 that the USA would achieve a Moon landing before the end of the decade. Kennedy's tour of Houston was part of an inspection of the resulting massive expansion of NASA and the Apollo moon programme.
