Today in 1962, JFK rallied the nation with his iconic "We Choose to Go to the Moon" speech. As we look back at our past, and ahead to our next giant leap, we gathered aerospace ground breakers from the Apollo-era to today to celebrate that historic moment.

NASA's second class of astronauts, introduced in 1962, was a pretty impressive group. The nine, including Neil Armstrong (first row, second from right), would soon become household names as heroes of the Moon race.
