Forecasting the consequences of the “Crash of 2008” on space activities
On 20 April 1961, 8 days after the mission of Yuri Gagarin, President J.F. Kennedy issued a memorandum to the Chairman of the Space Council (the U.S. Vice-president) asking him to come up as soon as possible with a spectacular proposal to “beat the Russians” in a space programme. 527Noteworthy in this memorandum is that the options given were:
— To build a laboratory in space;
— To land on the Moon;
— To make a trip around the Moon;
— To land a rocket with men onboard on the Moon and return them to Earth.
