Plenty of video and audio clips along with the text of the speech. After 4 years under W’s shadow it is always fascinating to watch a President give a speech without stumbling around for words like a drunken best man giving the wedding speech.

We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.
