    Excerpt of President John Kennedy's Rice Stadium Moon Speach September 12, 1962: William Bradford, speaking in 1630 of the founding of the Plymouth Bay Colony, said that all great and honorable actions are accompanied with great difficulties, and both must be enterprised and overcome with answerable courage. If this capsule history of our progress teaches us anything, it is that man, in his quest for knowledge and progress, is determined and cannot be deterred. The exploration of space will go ahead, whether we join in it or not, and it is one of the great adventures of all time, and no nation which expects to be the leader of other nations can expect to stay behind in the race for space. Yet the vows of this Nation can only be fulfilled if we in this Nation are first, and, therefore, we intend to be first. In short, our leadership in science and in industry, our hopes for peace and security, our obligations to ourselves as well as others, all require us to make this effort, to solve these mysteries, to solve them for the good of all men, and to become the world's leading space-faring nation. We set sail on this new sea because there is new knowledge to be gained, and new rights to be won, and they must be won and used for the progress of all people. For space science, like nuclear science and all technology, has no conscience of its own. Whether it will become a force for good or ill depends on man, and only if the United States occupies a position of pre-eminence can we help decide whether this new ocean will be a sea of peace or a new terrifying theater of war. I do not say that we should or will go unprotected against the hostile misuse of space any more than we go unprotected against the hostile use of land or sea, but I do say that space can be explored and mastered without feeding the fires of war, without repeating the mistakes that man has made in extending his writ around this globe of ours. To be sure, all this costs us all a good deal of money. This year's space budget is three times what it was in January 1961, and it is greater than the space budget of the previous eight years combined. That budget now stands at $5.4 billion a year—a staggering sum, though somewhat less than we pay for cigarettes and cigars every year. Space expenditures will soon rise some more, from 40 cents per person per week to more than 50 cents a week for every man, woman and child in the United Stated, for we have given this program a high national priority—even though I realize that this is in some measure an act of faith and vision, for we do not now know what benefits await us. But if I were to say, my fellow citizens, that we shall send to the moon, 240,000 miles away from the control station in Houston, a giant rocket more than 300 feet tall, the length of this football field, made of new metal alloys, some of which have not yet been invented, capable of standing heat and stresses several times more than have ever been experienced, fitted together with a precision better than the finest watch, carrying all the equipment needed for propulsion, guidance, control, communications, food and survival, on an untried mission, to an unknown celestial body, and then return it safely to earth, re-entering the atmosphere at speeds of over 25,000 miles per hour, causing heat about half that of the temperature of the sun, then we must be bold. However, I think we're going to do it, and I think that we must pay what needs to be paid. I don't think we ought to waste any money, but I think we ought to do the job. And this will be done in the decade of the sixties. It may be done while some of you are still here at school at this college and university. It will be done during the term of office of some of the people who sit here on this platform. But it will be done. And it will be done before the end of this decade. Many years ago the great British explorer George Mallory, who was to die on Mount Everest, was asked why did he want to climb it. He said, "Because it is there." Well, space is there, and we're going to climb it, and the moon and the planets are there, and new hopes for knowledge and peace are there. And, therefore, as we set sail we ask God's blessing on the most hazardous and dangerous and greatest adventure on which man has ever embarked. Which answer best explains how the details related to William Bradford support the main idea of Kennedy's speech? Alluding to the first English settlers allows Kennedy to create an image of himself as a great explorer. Creating a link to the American colonies allows Kennedy to connect the audience to other pivotal moments in history. Including Bradford allows Kennedy to connect the courage of the European settlers to that needed by the country now. Mentioning the words of Bradford allows Kennedy to align himself with the greatest leaders of the New World.

    What is the main benefit of referencing William Bradford before summarizing the point of the condensed history? To convince listeners that Kennedy has thoroughly studied the history of the United States To provide an example of someone who successfully faced a challenge like that of going to space To suggest Kennedy is more like earlier great American pioneers than his opponents To take listeners back to another memorable moment in the timeline of technology

    Read this sentence from the text: "…despite that, the vast stretches of the unknown and the unanswered and the unfinished still far outstrip our collective comprehension." In this context, which word could be used to replace "outstrip" as it is used in this context? Inform Overwhelm Surpass Surprise

    Well, space is there, and we're going to climb it, and the moon and the planets are there, and new hopes for knowledge and peace are there. And, therefore, as we set sail we ask God's blessing on the most hazardous and dangerous and greatest adventure on which man has ever embarked. Which answer best restates the main idea of the above paragraph of Kennedy's speech? Peace and knowledge are inevitable results of the coming space exploration efforts. Space exploration holds much promise and so off we go to that great endeavor. Space is like a mountain; there to showcase the genius of man. We can only succeed if we try with all the courage we can muster.

    Consider the following claim and counterclaim. Claim: The school cafeteria should start a composting program. Counterclaim: Composting is too messy. Use the claim and counterclaim to create a thesis statement for a strong argument paper.

    Many people are debating weather or not to start a composting program, I think that there should be a composting program, because composting is a simple way to add nutrient-rich humus which fuels plant growth and restores vitality to depleted soil and It's free.
