President John Kennedy

Address to the United Nations General Assembly
September 20th 1963

excerpt: full speech at jfkmoon.org/un.html

''Finally, in a field where the United States and the Soviet Union have a special capacity--in the field of space--there is room for new cooperation, for further joint efforts in the regulation and exploration of space. I include among these possibilities a joint expedition to the moon. Space offers no problems of sovereignty; by resolution of this Assembly, the members of the United Nations have foresworn any claim to territorial rights in outer space or on celestial bodies, and declared that international law and the United Nations Charter will apply. Why, therefore, should man's first flight to the moon be a matter of national competition? Why should the United States and the Soviet Union, in preparing for such expeditions, become involved in immense duplications of research, construction, and expenditure? Surely we should explore whether the scientists and astronauts of our two countries--indeed of all the world--cannot work together in the conquest of space, sending someday in this decade to the moon not the representatives of a single nation, but the representatives of all of our countries. ....''

"Never before has man had such capacity to control his own environment, to end thirst and hunger, to conquer poverty and disease, to banish illiteracy and massive human misery. We have the power to make this the best generation of mankind in the history of the world--or to make it the last."

-- President John F. Kennedy, September 20, 1963 speech to the UN calling for an end to the Cold War and converting the Moon Race into an international cooperative effort, two months and two days before he was removed from office.

"It is not easy to see how the more extreme forms of nationalism can long survive when men have seen the Earth in its true perspective as a single small globe against the stars."
-- Arthur C. Clarke

"For the first time, we saw our world, not as a solid, immovable, kind of indestructible place, but as a very small, fragile-looking world just hanging against the blackness of space."
-- Brian Cox on the Apollo 8 photo of Earthrise
TED talk, Why We Need the Explorers, 19 April 2010

"Take all that money we spend on weapons and defenses each year and instead spend it feeding and clothing and educating the poor of the world, which it would pay for many times over, not one human being excluded, and we could explore space, together, both inner and outer, forever, in peace."
-- Bill Hicks

COPA director John Judge suffered stroke. Appeal for support.
March 6, 2014
by admin

John Judge and COPA founder and director, John Judge, suffered a stroke several days ago and he needs your support.

John suffered a stroke several days ago and is currently recovering well. His partner, Marilyn Tenenoff, is with him and giving us reports on his condition. He is currently undergoing rehabilitation but currently is numb in the right hand side of his body. Marilyn says that he’s doing well and is responding well. He’s having trouble speaking, but understands everything and is seemingly in good spirits.

I have set up a GoFundMe appeal to help John out with paying for his recovery and rent while he is unable to cover things himself.


If you can afford to donate something to help John out at the moment, please do. Marilyn will have access to this and can withdraw funds to pay John’s bills.

We have set the target at $2,000 (because I didn’t know what to set it at), but we can go over that. We hope to raise as much as possible to make John’s recovery as easy as possible.

Alternatively donations can be sent to COPA, PO Box 772, Washington DC 20044. However, please make checks out to his partner Marilyn Tenenoff.
