In July 1960 NASA prepared to implement "Project Apollo" which would introduce a manned circumlunar mission project to their planning. The project took on a new form, however, when President Kennedy in May 1961 proposed the goal of a manned lunar landing. It was a program of three-man flights, leading to the landing of men on the moon.
