At the Kennedy Space Centre in Orlando, “America’s gateway to space exploration.”
It is named after a charismatic President under whose tenure the bold and groundbreaking Moon Mission was conceptualised and executed.
Refreshingly, Republican Presidents (not even Donald Trump) have not tampered with the contributions of their Democratic predecessors.
John F Kennedy’s role in moon-landing found profusive mention in the multimedia presentations at the centre! No one is breaking his head on how to remove the name of Kennedy from the nomenclature.
In India, though, the ruling dispensation has no qualms undermining the role of past Prime Ministers in nation-building!
