No, but he gave it a major boost. President Dwight Eisenhower established the National Aeronautics and Space Administration in 1958. In May of 1961, President Kennedy sent things off in a big way when he announced that Americans would send a man to the moon and back within a decade. NASA's launch facility in Florida was renamed the John F. Kennedy Space Center in December of 1963 to honor the visionary president.
