Space exploration was the newest part of the frontier Kennedy was referring to,

but he also saw the US on the verge of solving some of the old problems of war, social injustice and poverty.

==========

The Kennedy quote is :

"[W]e stand today on the edge of a New Frontier -- the frontier of 1960s, the frontier of unknown opportunities and perils, the frontier of unfilled hopes and unfilled dreams. ... Beyond that frontier are uncharted areas of science and space, unsolved problems of peace and war, unconquered problems of ignorance and prejudice, unanswered questions of poverty and surplus.
