|President Clinton Forsees Humans on Mars|
President Clinton (yes, we still have a president) announced in an exclusive Discovery Channel interview that sending humans to Mars will be "a question of when, not if." Friday's recent discovery of once-present pools of water on the surface of Mars was the topic of debate including questions on International Space Station expenses. In 1961, President John F. Kennedy vowed to put a man on the moon by the end of the decade. Many groups, including RC, have pressed for a similar goal to be set to put humans on Mars sometime in the near future. NASA's current plans call for several landers and orbiters to be sent to the Red Planet in the next 15 years.
