2020 Deadline

It looks like the 2010s are going to be an interesting decade. NASA chief Daniel Goldin is hot on the Russians' tail. "Letís burn into our brains that this civilization is not condemned to live on only one planet. Letís burn it into our brains that in our lifetimes, we will extend the reach of this human species onto other planets and to other bodies in our solar system and build the robots that will leave our solar system to go to other stars, then ultimately to be followed by people." He claims we can send humans to Mars within 20 years, something in which only the Russians have shown interest.
