I just ran across the NASA document “A Vision for Space Exploration” that’s dated February 2004.
I think it came as part of the effort of the Bush Administration to focus our attention out into space. Which, though the motivations behind such a thing are suspect, is a really neat thing I think.
I saved this document locally because it would be nice to have in years to come, to look back on – to see what was being said, and what we were thinking.
It’s a neat little presentation – high on propaganda, but good at summarizing what we’re focusing on.
