Vision allows us to discover who we are. Vision allows me to see: to see the obstacles ahead, to see the Earth and all its beauty, to see the night sky and wonder what is out there. Vision allows me to plan: to plan how I will overcome obstacles, to plan how I will protect the Earth and all its beauty, to plan how I will journey further into the cosmos than ever before and see the unknown firsthand. Vision allows me to learn from my past successes and mistakes and prepare for the future triumphs of discovery and knowledge for all mankind. Vision allows me to reach for the stars. As visions of the red and barren landscape of Mars dance across my mind, humanity prepares its vision for future explorers of the Red Planet. With our vision, we will see the dawn of a new era of exploration.
