Clinton Adminstration Legacy Lingers

Editor's note: Go to this image gallery at JSC. Pick an image category - and an image at random. Attached to the image caption will be a caveat that has been in place since the Clinton Adminstration kept a lid on NASA's human exploration yearnings. Often times the caveat is longer than the image caption itself!

"Note: NASA currently has no formal plans for a human expedition to Mars or the Moon. This image and others displayed may not reflect the hardware and overall concept of possible visits to either of those celestial bodies. However, the art work represented here serves as a comprehensive study of various concepts and ideas developed as possibilities over a period of years."

Now that NASA has the VSE, indeed, as Mike Griffin seeks to accelerate it, why is this silly verbiage still on line? It would seem to be sending exactly the opposite message than NASA is implementing.
