Konstantin Tsiolkovsky

The scientist, the founder of modern astronautics
Man must at all costs overcome the Earth's gravity and have, in reserve, the space at least of the Solar System.More Konstantin Tsiolkovsky quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
From the rocket we can see the huge sphere of the planet in one or another phase of the Moon. We can see how the sphere rotates, and how within a few hours it shows all its sides successively ... and we shall observe various points on the surface of the Earth for several minutes and from different sides very closely. This picture is so majestic, attractive and infinitely varied that I wish with all my soul that you and I could see it.More Konstantin Tsiolkovsky quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To set foot on the soil of the asteroids, to lift by hand a rock from the Moon, to observe Mars from a distance of several tens of kilometers, to land on its satellite or even on its surface, what can be more fantastic? From the moment of using rocket devices a new great era will begin in astronomy: the epoch of the more intensive study of the firmament.More Konstantin Tsiolkovsky quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Consider a cask filled with a highly compressed gas. If we open one of its taps the gas will escape through it in a continuous flow, the elasticity of the gas pushing its particles into space will continuously push the cask itself. The result will a continuous change in the motion of the cask. Given a sufficient number of taps (say, six), we would be able to regulate the outflow of the gas as we liked and the cask (or sphere) would describe any curved line in accordance with any law of velocities.More Konstantin Tsiolkovsky quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The Earth is the cradle of Humanity. But one doesn't always live in the cradle.More Konstantin Tsiolkovsky quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
