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]
For me, a rocket is only a means--only a method of reaching the depths of space--and not an end in itself... There's no doubt that it's very important to have rocket ships since they will help mankind to settle elsewhere in the universe. But what I'm working for is this resettling... The whole idea is to move away from the Earth to settlements in space.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]
Man must at all costs overcome the Earth's gravity and have, in reserve, the space at least of the Solar System. All kinds of danger wait for him on the Earth. . . . We have said a great deal about the advantages of migration into space, but not all can be said or even imagined.More Konstantin Tsiolkovsky quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
