Konstantin Tsiolkovsky

The scientist, the founder of modern astronautics
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]
First, inevitably, the idea, the fantasy, the fairy tale. Then, scientific calculation. Ultimately, fulfillment crowns the dream.More Konstantin Tsiolkovsky quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Men are weak now, and yet they transform the Earth's surface. In millions of years their might will increase to the extent that they will change the surface of the Earth, its oceans, the atmosphere, and themselves. They will control the climate and the Solar System just as they control the Earth. They will travel beyond the limits of our planetary system; they will reach other Suns, and use their fresh energy instead of the energy of their dying luminary.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]
A planet is the cradle of mind, but one cannot live in a cradle forever.More Konstantin Tsiolkovsky quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
