We’ve collected the best Rockets Quotes from the greatest minds of the world: Lou Williams, Dierks Bentley, Elon Musk, Steve Jurvetson, Henry Spencer. Use them as an inspiration.
By day, I’m a venture capitalist. On weekends, I love rockets.
I love photography. I love rockets.
Past experience, on the shuttle and the Titan rockets, suggests that large multi-segment solid rockets have a probability of failure of 0.5 to 1 per cent.
No one can deny that Russia fired some big rockets and placed satellites into orbit. But there’s been a deluge of poppycock about ‘miraculous‘ scientific advances that enabled them to do it. Much of this analysis reflects ignorance about rocketry.
The Rockets have a philosophy of what they think their coach should be.
Space travel is the only technology that is more dangerous and more expensive now than it was in its first year. Fifty years after Yuri Gagarin, the space shuttle ended up being more dangerous and more expensive to fly than those first throwaway rockets, even though large portions of it were reusable. It’s absurd.
I’d love to be with the Rockets for life.
The key virtue of orbital assembly is that it eliminates the tight connection between the size of the expedition and the size of the rockets used to launch it.
It is not a coincidence that we have managed to send rockets into space, but our literacy rate continues to be below the world average. It is because governments don’t want an educated electorate. Because if we get educated, we will start asking the right questions. And they don’t want the right questions being asked.
Whether solid rockets are more or less likely to fail than liquid-fuel rockets is debatable. More serious, though, is that when they do fail, it’s usually violent and spectacular.
Evolution is all about passing on the genome to the next generation, adapting and surviving through generation after generation. From an evolutionary point of view, you and I are like the booster rockets designed to send the genetic payload into the next level of orbit and then drop off into the sea.
Since SpaceX’s very beginnings, they have talked about recovering and reusing at least the first stages of their rockets.
Depressives have led countries, won wars, flown rockets to the moon, made great music. Don’t let depression stop you employing someone, and never let it cause you to judge them. Depression is not a person. Like any other illness, it is something that happens to a person. It shouldn’t define them.
IT is now reaching out to fuels and chemicals, energy and clean tech, rockets, all kinds of bizarre industries that formerly didn’t face much competition.
I just feel incredibly fortunate that I got the chance to be part of the Rockets organization all those years ago.
We see what Hamas, what kind of this organization, how radicals, their ideology, and we see the consequences every day. You know, the rockets on Israel – and I don’t know any other countries that they will accept reality with, every day, rockets on their towns, cities.
For a country constantly threatened by missiles, rockets and mortar shells from terrorist groups like Hezbollah and Hamas, security is not only a gravely important issue, but is the most critical issue. That’s why I introduced the Defend Israel Act as one of my first pieces of legislation.
Sometimes people wonder why aeroplanes are so cheap and rockets are so expensive. Even the most superficial comparison shows one obvious difference: aeroplane engines use outside air to burn their fuel, while rockets have to carry their own oxidisers along.
