Space Quote of the Month - December 2003 - January 2004:
"[Mars would] be a great place to go. It must be a lot like Kitty Hawk was in 1903. Desert and sandy, from the pictures that I've seen. It would be a bridge from the past to the future. It would almost be a modern re-enactment of what they did."
Space Quote of the Month - November - December 2003:
"...we have regained the initiative in the exploration of outer space, making an annual effort greater than the combined total of all space activities undertaken during the fifties, launching more than 130 vehicles into earth orbit, putting into actual operation valuable weather and communications satellites, and making it clear to all that the United States of America has no intention of finishing second in space.
This effort is expensive -- but it pays its own way, for freedom and for America. For there is no longer any fear in the free world that a Communist lead in space will become a permanent assertion of supremacy and the basis of military superiority. There is no longer any doubt about the strength and skill of American science, American industry, American education, and the American free enterprise system. In short, our national space effort represents a great gain in, and a great resource of, our national strength..."
Space Quote of the Month - October - November 2003:
"We should seek to extend man's capability to live and work in space. The experimental space station - a large orbiting workshop - will be an important part of this effort. We are now building such a station - using systems originally developed for the Apollo program - and plan to begin using it for operational missions in the next few years. We expect that men will be working in space for months at a time during the coming decade."
Space Quote of the Month - September - October 2003:
Everyone has the instinct to explore; humanity always has tended to expand so that it is easier for us to survive. Nevertheless, I am often asked where we go when we are launched into space. It's a logical question, because the objective has been lost somewhat. People understand going to the Moon, but not orbiting the Earth doing science experiments... Really, the conquest of space cannot be just going back and forth, over and over. There is no political will to explore the planets... for example, to go to Mars."
Space Quote of the Month - August - September 2003:"In the skies today we saw destruction and tragedy. Yet, farther than we can see, there is comfort and hope. In the words of the prophet Isaiah, 'Lift your eyes and look to the heavens. Who created all these? He who brings out the starry hosts one by one and calls them each by name. Because of His great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.'
...May God bless the grieving families, and may God continue to bless America."
Space Quote of the Month - July - August 2003:
"In my own view, the important achievement of Apollo was a demonstration that humanity is not forever chained to this planet, and our visions go rather further than that, and our opportunities are unlimited."
Space Quote of the Month - June - July 2003:
Space Quote of the Month - May - June 2003:
Space Quote of the Month - April - May 2003:
"...The tragedy that has occurred, the fact that we lost our comrades, the fact is that they gave their lives for the continued space exploration. The fact that we are together and that it's an international project allows us to continue this effort. We have the capabilities of different countries that we can put together to continue. I think that our Expedition confirms that, shows that we continue working even in such a difficult time period."
Space Quote of the Month - March - April 2003:
"We had highly anticipated their return because we couldn't wait to congratulate them for their extraordinary performance and their excellent efforts on the science mission on this very important flight. They dedicated their lives to pushing the scientific challenges for all of us here on Earth. ... The loss of this valiant crew is something we will never be able to get over."
Space Quote of the Month - February - March 2003:
"All Americans today are thinking ... of the families of these men and women who have been given this sudden shock and grief. You're not alone. Our entire nation grieves with you. And those you loved will always have the respect and gratitude of this country. The cause in which they died will continue. Mankind is led into the darkness beyond our world by the inspiration of discovery and the longing to understand. Our journey into space will go on."
Space Quote of the Month - January - February 2003:
"I tend to get more wrapped up in my own small role as an engineer and scientist and sometimes, probably wrongly, don't look at the historic significance of things... We still have to carry out our primary missions and the participants are watching our primary missions and hopefully some contributions on their own to what we can do in space and bringing it back to the people."
