Quote of the Day
It takes a few years to prepare for a space mission.
On a standard space shuttle crew, two of the astronauts have a test pilot background - the commander and the pilot.
Then during the mission itself, I used the space shuttle's robot arm to release a satellite into orbit.
I slept just floating in the middle of the flight deck, the upper deck of the space shuttle.
NASA has to approve whatever we wear, so there are clothes to choose from, like space shorts - we wear those a lot - and NASA T-shirts.
The food isn't too bad. It's very different from the food that the astronauts ate in the very early days of the space program.
There are aspects of being the first woman in space that I'm not going to enjoy.
The fact that I was going to be the first American woman to go into space carried huge expectations along with it.
I've discovered that half the people would love to go into space and there's no need to explain it to them. The other half can't understand and I couldn't explain it to them. If someone doesn't know why, I can't explain it.
The experience of being in space didn't change my perspective of myself or of the planet or of life. I had no spiritual experience.
The world itself looks cleaner and so much more beautiful. Maybe we can make it that way - the way God intended it to be - by giving everyone, eventually, that new perspective from out in space.
Roger B. Chaffee
Building one space station for everyone was and is insane: we should have built a dozen.
People need to be made conscious of a very simple reality: we have no choice but to share this planet, this small blue sphere floating in the vast reaches of space, with all of our fellow 'passengers.'
What you lose in blindness is the space around you, the place where you are, and without that you might not exist. You could be nowhere at all.
The most important thing we can do is inspire young minds and to advance the kind of science, math and technology education that will help youngsters take us to the next phase of space travel.
We'd never have got a chance to go outside and look at the earth if it hadn't been for space exploration and NASA.
NASA will send up a big sun shade that will be in orbit between the earth and sun and deflect 2 or 3 percent of the sunshine back into space. It would be cheaper than the international space station.
If it hadn't been for the Cold War, neither Russia nor America would have been sending people into space.
Puffy produced four of the tracks on the album. Those are the four songs that are collaborations between Puffy and me. And he gives me my space to work even when we work together, like with my producer and my vocal coach.
There are improbable things suspended in space, like the earth.
Geez, all that money we waste on space exploration; just think how many bombs that would buy!
I think that the ideal space must contain elements of magic, serenity, sorcery and mystery.
I like acting for now. But after seeing Apollo 13, what I really want to do is to be an astronaut. I'm dying to go to a space camp next summer!
Two things I'm obsessed with are the countryside and fields and being in the open space and body parts, so you'll hear me mentioning body parts and human anatomy. I've listened to my songs and I think I am quite visual and I talk about bones and flesh a lot.
We must admit with humility that, while number is purely a product of our minds, space has a reality outside our minds, so that we cannot completely prescribe its properties a priori.
Carl Friedrich Gauss
I acknowledge the privilege of being alive in a human body at this moment, endowed with senses, memories, emotions, thoughts, and the space of mind in its wisdom aspect.
I guess something that you love to do, you gotta ease up off it and give it a little space, come back and be fresh to it.
I will tell you what I can't abide - and I think the Internet has really created a space for it - women criticizing other women and mothers criticizing other mothers.
Cyberspace can't compensate for real space. We benefit from chatting to people face to face.
Make space in your life for the things that matter, for family and friends, love and generosity, fun and joy. Without this, you will burn out in mid-career and wonder where your life went.
