Talon, Rocket Boy: Spaceflight book 1

We looked at each other and at the exact same time we both said, “let’s build a rocket like that guy in Florida.” Yah’ let’s do it,
It is going to be awesome; no one will believe us that we are going to build a spaceship rocket.

Talon, Rocket Boy: Spaceflight book 1

You cannot look up at the night sky on the Planet Earth and not wonder what it’s like to be up there amongst the stars. And I always look up at the moon and see it as the single most romantic place within the cosmos.

Time travel used to be thought of as just science fiction, but Einstein’s general theory of relativity allows for the possibility that we could warp space-time so much that you could go off in a rocket and return before you set out.

Stephen Hawking

Part of life’s mystery depends on future possibilities, and mystery is an elusive quality which evaporates when sampled frequently, to be followed by boredom.”

Michael Collins

Science is a way of life. Science is a perspective. Science is the process that takes us from confusion to understanding in a manner that’s precise, predictive and reliable – a transformation, for those lucky enough to experience it, that is empowering and emotional.
