By Quote
Albert Einstein Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new.
Albert Einstein Scientists investigate that which already is; engineers create that which has never been.
Albert Einstein No amount of experimentation can ever prove me right; a single experiment can prove me wrong.
Albert Einstein Creativity is intelligence having fun.
Alexander Calder To an engineer, good enough means perfect. With an artist, there's no such thing as perfect.
Ancient paradox Only one thing is certain - that is, nothing is certain. If this statement is true, it is also false.
Anonym To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.
Anonym The only time you have too much fuel is when you're on fire.
Anonym Never trade luck for skill.
Archimedes Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the world.
Arthur C. Clarke When a distinguished but elderly scientist states that something is possible, he is almost certainly right. When he states that something is impossible, he is very probably wrong.
Arthur C. Clarke Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
Benjamin Franklin An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.
Bertrand Russell Science may set limits to knowledge, but should not set limits to imagination.
Buzz Aldrin Mars is there, waiting to be reached.
Freeman Dyson A good scientist is a person with original ideas. A good engineer is a person who makes a design that works with as few original ideas as possible. There are no prima donnas in engineering.
Freeman Dyson Aviation is the branch of engineering that is least forgiving of mistakes.
Galileo Galilei By denying scientific principles, one may maintain any paradox.
Galileo Galilei Mathematics is the language in which God has written the universe.
Galileo Galilei If I were again beginning my studies, I would follow the advice of Plato and start with mathematics.
Gene Kranz Failure is not an option.
George B. Shaw Science never solves a problem without creating ten more.
Immanuel Kant Science is organized knowledge. Wisdom is organized life.
Indiana Jones Nothing shocks me. I'm a scientist.
Johann W. Goethe We see only what we know.
Jon McBride A pilot who doesn't have any fear probably isn't flying his plane to its maximum.
Leonardo da Vinci Nature never breaks her own laws.
Leonardo da Vinci Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.
Leonardo da Vinci Where there is shouting, there is no true knowledge.
Leonardo da Vinci I have offended God and mankind because my work didn't reach the quality it should have.
Leonardo da Vinci All our knowledge has its origins in our perceptions.
Max Planck Scientific discovery and scientific knowledge have been achieved only by those who have gone in pursuit of it without any practical purpose whatsoever in view.
Max Planck A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it.
Michael Collins To go places and do things that have never been done before - that's what living is all about.
Neil Armstrong This is one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.
Newton's first law Every body persists in its state of being at rest or of moving uniformly straight forward, except insofar as it is compelled to change its state by force impressed.
Newton's first law An object that is at rest will stay at rest unless an external force acts upon it.
Newton's first law An object that is in motion will not change its velocity unless an external force acts upon it.
Newton's law of universal gravitation Every point mass in the universe attracts every other point mass with a force that is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.
Newton's second law The acceleration of a body is directly proportional to, and in the same direction as, the net force acting on the body, and inversely proportional to its mass.
Newton's third law To every action there is always an equal and opposite reaction: or the forces of two bodies on each other are always equal and are directed in opposite directions.
Niels H. D. Bohr If anybody says he can think about quantum problems without getting giddy, that only shows he has not understood the first thing about them.
Ralph W. Emerson Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
Richard Feynman Scientists are explorers. Philosophers are tourists.
Robert A. Heinlein One man's "magic" is another man's engineering. "Supernatural" is a null word.
Robert H. Goddard The dreams of yesterday are the hopes of today and the reality of tomorrow.
Scott Adams Engineers like to solve problems. If there are no problems handily available, they will create their own problems.
Socrates I know one thing: that I know nothing.
The first law of thermodynamics The law of conservation of energy states that energy can be neither created nor destroyed. However, energy can change forms, and energy can flow from one place to another. The total energy of an isolated system remains the same.
The first law of thermodynamics The flow of heat is a form of energy transfer. In other words, a quantity of heat that flows from a hot body to a cold one can be expressed as an amount of energy being transferred from the hot body to the cold one.
Theodore Von Karman Scientists discover the world that exists; Engineers create the world that never was.
Thomas A. Edison Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.
U.S. Army Ordnance Tracers work both ways.
USAF Ammo Troop If you see a bomb technician running, follow him.
Walter Bagehot A great pleasure in life is doing what people say you cannot do.
Wikipedia, 2077 A space engineer is a professional practitioner who uses scientific knowledge, mathematics, physics, astronomy, propulsion technology, materials science, structural analysis, manufacturing and ingenuity to solve practical problems in space.
Wikipedia, 2077 Space engineers design materials, structures, and systems while considering the limitations imposed by practicality, regulation, safety, ethicality and cost.
Wikipedia, 2077 Space engineers are grounded in applied sciences, and their work in research and development is distinct from the basic research focus of space scientists.
Wikipedia, 2077 In war times, space engineering involves military engineering as well. Such tasks typically include construction and demolition tasks under combat conditions.
Wikipedia, 2077 Space engineers are in a high demand, especially since the Second Space Race of 2029.
Wikipedia, 2077 Space engineers take pride for their ability to get the job done right - no matter how big, how complex, or how remote.
Wikipedia, 2077 The word engineer is derived from the Latin roots 'ingeniare' ("to contrive, devise") and 'ingenium' ("cleverness").
Wikipedia, 2077 SCIENTIFIC METHOD: principles and procedures for the systematic pursuit of knowledge involving the recognition and formulation of a problem, the collection of data through observation and experiment, and the formulation and testing of hypotheses.
Wikipedia, 2077 To be termed scientific, a method of inquiry must be based on empirical and measurable evidence subject to specific principles of reasoning.
Wikipedia, 2077 The laws of science or scientific laws are statements that describe, predict, and perhaps explain why, a range of phenomena behave as they appear to in nature.
Wikipedia, 2077 Scientific laws are strongly supported by empirical evidence - they are scientific knowledge that experiments have repeatedly verified (and never falsified).
William Gibson When you want to know how things really work, study them when they're coming apart.
Yuri Gagarin I see Earth! It is so beautiful!
Yuri Gagarin I could have gone on flying through space forever.
Yuri Gagarin To be the first to enter the cosmos, to engage, single-handed, in an unprecedented duel with nature - could one dream of anything more?
Yuri Gagarin The path of a cosmonaut is not an easy, triumphant march to glory. You have to get to know the meaning not just of joy but also of grief, before being allowed in the spacecraft cabin.
