By taking the lives of our young, and wounding the wombs and lives of their mothers, we are flying in the face of God. We cannot play God. If we continue down this path of destruction, we will be met at the gates by our own doom.
– Alveda King
Flying in space is risky. It will never be safe, and the best thing we can do is manage those risks. It’s important for people, for human beings, to be in space because they’re adaptable and because they’re not pre-programmed software that can go off and do tasks that are appropriate for machines.
– Alan G. Poindexter
Among all the marvels of modern invention, that with which I am most concerned is, of course, air transportation. Flying is perhaps the most dramatic of recent scientific attainment. In the brief span of thirty-odd years, the world has seen an inventor’s dream first materialized by the Wright brothers at Kitty Hawk become an everyday actuality.
