"contemporary societies will soon see extraterrestrials as the saviors of mankind"

"Jesus might be the son of a star child."

Jesuit Pater Giuseppe Tanzella Nitti | information coming from another world

"Very soon we will not have to deny our Christian faith...but there is information coming from another world, and once it is confirmed it is going to require a re-reading of the Gospel as we know it."

Jesuit Father Giuseppe Tanzella Nitti

Michio Kaku | in my field, uses the so-called Scientific Method

"In Science, we always say that you make observations you have a theory you make more observations and it’s a very very tedious process… WRONG! Nobody that I know of in my field, uses the so-called Scientific Method. In our field, it’s by the seat of your pants, it’s leaps of logic, it’s GUESSWORK."

Dr. Michio Kaku

Michio Kaku | the largest mismatch between theory and experiment

"Usually in science, if we're off by a factor of 2 or a factor of 10, we call that horrible. We say, something's wrong with the theory. We're off by a factor of 10! However, in cosmology, we're off by a factor of 10 to the 120th. That is one with 100 and 20 zeroes after it. This is the largest mismatch between theory and experiment in the history of science."

Neil deGrasse Tyson | I’m a fan of what Mark Twain said

"I'm a fan of what Mark Twain said, he said; Get your facts first, and then you can distort them as much as you please."

Don Pettit | The only limit to human future is in our own imagination

"I'd go to the moon in a Nanosecond, but the Problem is that we no longer have that technology to do that anymore, we used to have it, but we destroyed it and it's a painful process to build it back again, but going to Mars should be one of the next series of steps that humans do. The first step should be going back to the Moon for a number of technical reasons and exploration reasons. And then after that Mars, maybe high orbit in Venus atmosphere maybe going to Europa. There's all kinds of targets to go to, places of interest in our solar system. The only limit to human future is in our own imagination."

Don Pettit (Nasa „Astronaut“)

Elon Musk | you can tell it’s real because it looks so fake

"I think it looks so ridiculous and impossible, you can tell it's real because it looks so fake, honestly. We'd have way better CGI if it was fake. The colors all look kind of weird in space. There's no atmospheric occlusion; everything's too crisp. It's just literally a normal car in space — I kind of like the absurdity of that, it's kind of silly and fun, but I think that silly, fun things are important … I think the imagery of it is something that's going to get people excited around the world, and it's still tripping me out. I'm tripping balls here."

Lawrence Krauss | asking the right experimental questions

"We do not know whether we are on the right track and whether we are even asking the right experimental questions. But we have no choice but to continue with all our might."

Lawrence Krauss

Carl Sagan | Imagination will often carry us to worlds

"Imagination will often carry us to worlds that never were. But without it we go nowhere."

Carl Sagan

James Dresden | A truth’s initial commotion

"A truth’s initial commotion is directly proportional to how deeply the lie was believed. It wasn’t the world being round that agitated people, but that the world wasn’t flat. When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic."

James Dresden

George Bernard Shaw | In the Middle Ages people believed that the earth was flat

"In the Middle Ages people believed that the earth was flat, for which they had at least the evidence of their senses: we believe it to be round, not because as many as one per cent of us could give the physical reasons for so quaint a belief, but because modern science has convinced us that nothing that is obvious is true, and that everything that is magical, improbable, extraordinary, gigantic, microscopic, heartless, or outrageous is scientific."

George Bernard Shaw

George Bernard Shaw | We are more gullible and superstitious today

"We are more gullible and superstitious today than we were in the Middle Ages, and an example of modern credulity is the widespread belief that the Earth is round. The average man can advance not a single reason for thinking that the Earth is round. He merely swallows this theory because there is something about it that appeals to the twentieth century mentality."

George Bernard Shaw

Dr. Erik Verlinde | For me gravity doesn’t exist

"We’ve known for a long time gravity doesn’t exist, it’s time to yell it."

Neville T. Jones | the world is supposedly rotating at 1,039 mph at the equator

"Whilst we sit drinking our cup of tea or coffee the world is supposedly rotating at 1,039 mph at the equator, whizzing around the Sun at 66,500 mph, hurtling towards Lyra at 20,000 mph, revolving around the centre of the 'Milky Way' at 500,000 mph and merrily moving at God knows what velocity as a consequence of the 'Big Bong.' And not even a hint of a ripple on the surface of our tea, yet tap the table lightly with your finger and ... !"

Isaac Newton | so great an absurdity that

"[…]that one body may act upon another at a distance through a vacuum, without the mediation of anything else, by and through which their action and force may be conveyed from one to another, is to me so great an absurdity that I believe no man who has in philosophical matters a competent faculty of thinking can ever fall into it."

Isaac Newton

Fred Hoyle | Once a photograph of the Earth, taken from outside

“Once a photograph of the Earth, taken from outside, is available…a new idea as powerful as any in history will be let loose.“
