"Man must rise above the Earth—to the top of the atmosphere and beyond—for only thus will he fully understand the world in which he lives."

"Do not look at stars as bright spots only.
Try to take in the vastness of the universe."
- Maria Mitchell

"Space is for everybody.
It's not just for a few people in science or math,
or for a select group of astronauts. That's our new frontier out there,
and it's everybody's business to know about space."

- Christa McAuliffe
