I've always hankered after going into space and walking on the moon and Mars. I did want to be an astronaut, and had there been a manned space flight programme in the U.K., I would have been knocking on the door. ~ David Mackay
Thout Astronaut quotes by David Mackay
Astronauts will remain the explorers, the pioneers-the first to go back to moon and on to Mars. But I think it's really important to make space space available to as many people as we can. It's going to be a while before we can launch people for less than $20 million a ticket. But that day is coming. ~ Sally Ride
Thout Astronaut quotes by Sally Ride
When you read as many books as Klaus Baudelaire, you are going to learn a great deal of information that might not become useful for a long time. You might read a book that would teach you all about the exploration of outer space, even if you do not become an astronaut until you are eighty years old. You might read a book about how to preform tricks on ice skates, and then not be forced to preform these tricks for a few weeks. You might read a book on how to have a successful marriage, when the only women you will ever love has married someone else and then perished one terrible afternoon. ~ Lemony Snicket
Thout Astronaut quotes by Lemony Snicket
I wasn't destined to be an astronaut. I had to turn myself into one. ~ Chris Hadfield
Thout Astronaut quotes by Chris Hadfield
Dogbert: So, Since Columbus is dead, you have no evidence that the earth is round. Dilbert: Look. You can Ask Senator John Glenn. He orbited the earth when he was an astronaut. Dogbert: So, your theory depends on the honesty of politicians. Dilbert: Yes ... no, wait ... ~ Scott Adams
Thout Astronaut quotes by Scott Adams
I think if a writer is being honest they'd admit to a file full of a dozen or more stories that are all started to varying degrees. They're like the kid who wants to be a firefighter and a police officer and an astronaut. ~ Dan Alatorre
Thout Astronaut quotes by Dan Alatorre
Like a picture out of focus, I'm starting to think that I don't even know who I am anymore. And that feeling – like being sucked out into the vacuum of space without a suit – is the most terrifying of all. ~ Brian McBride
Thout Astronaut quotes by Brian  McBride
So most astronauts are astronauts for a couple of years before they are assigned to a flight. ~ Sally Ride
Thout Astronaut quotes by Sally Ride
Collaboration begins with mutual understanding and respect. ~ Astronaut Ron Garan
Thout Astronaut quotes by Astronaut Ron Garan
An astronaut is someone who's able to make good decisions quickly, with incomplete information, when the consequences really matter. I didn't miraculously become one either, after just eight days in space. But I did get in touch with the fact that I didn't even know what I didn't know. ~ Chris Hadfield
Thout Astronaut quotes by Chris Hadfield
You think you want to be an astronaut, and then after a while you're a geo-major for whatever reason. That's just the way it is in college. ~ Rob Brown
Thout Astronaut quotes by Rob Brown
HELLO. Hello hello hello hello hello hello.
Damn, now I've gone and done it. I've made hello go all abstract and weird. It looks like an alien rune now, something an astronaut would find engraved on a moon rock and go, A strange moon word! I must bring this back to Earth as a gift for my deaf son! And which would then
of course
hatch flying space piranhas and wipe out humanity in less than three days, SOMEHOW sparing the astronaut just so he could be in the final shot, weeping on his knees in the ruins of civilization and crying out to the heavens, It was just helloooooooo!
Oh. Huh. It's totally back to normal now. No more alien doom. Astronaut, I just kept you from destroying Earth,
YOU'RE WELCOME. ~ Laini Taylor
Thout Astronaut quotes by Laini Taylor
During the heat of the space race in the 1960s, the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration decided it needed a ballpoint pen to write in the zero gravity confines of its space capsules. After considerable research and development, the Astronaut Pen was developed at a cost of approximately $1 million US. The pen worked and also enjoyed some modest success as a novelty item back here on earth. The Soviet Union, faced with the same problem, used a pencil. ~ Neil DeGrasse Tyson
Thout Astronaut quotes by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
On the day I started college in 1979, no woman had ever been on the United States Supreme Court or served as the Speaker of the House. None had been an astronaut or the solo anchor of a network evening news broadcast. Not one had been president of an Ivy League college or run a serious campaign for president. ~ Dee Dee Myers
Thout Astronaut quotes by Dee Dee Myers
The problem is that people have tried to look away from space and from the meaning of the moon landing. I remember seeing a picture of an astronaut standing on the moon. It was up at Yale and someone has scrawled on it, 'So what?' That is the arrogance of the kind of academic narrowness one too often sees; it is trapped in its own predictable prejudices, its own stale categories. It is the mind dulled to the poetry of existence. It's fashionable now to demand some economic payoff from space, some reward to prove it was all worthwhile. Those who say this resemble the apelike creatures in 2001. They are fighting for food among themselves, while one separates himself from them and moves to the slab, motivated by awe. That is the point they are missing. He is the one who evolves into a human being; he is the one who understands the future. ~ Joseph Campbell
Thout Astronaut quotes by Joseph Campbell
As when astronaut Mike Mulhane was asked by a NASA psychiatrist what epitaph he'd like to have on his gravestone, Mulhane answered, "A loving husband and devoted father," though in reality, he jokes in "Riding Rockets," "I would have sold my wife and children into slavery for a ride into space. ~ Mary Roach
Thout Astronaut quotes by Mary Roach
Well, the coolest thing I have seen so far, in terms of, like, me being an astronaut and seeing something unusual, was the rendezvous, the docking of a Progress spaceship. ~ Kevin A. Ford
Thout Astronaut quotes by Kevin A. Ford
Anything from making a mistake on an experiment that would ruin some scientist on earth's experiment - career, potentially - to doing something wrong with the satellite that a country was depending on for its communications, to making some mistake that could actually cost you and the crew either a mission or your lives. So there is a lot of pressure that's put on every astronaut to just make sure that he or she understands exactly what to do, exactly when to do it, and is trained and prepared to carry it out. ~ Sally Ride
Thout Astronaut quotes by Sally Ride
Open collaboration encourages greater accountability, which in turn fosters trust. ~ Ron Garan
Thout Astronaut quotes by Ron Garan
Opportunity could be defined in so many ways. There's one way of defining it, equality of opportunity, which is in fact the equality of capability, but the libertarians got there first and they have - like the Americans getting onto the moon, naming every crater after something like an astronaut - they have got there and named "opportunity" in a way that we cannot get ownership of now. ~ Amartya Sen
Thout Astronaut quotes by Amartya Sen
I think doing something of your life is something that you've got deep inside, whether it's to, whether you want to be an astronaut or a, whether you want to do science, or whether you want to be a movie star, or whatever. ~ Philippe Perrin
Thout Astronaut quotes by Philippe Perrin
Until there is no longer the possibility of sadness, of isolation, there can be no gravity. We all float by, rootless, taking clumsy astronaut steps and calling it progress. ~ Meg Wolitzer
Thout Astronaut quotes by Meg Wolitzer
I think it's good to have competition. Now we have a third country that can launch astronauts, so it's good for all of us. It makes us a little bit more competitive and wanting to be the leader. ~ Leroy Chiao
Thout Astronaut quotes by Leroy Chiao
we roar along the rust belts - - the great red spot - -
the polar vortex - - the caress of solar flares - -
ruffle the molten methane and ammonia oceans of me - -
the storm-riven non-surface of me and mine - -
that which you call skin - -
a threadbare term to describe where I stop and others begin - - ~ Yann Rousselot
Thout Astronaut quotes by Yann Rousselot
My neighborhood was rough, but I live a great life now. I don't fight that much now. I don't look for it anyway, but if someone hits your mother, whether you're a star, an accountant, or an astronaut or anything ... I mean it's your mother, so I lost my mind. ~ Shia Labeouf
Thout Astronaut quotes by Shia Labeouf
As a kid, I wanted to be an astronaut. And my own passion was that I wanted to be a film director. I realized that being an astronaut was not going to be an option, so I said, "Well, I'm going to be a director and do films in space." ~ Alfonso Cuaron
Thout Astronaut quotes by Alfonso Cuaron
Sometimes people ask me how difficult the astronaut program was, but being in Sierra Leone, being responsible for the health of more than 200 people, seven days a week, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, at age 26 - that prepared me to take on a lot of different challenges. ~ Mae Jemison
Thout Astronaut quotes by Mae Jemison
I was selected to be an astronaut on a military program called the Manned Orbiting Laboratory back in '67. That program got cancelled in '69 and NASA ended up taking half of us. ~ Robert Crippen
Thout Astronaut quotes by Robert Crippen
I saw sunrises fade and burn among fleets of sparks. The moon blossomed
like a lily carved of bone ...
The Death of the Astronaut, page 390. ~ Lewis Turco
Thout Astronaut quotes by Lewis Turco
I think professional cosmonaut trainer in fact said that we are the only two [with Damian Kulash ] he found fit to be astronauts, which is ridiculous because we are far from fit from being astronauts. So you can imagine what was going on up there. ~ Trish Sie
Thout Astronaut quotes by Trish Sie
And people are different from animals because they can have pictures on the screens in their heads of things which they are not looking at. They can have pictures of someone in another room. Or they can have a picture of what is going to happen tomorrow. Or they can have pictures of themselves as an astronaut. Or they can have pictures of really big numbers. Or they can have pictures of Chains of Reasoning when they're trying to work something out.

And that is why a dog can go to the vet and have a really big operation and have metal pins sticking out of its leg but if it sees a cat it forgets that it has pins sticking out of its leg and chases after the cat. But when a person has an operation it has a picture in its head of the hurt carrying on for months and months. ~ Mark Haddon
Thout Astronaut quotes by Mark Haddon
I tell students that the opportunities I had were a result of having a good educational background. Education is what allows you to stand out. ~ Ellen Ochoa
Thout Astronaut quotes by Ellen Ochoa
Then, much later, my next dream was to become an astronaut, and I was fortunate to realize that dream, also. ~ Claude Nicollier
Thout Astronaut quotes by Claude Nicollier
Make Believe

When I wake up in the morning
Not all is what it seems
I drift through a world of make believe
Between my real life and my dreams.

Strange Adventures from the space book
That I read the night before
Crowd in upon on my drowsiness
Through imagination's door.

Between sleeping and waking
The alarm clock's jangalang cry
Becomes the roaring fire-railed rocket
That hurls me through the sky.

My bed's a silver spacecraft
Which I pilot all alone
Whisp'ring through endless stratospheres
Towards planets still unknown.

Outside through the mists of morning
The spinning lights of cars
In my make-believe space voyage
Become eternities of stars.

Is that my mother calling something
That my dreams can't understand?
Or can it be crackling instructions
From far off Mission Command?

Gareth Owen ~ John Foster
Thout Astronaut quotes by John Foster
I think that witnessing ecological problems visible from space is one of the new and essential roles of astronauts. ~ Philippe Perrin
Thout Astronaut quotes by Philippe Perrin
Before I settled on music, I wanted to be an archaeologist, an astronaut, all sorts of really diverse things. ~ Joan Jett
Thout Astronaut quotes by Joan Jett
the astronaut David R. Scott performed the feather and lead weight experiment and found that indeed they did hit the ground at the same time. ~ Stephen Hawking
Thout Astronaut quotes by Stephen Hawking
