Into the infinite and beyond!
The concept of space is crazy! The fact that there are so many things we have not even discovered in space is enough to destroy the mind.
For us, the earth is everything we know, but in reality we are nothing compared to the universe. Bold men and women have traveled the planet Earth to explore what's outside of our atmosphere. These brave people are astronauts and have said some amazing things about space.
I never thought How Dangerous A job of an astronaut is until a recent visit to the Kennedy Space Center in Central Florida. There I watched videos of astronauts, saw space shuttles, and learned about the heroes who had died on their attempted journeys to the hereafter. It opened my eyes to how cool the topic is and I was definitely intrigued.
Maybe someday we will travel by rocket ship and walk on strange planets. As SpaceX works to send tourists into space, this day could come sooner than we think. For the moment, however, we leave space to the experts, astronauts, and aerospace engineers who are exploring space.
Everything we know about space is what NASA told us. Since we ourselves can not yet go out into the universe, we rely on the words of astronauts and aerospace engineers.
Here are 50 inspiring quotes about space and the universe of experts.
