Wernher von Braun
My experiences with science led me to God. They challenge science to prove the existence of God. But must we really light a candle to see the sun?
Braun quotes
It is in scientific honesty that I endorse the presentation of alternative theories for the origin of the universe, life and man in the science classroom. It would be an error to overlook the possibility that the universe was planned rather than happening by chance.
Braun
Don't tell me that man doesn't belong out there. Man belongs wherever he wants to go and he'll do plenty well when he gets there.




Braun Wernher von quotes
Nature does not know extinction; all it knows is transformation. Everything science has taught me, and continues to teach me, strengthens my belief in the continuity of our spiritual existence after death.
Braun Wernher von
Basic research is when I am doing what I don't know what I am doing.
Wernher von Braun quotes
If our intention had been merely to bring back a handful of soil and rocks from the lunar gravel pit and then forget the whole thing, we would certainly be history's biggest fools.
Wernher von Braun
We knew that we had created a new means of warfare, and the question as to what nation, to what victorious nation we were willing to entrust this brainchild of ours was a moral decision more than anything else. We wanted to see the world spared another conflict such as Germany had just been through, and we felt that only by surrendering such a weapon to people who are guided by the Bible could such an assurance to the world be best secured.
Braun Wernher von quotes
For me, the idea of a creation is not conceivable without invoking the necessity of design. One cannot be exposed to the law and order of the universe without concluding that there must be design and purpose behind it all.
Braun
"Once the rockets are up
who cares where they come down
that's not my department,"
says Wernher von Braun.
Braun Wernher von
Science does not have a moral dimension. It is like a knife. If you give it to a surgeon or a murderer, each will use it differently.
