Quotes

"That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind" Armstrong insisted he said, although the message back to Earth was slightly garbled
The theology lecturer, from Bishop Grosseteste University in Lincoln, said: "Eight hundred years before they came up with the theory about the Big Bang - he came up with something that is incredibly similar."
"My research has long been focused on Mars," Christensen said in a statement. "But my broader interests involve all solar-system bodies, and I've spent the last several years working on an asteroid mission. I really appreciate this honor."
"Grosseteste was revolutionary in the history of science because he knew that everything was about mathematics and that good scientists should base their knowledge on what they observe and not what they think. He has been called the founder of the tradition of scientific thought and a minorminor planet has even been named after him. And yet very few people have even heard of him."
