This is the goal: To make available for life every place where life is possible. To make inhabitable all worlds as yet uninhabitable, and all life purposeful.

— Hermann Oberth

The most genuine Hermann Oberth quotes that are free to learn and impress others

We cannot take credit for our record avancement in certain scientific fields alone. We have been helped, and we have been helped by the people of other worlds.


It is my thesis that flying saucers are real and that they are space ships from another solar system.There is no doubt in my mind that these objects are interplanetary craft of some sort. I and my colleagues are confident that they do not originate in our solar system.


Today, we cannot produce machines that fly the same as UFOs do.

They are flying by means of artificial fields of Gravity. This would explain the sudden changes of directions. This hypothesis would also explain the piling-up of these discs into a cylindrical or cigar-shaped mothership upon leaving the Earth.


If there is a small rocket on top of a big one, and if the big one is jettisoned and the small one is ignited, then their speeds are added.


Our educational system is like an automobile which has strong rear lights, brightly illuminating the past. But looking forward things are barely discernible.


In the United States, I am often addressed as a doctor.

I should like to point out, however, that I am not such and shall never think of becoming one.


It is my conclusion that UFOs do exist, are very real, and are spaceships from another or more than one solar system. They are possibly manned by intelligent observers who are members of a race carrying out long-range scientific investigations of our earth for centuries.


Despite the immense distance between our own solar system (including the earth) and the nearest other solar systems, a journey from one system to another is theoretically possible, once an unlimited source of power is developed.


The rockets... can be built so powerfully that they could be capable of carrying a man aloft.


I refrained from writing another one, thinking to myself: Never mind, I will prove that I am able to become a greater scientist than some of you, even without the title of doctor.


But if we establish the working hypothesis that the UFOs are machines, we also have to assume the following: a) They are not built by human beings.. b) They are flying by means of artificial fields of gravity.. c) They produce high-tension electric charges in order to push the air out of their paths, so it does not start glowing, and strong magnetic fields to influence the ionized air at higher altitudes.
