What are the best fission quotes?

We've gathered this hand-picked list of quotes to show you what is fission!

Whether a inspirational quote from your favorite celebrity Robert A. Heinlein, Erich Fromm or an motivational message about giving it your best from a successful business person, we can all benefit from a famous fission quote.

When any government, or any church for that matter, undertakes to say to its subjects, This you may not read, this you must not see, this you are forbidden to know, the end result is tyranny and oppression, no matter how holy the motives. Mighty little force is needed to control a man whose mind has been hoodwinked; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, a man whose mind is free. No, not the rack, not fission bombs, - not anything - you can't conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him. — Robert A. Heinlein

The pace of science forces the pace of technique. Theoretical physics forces atomic energy on us; the successful production of the fission bomb forces upon us the manufacture of the hydrogen bomb. We do not choose our problems, we do not choose our products; we are pushed, we are forced -- by what? By a system which has no purpose and goal transcending it, and which makes man its appendix. — Erich Fromm

The fundamental point in fabricating a chain reacting machine is of course to see to it that each fission produces a certain number of neutrons and some of these neutrons will again produce fission. — Enrico Fermi

France generates a significant part of its energy requirements from fission reactors and these have achieved a perfect safety record. We build ours all differently. — Wilson Greatbatch

Nearly all of our existing power sources are generators which use a heat cycle. This includes our coal, oil, and gas fired utilities, our automobiles, trucks, and trains, and even our nuclear fission utility power plants. — Wilson Greatbatch

Rocket scientists agree that we have about reached the limit of our ability to travel in space using chemical rockets. To achieve anything near the speed of light we will need a new energy source and a new propellant. Nuclear fission is not an option. — Wilson Greatbatch

Other paths would include making nuclear fission cheap enough and safe enough that people broadly embrace it, so that could be scaled up. — Bill Gates

Modern thinking is that time did not start with the big bang, and that there was a multiverse even before the big bang. In the inflation theory, and in string theory, there were universes before our big bang, and that big bangs are happening all the time. Universes are formed when bubbles collide or fission into smaller bubles. — Michio Kaku
