Atheism is so senseless. When I look at the solar system, I see the earth at the right distance from the sun to receive the proper amounts of heat and light. This did not happen by chance.— Isaac Newton
Impressive Solar quotations
When you look at the stars and the galaxy, you feel that you are not just from any particular piece of land, but from the solar system.
Let our government be like that of the solar system.
Let the general government be like the sun and the states the planets, repelled yet attracted, and the whole moving regularly and harmoniously in several orbits.
No new creation or destruction of matter is within the reach of chemical agency.
We might as well attempt to introduce a new planet into the solar system, or to annihilate one already in existence, as to create or destroy a particle of hydrogen.
We need to focus on green jobs: solar, wind, geothermal, biomass.
There's so many opportunities. But other countries like China are getting ahead of the curve.
People always think of technology as something having silicon in it.
But a pencil is technology. Any language is technology. Technology is a tool we use to accomplish a particular task and when one talks about appropriate technology in developing countries, appropriate may mean anything from fire to solar electricity.
All of this got me thinking about the history of the westward expansion, and got me to wondering how the exploration of the Solar System would be changed if there were an indigenous presence out there.
Now, of course, the great thing about the solar system as a frontier is that there are no Indians, so you can have all the glory of the myth of the American westward expansion without any of the guilt.
The force that is running inside you is the same force running the solar system.
.. the moment you relax from the 'I' the 'other' will disappear... you become 'one' with the truth.
All the atoms of our bodies will be blown into space in the disintegration of the solar system, to live on forever as mass or energy. That's what we should be teaching our children, not fairy tales about angels and seeing grandma in Heaven.
What do oil company executives, vampires and NASA bureaucrats all have in common? They fear solar energy.
As President, I'll invest in renewable energies like wind power, solar power, and the next generation of homegrown biofuels. That's how America is going to free itself from our dependence on foreign oil not through short-term gimmicks, but through a real, long-term commitment to transform our energy sector.
In 1860 a total eclipse of the sun was visible in British America.
There's life all over this universe, but the only life in the solar system is on earth, and in the whole universe we are the only men.
I'd put my money on the sun and solar energy.
What a source of power! I hope we don't have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that.
There is an urgent need to stop subsidizing the fossil fuel industry, dramatically reduce wasted energy, and significantly shift our power supplies from oil, coal, and natural gas to wind, solar, geothermal, and other renewable energy sources.
It's time for the human race to enter the solar system.
The use of solar energy has not been opened up because the oil industry does not own the sun.
Our solar system is fantastically bizarre.
There are worlds with features we never imagined. Storms larger than planets, moons with under-surface oceans, lakes of methane, worldlets that swap places...and that's just at Saturn.
Man must at all costs overcome the Earth's gravity and have, in reserve, the space at least of the Solar System.
I think a portfolio standard should go beyond wind, solar and geothermal energy to include renewable energy like hydropower and clean alternatives such as coal gasification, clean coal, nuclear energy and, finally, credits for achieving new levels of efficiency and conservation.
The solar system has no anxiety about its reputation.
I've been told that I have a lot of energy.
The secret is that I use renewable resources. Some days I'm solar powered. Some days I'm wind powered. And some people in this room might think I'm hybrid gas-powered. You'll just have to guess which it is today.
I felt like I might as well have been living in another part of the solar system.
Dark energy is incredibly strange, but actually it makes sense to me that it went unnoticed, because dark energy has no effect on daily life, or even inside our solar system.
Once you get to earth orbit, you're halfway to anywhere in the solar system.
Because we are now running out of gas and oil, we must prepare quickly for a third change, to strict conservation and to the use of ... permanent renewable energy sources, like solar power.
Mars is the only place in the solar system where it's possible for life to become multi-planetarian.
In future, children won't perceive the stars as mere twinkling points of light: they'll learn that each is a 'Sun', orbited by planets fully as interesting as those in our Solar system.
The radiations that pour upon the earth cause the biosphere to take on properties unknown to lifeless planetary surfaces, and thus transform the face of the earth. Activated by radiation, the matter of the biosphere collects and redistributes solar energy, and converts it ultimately into free energy capable of doing work on earth.
I know that nuclear is better than fossil fuels when it comes to carbon dioxide, but nuclear energy is by no means clean. We don't know what to do with the waste we already have and it seems like a bad idea to me to make more when we have so many cleaner options such as wind and solar.
Then, I realized that there is an indigenous presence in the Solar System.
It's us. So, then, I got to wondering what would happen if a more technologically advanced society moved next door to us, the way we moved next door to the American Indians.
The Moon and Mars were the two most likely candidates for life in the solar system; what exists beyond our solar system is mere guesswork.
Most of the dogmatic religions have exhibited a perverse talent for taking the wrong side on the most important concepts in the material universe, from the structure of the solar system to the origin of man.
The Venus transit is not a spectacle the way a total solar eclipse is a spectacle.
