" All that we have already accomplished, and all in the future that we shall achieve, is the outgrowth not of a soulless, barren technology, nor of a grasping state imperialism. Rather, it is the product of unrestrained human talent and energy restlessly probing for the betterment of humanity."
~ Dwight D. Eisenhower, George C. Marshall Space Flight Center Dedication, September 8, 1960
