Never Say Never (compiled from “The Experts Speak” by Cern and Navasky” There is no likelihood that Man can ever tap the power of the atom. ----Robert Milliken, Nobel Prize in Physics, 1923 The energy produced by the breaking down of the atom is a very poor kind of thing. Anyone who expects a source of power from the retransformation of these atoms is talking nonsense. ----Ernest Rutherford, British Physicist, Nobel Prize in Chemistry, 1908 There has been a great deal said about a 3,000 mile rocket. In my opinion, such a thing is impossible ... ...we can leave it out of our thinking. ----Vannevar Bush, Physicist, MIT, 1945 Nobel Laureate There is no hope for the fanciful idea of reaching the moon, because of insurmountable barriers to escaping the Earth's gravity. ----Dr. F.R. Moulton, astronomer, University of Chicago, 1932 While theoretically and technically, television may be possible, commercially and financially I consider it an impossibility, a development of which we need waste little time dreaming.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
