According to http://www.kudo4you.com/ Sergei Korolev once said: "Doroga k 
Zvjozdam Otkrita" (The way to the stars is open).

Does anyone know if Korolev really said this? If he did, at what occasion? 
The launch of Sputnik 1? The launch of Vostok 1? Or on some other occasion?

According to http://www.freemaninstitute.com/quotes.htm The New York Times 
in 1936 wrote: "A rocket will never be able to leave the earth's atmosphere".

Does anyone know if this is true? Did NYT really print this?
