The concept of life after death or the afterlife is often evoked under a religious aspect, but now, even scientists are deciding on the existence or not of one of the greatest mysteries of life. NASA rocket engineer Wernher von Braun said life after death exists, and science can prove it.
Many religions address the aspect of life after death, and history has also revealed that people from older civilizations believed that there was life after death.
Von Braun, the European Space Agency’s top rocket engineer, who was also instrumental in winning the United States in the space race against Soviet Russia, said in his book The Third Book of Words to Live By, that the guiding principles of the universe can confirm the existence of God and life after death.
He explained that no one, or anything in general, truly disappears from the universe and that the human soul is also immortal. Von Braun also believes that those who believe in life after death are more motivated to be better people, despite the skepticism that science can often give.
“I think science has a real surprise for skeptics. Science, for example, tells us that nothing in nature, not even the smallest particle, can disappear without a trace,” von Braun explained.

The rocket engineer also likened this concept to nature, and how it doesn’t die out, but only transforms.
“If God applies this fundamental principle to the smallest and most insignificant parts of his universe, isn’t it logical to assume that he also applies it to the masterpiece of his creation – the human soul? »
He has spoken and written publicly about the complementarity of science and religion, the afterlife of the soul, and his belief in God. He said, “Through science, man strives to learn more about the mysteries of creation. »
Von Braun is not the only scientist to believe that life after death exists, as others believe that humans somehow continue to live even after death.
Physicist and comedian Aaron Freeman opened up about this concept in 2005 on an NPR show. He explained that the universe is “wired” to conserve all energy, including that of human beings.
Not addressing the religious aspect of the afterlife, Freeman went on to say that humans are still part of the cosmos, even after they die. According to the law of conservation of energy, energy cannot be destroyed, it can only be transformed. Freeman then asserted that this also applies to humans, saying that the energy of humans does not disappear but is only reorganized.
