Yet, the mind of man is also magnificent.
For example: New engines will create a magnetic
field that will exude from a
spacecraft for miles. This magnetic field will be like a balloon, carried
at up to 800 kilometers through space by the solar winds, enabling us to
reach Jupiter in 475 days. We
can't create anything greater than what we can conceive. How great was
God's mind to have created this Universe and us in it! More on plasma
propulsion – http://www.popsci.com.
Even newer engines than that are now feasible,
such as engines that use electromagnetic
radiation to get more thrust.
God knew exactly how far to set
the Sun from the Earth; a few million miles more or less and life as we
know it would be impossible
on this Earth.
Our Sun is a close star.
Stars have thermonuclear reactions which consume fuel. Once a star uses
up its hydrogen fuel, its core contracts, raising the temperature to the
point where helium fuses. Helium fuses into carbon,
carbon to neon, and neon to oxygen. Carbon and oxygen combine to form silicone.
Stars convert silicone to iron. A
star's core collapses upon itself when thermonuclear reactions are no longer
able to resist the relentless force of gravity.
Massive stars collapse into neutron
stars, a star with the density of pure neutrons.
As this occurs so fast that the rest of the star has no time to adjust,
the overlying shells fall inward to the star's core. A short wave is produced,
the result of which is a supernova,
where the outer layers of the collapsing star get ejected into space. Some
scientists believe the resulting energy radiation (Gamma
ray bursts) collides with Earth's atmosphere and showers the Earth
with nitrates, however, so far,
no evidence of nitrates has been found in Greenland ice and the Antarctic,
but found elsewhere! Isn't the quest
for discovery endless!
80% of supernovae occur in stars eight
times as massive as the Sun. Questions:
is it evincive that the chemical
makeup of the solar system shows less abundant elements-(hydrogen,
helium, neon, argon) than the cosmic
rays? Why such high levels of refractories?
And why, undergirding the elements (hydrogen, helium, oxygen, carbon, etc.)
and the mysterious dark matter
that's everywhere in the Universe, are the
invisible strings? Why also do supernovas (also spelt supernovae)-contribute
to refutation of evolutionary theory?
and meteorites have been the source of dust on the Moon. Dr. Harold Schlusser
said that the dust that is deposited on the Moon is doing so at the rate
of 14.3 million tons per year. After 4 to 5 billion years the layer on
the moon would have been extremely deep. So the NASA scientists constructed
the lunar lander to be able to land on that blanket of dust without sinking
through it, by equipping it with huge feet. When Neil Armstrong set foot
on the Moon, everyone at NASA was amazed that there were only 3 inches
of dust. They couldn't explain why. But 3 inches comes much closer to the
biblical/creation view of our existence, the remaking
of the Earth and systems affecting it for man's habitation. 3 inches
equates to about 7,000–9,000 years.
is sure if planets are the result of condensation of fragments of nebula,
or are built up by accumulation of smaller particles, or put there as designed
moon always keeps its back from us. The moon's same side always faces Earth.
It revolves once on its axis-(the
same time it takes to complete one orbit of Earth) every 27 days, 7 hours,
43 minutes and 11 seconds.
The Moon travels
2,287 miles each hour. Its diameter is 2,162 miles.
The moon is
moving away at 2 inches a year. Is that why it seems smaller when high
in the sky, as compared to just over the horizon? No. That's just our perception.
Objects closer to land seem larger. The moon's always the same size and
distance from us. What is causing it to move away, as the gravity of the
Earth should tend to pull it toward Earth?
believe that this could be because of the Kuiper Belt, a frozen realm of
comet like objects (KBOs for Kuiper belt objects), more of debris (approximately
100,000 icy 'minor planets', ranging between 100 and 1,000 kilometers in
diameter and an even greater number of smaller ones, occupying a region
extending from Neptune's orbit, further
out into space by about twice the amount of Neptune's distance from the
Sun), orbiting the Sun beyond Neptune, thought to be because of the Plutinos,
which are an estimated 10,000 objects bigger than 62 miles (100 km) in
diameter with orbits similar to that of Pluto.
And what of the magnetic field the
moon has? How did it get that way? Science News,
101(22):346-347 (May 27), "Paul W. Gast of NASA's Manned Spacecraft Center
– "It would be much simpler to explain most of the things we understand
about the moon, if we could somehow dispose of this magnetic field....One
of the exciting things about this paradox or enigma
is (that) perhaps behind all of this is an explanation that none of us
are thinking about today."-...continues
