Science: Astronomy


I (Sal) have been fascinated with Astronomy since I can remember? I remember taking a class back in high school, where I was fascinated and eager of the homework that was given-to go outside and look at the stars.

Below are pictures taken from a Federal Government Exhibition: NASA at the Mall of America on Saturday, January 29th of 2005

Have you ever wonder where "God speed" originated from? The first time I heard this was through those "outer space" movies (e.g. Armageddon, Apollo 13) and I hear it in other forms.

  • Pluto has been voted off the island.
    ""Whoa! Pluto's dead," said astronomer Mike Brown, of the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, as he watched a Webcast of the vote. "There are finally, officially, eight planets in the solar system."
    In a move that's already generating controversy and will force textbooks to be rewritten, Pluto will now be dubbed a dwarf planet.
    But it's no longer part of an exclusive club, since there are more than 40 of these dwarfs, including the large asteroid Ceres and 2003 UB313, nicknamed Xena�a distant object slightly larger than Pluto discovered by Brown last year.
    "We know of 44" dwarf planets so far, Brown said. "We will find hundreds. It's a very huge category."
    A clear majority of researchers voted for the new definition at a meeting of the International Astronomical Union (IAU) in Prague, in the Czech Republic. The IAU decides the official names of all celestial bodies.
    The tough decision comes after a multiyear search for a scientific definition of the word "planet." The term never had an official meaning before. ...

  • Perry preached a sermon about the relation between comets and significant events concerning Israel. For example, the comet Hale Bopp that occured in 1997 occurred during the worst flooding for our planet (e.g. Red River flood, which I saw the moon turn red during my trip to Grand Forks). Astronomers calculated that the last time this come pass our planet was during the "Great Flood" when Noah built the famous Ark.

    "The Holy Scriptures state in no uncertain terms that this Earth is to be hit with an asteroid from outer space. That's right. All of us should want to know about this prophesied event. That is the reason for this new Prophetic Report. I want to give you what the Holy Scriptures reveal in detail.." Important Dates in the Lives of Jesus and Mary by Ronald L.

    "4. Virgin Birth of Jesus Christ - presents two separate arguments that Christ was born in 15 BC; gives the date of Christ's Birth as Nov. 25, 15 BC; evidence for the year of the Birth of Christ includes microletters from the Lapis Venetus; identifies the Christmas star as a comet mentioned by the ancient Roman historian Cassius Dio.
