Pluto Coming Into Focus

It’s been 9.5 years flight through space that New Horizons has flown to Pluto. Through flying by the planet they have successfully captured its view of it by New Horizons. They have detected the planet’s atmosphere, which is nitrogen. New Horizons has confirmed the existence of a polar cap on its planet. It consists mostly of methane and nitrogen ices. In a few hours there will be the most important close-encounter of observations by downlink of NASA. The pace of discoveries by New Horizons will quicken over the next few days once it flies past the distant world.

My Point of View on Astronomy and God

Most scientists say to understand God is to understand and know astronomy. We go into the deep cores of him. I always love astronomy. I think this view is correct. I know that some other people don’t agree with this, but it is very hard to understand astronomy. You have to read many astronomy books, study it, and watch many astronomy shows and movies. Some will tell me that this is the wrong answer, but it is the correct one. If most scientists say it is this way, then they are correct. God is science and astronomy. No matter how ridiculous it sounds to some. It doesn’t to me.

Watching the Moon

I used to have a telescope. My parents gave it to me for Christmas a long time ago. I never knew how to work with it fully. I understood some things how I could use it. I never understood the alignments I needed to use it for. Anyway, I saw the moon many times. It was the only thing I could watch, except for the stars. My neighborhood was full of lights and there was no clearance to see the universe. To see everything in the night sky you need to go somewhere where there is no neighborhood and have chances to see all things in space. But, the moon was beautiful to watch. You could see the craters and how close it is from us. I showed the moon to my family looking in the telescope. So, the stars and the moon were the only things I could watch. Sadly, I left the telescope outside by mistake during hurricane season and the hurricane blew it away destroying it. Me and my dad threw it away. But, it was fun watching the moon.

We Don’t Really Know The Universe’s Age

Most scientists tell us how old the universe is. In fact there are many universes. The age projection of the universes by scientists are just theories. Don’t worry how old our universe is. Of course, the big bang started it all. We think we know how old it is, but it is only speculations. They measure the universe in a different way we don’t know how. I think it is better to enjoy its beauty. The fact is I am warning you not to go to space without an astronaut suit. Sure it is pretty, but it is also deadly. Humans without a suit in space can die for hours, or even for three days to happen. Anyway you look at it you won’t last. We assume how old it is, but it is better to view it, or reading of it. There are so many interesting theories about it. So, don’t come out telling people how old it is, because all of us don’t really know.

What I Am Reading 2…

This year I am reading The Hunger Games: Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins, The Godfather by Mario Puzo, and an astronomy book called Before The Big Bang by Brian Clegg. I am in the middle of the novel of Mockingjay. I am starting to wonder at first if Katniss Everdeen will ever survive against The Capitol? Is she going to live or die? Are Katniss and Peeta love interests? Will The Capitol ever be conquered? These are my top concerns. Please don’t spoil it by telling me, because I want to know when I’m finished reading it. The Godfather I already know what happens throughout the novel. I am throughout the middle and reading it the second time. The book Before The Big Bang is about what was there before the big bang started. I am also reading The Shining by Stephen King… and of course writing reference books.

Major Milestone In The Search For Water On Distant Planets

Neptune-sized planet crosses in front of its star in the constellation Cygnus. Astronomers have found the blue part of the planet’s rim due to scattered light. The planet is 4 times bigger than the Earth. What they found in it is water vapor and hydrogen in the atmosphere of an exoplanet HAT P-11b. This planet could sustain life.
