The Allure of a Universe

The BBC site is a near-daily visit for me. But fascinating is the consistent popularity of astronomy news. These news items frequently appear on the BBC’s sidebar, “Most Popular In News.”

Today it was a distant newly-discovered galaxy churning out stars 13-plus billion years ago.

Last week it was diamond rain on Jupiter and Saturn.

God emboldened and inspired the patriarch:

Look toward heaven and count the stars, if you are able to count them. So shall your descendants be. (Gen 15:5)

Some eons in the future, we will be living among the stars.
