A PEEK AT THE UNIVERSE
In 2004, scientists pointed the Hubble telescope at a blank-looking patch of sky near the Orion Constellation. The Hubble stayed focused on that spot for 400 orbits over 11 days. The patch of sky they were looking at is no bigger than a grain of sand held out at armís length. And in that tiny patch of sky, they discovered over 10,000 galaxies!
Not too long ago, astronomers thought that there were 100 billion galaxies in the universe. Then the number jumped to 200 billion galaxies. Today scientists think that our universe may have as many as 500 billion galaxies.
-Each of those galaxies has hundreds of millions of stars.
-And Jesus made them all!
(From a sermon by Rick Crandall, Take Lifeís Journey with the Lord, 5/9/2012)
