Outer Space is Deep, Astronomical, and Covers a Vast Distance


outer-spaceThe more I think about it, the more I realize that outer space is huge.  If you look up at the sky at night, you will see many stars (assuming it isn’t cloudy).  Each one of those stars in outer space can potentially have 1 or more planets around it.  Some semi-quick math tells you that even if there were only 1,000 stars in outer space (I am trying to utilize a realistic number), and each star had only 1 planet nearby, there are potentially 1,000 other planets in the entire universe!

For those of you who didn’t quite follow the math, here’s how I came up with 1,000 potential planets:

1,000 stars in the sky (I have verified that this is a realistic number of stars that exist because I have personally counted up to this number)

1 planet by each star (I tried to be conservative and assumed that each star only has 1 planet)

So,

1,000 (number of stars) X 1 (number of planets) = 1,000 potential planets!

With numbers that large, there’s a thought that can boggle your mind.

    True freedom comes from knowing the eternal God. get to know him for yourself by studying his holy words and when you’re filled with the Holy Spirit through your surrendering to Christ who is Captain of the mighty throng then and only then you will enjoy that which can only be agreed with as peace perfect peace which surpasses all understanding,joy full joy, and righteousness which can only comes from the Creator. He is your maker he is my maker he is our Maker.
