What a Wonderful Universe

"In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth."
-Genesis 1:1

Scientists now know a little more about how little they know about the universe:
    Planet with Three Suns Challenges Theories

    Astronomers have detected a planet outside our solar system with not one, but three suns, a finding that challenges astronomers' theories of planetary formation.

    The planet, a gas giant slightly larger than Jupiter, orbits the main star of a triple-star system known as HD 188753 in the constellation Cygnus (The Swan)...

    ...The new finding could upset existing theories that planets usually form out of gas and dust circling a single star, and could lead scientists to look in new places for planets...

    ...The fact that a planet can even exist in a multiple-star system is amazing in itself...
Yet another example of the breathtaking wonder of God's creation.

What a Wonderful World

"Let heaven and earth praise him, the seas and everything that moves in them." -Psalm 69:34

I always enjoy reading stories like this:
    Deadly New Sea Creature Lures Fish with Red Lights

    For fish, the red light district is deeper and more dangerous than anyone imagined.

    A newfound deep-sea relative of the jellyfish flashes glowing red lights on twitching, stinging tentacles to lure fish to their deaths more than a mile below the surface.

    The discovery is odd, because scientists had figured deep-sea animals can't see red light, since they live where sunlight doesn't reach and therefore have no evolutionary reason to detect the color. ...
While scientists struggle to come up with an "evolutionary reason," I will remain content to simply be amazed by the seemingly endless complexity of God's creation and His sovereignty over all He has made. His glory can be seen in even the deepest, darkest depths of the ocean.

It is indeed a wonderful world in which we live!
