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.
