NEW ORLEANS (Gazette) — I had never heard of the word exoplanet until Sunday, December 8, 2013. The exact definition is at the link above; but, basically, it is a planet which revolves around a star other than our sun. The Hubble Telescope has discovered exoplanets with water. It is so amazing to me that planets exist in other solar systems which have life forms. Scientists say that these newly discovered exoplanets circle too closely to their sun to maintain life. I am not a scientist, but doesn’t water contain life? Doesn’t water contain millions of micro-organisms? This makes me think that there has to be a greater power other than us who controls all of this. If water exists hundreds of light-years and trillions of miles away on other planets, I do not think from deep within my spirit that it is all just happenstance. I thank the good Lord that I discovered this information today; and that it seems to reveal to me addition, precious, spiritual gems of knowledge that increase my faith.
Here is a picture of another “planet” (or what-you-may-call-her) that I would truly like to search and discover :). I could not help myself. I just had to compliment this lovely of lovelies. This is a picture of actress Christina Milian. I’m only being light-hearted here for a moment. I enjoy the pictures and posts that Christina puts up.
Back to exoplanets, the Hubble Space Telescope has also discovered another distant alien planet which has Astronomers totally puzzled because according to all understood theories of planetary formation this planet should not even exist. Contrary to all theories of planetary formation, this planet orbits its Sun-like star improbably and non-theoretically at 650 times the distance that the Earth circles our Sun. This system lies 300 light-years away in the southern constellation of Crux.
Something else that I do understand and know a little bit about are my picks for today’s games. I will not expose my picks here; however, I list the choices that I have. I made my picks for my personal pleasure. I just wish that I knew how to put down a few dollars per the Internet on my picks. I am talking small change in order to make the games fun. I am not knowledgable enough or advanced enough to know how to do such on the Internet. I have searched, but to no avail. The only sites that I have found allow only wagers of larger sums. I just want to make today’s games fun by having them count for a little something.
