HOW GREAT THOU ART

Since Star Trek has not yet become a reality, we must ride the bold spaceship of our imagination and view the wonders of the universe through pictures taken by telescopes. Thanks to Hubble and others, we can emulate Captain Picard and say, "Let's see what's out there." Glories and Wonders! How great Thou art!
  • Mad is the Captain of Alpha Centauri; We must be out of our minds. Still we are shipmates bound for tomorrow, and everyone here's flying blind. Mad is the crew bound for Alpha Centauri, Dreamers and poets and clowns. Bold is the crew bound for Alpha Centauri; nothing can turn it around. Oh, we must believe in magic; we must believe in the guiding hand. If you believe in magic, you'll have the universe at your command. Artist:Crystal Gayle; album UNKNOWN @LyricsandSongs.com

    Coldest Place in Solar System


    http://news.rediff.com/report/2009/sep/28/moon-not-pluto-the-coldest-in-solar-system.htm


    Dark craters near Moon's [ Images ] south pole may be the coldest place in the entire solar system, frostier than planet Pluto. The crater floors which are 239,000 miles down, have 'daytime' temperatures that never rise above minus 400 degrees Fahrenheit, according to preliminary results from NASA's [ Images ] Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter.

    The super-cold temperatures are chilly enough to have preserved ice for billions of years in the craters, according to NASA scientists.

    "This is an exciting time for LRO," Richard Vondrak, who heads the solar-system exploration division at the Goddard Space Flight Institute in Greenbelt was quoted by Christian Science Monitor.

    The data released said that the thermal measurements showed daytime temperature over much of the Moon's surface reach 220 degree Fahrenheit, which is hotter than boiling water before plummeting to frigidness at night.

    While, the temperatures in the dark craters which never saw sunlight remained below minus 400 degrees Fahrenheit making them solar system's coldest areas.

    Pluto is currently considered the coldest planet with minimum temperature ranging fron minus 391 to minus 346 degree Fahrenheit.

    Launched in June, the orbiter on a one year mission officially began its mapping mission last week, orbiting the Moon some 30 miles above the surface.
