  • Massive flares erupt from largest sunspot in 25 years

    A massive solar eruption on 26 October was the sixth large flare since 19 October, all emanating from one gigantic sunspot called AR 12192. Measuring 129,000 kilometres across, it’s the largest sunspot since 1990. For comparison, that’s a spot 10 … Continue reading

  • Rare comet flies by Mars at 203,000kph

    Comet Siding Spring passed just 140,000km from Mars on Oct 19, less than half the distance between Earth and the moon and 10 times closer than any known comet that has passed by Earth, says NASA. During its closest approach … Continue reading

  • Planck Satellite Fails to Confirm Big Bang

    During a high profile news conference in March 2014, the BICEP2 radio astronomy team announced purported direct evidence for inflation— an important part of the modern Big Bang model. In Big Bang cosmology, inflation is a hypothesized “growth spurt” in … Continue reading

  • NASA pours $50M into research on the origins of life

  • Pluto To Regain Its Planetary Status?

    It appears the debate is hotting-up again and that Pluto may return to its status as the ninth planet. One thing for sure, My “Pluto 1830-2006, (R)evolve (I)n (P)eace” T-shirt is destined to a holding pattern in my closet while … Continue reading

  • Study: Water on Earth is older than sun

    Half of the water on Earth may be a million years older than the solar system, according to a new study. The water came from interstellar ice in the molecular cloud that gave birth to the sun and planets in … Continue reading

  • Physicist: There’s no such thing as black holes

    Black holes are thought to form when massive stars collapse in on themselves and create gravitational vacuums from which even light cannot escape. However, if a collapsing star were to lose too much mass during its destruction, it would no … Continue reading

  • Big Bang Fizzles under Lithium Test

    Secular astrophysicists often talk about “primordial nucleosynthesis” as though it were a historical event like Washington crossing the Delaware. In theory, it describes how certain conditions—not God’s handiwork—during an early Big Bang universe somehow cobbled together the first elements. However, … Continue reading

  • MAVEN space probe to reach Mars this weekend

    After a 10-month, 442-million-mile-long interplanetary journey, MAVEN, one of NASA’s newest space probes, will take a bit of respite. No, MAVEN isn’t being decommissioned. But on Sunday, the spacecraft will be inserted into Martian orbit, and to some extent gravity … Continue reading

  • Strong Solar Storm Expected to Hit Earth

    It’s storming outside — but we’re not talking about thunder and rain. The energy from two back-to-back coronal mass ejections hit Earth today as expected, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Coronal mass ejections are bursts of radiation … Continue reading

  • NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft passes orbit of Neptune

    On its way to an encounter with the dwarf planet Pluto, the NASA New Horizons spacecraft has passed its last major milestone (Neptune’s orbit) before its prime mission, to explore Pluto, the former ninth planet of our solar system, and … Continue reading

  • Tension, not extension in creation cosmology

    For a considerable period of time modern biblical creationists as well as non-biblical creationists, like the progressive creationists (with an old earth/big-bang-embracing worldview) have used many biblical texts to argue that Scripture supports cosmological expansion of the universe. In 2011 … Continue reading

  • Solar System Geysers–Each a Fountain of Youth

    A sticky problem for nature-only origins just got 100 times worse. When discovered about ten years ago, a remarkable plume of water ice ejected from Enceladus, an icy moon in Saturn’s E ring, left secular notions of the moon’s origin … Continue reading

  • Surprised scientists come up dry in search for water

    Astronomers tried to find water on three planets circling sun-like stars. Instead, they found a cliche: the search for water, using NASA’s Hubble telescope, has “come up nearly dry.” That’s surprising, according to the researchers, who checked their results against … Continue reading

  • Secular scientists support what the Bible says about creation

    by Dennis Marcellino Did a God cause this Universe to come into being? And was that done in six literal 24-hour days as the Bible says? In spite of the mocking in the culture by comedians and political TV shows, … Continue reading

  • Was the Big Bang Just Proven by Astronomers?

    “Theory No More? Scientists Make ‘Big Bang’ Breakthrough with Find” (2014, emp. added). “Space Ripples Reveal Big Bang’s Smoking Gun” (Overbye, 2014, emp. added). “Big Bang’s ‘Smoking Gun’ Confirms Early Universe’s Exponential Growth” (Vergano, 2014, emp. added). “Scientists Find Cosmic … Continue reading
