Look at this beautiful picture, entitled “Massive Stars in Open Cluster Pismis 24.” It is featured as “Astronomy Picture of the Day” on the December 19, 2006, entry by NASA. I am amazed by the breathtaking beauty of the universe, which displays God’s glory and his masterful design.
According to NASA’s photography archive web site, most of the pictures are not copyrighted, and people are welcome to feature them on personal web sites. The caption says, “Each day a different image or photograph of our fascinating universe is featured, along with a brief explanation written by a professional astronomer.” Each discussion has several links to other features.
In a December Guideposts article, Dr. Francis Collins says that “the mysteries of science point toward God.” He is discussing the intricacy of the structure of the DNA molecule, but he says that God is at “the heart of science,” and whether “we venture to the edge of the universe or plumb the depths of inner space, we glimpse the pageant of his creation.”
