Meditating on the Universe

GALLERY OF DRAMATIC HUBBLE SPACE PHOTOS. (Set in verses In praise of the Creator of the Universe.)

NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, named after astronomer Edwin Hubble, was launched into Earth’s low orbit in 1990, one of the largest and most versatile among pioneer space telescopes of that era. It was a giant leap in astronomical reaserch because it took dramatic high-resolution photographs of galaxies and nebulas never before recorded done on such a large scale. Whereas earlier space photographs from the largest and most sophisticated ground observatories were blurred by the atmosphere, Hubble rendered photos with amazing clarity and detail. To-date, it has not stopped taking photos. Many of its photos triggered breakthroughs in pioneer researches in astrophysics, especially in determining the rate of expansion of the Universe from ground zero of the s0-called ‘big bang’. (search for The Big Bang Theory’ in this blogsite. (Wikipedia.)

At the center of every galaxy is a super-blackhole whose gravity is so immense that it controls trillions of orbiting stars. Lord, you are the blackhole, we are your stars.

“A supercluster is a large group of smaller galaxy clusters or galaxy groups;[1] they are among the largest known structures in the universe. The Milky Way is part of the Local Group galaxy group (which contains more than 54 galaxies), which in turn is part of the Virgo Supercluster, which is part of the Laniakea Supercluster.[2] The large size and low density of superclusters means that they, unlike clusters, expand with the Hubble expansion. The number of superclusters in the observable universe is estimated to be 10 million.[3] ” (Wikipedia.)
