The Master Craftsman: New Planetary Systems and New Planets
(Feb 21) Researchers at the Harvard-Smithsonian Centre for Astrophysics said they have identified an entirely new kind of planet, dominated not by rock, gas or other common materials, but water. “GJ1214 is a waterworld enshrouded by a thick, steamy atmosphere, it is like no planet we know of”, they said in a statement, after scrutinising the planet with NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope.

(Jan 26) NASA announces 11 new planetary systems hosting 26 cnfirmed plnets. NASA’s Kepler mission’s recent discoveries nearly double the number of verified Kepler planets and triple the number of stars known to have more than one planet that transits, or passes in front of, the star. Such systems will help astronomers better understand how planets form. (Source)
(Dec 5) A possible Earth twin has been confirmed orbiting a sunlike star 600 light-years away—and the new planet may be in just the right spot for supporting life. Discovered by the Kepler space mission, the new planet—dubbed Kepler-22b—is the first world smaller than Neptune to be found in middle of its star’s habitable zone. Also called the Goldilocks zone, the habitable zone is the region around a star where a planet’s surface is not too hot and not too cold for liquid water—and thus life as we know it—to exist.

(Oct 2011) Astronomers have captured the first direct image of a planet being born. Adam Kraus, of the University of Hawaii’s Institute for Astronomy, said the planet is being formed out of dust and gas circling a 2-milion-year-old star about 450 light years from Earth. The planet itself, based on scientific models of how planets form, is estimated to have started taking shape about 50,000 to 100,000 years ago. Called LkCa 15 b, it’s the youngest planet ever observed. The previous record holder was about five times older. (Source)
Do you know who is the Master Craftsman? The Word Michael who became Christ Jesus, created everything in our reality except himself. He served as a craftsman of Yahweh and had to be taught his trade. He was the start of Yahweh’s works that carried on Her works to completion. He is still serving as a worker in that capacity. So he is the one forming these planets out of dust, just as how we are made of dust.
Why are so many planets being made? Because Yahweh’s Divine PLAN is to populate all of creation on an ongoing cycle as the Holy Family procreates and continues to expand throughout eternity. Space is reserved with its planets for Yahweh’s remnant that proves faithful in the final test, at the end of the Millennium. Many of these planets are already inhabited by intelligent beings but others remain to be explored.
If you slowly put the puzzle pieces together, your eyes will be opened to the true meaning of the Psalms of Praise offered to our Most High God. Psalm 150:1-2 “Praise the LORD 1 Hallelujah! Praise God in His sanctuary. Praise Him in His mighty heavens. Praise Him for His powerful acts; praise Him for His abundant greatness.”
