When Galaxies collide


Psalm 8 "3 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,

4 what are mere mortals that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?"

The BBC today are hosting a video of images from the 18 year old Hubble Telescope of galaxies colliding.

You can read, listen, and watch videos and images, and explanations of the mind-boggling nature of these collisions at the Hubble's own web site.

With on average 500,000 Million stars in our Galaxy alone, and an estimated 100 Billion galaxies in the universe, that's 70 sextillion or 7 × 1022, stars in the universe (70 thousand million million million).

So if your looking for inspiration and something to reflect on, try listening to Thomas Tallis's, Spem in Alium, whilst watching the hubble video, and consider our place in the order of creation.

'When Galaxies Collide' would make such a cool book title.
