Stargazing - 08.24.12

Antares, the heart of the scorpion, is just below the Moon at nightfall.

And bright orange star is a supergiant, which means it is far larger and more massive than the Sun.

It most likely will end its life with a titan explosion known as a supernova.


Dawn III

The Dawn spacecraft isn’t exactly a speedster. With its engines operating at maximum thrust, it would take about four days for the craft to accelerate from zero to 60. But what it lacks in horsepower, it makes up for in stamina — the engines can operate for years at a time, giving Dawn quite a push.

They’re about to push the craft away from its first target and toward the second, where it’ll arrive in early 2015.

Dawn has been orbiting the asteroid Vesta for the last year. It’s found that although Vesta’s only a few hundred miles in diameter, it’s put together like a planet, with layers of heavier material as you bore toward the center. Dawn also confirmed that several types of meteorites on Earth actually came from Vesta.

Now the craft is ready to head for the largest asteroid, Ceres. It’s about twice the diameter of Vesta. And unlike Vesta, which is quite dry, there’s some evidence that liquid water could lurk below the surface of Ceres. One of Dawn’s prime objectives is to look for that water.

To reach Ceres, Dawn will rely on three ion thrusters. Electricity from two large solar panels gives an electric charge to the craft’s xenon fuel. The thrusters then shoot out a stream of xenon ions — generating up to a third of an ounce of thrust.

If the thrusters do their job correctly, they’ll help put Dawn in the space history books — as the first craft ever to orbit two separate bodies in the solar system other than Earth.

G-MM™: Meditation Moment - 08.24.12

The Lord is near to all who call upon him; call upon him in truth.

The psalm for today leads into the beautiful story of the first meeting between Jesus and the man we now identify as the apostle Bartholomew.

Jesus calls him an Israelite in whom there is no deceit.

In other words he compliments this new acquaintance on being in a right relationship with God who is near to all who call upon him in truth.

Throughout the gospels, it is asserted in many ways that the mystery of God’s being will be opened up to those who are pure to their God-given role in life. Let us pray for the kind of integrity that Jesus saw in Bartholomew so that the God who is love will permeate the deepest recesses of our being.


Apocalypse 21:9–14. Your friends tell the glory of your kingship, Lord—Ps 144(145):10–13, 17–18. John 1:45–51.
