Our Universe

January 8, 2008

“When you look into a large telescope, the reality of the cosmic web hits you in the face because you can see how galaxies are organized,” said Rodrigo Ibata, an astronomer at the Observatoire Astronomique de Strasbourg in France. “We have clear evidence for the cosmic web’s existence, but there is still so much we don’t know about it.”

Ibata explained that the cosmic web filaments are held together by dark matter, unseen stuff that makes up 85% of all mass in the universe.

I only wish my desk would organize itself in such a fearful and awesome way.

    “Our God is so big, so strong and so mighty, there’s nothing our God cannot do!”

    I know what the 85% is…

    I’m sitting here reading this in the midst of a very cluttered desk. It would take divine intervention to organize this mess. But I guess a cluttered desk just means we’re working–right?
