Tootsie and all,

Kepler telescope makes quick discovery :smile:

NASA's Kepler space telescope has already made a discovery, and its science operations aren't even officially under way yet.

NASA scientists who put the telescope through a 10-day test after its March 6 launch said this week that Kepler is working well. Its ability to detect minute changes in light has enabled scientists to determine that a planet orbiting a distant star has an atmosphere, shows only one side to its sun and is so hot it glows. :oops:

Kepler's ability to take measurements that precise at such a great distance "proves we can find Earth-size planets," William Borucki, Kepler's principal science investigator told reporters at a recent briefing.

The powerful scope is looking at thousands of stars in its vision field in the Milky Way on a 3½-year mission to find planets the size of Earth and to determine how common these planets are. :arrow:

Hey Tootsie,

Sorry to hear about your job situation. Sign of the times! This is one of those amazing roller-coaster times of human evolution… an exciting and amazing time to be alive! I’m not gonna give you any of that “everything happens for a reason” stuff, because the reasons things like this happen are more integrated into the ebb and flow of humanity than overseen by some special plan of divinity.

That being said, I’ll bet that you got a seraphic guardian or two which will ensure that some real opportunities for growth come your way during this time of turmoil. This could be the beginning of something new and exciting! What does the UB say about consciousness? That it rests upon the subconscious and below the super-conscious? You got the guide, inside, girl… I say, Go for it!

Al

Thanks Al for your support and empathy...yes, I was guided to Keck and looking back all my life. When I stay willing and pray for God's will and keep the faith...good things are sure to come. I pray...here are my hands God, give them work to do..shine the light brightly on my path so I shall not falter..Amen

Thanks again...
