Its mass is estimated to be 6,,,, tons.
The distance from the earth to the moon ismiles; while the distance to the sun is 93, miles. The sun has a diameter ofmiles, and a masstimes that of the earth. Distances now become so great that we will find it so cumbersome to use the measure of a mile that it is necessary to construct a more practical unit which is called a light year.
Light travels at the speed ofmiles per second generally referred to as m. Page 42 The sun is eight light minutes away. A light year, then, means the distance light will travel in one year, or 5,, miles.
Our solar system has a diameter of light minutes; but the galaxy of which it is a very small part has a diameter oflight years! If in each of these thousand million galaxies there are, as astronomers believe,million stars, then in the entire universe there are some million million million ,,, stars.
On a clear night as many as 2, stars can be seen with the naked eye by a person standing at one spot. The total number of stars visible in the entire sky is estimated at about 6, By the one-inch telescope, somestars can be observed.
With the one-hundred-inch telescope about 1,, stars. However, with the two-hundred-inch telescope nearly one billion galaxies are brought within observation, which includes objects as far away as two billion light years. Very recently the frontiers of space have been pushed even farther back by Dr.
He has found five quasars, that is, quasi-stellar radio noise sources that are farther from the earth than any other known object.

There is no reason to believe that the universe is expanding since it is infinite. Only our ability to observe it is expanding. Thus I believe in a "young earth" and young universe, created with inherent age.
The concept of the age of our earth, as well as the age of the universe, has in our century undergone as great changes as conceptions of the size of this universe.
Hardly more than forty years ago, the age of our earth was estimated to be about one hundred million years. Thirty years ago this figure was extended from to million years.
It is now generally acknowledged that this earth is from 4. Within this very decade it was generally thought that life originated on the earth at least two billion years ago.This article will look at several Biblical foreshadows of the Rapture in Bible prophecy that show God's patter for protecting His believers.
