Space Men Guessing: Will Comet ISON Make It Near Earth?

Comet_020613-617x416    Space scientists have no idea whether or not Comet ISON survived its brush with the sun in the last few days.  Although they surmise ISON comes from the outer edge of earth’s solar system, they fear it would disintegrate when coming within 730,000 miles from the sun’s surface where heat is 5,000F degrees.

So scientists are either waiting to finally declare funeral rights for the comet or to celebrate its survival. But most expect to celebrate! Karl Battams, comet scientists at the Naval Research Laboratory tells Amanda Barnett of CNN News:

“It now looks like some chunk of ISON’s nucleus has indeed made it through the solar corona, and re-emerged . . . It’s throwing off dust and gas. . . but we don’t know how long it can sustain that.  Now it has emerged and started to brighten, we need to observe it for a few days to get a feel for its behavior.”

Everyone seems to be looking to see if the comet is still ‘alive,’ even professional ‘space travelers.’  Battams says:  “A fleet of spacecraft watched ISON plunge toward the sun, including NASA’s STEREO satellite, the European Space Agency/NASA SOHO spacecraft and the Solar Dynamics Observatory.”  Hmm.  So the U.S. spends billions on space flights to observe hunks of flying rocks?

In ‘Did Comet ISON Survive?  Scientists see Tiny Hope’ Karl Ritter speaks to astronomer Alan Fitzsimmons who Comet_ison_Dec1_17_800pxexpresses hope after ISON touched near the sun:  “It certainly appears as if there is an object there that is emitting material.”

Space scientists describe comets as miles wide snowballs of frozen rocks, dust and gases gases.  The sun’s heat warms the particles, they shoot out tails thousands of miles long.  And apparently it makes quite an exciting site for some.

ISON is named after the International Scientific Optical Network (ISON) where its discoverers––amateur Russian astronomers Vitali Nevski and Artyom Novichonok––worked when they discovered the comet in September of last year.’a Mike Wall claims:  1) ISON is now the comet of the century; 2) That it may shine as bright as the moon in the next few days; 3) Even if it will be seen, the comet will miss earth by 40 million miles; 4) ISON flung past Mars, the Red Planet, in October and may have been seen by NASA’s Curiosity Rover there.
So we spend billions more to shot a machine up to Mars so it can see dead rocks?

Please ask Jael to call Cecil Certified!  I can’t take any more of this insanity.  The whole world is excited about a giant fiery rock with tails flying through the sky?  And the U.S. government spends billions of dollars going into space, but doesn’t want to feed hungry children, or help support their working parents?

Wait till they see The LORD Jesus, The Son of Man, coming to judge the earth.  And He will rule it forever.  Now that’s something to get ready for.  Till then, governments must stop wasting time and money to see things in the skies.

Unless they go as planet rulers for God, men will never spend their lives in space.  As the prophet Amos cries in wholesale Christian Bibles:  “Seek Him that maketh the seven stars and Orion, and turneth the shadow of death into the morning, and maketh the day dark with night: that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD is His name (5: 8).”
