Even though I’ve seen this a few times already, this documentary never ceases to amaze me. The power of God is displayed in the smallest of atoms and His glory is revealed from the flower to the vast expense of the cosmos.
He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted. Job 5:9

At some point in every kids life, when asked what they’d want to do, they would respond with travelling to space, to travel to Mars or the moon.

Many people ask me why I love flying and I tell them that it gives you a perspective of how big this planet is, yet how small and insignificant it is compared to an infinite universe.

Yes I do believe in God and yes you can refer to me as a creationist yada yada yada. Anyway, that could be a future post, my navigating of the universe is a bit off course.
Lets move on to some background Physics. First the two most notable men in Physics, Albert Einstein and Galileo. We start off with Galileo and his relativity theory. Galileo posed a simple idea that you need another reference point to judge velocity. The frame of reference that describes space and time. But Einstein had other plans, he generalised the Galilean invariance. He released postulates that state that the laws of physics are the same and that the velocity of light is independent of the motion. This video breaks it down into simpler terms. It uses the train analogy as an example and I advice you to watch because the next paragraph will be based on the video. Continue reading →
