---habemus Papam, the Pope is Catholic, Royals, the "new" NASA, Relativity is 100, Titan musings 

Ratzinger selected as new Pope:
I stepped away from the Fox News ChimneyCam for just a minute….

“Talk-Show Host Fired Over Pope Question”:
The host was apparently fired for letting a question be asked. The incident was treated as a denominational dispute, a disagreement within the family of Christian faith. This is not true. Doctrines, such as Catholicism, Mormonism, Adventism, and others, which espouse other means or requirements for Salvation and admission to the Father’s Presence than those taught by Jesus are not legitimate Christian theologies. It doesn’t matter how long the deviance has been taught, or to how many people. If it isn’t the Truth in Jesus Christ, it isn’t.

“NASA’s new chief takes on tough decision”

“But the launch decision is ultimately NASA’s, regardless of what the task force concludes, he said. ”
About a week and a half with the new administrator, and I’m already grinding my teeth together involuntarily.

“Einstein’s revolution enters second century ”
And about ten years ago, we just about had the basics of how the Universe works figured out. And then the Unknown happened---again.

This week's wierdest place in the Solar System:
A tar-covered snowball with methane rivers:
Considering the number of ways the Huygens probe could have failed, these pictures are especially amazing:
So now we know of yet another place in the Universe that looks like the parking lot of a West Texas Dairy Queen....

Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked I will depart.
The LORD gave and the LORD has taken away; may the Name of the LORD be praised.

Job 1:21
