'Hand of God' captured by Nasa observatory - Telegraph
This beautiful image of a "cosmic hand" reaching for the stars has been captured by a Nasa observatory

'Hand of God' captured by Nasa observatory
The X-ray image was recorded by Nasa's Chandra observatory which is circling 360 miles above

What appears, with a little imagination, to be the outstretched fingers were created by a spinning neutron star known as a pulsar buried deep inside the fist, which releases energy as it rotates.

Although the pulsar itself is only 12 miles in diameter, the cloud or nebula that it produces stretches across 150 light years of space.

The X-ray image was recorded by Nasa's Chandra observatory which is circling 360 miles above Earth taking images of high-energy locations across the universe, such as the remnants of exploded stars.

Dubbed the Hand of God, following on from an 'Eye of God' image released by European astronomers in February, the nebula pictured in the new X-ray was produced by the pulsar B1509, which is about 17,000 light years away.

Neutron stars are created when standard stars run out of fuel and collapse, and Nasa believes that the one pictured is rotating around seven times a second.

The golden-red lights in the image are actually part of a neighbouring gas cloud, which has been energised by the wind of electrons and ions being spewed out from the pulsar.

The colours of the image represent different energy intensities the blue lights are the areas of highest energy X-rays, followed by green and then red.
Why call it the Hand of God? Why not call it the hand of Hercules or Zeus? A myth is a myth, don't ya think?

HubbleSite - NewsCenter - By Popular Demand: Hubble Observes the Horsehead Nebula (04/24/2001) - Introduction
April 24, 2001: Rising from a sea of dust and gas like a giant seahorse, the Horsehead nebula is one of the most photographed objects in the sky. The Hubble telescope took a close-up look at this heavenly icon, revealing the cloud's intricate structure. This detailed view of the horse's head is being released to celebrate the orbiting observatory's eleventh anniversary. Hubble was launched by the Space Shuttle Discovery on April 24, 1990 and deployed into a 360-mile-high Earth orbit on April 25. Produced by the Hubble Heritage Project, this picture is a testament to the Horsehead's popularity. Internet voters selected this object for the orbiting telescope to view.

The Constellations - Enchanted Learning Software
A constellation is a group of stars that, when seen from Earth, form a pattern. The stars in the sky are divided into 88 constellations.

The brightest constellation is Crux (the Southern Cross). The constellation with the greatest number of visible stars in it is Centaurus (the Centaur - with 101 stars). The largest constellation is Hydra (The Water Snake) which extends over 3.158% of the sky.

There are also asterisms, smaller apparent star patterns within a constellation, like the Big Dipper (in Ursa Major), the Little Dipper (in Ursa Minor), Keystone (in Hercules), and the Pleiades (in Taurus).
There are people who believe in greek mythology and the gods of the stars. I've known people that if they read a bad horoscope they will not even climb out of their beds.

And in reference to Horse Head Nebula as in philosophy (related to my college classroom) if a desk can be anything you want it to be....think about it.

The Big Bang, is "The Big Bang Theory" and theoretically speaking, it still leaves much to chance. Stars/planets are perfectly aligned one with the other within the universe, or they are thrown about with no rhyme or reason.

Which is it?

And when ye said: O Moses! You would not believe until we see Allah plainly gazed the lightning seized and you look (55)

Sura



After he repented God for the people of Moses, after the worship of the calf .. Returned again to their stubbornness and Madathm. Understand the material they want a god .. They see God, but God of his greatness that he is not aware of unseen eyes .. And read the verse:

Acquainted with knowing eyes, a gentle expert (103)


(Surat cattle)



The fact that God is above human understanding .. This greatness of the Almighty .. But the Jews who only believe in something physical sensor .. Does not expand their minds and their hearts to God Almighty over the article and above the eyes .. This view of the physical look stupid .. The Almighty God has called attention to the issue in public view in the world .. Saying the Almighty:

In ye see yourselves, not then (21)


(Al-Alone)



Any that God Almighty a guide to the summit and the existence of God, who is not aware of sight. Put this in the same directory each and every one of us. A spirit in the flesh .. And the human creature of the material breathed into the spirit Vdbt where life and movement and the sense of .. So everything in your body from the life of .. Is not due to the article you see before you .. But due to the spirit that can not be detected with only effects .. If the soul is gone and life became flesh Inviolability.
If this is the spirit in your body .. Which gives you life can not be aware they exist inside you with .. How do you want to be aware of God .. He must first ask God to make you aware of the spirit in your body .. But God said it was of the order of Allah .. Read the Almighty:

And they ask for the Spirit Say: The Spirit of the Lord is what Otteetm of science only slightly (85)


(Surat al-Isra ')



If this spirit is created by God can not be detected .. How the Creator desires to see .. And look at the accuracy of performance in the Quranic saying glorified. "Until we see Allah plainly" .. The word see the launch and intended to science. For example:

What do you think of God took the desires


(Verse 43 of Surat Al-Furqan)



Any informed .. But word came openly to deny all knowledge and demands a clear vision of being recognized Mjhorh Bhawwashm. This is evidence that they are committed to the materialism which is the strength of their lives .. We say to them that your question is stupid .. You can see when you ask Allah plainly. And supposed that God has blessed and exalted, meaning you have .. Therefore, ask to see the significance compare to existing .. That if the issue was originally to know that God exists or does not exist .. Which encouraged them to say what they said .. Moses asked of God to see. And read the verse:

Says the LORD said, Show me look at you will not see me, but look to the mountain, the place settled you will see me when he demonstrated his Lord of the mountain make Dhaka Moses fell down the accidental


(Verse 143 of Sura norms)



Must know that the issue of seeing God in this world felt .. And it does not matter to me that the man and the human body .. Because this body has laws in Aderakath .. But the Day of Resurrection, we have created different laws .. In this world must come out food waste from our bodies. In the Hereafter, not waste. In this world ruled by time .. In the afterlife is not the time. The human remains always young .. So there is a change .. Standards are not standards in the world Day of Resurrection prepare you and your body can not see God. In the Hereafter. You are now living in raising the power of God .. Living an existence in the Hereafter the beholder to the Almighty God .. At the right the Almighty says:

The interpretation of the meaning (22) to the headmistress of her Lord (23)


(Surat Resurrection)



And man in the world had invented a machine that enabled him to see what he can not see a particular sees things the naked minute microscope. And distant objects through a telescope .. If the work of man in this world made him what he sees is not seen. .. Let alone the power of God in the afterlife .. If a person is weakened when the view. Ask your doctor the use of glasses .. If he went to a doctor skilled .. Conducted an operation in the eye do without them for the glasses and see without them .. Let alone the right to prepare for the creation and the power of God that has no limits to re-create in the eye so that you can enjoy a decent face. The resolution of the Almighty God the matter with the Moses of the human inability to see him .. Because its power and tyranny of the mountain could not likely the light of God made him stand Dhaka .. And if God wanted Moses to understand .. That the Almighty God to withhold his vision of mercy. Because if this had happened to the mountain, what would have happened to Moses. If Moses had revealed shocked to see him .. So what if felt revealed? ..
And man When he can not understand anything in this world because it is a creature of this potential deficit is about perception Recognizing that disability is a perception in the greatness of God Almighty .. Moses and the people when they asked him to see Allah plainly see they were taken stun .. When this Ajtroa Alajtra on God took them stun .. The bolt either fire or torment comes down .. It is important that the scourge of Islam has .. The lightning had struck Moussa.

Neither. The expansion of the Universe and gravitational attraction take care of it. Planetary systems are on a much smaller scale than stellar groupings.

I know that this thread is over two years old, but ...

That should read, The Big Bang is explained by the Big Bang Theory.
