An Update on the ALMA Observatory’s Search for Cosmic Origins

by Max Andrews

The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) is a revolutionary instrument in its scientific concept, its engineering design, and its organization as a global scientific endeavor…

Currently under construction in the thin, dry air of northern Chile’s Atacama desert at an altitude of 5,000 meters above sea level, ALMA will initially be composed of 66 high-precision antennas working together at millimeter and submillimeter wavelengths, with a possible extension in the future.

Thanks to its high resolution and sensitivity, ALMA will open an entirely new “window” on the Universe, allowing scientists to unravel longstanding and important astronomical mysteries, in search of our Cosmic Origins.

Some people say that the sun never sets on ALMA. Indeed, ALMA is a wonderful example of a worldwide collaboration , involving partners from four continents. By working together, scientists and engineers from around the world tackle unprecedented challenges and will seek to expand the frontiers of knowledge.

Chuck Norris Endorses William Lane Craig and Lee Strobel

by Max Andrews

Reblogged from Chuck Norris.

[F]or too many years I was in rebellion to God.  Now I’m a rebel with a cause for God and for grass-roots America.

I no longer fit the mold.  I’m not a liberal actor from Hollywood.  I’m not politically correct, in my opinions or my practice.  And though I’m concerned with what people think, I will not compromise the truth in any form to cater to others, even with religion and politics.

Those who would merely brand me on ”the right” are oversimplifying and running from the real issue.  I’m not the issue!  None of us are.  Jesus is, especially during Christmas.

And the question He asked the people of His day still needs to be answered by those in ours: ”Who do people say that I am?”
