Things That Go Boom


Astronomers have been gushing with excitement over the star, SN2006gy. What makes this star special is that it made an exceptionally large boom, making it the largest supernova ever observed. I love explosions, they make life interesting. If I weren't called to be a pastor, I'd be a demolitions expert.

I heard about this on NPR this morning. They were talking about how one of these could happen in our galaxy and if it did you could read by its light at night. Then I thought to myself, "Wow, then I call up all my rapture believing friends and says 'Hah! See? You didn't go either!'"
