The Joys of Discoveries In A Young Solar System

In the vast and cold region of the solar system lies a dwarf Planet called “Pluto.” Some scientists have claimed it was dead, frozen out for many millions upon millions of years. New Horizons was a mission that was supposed to shed light on the origin of the solar system but instead has discovered some very young characteristics from the dwarf planet which complies a vast wealth of complexity within the old age framework.

Sand dunes are usually found in deserts where the wind blows the same around making some cool hills and more. Most wouldn’t think of sand dunes being present on Pluto. Even yours truly wouldn’t have thought of that even though it was predicted that young activity would be discovered on Pluto and beyond. That is exactly what New Horizons discovered as it flew by Pluto. 

Pluto's Sand Dunes

In Nature…“Dramatic dunes of methane sweep across part of Pluto. The discovery shows that the dwarf planet’s atmosphere, although thin, can still generate winds powerful enough to blow particles across the surface.”

“The dunes probably formed in the past 500,000 years — which means Pluto is a geologically active world.”

This presents a major problem for planetary evolutionists who believe in billions of years. Because if these winds have been active for many millions upon millions of years, wouldn’t the process eventually stop? Scientists believe Pluto’s atmosphere is escaping.

In Science, they speculate on an answer…“The methane grains could have been lofted into the atmosphere by the melting of surrounding nitrogen ice or blown down from nearby mountains. Understanding how dunes form under Pluto conditions will help with interpreting similar features found elsewhere in the solar system.”

 Young solar systems are active and old ones are not active because eventually, they lose energy and freeze out especially being so far away from the sun! It would be really cool if someday we could land a robot on Pluto (similar to that of Mars) which would be able to study the surface in much more detail. How many more surprises concerning Pluto’s activity would be discovered? My guess, quite a few more! 

Ceres as seen by DAWN

New Horizons is not done yet, on January 2019, the spacecraft is set to encounter another Kuiper belt object which again is believed to be composed largely of frozen volatiles like methane and water. My prediction, this objective will reveal some youthful surprise! Don’t forget that the spacecraft Dawn has flown down to it’s the closest point of Ceres and is now collecting data to be later transmitted back to Earth.  We are living in some of the most exciting times when it comes to space exploration!

The Joys of a Youthful Dwarf Planet

When a woman is pregnant she can feel the energy of the child from the womb when born and growing up, children display a lot of energy because of their youth. In space exploration, we can expect to see an active solar system because it’s not billions of years old. If the solar system was billions of years old, activity on Pluto, for example, would be completely dead by now. 

Back in 2007, the Dawn space probe was launched by NASA with a mission to study three dwarf planets but later on, NASA decided to narrow it down to just two. Since then, the mission has completely contradicted billions of years old which have shocked some planetary scientists who are working on the mission. 

“Changes in the abundance of water ice on a short timescale, as well as the presence of hydrated sodium carbonates, are further evidence that Ceres is a geologically and chemically active body,” said Cristina De Sanctis, VIR team leader at the Institute of Astrophysics and Planetary Science.” 

Ceres Dwarf Planet

What scientists have discovered was rapid geological changes and these rapid geological changes did not happen 100 years ago, nor 5 years ago nor 1 year ago, rather the space probe was able to detect the changes within 6 months! Do you know how cold it is in space? Do you know how long your coffee would stay warm if let it sit outside in freezing weather? Not long, right?

Now think of Ceres which is basically an asteroid which is smaller than Pluto, sitting out there in space which is very cold. One would think after billions of years that Ceres would be frozen out by now with no activity, right? Of course! Just like the coffee in freezing weather, there would be no reason to assume that the coffee would stay warm for many years after being exposed to cold weather for that long! Those who believe in the billions of years age would assume that as well and rightly so. But their assumptions about how old the solar system is, are in direct conflict with what is really going on in the solar system! 

So how did the scientists maintain the billions of years with Ceres? The answer, they didn’t, however, they came up with some imaginary estimates based on millions of years instead which falls way short of the billions of years in which they believe.  

But it’s not in conflict with creationism, rather it confirms it!  

 

Crashing Materialistic Paradigms

You have to love space exploration, the Cassini mission was fun to write about as it supplied a lot of data along with others space explorations like New Horizons which is now on its last leg of its mission after it passed by Pluto. And now along comes the Juno mission which hasn’t been a disappointment! Every mission has a huge magnitude of surprises (crashing materialistic paradigms) which goes far beyond the norm for exploring the unknown.

New Horizons 2

But when a human spacecraft is unable to travel vast amount of distances so that observations can be seen from a direct vantage point, evolutionary scientists decided to create SETI and Astrobiology and then waste millions of dollars on hypotheticals based on materialism (evolution). Take this paper contained in pnas as an example…

“The search for extraterrestrial life is one of the most exciting frontiers in present-day astronomy. Recently, the TRAPPIST-1 star was discovered to host seven rocky planets with masses and radii similar to those of the Earth, of which at least three of them may be capable of supporting life. Our paper addresses the possibility that life on one of these planets can spread to others through the transfer of rocky material. We conclude that this process has a high probability of being operational, implying that this planetary system may possess multiple life-bearing planets. Thus, our work has profound theoretical and observational consequences for future studies of the TRAPPIST-1 system and the likelihood of life in our galaxy.”

You have to give these scientists some credit, the fact that there is not one shred of evidence for life on those planets, no evidence for life being transported to Moon or Mars or any other planet in our solar system and yet, they get paid huge amounts of money to come up with these amazing science fiction stories so they can “look further” into the unknown subject. Abiogenesis or sometimes called chemical evolution or sometimes even referred to as “soups to cells”.  There is an attempt underway to divorce evolution with the origin of life because speculations are decreasing due to advance technology along with the complexity of the cells. The origin of life theory makes evolution overall look weaker. And if you are trying to convince people that evolution is an indisputable fact, you sure don’t want to make it look weak.

But the reality of the situation, evolution is weak. The subsets of evolution are weak as well. The problem with the origin of life from a materialistic view is that all components are required to be present, within the same location in order to have a remote possibility to create a living cell. However,  carbonyl chemical groups which are needed for life can destroy amino acids which are also needed for life. Living cells have mechanisms that prevent cross-reactions but not entirely, sometimes it does happen and when it does, living cells have the ability to repair the damage but dead chemicals do not have such abilities! If scientists do not know after 60+ years of trying how dead chemicals were created life on earth what makes them able to predict life on other planets that a spacecraft cannot fly to?

There is a huge difference between the Juno mission and this kind of so-called research!

Every encounter that Juno makes, crashes another materialistic paradigm as pointed out in The Conversation

“NASA’s Juno mission has started to deliver – forcing scientists to reevaluate what they thought they knew about the giant planet. The first findings from Juno, published in Science, indicate that many aspects of Jupiter have defied expectation – including the strength of its magnetic field, the shape of its core, the distribution of ammonia gas and the weather at its poles. It certainly makes this an exciting time to be a Jupiter scientist.”

Normally evolutionary scientists are taught, along with their egos, and agenda to never admit they are wrong. Rather, they will use words like, “improving our understanding or insight” or “needs to be looked further into” when their models are so way off base and looking into could last 50 to 100 years or more like the origin of life which leads to nowhere. Also admitting they are wrong would suggest that evolution, whether that be planetary evolution, or stellar evolution, or evolution in general, would suggest it’s rather weak in theory and that is a no-no, they want to make it look like the strongest thing in science that we know today. The Juno’s mission is no different.

Juno wasn’t the only spacecraft to record data that crushed assumptions about the planet’s magnetic field but NASA’s Cassini spacecraft during its final leg of its mission discovered as stated in NASA’s site

“Based on data collected by Cassini’s magnetometer instrument, Saturn’s magnetic field appears to be surprisingly well-aligned with the planet’s rotation axis. The tilt is much smaller than 0.06 degrees — which is the lower limit the spacecraft’s magnetometer data placed on the value prior to the start of the Grand Finale.”

“This observation is at odds with scientists’ theoretical understanding of how magnetic fields are generated. Planetary magnetic fields are understood to require some degree of tilt to sustain currents flowing through the liquid metal deep inside the planets (in Saturn’s case, thought to be liquid metallic hydrogen). With no tilt, the currents would eventually subside and the field would disappear.”

This is a common pattern with models that hold to the old age assumption, spacecraft which explore interesting parts of our vast solar system come back with data that contradict previous models held for many years which put scientists into rescue mode. Without these type of missions, it would be extremely difficult to tell what is really happening in the universe. And of course, NASA scientists would make these models sound like they are so well grounded and sound. Back to Jupiter, there are more discoveries to reveal…

Juno1

What Juno did discover was very interesting, one of the best scientific discoveries of 2017!

There is a lot of strange deep motions going on which requires further exploration. Other discoveries by Juno include:

Jupiter Pole 2

“Juno’s camera has revealed numerous bright cyclones of a variety of appearances – some appear sharp, some have clear spirals, some are fluffy and diffuse, and the largest is some 1400km across. That’s about the same distance between London and Majorca. These bright storms sit on top of dark clouds, giving the appearance of “floating” on a dark sea…”

Perhaps someday a second spacecraft which is smaller than the mothership will be released and take measurements and pictures as it heads into the largest planet in the solar system! While the mothership continues its study of the planet for many days to come. Obviously, Juno will collect more surprises for evolutionists in terms of their models. Juno’s mission has been a great success so far and planetary evolution is not required for this mission, the engineers at NASA are one of the best in the world. That is where the taxpayer money should go when exploring the great unknown, for the most part not always, creating models before observation data comes in anyone can do, but not everyone can build, launch, and drive a spacecraft into a precise orbit to explore the vast unknown like engineers can!

Juno’s Spectacular Mission

Juno is considered to be the fastest spacecraft to date, but it’s mission is even more spectacular. We know Jupiter to be the largest planet in our solar system but it also contains a very harsh environment. So harsh in fact, specialized material was created for the spacecraft in order to protect key electronics. Around Jupiter contains debris and extreme radiation that could render any flying object with electronics useless. NASA’s engineers came up with up some incredible math that would guide Juno to more than 130,000 miles an hour to this massive planet in a particular area which would be less harsh compared to other areas as high energy electrons are moving at the speed of light and then burn it’s engine for 35 minutes to slow the spacecraft down so that Jupiter’s gravity would take hold, thus an orbit around Jupiter.

It was specular intelligent design at work here! NASA had accomplished a feat that has never been accomplished before. Sadly, it is not all specular. While collecting data from Jupiter is good science, the use of the data is going to be used by evolutionists to create a story on how Jupiter formed and perhaps even Earth.

However, like in previous missions the latest being Pluto, some of the mysterious (observations) will be in conflict with the age of the planet. These are not the type of surprises that evolutionists expect. For example, Pluto was assumed to be a dead planet, far away from the sun, because it’s considered to be billions of years old. The environment of space is cold and it is just like a cup of coffee, you heat it up, and when you take away the heat, it cools down. Other examples include…

It was discovered that some asteroids have rings, why would that show youth rather than billions of years? Asteroids do not contain a lot of gravity, which would affect the rings being able to last billions of years. Even with computing in evolutionary assumptions, models have shown that these rings could last only 100 million years max! That is a far cry from 4.5 billion years old! This is not to suggest those rings are 100 million years old, but pointing out the fact that the computer programmers who believe in evolution cannot compute 4.5 billion years with reality. It is nothing more than tweaking their models to fit observations to assumptions of long ages.

Ceres is another where scientists are confronted with youthful features being discovered, temps inside are warmer, how could a small object stay that warm in cold space over 4.5 billion years? Only something much younger would be able to stay that active.

And the list of other discoveries are long…This is why space exploration is more intriguing than ever! It is not as old as evolutionary scientists would like us to believe but rather only thousands which confirms the biblical account which also means there are a lot of amazing activities going on in our solar system because of its youthful features! What they will find in Jupiter will be features that defy long ages that will present them puzzles because it is not fitting into the evolutionary time scale. But as for us creationists, this is an exciting time! It is predicted here that Jupiter doesn’t agree either will being billions of years old :)

New Ceres Data Defies 4.5 Billion Years

This has been and is going to continue to be a reoccurring theme! As we explore the solar system, Planetary scientists who believe in evolution are going to have to come up with new speculation on why the data is not confirming billions of years. Here is a prediction, when New Horizons passes by its next object in deep space, it too is going to discover youthful features that will surprise scientists much like Pluto did, much like other planets and moons did in our solar system.

So what is the new data which defies 4.5 billion years? Here take a look at this picture…

ceres bright-spots

You noticed bright spots on the surface. These bright spots on Ceres have stunned planetary scientists because of their implications. The bright spots as you see here are epsom salts which came from water-ice. Occator is the name of the crater where we see here the epsom salts. Planetary Scientists believe this crater is 80 million years old, however, the bright spots they say in their own words, “should not have lasted nearly that long.”  They are quite right, because you have a dwarf planet with no atmosphere, and over millions or even billions of years would have long gone. Water evaporates very rapidly with no atmosphere and what they say would be left is…“magnesium sulphate spots.” So if Ceres was that old, we wouldn’t be seeing what we are seeing today! But if Ceres is younger then what they say, these features are a confirmation rather than a data conflict! There is no doubt, the evidence suggests that Ceres is younger than its assumed old age.

Since this conflicts with planetary evolution, evolutionary scientists have to work on their story on how the impossible just happened before their eyes and then fit that back into their belief system. This is why it takes more faith to believe in evolution than it does believing in God!  I love space exploration, I hope to see a lot more, these discoveries are very exciting and also a confirmation of creationism.

Ceres Disproves Model

We are living in some exciting times, because we get to see things and learn about things in our solar system and the Universe in general which no man has seen or learned before! Do some of you remember the story about how the solar system was formed?  Those of you who went to public schools like myself were surely taught this, and those in private Christian or religious schools may have touched about this subject as well when discussing the differences between creationism and evolution.

Here is how the story was told in the text books in public schools as also told in nature

“4.5 billion years ago, the Solar System formed in a disk of gas and dust particles that surrounded the newly born Sun. The ‘giant’ planets (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune) formed first, within the few million years of the disk’s lifetime. Closer to the Sun, the small, rocky ‘terrestrial’ planets (Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars) took tens of million years to form, by collisions of numerous smaller objects generated in the disk. Myriad small bodies formed the asteroid belt between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter.”

I’m sure that most of you remember that story when you were in school or currently are in school in the upper grades. Currently, the DAWN spacecraft’s mission was to gather data from the largest asteroid called, “Ceres” for the purpose of confirming such a story in order to gain more understanding but as it turned out that wasn’t the case.

Bright spots was discovered on Ceres and the data gathered by DAWN revealed it is mostly likely, salt. Here is another discovery

“Dawn has also found ammonia-rich clays on Ceres, a second Nature paper reports2. Ammonia is more common in the frigid outer Solar System than in the asteroid belt where Ceres reigns.”

Also…“Ceres occasionally sports a cloud of ice and dust within one of its largest craters.”  This was discovered by the DAWN last February  as it approached.

Like Pluto, it was discovered that Ceres is active. So what does this all mean? I’ll let the very first article which I quoted in nature answered that question.. “Despite decades of attempts, no computational realization of standard formation theories has reproduced the mass and orbital distribution of both the terrestrial planets and the asteroids.” 

This doesn’t mean space exploration is a waste of time, to the contrary. It’s these secular models which go nowhere in endless circles being disproved by direct evidence which gives secular scientists a lot of work to revise their story about how our solar system supposedly evolved that leads to no understanding. The more we learn about the solar system the more we learn how these models don’t work. And the reason for this is, our solar system did not evolve. It was intelligently designed by God.

We know the designer of the universe but does that mean we should not explore it and learn about it? No! You never read or see mainstream creation scientists or advocates talking against technology or space exploration. There is nothing anti-biblical learning about God’s created handy work! And there is nothing wrong about the evidence disproving these stories either! More on space exploration to come and more.

 

First Paper On Pluto Reveals More Complexity

“At 4.5 billion years old, scientists did not expect to find an active dwarf planet, but New Horizons captured a trove of evidence upending this belief.”

-ABC News

“The practice of declaring an unfalsifiable theory to be scientifically true is pseudoscience

-Philosopher of science Karl Popper’s scientific epistemology

When declaring an unfalsifiable theory in this case planet evolution is pseudoscience. The amazing discoveries which have been found so far are a prime example. Evolution always sounds better in story format because one can come up with all kinds of conclusions which are not necessarily true or on the right path, but when it comes to direct observations it is falsified.

The first paper reveals more complexity and a lesson on how a “belief” is in the process of trying to be rescued from evidence that contradicts it. You see scientists who believe in evolution assume or shall I say estimate that Pluto is currently 4.5 billion years old. Many of the secular scientists predicted that Pluto was way past its prime because of its assumed age, so they believed that Pluto would be nothing more than a cold and lifeless planet but still interesting to explore! When New Horizons flew by and was able to start downloading its data (currently only 15 percent has been downloaded so far) we find that the direct observations of Pluto was far from that! So says Alan Stern who is the principal scientist on the New Horizons project, “Finding that Pluto is geologically active after 4.5 billion years…there’s not big enough typeface to write that in.”

New Horizons was also able to capture some amazing data of Pluto’s moons which also doesn’t agree with the assumption of billions of years old. Nix and Hydra have bright surfaces, this presents a major problem for the belief in billions of years old because there is a lot going on externally such as radiation darkening, the transfer of darker material from Charon via impacts, impacts with dark Kuiper Belt meteorites. The evidence suggests youth not old age. It will to be interesting the various stories they will come up with to try to preserve billions of years old that defy common sense.

Pluto has 3-kilometre-high ice mountains, pretty spectacular!  This indicates that Pluto is geologically active, but this presents a major problem for the old age assumption once again, where is the energy that can be sustain over billions of years coming from to create these ice mountains? This is when the storytelling begins, you have one idea that suggests (with no evidence) that uranium is present on Pluto. What do you think is strange about this idea that considers radioactivity as the energy source that supposedly been working over billions of years? Well if the radioactivity is heating the plains why are the ice mountains which are next to it, not affected by it?  Here is an experiment for you, take a piece of ice and place it next to heat and see what happens, then you know I mean :)

The conclusions to keep it so old is not science rather just a belief that they think needs to be preserve otherwise the rest of their theory in other areas of evolution go down too. Pluto is not 4.5 billion years old! Neither are its moons! The new data coming in from New Horizons confirms the Bible more than planet evolution!
