Here Comes the Sun
« on: August 12, 2018, 06:54:30 PM »
The Parker solar probe launched early this morning.  It will take about seven years to reach a close orbit of about 4 million miles from the sun toward the latter part of 2024.  Hopefully it has enough shielding:  https://www.space.com/41454-nasa-parker-solar-probe-launches-to-sun.html

If nothing else the pictures will be spectacular!

And Dr. Eugene Parker might be a new contender for coolest guy named Eugene.  ;)
Quote from: Michael, Pope of Rome
We should fortify ourselves with the truths of the Faith. Our main focus should be to become saints. Unfortunately some spend much of their time in either trying to sort things out or what is worse, trying to convince the world that they are right. If we all aim at sanctifying ourselves, God will intervene and He will straighten things out. We cannot do it without Him.

That's really neat news!  Keep us posted.   :)
Is any of the above Orthodox?  I have no clue, so there's that.
