[Podcast Episode 52] Let’s explore the solar system for some of the smallest objects orbiting our sun! We examine a recent article in the peer reviewed CRS Journal for fascinating facts about comets and other distant objects. Then, we hear what it’s like as a kid reading through the Institute for Creation Research’s new book about dinosaurs.
If you enjoy the show, please leave us a rating (which takes 5 seconds) or review (2 minutes, tops). Thanks!
verses 1-4a Easy-to-Read Version
The heavens tell about the glory of God.
The skies announce what his hands have made.
Each new day tells more of the story,
and each night reveals more and more about God’s power.
You cannot hear them say anything.
They don’t make any sound we can hear.
But their message goes throughout the world.
Their teaching reaches the ends of the earth.
Notice how this translation tells us the heavens don’t make sounds we hear? But the King James Version says, “There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.”
The trick is in understanding why those words are in italics!
Oh, yes, want to hear the sounds astronomers make out of the light pulses stars send out?…
I read the article out of the Creation Research Society’s quarterly journal. It was written by John Hartnett and you can find his blog at Bible Science Forum. His articles aren’t easy reading, but they are fascinating!

Short period comet: You can find out more about Halley’s Comet (it circles every 76 years, not exactly 70) at KidsAstronomy.com. How old will you be in 2061 AD when it swings back around?!!
Long period comet: And the brightest comet your parents have probably seen? Hale-Bopp glowed in the sky early in 1997 and won’t swing back around for over 2,000 years!

Buying directly from the Institute for Creation Research helps out their ministry the most. Plus, they have a cool video on the special design specifications such large animals required.
