“Could There Be Life? This Newfound ‘Super-Earth’ May Be Habitable”

Astronomers have found a nearby “super-Earth” exoplanet that may be capable of supporting life as we know it.

An international group of astronomers discovered the planet using NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) earlier this year in the constellation Hydra, about 31 light-years from Earth, according to a statement by NASA. (One light-year is the distance light travels in a year, about 6 trillion miles, or 10 trillion kilometers.)

The exoplanet, named GJ 357 d, is believed to be around twice the size of Earth and harbor six times Earth’s mass. Located in the outer edge of its host star’s “habitable zone,” scientists believe that this super-Earth could have water on its surface.

Huge Hole in Sun May Be Hurling Towards Earth

Hmmm, prelude to Matthew 24:29?  These bizarre events are just a taste of what is to come. I won’t be here to experience them…I pray you won’t be either. I’ll be a part of verse 30 though…not the mourning, but the returning…will you?

29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
