Like how man built these things without having yet discovered the wheel...because man didn't build them. Additional information on the activities and exhibits at Astronomy Night can be found here. The planes of the planetary orbits are all within a few degrees of the ecliptic, the plane that contains Earth’s orbit around the Sun. But they were followed in 1999 by the disastrous losses of the Wide-Field Infrared Explorer telescope and two planetary missions, the Mars Climate Orbiter and the Mars Polar Lander.

Solar astronomers use different telescopes than night time astronomers use, because the Sun is so bright. You will see how each planet uniquely testifies of its Creator. In the author's judgment, there is no gulf that separates science and religion. In some cases, a large amount of inconsistent data over time may lead to total abandonment of a model. Don't wait--be the first to classify one of hundreds of thousands of stars that have never been seen before! Some of the key scientific questions we are trying to address are: how did the cosmic abundances of the chemical elements build up with time?
