Abstract

If one looks up in the sky, and tries to fathom the vastness of space out there, beyond the Earth, the solar system, and even our galaxy, one cannot help but feel a sense of wonder and awe. Many people have had this sentiment over the centuries, no matter whether they had telescopes at their disposal, or just a clear look at the night sky. Such a wonderful and marvelous thing as the universe, many thought, certainly has to have a spark of divinity in it. And as is customary for the god in any Abrahamic religion, it should be eternal and unchanging in its magnificence.
