The Glory of God: Extrasolar Planets

From The New York Times: First Pictures Taken of "Extrasolar" Planets.

’The heavens declare the glory of God; the sky proclaims its builder’s craft. 
One day to the next conveys that message; one night to the next imparts that knowledge.
There is no word or sound; no voice is heard;
Yet their report goes forth through all the earth, their message, to the ends of the world. God has pitched there a tent for the sun;
it comes forth like a bridegroom from his chamber, and like an athlete joyfully runs its course.
From one end of the heavens it comes forth; its course runs through to the other; nothing escapes its heat.’  --Psalm 19, NAB

I think it is so awesome that we've come to further explore the world that God has placed us in. The sheer expansion of the universe is so awesome, and it probably doesn't even stop there! How awesome it'd be if we came to find out God created other beings outside of our own world. It's definately far out! Amen, God's glory reaches to the ends of the universe, however far that goes on. Praise the Lord!
