HUBBLE SPACE TELESCOPE
April 24, 1990 - USA
The Space Shuttle Discovery launched the Hubble Space Telescope into orbit. It is hoped that the Telescope will be able to see up to the edge of the known universe. Although Hubble had some problems in the beginning with the original mirror design after repairs consisting of a series of corrective mirrors which are carried out in space, Hubble has sent back a series of stunning photographs of deep space, and revolutionized thinking about the universe.

The Real Differences
by William J. Clinton on Dec 31, 1969
"..."The real differences around the world today are not between Jews and Arabs; Protestants and Catholics; Muslims, Croats, and Serbs. The real differences are between those who embrace peace and those who would destroy it; between those who look to the future and those who cling to the past; between those who open their arms and those who are determined to clench their fists."..."
Today, Christians often celebrate
about Palm Sunday
Today, Christians often celebrate Palm Sunday in a joyous, triumphant manner during worship services, emphasizing the glory of Jesus Christ. Some churches spread palm branches at the front of the sanctuary as a way to commemorate the event. Some even take the time (often during church school) to walk a real-live donkey around town while waving palm fronds as their own "announcement" to the community about the coming of Jesus Christ.
It is celebrated on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the first day of spring. In some countries, Easter is called "Pascha", which comes from the Hebrew word for Passover. The Jewish holiday of Passover took place just before Christ's crucifixion and resurrection. The Eastern Orthodox Church uses other factors to determine the date and will celebrate this year on May 5. Christianity is one of the world's largest religions, with approximately two billion followers around the world.
