KEMARIN SORE aku sempat ngeliat debat antara 2 orang Iraq mengenai
apakah bumi itu datar atau spherical.

Pengusung keyakinan bhw bumi itu datar seorang yg Iraq yg sudah berumur
kira2 60 th dg gigih menyatakan bhw pengetahuan apapun yg tidak didukung
oleh ayat2 Al Qur'an mustahil benar.

Orang ini a.l. menyatakan bhw bulan itu garis menengahnya setengah dari
garis menengah matahari! Dia haqul-yakin bhw bumi itu datar (spt tempat
tidur orang2 Bedu - yaitu sajadah yg digelar di pasir) krn itulah yg
dinyatakan oleh Aulloh dlm Qur'an.

Mengingat Qur'an tidak banyak menyebut ttg banyak cabang dari science
maka orang ini tentunya percaya bhw listrik itu sebenarnya tidak ada,
begitu juga pesawat terbang, shuttle, telephone, internet, bahkan
internal combustion engine dan mobil dan ratusan ribu hasil penemuan
Kafir yg apparantly Aulloh totally missed.

fiery molten centre and heavily gaseous atmosphere, which mimics the
atmosphere of Jupiter, the gas giant in our own solar system.

scientists have been able to identify water vapour in its atmosphere.

radiation coming from the planet's hot surface. These wavelengths can be
detected by space telescopes such as Hubble or the Sun-orbiting Spitzer
telescope used in this study.

by looking at the spread of infrared radiation reaching the telescope,
each gas producing a different wavelength.

has looked for signs of water on similar gas giants in the past. He says
water vapour in the atmosphere leaves an unmistakeable signal.

the radiation in a very characteristic way," he said.

radiation detected by the telescope comes from this gas giant and how
much from the star it orbits.

> "There is a time when we know the planet is not visible, so we know
the light comes only from the star," says Dr Carl Grillmair from the
Spitzer Science Center at the California Institute of Technology, who
led the research.
> They found HD 1897733b goes round its star every 2.2 days, by taking
measurements over several orbiting cycles and deducting the radiation
produced during the time when they couldn't see the planet - when it was
behind its star - they were able to see how much radiation the planet
emitted on its own.

unique moment in which to observe the star in isolation," said Dr

> The scientists were puzzled by earlier observations of HD 189733b and
similar gas giants. They expected to see water vapour, but the
telescopes did not detect any.
> "We concluded there was no water a couple of years ago, the
theoreticians were upset, they'd predicted it would be there. We didn't
understand it. We looked much harder we watched it for over 120 hours,
and sure enough there was the signature matching brilliantly with the
models," said Dr Grillmair.
> He suggests the planet's proximity to the star means its atmosphere is
constantly changing.
> "With planets this close to their star, the star covers perhaps half
the planet, you're going to get enormous heat loads that create storms,
perhaps clouds one year and none the next - this thing is changing right
before our eyes" said Dr Grillmair.
> The scientists suggest high clouds created by the storms may have
hidden the water vapour in the earlier observations, they are confident
that the latest findings are correct.
> "What's new about this is it's unequivocal," says Dr Deming.
> In a separate development, Nasa says the Hubble space telescope has
detected carbon dioxide in HD189733's atmosphere.
> Although the agency is keen to stress the planet is far too hot to
support life, it says the finding represents an important proof of
concept, showing that it is possible to detect CO2 in the atmospheres of
distant planets orbiting other stars, and that the same method could be
used to look at planets which might support life.
> "The very fact we are able to detect it and estimate its abundance is
significant for the long-term effort of characterising planets to find
out what they are made of and if they could be a possible host for
life," said Mark Swain, a research scientist at Nasa's Jet Propulsion
Laboratory in Pasadena, California, who analysed the Hubble images.
