He’s Got The Whole World In His Hands


I love this first sentence from an article in this week’s paper, headlined “Solar system is dented, not round, space probes show.

“When viewed from the rest of the galaxy, the edge of our solar system appears slightly dented as if a giant hand is pushing one edge of it inward, far-traveling NASA probes reveal.”

Later in the article they quote a NASA scientist.

“We used to assume that it’s all symmetric and simple,” said Leonard Burlaga, an astrophysicist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md. “It’s literally like a hand pushing.

Reminds me of the song we all learned as a kids, “He’s got the whole world, in His hands.”
