-85 degrees, thats freezing, sure to cool the ice rings to increase profit again!

The very closest star is our sun. It is ~ 97,300,000(100 million) miles away from us. Just with our own eyes were can see other individual stars, far far beyond our sun, well in excess of 7000 million million miles away.
From the tops of mountains, using just their eyes, trained people have seen galaxies 70 million million million miles away. Of course, telescopes can detect massively erupting galaxies more than a thousand times further into space than that.
God gave us the universe to see AND to understand. Please, go to your nearest astronomy club, where amateur astronomers love to teach the sky to people, families, & everyone who love the stars.

Before further astronomy lessons, you must admit your first statement is wrong.

God wants us to know him, in His majesty & grandeur. His majesty & grandeur are evident in the dark heavens that move over your head. But it takes us, getting rid of our 'littleness' to understand His Bigness.

Telescopes see(& unaided eyes), not only millions of miles, but a thousand million miles, & further yet, a million million miles, & further yet, a million million million miles, & further yet, 7000 million million million miles, & further yet, telescopes see-- a million million million million miles, & further yet..........

Those millions of miles are NOT ADDED together, they are MULTIPLIED together.

Does it say this? What is the exact size and distance of the sun? What is the actually limits of telescopes reported? Do some research. If telescopes could see that far tank sights in the military would see around millions of miles, instead of busting other tanks around a mile or so.

No, the details of trigonometry isn't needed. I've taught the distance scaling of the Universe to hundreds of people, most without trigonometry. I've even taught it to people & families at star parties, in the dark of the night, as telescopes show many astronomical objects. I've taught the scaling to 1st graders. Parallax, at its simplest level, can be understand with the outstretched finger & switching between left & right eyes. Once I've completed my scaling of the Universe, I've seen kids eyes burst with thought & awe, as they wrap their minds around the dimensions of the Universe so well, they feel it, at the gut level.

LOL! Ain't fascinating me laddy! At such distances those index finger measurements would be off the mark! And the angle the sun is at may fool your eyes! The earth is round, so hard to measure the angle of the sun up to the earth!

Don't worry about the military. Already, they have optics that can bounce laser beams off the moon,~ 240,000 miles away, within yards(or less) of their target. They can use interferometry to read computers on Earth........ from Earth orbit. That is why enemies of the U.S. flood their computer buildings with wide spectrum electromagnetic radiation, to confuse satellites, so we can't read their computers, inside buildings.

Meanwhile, God gave us telescopes to know His majesty & greatness better, that we would worship the Great I AM.

Fingers just teach the principle. Telescopes take the principle & refine it to exquisite accuracy. With lasars, methods are used to decrease air turbulence to gain the ultimate accuracy of telescopes, & interferometry is used to link a number of telescopes at far distances together to get even more resolution. Radio telescopes, inherently NOT SHARP, use interferometry, so that telescopes thousands of miles apart can be electronically linked to give the sharpness of a radio telescope the size of the Earth!

Even more technology is coming that will better those strides in telescopic sharpness & science.

Its not lasar vision. Its using lasars to know more. The lasars are used to determine the distance to the moon with in small parts of an inch, tho the moon is ~ 240,000 miles away on an average.

Lazers would work, but not at a huge distance way beyond the reach of opticals, so the opticals wouldn't even so that far in the first place for the laser to combine to increase resolution, if that is what you are saying.

And light might even slow down with distance. Making lightyears innaccurate.

Lasars can analyse the turbulent air over telescopes & feed back the information to pressure sensors on the bottom of the astronomical mirror. The pressure sensor adjusts the pressure point on the mirror to account for the exact kind of turbulence in the air over the telescope.

But since you're a slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig AND an alleged & proud threatener, I could care less what you can learn from me. You've already learned much from other toxic topix AGW denier slimy steenking filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pigs AND alleged & proud threateners.

And you think topix doesn’t know what you publish? Attacks on me won't delete or erase what you are and what you do. You should stop making an ASSumption of your---self before you know the facts. Do contact topix to satisfy your accusations of the reprint BS your posting of what I said. You are a dumbASSumption of your---self again.

But chemicals could also effect it. And calculations aren't foolproof. Sometimes they could go very wrong, especially over big distances. That is why new ballistic computers are always being developed for firing control systems, to make them more and more accurate.
