-Pleiades–( the Seven Sisters and Messier 45) -astronomer Edmond Halley Analyzed the Orbit of a comet 1600 years earlier rabbi yehoshua already knew about these stars Talmud Horiot 10a- Before Galileo Galilei – we though there was only around 4-8,000 stars Brachot 32- “God said to the people of Israel: I created twelve constellation in the firmament (groupings of stars: Libra, Scorpio, Pisces, etc.), and for each constellation I created thirty hosts (clusters of stars for each of the twelve signs), and for each host I created thirty legions (thirty legions of stars for each of the thirty hosts), and for each legion I created thirty divisions, and for each division I created battalion I created thirty camps and to each camp I have attached three hundred and sixty-five thousand tens of thousands of stars, corresponding to the days of the solar year, and all of them I have created only for your sake”. So we see the torah has in it that there are millions of stars Math 1,000 x 10,000=10,000,000 each camp has 365 x 10,000,000 stars which means 3,650,000,000 How many camps are there in the universe? 30 camps x 30 battalions x 30 divisions x 30 legions x 30 hosts x 12 constellations =291,600,000 291,600,000x 3,650,000,000=1,064,340,000,000,000,000 Sun sheath” the outer most layer of the sun is around 6000 C( 10,832 F), as you approach the center of the sun your looking at around 15,000,000 C (Breishit Rabbah Chapter 6): “The sun has a ‘sheath’.” The midrash mentions in this context the verse in Psalms (19:5):  “for the sun He made a tent therein.” -unar month rabban gamileal – we have a rule that the renewal of the moon could never be less the 29 and a half days and 2/3rd of hour and 73 parts of the min when we calculated that we get 29.530590 A summary of the calculation according to the Torah: 29.5 days + 2/3 of an hour + 73 parts of an hour. 1. 2/3 hour = 720 parts (since an hour is divided into 1080 parts. See note ?) 2. 73 parts + 720 parts = 793 parts 3. 793/1080 parts of an hour = 0.734259 hour. 4. 0.734259 hour = 0.03059 of a day. 5. 0.03059 + 29.5 days = 29.53059 days Torah =29.530590 Nasa = 29.530588 Water in Space genesis 1:7 midrash rabbah bereshit 4:5 says that not only is there water in space it is greater than the water we have on earth “ the upper waters are more abundant than the lower waters” considering the vast amount of water in our planet its hard to believe such a statement . Being that the torah says the waters are “above the firmament” this means that the upper waters are dependent upon hashem spoken word ( meaning they are floating ion free space) the midrash rabba 4:2-3 further states that its is frozen Tunguska event  Professor Fred Whipple from Harvard university is the director of the Smithsonian astrophysical observatory . He has successfully proven that comets are made up of ice mixed with dust and rock . 1986 professor Louis Frank an astrophysicist at the university of Iowa- why dont we see all these meteorites entering the atmosphere each night?( studied the photographs from the Dynamics Exploerer 1 spacecraft ) and saw that most meteorites are disintegrated remains of comets , therefore they are mainly comprised of ice which metls as the particles enter the upper atmosphere and eventually falls as rain. Professor Frank and his research colleague, Dr. John Sigwarth, presented a new series of photographs taken by the Polar spacecraft launched in 1996. Frank and Sigwarth claimed that these photographs provided a clear view of meteorites moving in a trajectory towards Earth, entering the atmosphere, melting and turning into rain. Taanit 9a( as well as check maharsha comments on this subject [1555-1631]) earths water comes form two sources – oceans and space pirkie D’rebbe Eliezer chapter 4- discusses 2 types of precipitation: one originating in the oceans which provides the majority of the rain and a second a higher quality rain that falls from the heaven: ROUND EARTH- FLAT EARTH -Blood, clot-A study In the New England Journal of Medicine (1990) reported a complication rate of 0.19 percent when circumcision is performed by a physician. When performed by a trained mohel, the rate falls to 0.13 percent or about 1 in 1000. Dr. Armand J. Quick, author of several works on the control of bleeding, “It hardly seems accidental that the rite of circumcision was postponed until the eighth day by the Mosaic law.” chew its cud-Leviticus 11:1-8 This means that one who wants to eat animal meat, has to check if the animal has two signs of purity: 1. It has split hooves (the hooves of its feet are not one piece but are two separate parts). 2. It brings up its cud (it regurgitates and rechews its food after it was swallowed).
