Notes & Transcripts

The extremely cold weather across much of North America in early January 2014, created an odd comparison between two planets. On the first day of 2014, the temperature in Winnipeg, Manitoba was 31 below zero Celsius. In the meantime, on Mars, which is over 100 million miles further away from the sun, the Curiosity rover recorded a warmer 29 below zero Celsius. On that day, it was actually slightly warmer on Mars than in Canada. The Martian rover has an environmental monitoring station, and had been reporting daily high temperatures ranging from -25 to -31 degrees Celsius for about a month. The coldest daily high the rover had recorded since it landed on Mars was -31 degrees Celsius. Like Earth, Mars has differing climates, and the area where the rover has been working would be the rough equivalent of Venezula on Earth. Regardless of how you look at it, Winnipeg started the year very cold, so cold that they had something in common with another planet for at least one day.—Jim L. Wilson and Jim Sandell

Right now, it's as cold in Canada as where our rover is on Mars, http://news.msn.com/offbeat/right-now-its-as-cold-in-canada-as-where-our-rover-is-on-mars, Accessed January 2, 2014.

Genesis 8:22 (ESV) While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.”
