7-26-03 - VISION - I was looking at a computer screen. On the screen was typed - a conversation between two people about 'The Riddle of the Stars".

The words, "The Riddle of the Stars" was quoted twice within the conversation.

I then went into a dream:

DREAM - I was working in a school and we were studying the stars. We were getting ready for a big event but before it could happen, two boys had to release the garbage, so it could fall down from above and be destroyed.

There was a big green dumpster there and two boys, about 8 to 10 years old stood on the release bar. They jumped on it together and all the garbage fell into the pit. Unfortunately the two boys also fell and disappeared. I didn't see them again.

I was headed for the front door of the school to let the students in for the day and met my cousin Judy who was standing there in the hallway crying. I reached out my arms to her and she came into my arms and leaned against me and cried for a moment. I asked her what was wrong. She said she was worried about her younger brother.

I said, "Yes! I remember him well. I worked for him - I mean he worked for me. Both your brother Al (the older brother) and the younger brother (I visualized him as dark haired with darker skin) worked for me for a time. He always did what he was told, even when he was rebellious.

"Yes!" She agreed. "He always did what he was told."

I said, "You know, of all of the beloved relatives I had, "Your Father (Lester) was the most beloved."

She smiled through her tears and felt better.

I moved on towards the lobby where there was a Christmas sale going on. Everything one could imagine of a decorative nature was in this room, on shelves and counters.

A woman named Joy was selling some special items. I was told this was a 1st. She had an emerald green bottle of glass that looked like large Aunt Jemima syrup bottle and it had a 5 pointed star with a circle around it etched in its stomach for a belly button. The etching was inlaid with pure gold. Its head was a cross between a Buddha and Santa Claus.

once I saw the first one, then I saw that there were many others there behind her as well. The bottles etchings on the glass were all inlaid with pure gold. They were truly exquisite.

I then walked to the front lobby and I looked down and saw that I was dressed in green and gold myself (These are Green Bay Packer colors) and several of the men/students were also dressed like me in green and gold. These male students all had long beards down to the waist.

I opened the door to the school and all the students which had been outside the door, filed past me one by one with huge smiles on their faces - so happy to be coming to school to study the stars.

When most of the students had passed by, I looked out over at the hill next tot he school. There were no dried leaves of autumn on it - they had all be blown away and the hill was paved over in brilliant sky blue. It was truly beautiful.

Then I closed the doors after all the students came in and school began.


Joe Mason relates this : I wrote a speculation that Adam and Eve represent One person, with the dual aspects, based on dreams. The primary dream was told to me by a co-worker. He was on a starship in space, and a VERY important message was about to come in. But, it could not come until he ejected the garbage first, which he then did. A doctor appeared, and led the crew into a bedroom. He began working on a yard-high mound of a jelly-like substance at the foot of the empty bed. Suddenly, the dreamer saw a human-sized hand puppet, a male/female pair, with only one hand- hole. They fell back into a vat of water, and he knew they HAD to change.

NOTE: The night before I published this page, a huge coincidence occurred. A gigantic downpour of rain and wind came roaring through the area, knocked over our dumpster container and spilled garbage all over the ground.  ....  Does that mean there is a message coming soon???

Abraham was told, "Look to the stars and if you can, count them. So shall your descendants be." Genesis 15:5

as you look into the night sky you see a million stars

There are billions of galaxies behind the dime you hold up to the sky
and there are more stars than all the grains of sand on millions 
of earths away out there

In the book of Enoch which didn't make it into the bible,  in Chapter 8 it says:

1 And Azazel taught men to make swords, and knives, and shields, and breastplates, and made known to them the metals of the earth and the art of working them, and bracelets, and ornaments, and the use of antimony, and the beautifying of the eyelids, and all kinds of costly stones, and all 2 coloring tinctures. And there arose much godlessness, and they committed fornication, and they 3 were led astray, and became corrupt in all their ways. Semjaza taught enchantments, and root-cuttings, 'Armaros the resolving of enchantments, Baraqijal (taught) astrology, Kokabel the constellations, Ezeqeel the knowledge of the clouds, Araqiel the signs of the earth, Shamsiel the signs of the sun, and Sariel the course of the moon. And as men perished, they cried, and their cry went up to heaven . . .

and in Chapter 9:

33.2 And to the east of these animals, I saw the ends of the Earth, on which Heaven rests, and the open Gates of Heaven. 33.3 And I saw how the stars of Heaven come out, and counted the Gates out of which they come, and wrote down all their outlets, for each one, individually, according to their number. And their names, according to their constellations, their positions, their times, and their months, as the Angel Uriel, who was with me, showed me. 33.4 And he showed me everything, and wrote it down, and also their names he wrote down for me, and their laws and their functions. 34.1 And from there I went towards the north, to the ends of the Earth, and there I saw a great and glorious wonder at the ends of the whole Earth. 34.2 And there I saw three Gates of Heaven; through each of them north winds go out; when they blow there is cold, hail, hoarfrost, snow, fog, and rain. 34.3 And from one Gate, it blows for good; but when they blow through the other two Gates, it is with force, and it brings torment over the earth, and they blow with force. 35.1 And from there I went towards the west, to the ends of the Earth, and I saw there, as I saw in the east, three open Gates - as many Gates and as many outlets. 36.1 And from there I went towards the south, to the ends of the Earth, and there I saw three Gates of Heaven open; and the south wind, the mist, and the rain, and wind, come out from there. 36.2 And from there I went towards the east of the ends of Heaven, and there I saw the three eastern Gates of Heaven open, and above them, there were smaller Gates. 36.3 Through each of these smaller Gates, the stars of Heaven pass, and go towards the west, on the path that has been shown to them.

The Book of Enoch

The four "cornerstone" constellations, which date back to the Prophet Enoch, correspond to the four faces of the cherubim and the four principal tribes of Israel. Their symbols of the lion, eagle/serpent, man and wild ox (unicorn) are emblazoned on family coats of arms and the banners of nations.

Several ancient cultures designated four bright stars in the zodiac as the "four corners of the earth" or the "four royal stars." At the time the constellations were drawn by Enoch, these four stars were near the sun's location in the heavens on the first day of autumn, winter, spring and summer, and were thus in four of the most important locations in the sky. The identity of these four stars is well known because there are, in fact, four bright stars which fit these requirements admirably. First, the star Antares is a bright red star, which anciently marked the autumnal equinox, that is, the place in the sky where the sun appears on the first day of autumn. The next star in the sequence is Fomalhaut, which is also a bright star, marking winter. The next star is Aldebaran, another very bright red star located 180.0° around the ecliptic (the apparent path of the sun through the stars) from Antares. Thus, it precisely marked the spring equinox when Antares marked the autumn. Finally, the bright star Regulus, located almost exactly on the ecliptic, marked summer. Regulus, meaning "the Prince," was traditionally the leader of these four royal stars.

Each of the four royal stars is in one constellation of the zodiac, which is the circle of twelve constellations around the ecliptic. Antares is located at the heart of the Scorpion (Scorpius). Fomalhaut is located at the end of the rivers of water being poured out by the Water Bearer (Aquarius). Aldebaran is located at the eye of the Bull (Taurus). Finally, Regulus is located at the heart of the Lion (Leo), which is the king of the constellations, even as the lion is called the king of beasts. These are called the four cornerstone constellations in this article because they form the corners of a great square in the sky and also provide a foundation for understanding gospel symbolism.

Two of the royal stars are listed by the ancients as being shared by two constellations. Antares is not only the heart of the scorpion, it is also the heel of the Serpent Bearer (Ophiuchus), [2] who was encircled by a great serpent (Serpens) and who is stepping on the body and head of the Scorpion. Fomalhaut is not only in the stream of the Water Bearer, it is also in the Head of the Southern Fish (Piscis Australis).[3]

In the case of the Scorpion/Serpent pair, there is a third constellation which is very closely associated with them. It is the Eagle (Aquila), which is located near the tail of the Serpent. The Eagle has been considered to typify the enemy of the serpent and is often shown holding the Serpent in its claws, even as the Serpent Bearer is crushing the Scorpion.

More on the Four Cornerstone Constellations

God Himself is responsible for the names of the stars. He did not entrust this task to Adam, as Hedid in the giving of names to animals (Psalm 147:4; Isaiah 40:26). We can be sure that the names God gave to the stars had purpose and significance. Many of these names have been preserved to this day. Even a casual consideration of them will impress the Bible student with the remarkable similarity to concepts, types, and themes that are prominent in the Word of God. The meanings of the names of most of the brightest stars bear this out (see the preceding chart). But the names of individual stars, significant as they may be, are of limited value unless there is some order or system by which the star names may convey a meaningful story in concert.

The stars at night shine in seeming disarray against the blackness of space until they are connected in the way that their Designer intended. Then the great prophetic picture story is revealed.

Job 38:31-33 - God is speaking directly to His servant Job. He says, "Can you bind the cluster of the Pleiades, or loose the belt of Orion? Can you bring out Mazzaroth in its season? Do you know the ordinances of the heavens? Can you set their dominion over the earth?"

Mazzaroth occurs in the context of the voice of Jehovah from the whirlwind (Job 38-41). Job shrivels up before God as challenge after challenge from the voice of the Creator accentuates Job's own nothingness in the presence of the Almighty. The infinite power and wisdom of the eternal God are contrasted time and again with the impotence and ignorance of Job as finite man, until Job is completely humbled. In the middle of this great barrage of challenges, Job is asked the question.

The Mazzaroth - The Alpha and Omega - The Study of the Stars  by Jim A Cornwell

Mazzaroth Defined

(Mazzaloth) appears in 2 Kings 23:5. The English Revised Version has "the twelve signs" and in the margin "the signs of the zodiac." The word itself means:  The Separated, The Divided, or The Apportioned, and it refers to the allotted spaces given to the twelve signs in the circle of the zodiac. These are the signs that mark the twelve divisions of the year.

The challenge of Jehovah to Job is that he might bring forth the twelve signs in their successive order. Of course only Jehovah could do it.

The Scriptures mention the twelve signs of the zodiac, with the direct implication that God brings them into view at the proper time for His own purposes.

Many of us have been brought up to associate the twelve signs with the of astrology. Astrology is a "soft science" which deals with subjective states of mind as well as with objective facts. Some branches of astrology are : electional, esoteric, genethliacal, horary, medical, meteorological, and mundane.

The book of Job, is probably the oldest book in the Bible, and is the book which most frequently mentions the constellations of stars. Job refers to two of the signs of the zodiac: Taurus, distinguished by the Pleiades, and Scorpio, referred to as "the Chambers of the South" in the King James Version. Three other constellations are mentioned: Orion, the Bear, and Hydra, the crooked serpent.

If the writings of Job date from as early as 2000 B.C., at which time the zodiac (Mazzaroth) and the constellations were well known, then even Biblical evidence points to their greater antiquity. The word zodiac comes from the Greek zodiakos, meaning A Circle. It is often assumed that the connection is with animals (living creatures, from the Greek Zoë, to live, and in English zoo, etc.). However, the root meaning of zodiakos has nothing to do with living creatures, but instead comes from a primitive root zoad, denoting A Way or A Path or Going by Steps. In this connection it is used of the way along which the sun appears to move through the stars in the course of twelve months. This course is repeated every year as the apparent position of the sun returns to almost the exact spot that it occupied on the same date a year before. So the path through the sky in which the sun travels (or appears to travel) is called the zodiac and is divided into twelve segments. Each of these twelve segments is marked by a group of stars which is easily recognized. These twelve groups of stars (constellations) have names that are familiar to most people and are known as the signs of the zodiac: Gemini, Aquarius, Leo, etc.

Aries (Ram): March 21–April 19
Taurus (Bull): April 20–May 20
Gemini (Twins): May 21–June 20
Cancer (Crab): June 21–July 22
Leo (Lion): July 23–Aug. 22
Virgo (Virgin): Aug. 23–Sept. 22
Libra (Scales): Sept. 23–Oct. 22
Scorpio (Scorpion): Oct. 23–Nov. 21
Sagittarius (Archer): Nov. 22–Dec. 21
Capricorn (Goat): Dec. 22–Jan. 19
Aquarius (Water Bearer): Jan. 20–Feb. 18
Pisces (Fish): Feb. 19–March 20

The Egyptians and the Babylonians kept track of the year by observing the stars that were in the sky where the sun appeared (Helio Rising).

They divided the year in to 12 parts because their number base was 12 or 60 and there are 12 moon cycles in a year. They had the 12 parts each of 30 days and a partial month of 5 days. They divided the part of the sky where the sun rose into 12 parts to represent the 12 parts of year. They assigned the group of stars names and pictures, now called constellations and together form the Zodiac.

When the Sun first arose in a constellation, it was said to be entering the constellation. Basically, it is starting the next month of the year. However, the earth has a little wobble in its axis and this became inaccurate over the centuries. Now if we used the same zodiac and looked to see where the sun rises we would see that the sun has shifted 2 constellations. It is 2 months off. Yet astrologers still use the old calendar (zodiac) to cast horoscopes.

Our names for the constellations came from the Latin, who got it from the Arabs, who got it from the Babylonians. Many of the star names and the measurement system used to map the heaven still have their Arabic names. For example, Betelgeuse means "arm pit" (of the giant) referring to the what we call the shoulder of the constellation Orion.

Native Americans and other ethnic groups also recognize the zodiac and have their own names for them.

The very oldest star names are ancient Egyptian: Sirius [derived from the ancient god Osirus] and Thuban [the Pole Star four thousand years ago]. While a few star names survive, the system of Egyptian constellations were absorbed or lost by the constellations which the Greeks created. Hipparcos [for whom we named the modern star mapping satellite] invented a "scientific" Zodiac, grouping stars in units of 30 degrees each about 140 BC. The Romans renamed the Zodiac based not on logic but how they appeared. It was also the Romans who named most of the constellations visible in the northern hemisphere. These systems became accepted as fact. Claudius Ptolomy, a Greek working in Rome during the second century writer of The Major Systems of Astronomy" was so influential that no major European astronomical texts were written for a millennia until Alfonso X of Spain neglected his duties as the king to go star gazing in the 13th century AD.

Each of the twelve signs pictorially represents a prophetic event in relation to the unfolding story the history of the world. For example, the first sign is Virgo. This group of stars is associated with the picture of a woman with some ears of wheat in one hand and a branch in the other hand. The prophetic event portrayed in relation to salvation is the Seed of the woman who was to come, and is connected with the first prophecy of the Savior, in Genesis 3:15: "And I will put enmity between thee [the serpent] and the woman, and between thy seed and her Seed; it shall bruise thy head and thou shalt bruise His heel." Thus in all of the signs a pictorial illustration and a prophetic event are linked to each constellation. Please keep in mind that the star pattern of Virgo does not necessarily look like a woman to the observer, but is associated with the picture of a woman with the ears of wheat.

Every ancient culture with any knowledge or tradition concerning the stars recognizes the same twelve star groups and the same names or meanings of names. Examine the star knowledge of the ancients wherever you will-in China, India, Babylonia, Persia, Egypt, Israel, Greece, Rome, Scandinavia, or Central America--and everywhere the same constellations are identified and associated with the identical or similar meanings and names.

The only explanation is that there was one original Source who identified the constellations with their meanings before the dispersion of the peoples of the earth. . They are understood, however, only if they are seen in their proper order. Since they form a circle, the problem is in knowing where to start and to finish. A comparison of the prophecies in the heavens with the prophecies in the Bible clearly shows that the starting point is the divine promise concerning the Seed of the woman (Genesis 3:15). The ending point coincides with the climax of Scripture in the triumph of the Lion of the tribe of Judah (Revelation 5:5).The promise of the Seed in the first book of the Bible is seen in the constellation Virgo. The promise of the triumphant Lion, seen in the last book of the Bible, is displayed in Leo. So the outline begins with Virgo and ends with Leo. Confirmation of this is found in one of the very old zodiacs dating back to 2000 B.C. or before. It is called the zodiac of Dendereh and was found on the ceiling of the portico of the temple of Esneh in Egypt. In this zodiac there is placed between the signs of Virgo and Leo a picture of the Sphinx. The Sphinx (with the head of a woman and the tail of a lion) confirms the starting and the finishing points for the zodiac. Many scholars think that this was in fact the main purpose of the Sphinx and thus solves its "riddle."

In ancient times there were more constellations recognized than the twelve signs of the zodiac. Associated with each of the twelve were three other signs called decans. The word decan means A Part, indicating that they belong to the sign and that their message is a part of that sign's message. Thus there were forty-eight original constellations in all (twelve signs, with three decans belonging to each). The prophetic story of the heavens is told out by these forty-eight constellations. The meanings of the decans complement the basic meanings of the signs to which they belong.

As the pageant of history is revealed, two great persons are in the spotlight. One is the adversary, "that old serpent, the devil." He is introduced by a number of names and symbolical representations. The snake or serpent is prominent in three large constellations: Draco, Serpens,and Hydra. He is also shown as the enemy in Lepus, as the sea-monster in Cetus, and as the scorpion in Scorpio. He is always the enemy. His evil designs seem to prevail until ultimately he is crushed and defeated by the One who" through death ... might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil; and deliver them who ... were ... subject to bondage" (Hebrews 2:14-15).

In Christian culture, every one of the twelve signs Jesus is glorified by the Holy Spirit, who "garnished the heavens" (Job 26:13). The "Seed of the woman" in Virgo is the Redeemer who paid the required price in Libra. He is seen enduring the suffering of death in Scorpio and as the triumphant Conqueror in Sagittarius.. He is the Waterman pouring out blessings, He is the Lamb, He is the Ox, He is the Lion, etc. Truly "the heavens declare the glory of God."

Alice Bailey says this about the stars:

A further factor in cyclic computation lies in the effect of the following stars and constellations upon our system and upon any particular scheme within the system:

The Great Bear.
The Little Bear.
The Pole Star, especially where our planet is concerned.
The Pleiades.
The constellation of Capricorn.

The various constellations and stars of the Zodiac. [796]

The mystery is hidden in esoteric astrology, and until the subject of energy working through the etheric body, of radioactivity, and of the transmutation of all bodies from a lower state into a higher is better comprehended, the true mystery of the "influence" of these various bodies upon each other will remain at its present stage - an unrevealed secret. If the radiatory effect of a human being or of a group of human beings upon each other is as yet practically an unknown thing from the standpoint of practical science, so the occult effect of these greater forms upon each other remains unknown. Science recognizes certain effects, leading and tending to the general coherence of the universe, just as the general laws of the social order among men are theoretically apprehended, but the true scientific realization of energy-radiations emanating from the etheric bodies of all these suns and groups of suns, and from all these planets and groups of planets is little understood. Their atomic activity is recognized, but that department of their being, which finds its correspondence in "animal magnetism" in man, is little realized, while the even more potent factor of the magnetic radiation of their astral bodies is totally uncalculated, nor is it admitted. All these factors have to be allowed for in any consideration of the factor of time and cycles, and the true esoteric knowledge is not to be gained by the study of figures by the lower mind. It comes as the result of the intuition and is stimulated at initiation.



Has anyone ever asked you what sign you are, or said they didn’t get along with someone because they were a Sagittarius? Good morning/afternoon honorable judges, special guests, members of the faculty and fellow students. My name is Catherine and today I’d like to welcome you to the world of horoscopes. I’m sure many of you have a vague idea of what horoscopes are. In the newspaper you can usually find a small section with predictions of the day, week, or month for each sign. You may think that it’s all a bunch of bologna but that’s not the whole picture. Your horoscope or sign of the zodiac can actually tell you more about your personality than your future. What you may believe comes very close to the mark but it doesn’t include every aspect of horoscopes or a more familiar term, astrology. Today I plan to introduce you to many aspects of astrology including the signs of the zodiac, their history, and also an insight into another form of astrology.

In Western astrology, the horoscope is divided into twelve signs; Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces. These twelve signs are also divided into elements and qualities. The elements are fire, earth, air, and water. The qualities are cardinal, fixed and mutable.

Your sign, element, and quality, among other things can determine quite a bit about your personality. Each sign is dominated by one or two of the heavenly spheres present in our Solar System, the planets, the Sun and the Moon. Your planet along with your date, place, and hour of birth all affect your personality and outlook on life.

Horoscopes do not only determine personality types but affect nature as well. Surprisingly enough, you can acquire tables indicating the best dates for fishing and gardening. Also in conjunction with the cycles of the Moon you can determine your lucky numbers.

All of this is really only half of astrology. The other is predictions. These are what you find in the newspaper and in magazines. You may have noticed that some of the messages differ. What you must take into consideration is that each of these are the interpretations of the zodiac by the astrologer. Each astrologer may take different meanings from their charts and also emphasize certain points while leaving out others. Most of us have discovered that on the occasion when we read our horoscopes, it usually has little to do with the course of the day until we unravel the riddle of the stars.

What I have spoken about so far is based on the Western interpretation of a zodiac based on a solar calendar. On the other side of the planet where many countries like China work on a lunar calendar, the system of the horoscope is some what different.

Oriental astrology has their twelve signs; The Rat, The Ox, The Tiger, The Rabbit, The Dragon, The Snake, The Horse, The Sheep, The Monkey, The Rooster, The Dog, and The Boar. Instead of governing the cycles of the moon as do Western Signs, the Oriental signs govern mainly the years and hours. This year, 1996, is the year of the Rat. The Oriental years I’m talking about are Lunar years; which do not start on January 1st. These years have a different starting date each year which is usually in February.

These horoscopes include the predictions and the personalities similar to Western horoscopes. They mention your personality based on the year and hour of your birth, along with your element (the elements are fire, metal, wood, water, and earth). They also include how you will act during the different years.

This basically sums up my knowledge on how horoscopes work. Now for their history. Astrology was invented in Babylonia but was carried off to different parts of the world where different but similar forms developed. The earliest dated horoscope was made in 409 B.C.E. By the fall of the Roman Empire, astrology lost its common place in the west but still had popularity in East. In the 12th century horoscopes once again gained popularity in the West but lost it again at the end of the 17th century. Now horoscopes are considered nonsense by most educated people.

Well, there you have it. Horoscopes in their entirety. I’ve spoken about their history, the signs of the zodiac, and the not-so-well-known Oriental Horoscopes. I hope you have enjoyed my oral and I also hope you have become more interested in the fascinating science of astrology. Thank you.

If you zoom past the Virgo cluster and continue toward the north celestial pole for several billion light-years, you will come across a collection of odd galaxies that seems to shine only in X rays. Are these galaxies so far away that their visible light didn’t make it through the long, dusty voyage across the universe? Or are these actually protogalaxies, so young that they comprise only a central supermassive black hole and a swirl of hot X-ray-emitting gas in an era before starlight?

The verdict is still out. But whatever these objects are, we weren’t able to see them at all with any instrument before the launch of NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory in July 1999.

With an imaging capability at least 30 times sharper than any X-ray telescope before it, and four of the smoothest, cleanest mirrors ever made, Chandra is the 190-proof intoxicant putting hair on the chest of X-ray astronomy. Scientists at long last have a superior tool to study the structure and dynamics of the most energetic and enigmatic phenomena in the universe, such as black holes, supernovae, and neutron stars.

Chandra is the X-ray astronomer’s version of the Hubble Space Telescope, designed to provide detail of objects and events that have remained shaded in mystery for decades. One of Chandra’s first images, in fact, revealed what may be the long sought neutron star in the heart of the Cassiopeia A supernova remnant, some 11,000 light-years away. Radio, optical, and earlier X-ray telescopes had searched for this source to no avail.

NASA promised that the Chandra mission would be tantamount to finally seeing the universe through a good pair of X-ray eyeglasses. Chandra’s first year has proven this analogy lame. Toss the eyeglasses; Chandra grabs you by the arm and takes you to the scene of the crime.

How Stars Burn

Fire-folk sitting in the air. Diamond wells. Elf eyes. The poet’s images of the stars beckon us into the forest of the night, away from the security of the campfire or the porch light, into the darkness where 10,000 silver flecks are scattered across the black celestial cloths. We look up into the darkness as if into a mirror and see, as often as not, a human face: Orion, Cassiopeia, Perseus, Andromeda. The human mind has a powerful inclination to see the familiar in the unfamiliar, perhaps related to the tendency of the newborn child to instinctively fix on the mother’s face. What we do not want to see is the yawning inhuman chasm, the fearful solitude, the infinite multiplicity of worlds. However, what we wish for and what we know to be true are two different things, and Bruno and Galileo paid the price when their contemporaries failed to make the distinction. Galileo turned his telescope to the flowing river of the Milky Way and saw a myriad of faint lights glittering beyond the limits of human vision. Those uncountable suns were the first hint that the universe was not designed for human eyes

"The power of the visible is the invisible," said the poet Marianne Moore. The stars are other Suns, other fiery globes vastly larger than the Earth. All of this was known with confidence by the end of the nineteenth century. The distances to the stars had been measured, their true brightnesses determined. The Sun, it turned out, is quite an ordinary star—middling sized, middling temperature, a one-million-mile-wide sphere of gas, yellow hot, seething and churning with energy. Some stars are bigger and hotter than the Sun; some are smaller, cooler, less bright. Furthermore, by century’s end, geologists and biologists had determined that the Earth was tens of millions, perhaps hundreds of millions, of years old, and that its surface environment had not changed dramatically during all that time. Among the oldest geologic formations on Earth are rocks composed of marine sediments laid down on the floors of ancient oceans. If the Sun had been hotter during the planet’s youth, the oceans would have boiled away; if cooler, surface water would have frozen solid. The constancy of the fossil record also suggests a stable habitat for life. No matter how you thought about it, the evidence was unmistakable: The Sun has been burning rather steadily ever since the planet’s birth, pouring into space colossal quantities of heat and light.

And the problem—the biggest problem in science at the end of the nineteenth century—was this: No one had a clue about the source of the Sun’s energy. If the Sun was nothing but coal and oxygen, it would have long since burned to embers. Moreover, the Sun was manifestly not made of coal and oxygen; the light from the Sun has spectral characteristics of hydrogen and helium. Helium is an inert gas; no energy available there. Hydrogen? Chemists could think of no way to get energy from hydrogen in the absence of appreciable quantities of other elements. What about gravity? Could the squeeze of gravity keep the Sun hot? Physicists did the calculations; if gravity were squeezing out energy at the Sun’s present rate of energy production, the Sun would have shrunk noticeably even in historic times. The bottom line: No source of energy known to late-nineteenth-century scientists was adequate to explain starlight.

One evening in 1902, Marie and Pierre Curie put their children to bed and slipped away from their house in Paris. They walked through the still-busy streets to their laboratory, where for four years Marie had labored mightily to extract a fraction of a gram of a new element from tons of pitchblende ore from Czechoslovakia purchased with their meager savings. No government grants were available in those days for Curie’s research; no graduate students were there to help her with the backbreaking work. She rolled up her sleeves and spent her precious savings with the purest of motives: curiosity. She was convinced that an undiscovered element was hidden in those heaps of ore, like a needle in a haystack, and she was determined to find it. As she labored, she had wondered what the element she sought would look like. Would it be gray? Black? Shiny? Dull? The answer was unlike anything she might have guessed. As husband and wife entered the laboratory, Marie whispered, "Don’t light the lamps." She sat in a chair before the table that bore a sample of the new element in its glass container. The precious element glowed with a spontaneous light! "Look, look," Marie murmured ecstatically, as she gazed at the pale-blue glimmering. Her daughter Eve later called it "the evening of the glowworms."

Marie Curie did not know the source of the mysterious light that came from the stuff she named radium (from its radiance). Here was apparently inert matter that shed an apparently inexhaustible light. Soon her new element was all the rage, and Marie Curie was famous. People daubed their bodies with radium salts and danced like fireflies in darkened nightclubs. They sipped radium-laced cocktails that glowed in the dark. In clock factories, hundreds of young women painted radium salts onto the numerals of dials so that time could be read in the dark, moistening the tips of their brushes with their tongues. Such beauty! Nature’s fuelless fire, undying light. As Marie Curie sat with her husband in the darkened laboratory on that evening in 1902, she could not have dreamed that the light from radium had the same source as the light of the stars. Or that the beautiful glow that emerged from the glass container was accompanied by deadly invisible radiations.

The next piece of the puzzle fell into place in 1905. Albert Einstein, twenty-six years old, in Zurich, published three papers that shook physics to its foundations and won him a reputation as a whiz kid of European physics. One of those papers, titled "On the Electrodynamics of Moving Bodies," has been called the most famous scientific paper in history. It was the beginning of the theories of special and general relativity that Einstein elucidated over the following decade. A supplement to this paper stated for the first time the equivalence of matter and energy, expressed in the famous equation E=mc2 (energy equals mass times the speed of light squared). Einstein wondered if this might be the source of radium’s pale light, and his guess turned out to be accurate: In the spontaneous fissioning (breaking apart) of radium nuclei, mass is converted into pure luminous energy. The key to the apparently inexhaustible nature of nuclear energy lies in the factor c2. The velocity of light is a very large number—186,000 miles per second; squared, an even larger number. A tiny bit of vanished mass yields a lot of energy. The radium in Marie Curie’s glass vials glows, and glows, and glows, and the diminishment of its mass is undetectable.

No sooner had Einstein published his equation than astronomers began to wonder if the Sun’s prodigious output of heat and light might be due to a conversion of matter into energy. For light elements, such as hydrogen and helium, energy is released when nuclei fuse. Perhaps in the fiery furnace of a star’s interior, hydrogen nuclei are fused into helium nuclei in a reaction that converts matter to energy. Perhaps that factor c2 keeps the Sun shining steadily for hundreds of millions of years. But first, a lot of work needed to be done to confirm this intuition. Experiments had to be performed to demonstrate the transmutation of elements and the consequent diminishment of mass. Marie Curie’s daughter and son-in-law, Irene and Frédéric Joliet-Curie, played an important part in these investigations. In January 1934, as Marie lay dying of radiation-induced leukemia, her fingertips crumbling away from radiation poisoning, Irene and Frédéric showed her the first experimental evidence for the artificial production of radioactive energy. 

Before the end of the decade, the riddle of the stars had been solved.

No stars visible to the naked eye tease us more with the mystery of stellar life than the Pleiades, the unique cluster of faint stars we watched in the winter sky. If these stars were scattered at random across the sky, no one would take notice. They are together because they are young—only tens of millions of years old—and together they attract universal attention. The six stars you see with your unaided eye are only the brightest stars in the cluster. Binoculars reveal dozens of stars; telescopes show hundreds. Long-exposure photographs reveal an even more dazzling view: The brightest of the Pleiades are tangled in wisps of glowing gas. The entire gathering of stars is nested in a faint nebula, made incandescent by the light of the hottest blue stars. We see them still entangled in the swaddling clothes of their origin, a gassy nebula that gravity has gathered into a sisterhood of compact spheres.

The gassy environs of the Pleiades is the nearest of thousands of star-birthing regions in the arms of the Milky Way Galaxy. The cluster is 400 light-years distant, which places it in our own neighborhood of the Galaxy, but still far enough away to reduce the brightest Pleiades to near naked-eye invisibility. (If the cluster were as close as Sirius, we could read at night by the light of its hot blue stars.) If one had looked into this part of the sky 50 million years ago, one would have seen not stars but only a cloud of gas. The gas was mostly molecular hydrogen, although helium was prominent, and there were trace amounts of many other molecules—altogether thousands of molecules per cubic centimeter. This gas was a million billion times less dense than the air we breathe, but within the vast expanse of the cloud there was sufficient matter to make one thousand suns. And always, as everywhere in the universe, gravity was struggling to pull the stuff of the cloud together.

Let’s watch as a star is born. A dense knot of gas within the cloud—with a mass of one billion billion billion tons—begins to collapse, squeezed by gravity into an ever smaller sphere. The temperature of the sphere soars, especially at its center. Molecules of paired hydrogen atoms disengage, and then, as the temperature rises, the components of the hydrogen atoms—the proton and electron—are ripped apart. The core of the newly forming star is a blazing sea of protons and electrons. Protons have positive electric charge, and like charges repel. Within the sea of darting particles, the protons keep their distance from one another, approaching and dashing away like bees in a swarm. (The electrons too are dashing about on their own.) But as gravity squeezes further and the temperature continues to climb, the darting protons, moving ever more speedily, get closer and closer before they are mutually repelled. As the temperature at the core reaches 10 million degrees, protons approach near enough for a powerful but short-range nuclear force to come into play. Instead of being repelled, protons are pulled together in a powerful nuclear grip. One proton flings off its positive charge and turns into a neutron (and also sheds a ghostlike particle called a neutrino; more about this later), so that soon the core of the aborning star is abuzz with proton-neutron pairs. Two proton-neutron pairs are welded together by the nuclear force into a helium nucleus, with four nuclear particles. The bottom line: Four hydrogen nuclei are fused into a single nucleus of helium. And here’s the wonderful thing. The helium nucleus weighs about 1 percent less than the total weight of the four particles out of which it was made. Mass has disappeared from the universe! Stuff has vanished. In its place: pure energy.

A star is born. The pressure of newly released energy pushes out from the core, resisting the crush of gravity. The contraction stops with gravity and fusion in exquisite balance. The star regulates its own burning like the thermostat on your furnace. If gravity gets the upper hand, the temperature at the core rises, releasing more energy to push outward. If fusion gets the upper hand, the star expands, diminishing the squeeze of gravity and lowering the temperature at the core. Every second at the center of a Sun-like star, 660 million tons of hydrogen are converted into 655 million tons of helium by the process known as thermonuclear fusion. The missing 5 million tons of mass is turned into an amount of energy equal to the missing mass times the speed of light squared. The rate of conversion is prodigious, but the amount of hydrogen in a star is virtually inexhaustible. A star like the Sun can fuse hydrogen for 10 billion years—until it has a core of helium and death begins. The riddle of the stars is answered. The light of the stars is nuclear energy, the same light that Marie Curie observed in her darkened laboratory on "the evening of the glowworms."

The gassy nebula that gave birth to the Pleiades was gathered by gravity into hundreds of stars. Some of those stars, the hot blue giants, are many times more massive than the Sun; to resist the greater crush of gravity, these stars must fuse hydrogen at a rate that will exhaust their core fuel in only tens of millions of years. The smallest stars in the cluster, the red dwarfs, are less massive than the Sun and need barely fuse hydrogen at all to hold up their own weight; these stars will live for 100 billion years. The hottest, brightest stars in the Pleiades will die explosively sometime within the next millions of years. (None have died yet, or we would surely have observed the shatters.) The coolest stars will live virtually forever. Meanwhile, the Pleiades will drift apart. The cluster will disperse. The longer-lived stars of the cluster will take their inconspicuous places among the trillion denizens of our galaxy. Our own Sun may have once been part of a newborn cluster like the Pleiades. If so, it has long since left the nest and abandoned its sibling stars.

The energy produced by fusion at the center of the Sun requires several million years to make its way up through the half-million miles of overlying gas, absorbed and reemitted many times along the way. At the surface it is released as heat and light, which zips across the 93 million miles of space between Sun and Earth in eight minutes. By the time the energy reaches Earth, all evidence of its source has been erased. But there is a way we can look directly into the center of the Sun, and see what is happening there almost as it happens. The key lies in the insubstantial neutrino (which, as you’ll recall, is released as two protons fuse and one turns into a neutron.) Neutrinos are strange little particles. They are about as close to being nothing as something can be and still be something. They have no charge and possibly no mass. However, they carry energy, and they zip along at the speed of light. Because they are wisps of almost nothingness, they interact with ordinary matter hardly at all. Most of the neutrinos created at the center of the Sun fly straight up through the Sun’s overlying layers. Within seconds of their birth they are launched into space, and eight minutes later some of them collide with the Earth. Go outside and face the Sun (don’t look at it directly!). Feel the heat on your skin. Sense the light on your closed eyelids. The heat and light were created at the Sun’s core millions of years ago. But as you stand there in the sunlight, trillions of neutrinos fly through your body every second, neutrinos created at the center of the Sun only eight minutes earlier. You are utterly transparent to these tenuous particles; they stream through you unimpeded. For that matter, the planet Earth is transparent; at night the solar neutrinos fall upon the other side of the planet, whisk right through the body of the Earth, and penetrate your body from underneath the bed! Can you believe this? Can you comprehend that every second of our lives we are blown through with a wind of neutrinos from the Sun? What was that line of Marianne Moore’s? "The power of the visible is the invisible."

Neutrinos are hard to catch, but not impossible. At several places on Earth—in the United States, Canada, Japan, and Italy—vast underground chambers of pure water have been set up to catch neutrinos. Every now and then a neutrino hits a proton or neutron in a water molecule and is absorbed, releasing a tiny flash of light. The pitch-dark chambers are watched with thousands of sensitive electronic eyes, and the flashes of faint light are recorded by computers. As strange as it seems, these underground chambers are telescopes that look into the heart of the Sun, seeing within minutes what is happening there. So far, the number of neutrinos snagged by the detectors is less than what theoretical astronomers have predicted. No one knows why. Perhaps some part of our theory of what is happening at the center of the Sun is wrong, or perhaps we don’t yet fully understand the nature of neutrinos and how they interact with matter. The scientists are busy; the answer will come. Meanwhile, they know that their neutrino telescopes are working. In 1987, a star blew up in the southern sky, a supernova, the first relatively nearby supernova in centuries. Briefly it blazed with a glorious light. At the same time that the supernova’s light reached Earth, the first large neutrino detectors (in a cavern under Lake Erie and in Japan) sparked with flashes of light. Across tens of thousands of light-years, these elusive particles carried the signature of a dying star.

The atomic nucleus was intensely studied by physicists during the early part of the twentieth century. They knew they were chasing the answer to the biggest question in science: Why is the universe filled with light? By the spring of 1939, the nuclear fusion reaction that makes stars shine had been identified by Hans Bethe, Carl von Weizsächer, Charles Critchfield and others. It was also recognized that when the nuclei of certain atoms of uranium and plutonium fission, neutrons are emitted that can collide with other uranium and plutonium nuclei and cause them to split. Under the proper circumstances, a chain reaction appeared to be possible—a vast amount of energy suddenly released from a small amount of matter.

American physicists asked Albert Einstein to write a letter to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt describing recent fission studies of Enrico Fermi and Leo Szilard. "It is conceivable," Einstein wrote, "that extremely powerful bombs of this type may be constructed." Roosevelt reacted decisively. The Manhattan Project was initiated to produce sufficient quantities of uranium and plutonium to make a nuclear weapon. At dawn on the morning of July 16, 1945, in the New Mexico desert, the terrestrial nuclear age was born. Marie Curie’s pale glow was turned into a blaze of light like one thousand Suns. A seething mushroom cloud rose heavenward from the desert floor. Within months, the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki had been obliterated and a global war ended.

A chain-reaction fission bomb—the type of bomb that destroyed the two Japanese cities, will explode spontaneously if a so-called critical mass is assembled. You will recall that it takes extremely high temperatures (such as those at the centers of stars) to fuse hydrogen nuclei into helium, because of the mutual repulsion of protons. Fission bombs can provide Sun-like temperatures here on Earth. It wasn’t long before physicists used a fission bomb to fuse hydrogen. On November 1, 1952, a hydrogen fusion bomb was exploded at Eniwetok atoll in the Pacific Ocean; this bomb was many times more powerful than the weapons that obliterated Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The power of the stars was brought down to Earth.

The mushroom clouds of those terrible explosions overarched the twentieth century, casting a shadow over exciting intellectual developments of the first half of the century and nearly scaring us to death during the second half. The latter gloom was somewhat ameliorated by the promise of peaceable uses of nuclear energy. ("The Atom: Our Obedient Servant" was the title of one magazine article in the 1950s.) But the bright promise of harnessing the atomic nucleus to provide cheap, inexhaustible energy mostly evaporated with the accidents at Three Mile Island and Chernobyl. And the collapse of the Soviet Union diminished the likelihood of global thermonuclear war. Many nations still have the capacity to cause nuclear devastation, but all in all nuclear physics is not so much on our minds as we begin a new century.

The nuclear age left a frightening legacy. Dozens of those young women who painted radium salts onto the dials of clocks, tipping their brushes with their tongues, suffered cancers of the mouth and jaw. Marie Curie died of radiation poisoning. And the planet is poisoned by radioactive wastes from nuclear power plants and the making of bombs. On the upside, we now understand what makes the stars shine and why life on Earth is possible. "Let there be light," says the Bible. It is a nuclear light. Wonderful and terrible.
