Bust of Roman Emperor Domitian (r. , CE). (Wikimedia Commons) Luke was likely composed during Domitian's reign. The four canonical gospels—Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John—were all composed within the Roman Empire between 70 and C.E (± five to ten years) as biographies of Jesus of g: Astrophysical.

    ROLAND H. BAINTON (), a specialist in Reformation history, was for forty-two years Titus Street Professor of Ecclesiastical History at Yale, and he continued writing well into his twenty years of retirement. He wore his scholarship lightly and had a lively, readable style. His most popular book, Here I Stand, sold more than a million /5(). Astrophysics is the branch of astronomy that employs the principles of physics and chemistry "to ascertain the nature of the astronomical objects, rather than their positions or motions in space". Among the objects studied are the Sun, other stars, galaxies, extrasolar planets, the interstellar medium and the cosmic microwave background. Emissions from these objects are examined across all.

The astronomical context of life includes a bath of photons of electromagnetic radiation and energetic particles that affect life. Optical photons are an important source of energy.

The radiation from Earth’s central star provides the bulk of the free energy necessary for the maintenance of its biosphere, through the intricate mechanisms of photosynthesis.

Not only it is the main source of structures in a universe that, without it, would be only a faint soup of gases, but it is the main engine for creating stars and worlds, to make these planets inhabitable and to impose structural and functional limits on the organisms that.
