Boas Breathe & Squeeze and Binary Stars with Planets | Stars, Cells, and God

Join Hugh Ross and Jeff Zweerink as they discuss new discoveries taking place at the frontiers of science that have theological and philosophical implications, as well as new discoveries that point to the reality of God’s existence.

Boas Breathe & Squeeze Prey

How do boa constrictors avoid suffocating themselves while suffocating their prey? The secret lies in their rib cage.

Binary Stars with Planets

For a long time, the conventional wisdom was that planets couldn’t form around binary stars because of the gravitational disruptions of the binary orbit. However, astronomers have found many planets in binary star systems. We look at one particular system to demonstrate that, while we can find planets in binary systems, numerous factors make these planets uninhabitable.

Hugh and Jeff discuss these important topics in this episode of Stars, Cells, and God.
