You'll never believe what these scientists found in space!

A study published last month appears to suggest that our entire solar system is enclosed within a giant gas bubble.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The entire bubble is about 300 light years long (roughly 1,764,000,000,000,000 miles) and its walls are made of gas that is about one million degrees.
You can be a light in the darkness with "prayer and action."
Scientists call it the "Local Bubble" or the "local hot bubble" and say it is shaped a little like a peanut. The scientists indicate that it was formed by a series of supernovas, massive explosions in space caused by dying stars, roughly ten million years ago.
This bubble was first thought to exist in the 1970s and 1980s. Scientists were looking for the gasses, dust, ions and more that fill space, but found nothing, as if we were living in an empty hole. Sensors found x-ray radiation coming from all directions and using this, scientists hypothesized that we were living in a bubble.
Still, some scientists in recent years began to doubt the existence of the Local Bubble model, claiming that the radiation could be explained as passing solar wind stealing electrons as it passed through space.
Scientists from the University of Miami in Coral Gables picked up the gauntlet of defending the Local Bubble model, and developed a sensor to measure charge exchange radiation, firing it out of Earth's atmosphere atop a NASA rocket launched in 2012.
Looking at the data taken from the detector, scientists determined that only 40% of background radiation was actually emanating from within our solar system.
The rest, they say, has to be coming from the searing gaseous walls of the big bubble we live in.
