Dabawalas of Mumbai

DAbbawala

I am searching for someone who would deliver home made food to my husband and children. Since I am all tired up in getting up in morning and preparing lunch for everyone. You may think its impossible to find such a man and am getting crazy. No I am not , if I am a native of Mumbai, India, I would have got not one but many dabbawalas who would do my job..

OMG!!! Did u hear what NASA Just said…????

Chandrayaan 1

India’s first unmanned flight to the moon Chandrayaan-1, was launched on 22, 2008 from Sriharikota. It was supposed to orbit the moon for two years. The mission went good for about 312 days before the scientists lost all kind of contact in August 2009. The mission had been declared over after scientists tried their best but failed to find any traces of the satellite. But here is the good or I may say the best.. Chandrayaan-1 is still orbiting the moon as NASA scientists have found by using a new ground-based radar technique. Continue reading “OMG!!! Did u hear what NASA Just said…????”

Is Smart Drugs Smart???

Student life has changed., They Substitute Smart Drugs for Cofee

Don’t be surprised if you see your children taking a pill before exam or before an interview??  Just as you might drink a cup of coffee to help you stay alert, they are turning to prescription drugs to boost academic performance. The pill, that they have taken, would instantly make them work harder, improve their brain function and make them much “smarter”. These are Performance-enhancing drugs or Smart Drugs!!! Not familiar??? Yes, its new way of youngsters to boost up their mind. Continue reading “Is Smart Drugs Smart???”

Apple Cidar Vinegar

An Apple A day keeps Doctor Away

Through the ages, vinegar has been used for various household and cooking purposes. In French, the word “vinegar” actually means “sour wine.” but how many of u know the benefits of vinegar…??? Vinegar is known to have anti-fungal abilities and to kill harmful bacteria and pathogens, so traditionally people used to clean their homes, bodies, and to fight off fungus from forming.

Congrats team ISRO….

PSLV-C37 blasting off from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota

Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has successfully launched the PSLV-37 rocket which put in to orbit a record 104 satellites from seven countries.This was ISRO’s first space mission for the year 2017, and the most complicated mission it has ever carried out. The mission is significant for the country as it enabled ISRO to test the capabilities for multiple launches of small satellites by its PSLV, which has a payload capacity of more than 1,500 kilos.

All eyes to ISRO…….. ISRO ROCKS AGAIN….

The PSLV-C37 blasting off from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in Sriharikota

India is all set to rule the space… Heard right?? With its mega-launch program on February 15, India will create history by launching a record 104 satellites, including 101 foreign ones, into the polar sun-synchronous orbit(SSO), about 500 km above the earth. The launch is expected to be a world record when it comes to the number of satellites put into orbit by a launch vehicle in a single mission, surpassing the 37 satellites launch record set by a Russian rocket on June 19, 2014.

How Zero G Planes Fly???

novespace-airbusa300

If you ever wished for weightlessness like astronauts, here is an easy way to feel it… Get into a Zero Gravity Plane. Zero Gravity Planes performs parabolic arcs to create a weightless environment allowing you to float, flip and soar as if you were in space. Parabolic flight or zero gravity flight is an aerobatic maneuver performed by an airplane that enables brief (15-25 sec) periods of near-zero-gravity. Astronauts feel weightless because their space shuttle is in a state of continuous free fall to the earth. If an astronaut on the space station drops a pen, it doesn’t look like it’s falling. That’s because they’re all falling together: the pen, the astronaut and the station. But they’re not falling towards Earth, they’re falling around it. Because they’re all falling at the same rate, objects inside of the station appear to float in a state we call “zero gravity” (0g), or more accurately microgravity (1×10-6g). Objects in a state of free fall are said to be weightless. The object’s mass is the same, but it would mark “0” on a scale. Eventhough your mass stays the same, weight varies depending on whether you are on Earth, the moon or in orbit. Gravitational force is a measurement of the acceleration due to gravity that causes weight. Zero gravity is a condition of weightlessness referring to the absence of a gravitational force (g-force or Gs). Continue reading “How Zero G Planes Fly???”

Meet the Longest-Lasting Battery in the World….

Oxford Electric Bell or Clarendon Dry Pile

Would you like to live a world in which you never have to charge your phone again. May be scientists inspired by this venerable scientific curiosity could help you… In the foyer of the Clarendon Laboratory in the University of Oxford lies an electric bell named as Oxford Electric Bell or Clarendon Dry Pile which has been ringing continuously since 176 years and has been recognised as the longest-lasting battery in the world.

New State Of Matter Is Here…

The Jahn–Teller effect, sometimes also known as Jahn–Teller distortion, describes the geometrical distortion of molecules and ions that is associated with certain electron configurations.

How many states of matter do you know about? It’s not just solids, liquids, gases, and maybe plasmas that we have to think about when we talk about the states of matter. Beyond these there’s an entire catalogue of matter alternatives: Bose–Einstein condensate, degenerate matter, supersolids/superfluids, quark-gluon plasma, etc. The difference is that all those alternatives are lab-created and don’t have much place out in the real world of nature. Researchers at Japan’s Tohoku University came up with an entirely new state of matter with an unusual combination of properties—insulator, superconductor, metal, magnet. The team, led by Kosmas Prassides, says they’ve created what’s called a Jahn-Teller metal by doping rubidium, a strange alkali metal element, into buckyballs, a pure carbon structure which has a spherical shape from a series of interlocking polygons.
