Do You Know- Reaching Absolute Zero Temperature is as difficult as attaining Speed of Light

What is the lowest temperature that you have experienced? Our body temperature is 37 degree Celsius. Room temperature is lower than that which is 25 degree Celsius. Fridges are generally at four degree Celsius and ice forms at zero degree Celsius. Can temperature go below zero degree Celsius? Yes. Temperatures below zero degree Celsius are generally measured in Kelvin scale, where 273 K is equal to zero degree Celsius. Temperature of liquid nitrogen is approximately 70 Kelvin and liquid helium is approximately 4 kelvin. As we decrease the temperature, there are many curious phenomena that happen which have significant effects

Secret behind the formation of High Speed Winds on Neptune

Neptune is the eighth planet in the solar system if we consider its distance from the Sun. Neptune is also the fourth largest and third heaviest planet in our solar system. It is seventeen times heavier than earth. Atmosphere of Neptune is very thick and most of it is composed of gas. Due to this reason, Neptune is considered as a gas giant. Neptune’s atmosphere mostly consists of hydrogen and helium gas and due to the presence of small amounts of methane, the planet appears blue in color. Galileo illustrated the presence of Neptune near Jupiter in his drawings but

THE DAY THE TAP RAN DRY

CHAPTER 1 – THE VILLAGE  Once, there was a village named Rampur in South India near the foot of the hills. It was a scenic village that was picturesque marked by green paddy fields, thatched huts, livestock, boulders, temples for the devout and a Government school for the children. It was not densely populated and the families lived very close by, knowing each other by name. It would get quite hot during the summer with the sun beating down and the temperature would cool down a bit during the winter providing much needed relief to everyone. Farming was the main occupation

Living on Earth and being in Deep Space – The Gravity of the Situation

Picture Credits: Warner Bros. (Gravity, 2013)   Ever wondered? Most of the Universe is pretty empty — that’s why we call it “space” — Lol, sounds literal, right? But most of us have not thought about it that way. If I were to magically transport you someplace randomly in the cosmos, the chances are you’d be a million light years from the nearest substantial object. Evolving on a planet has warped our sense of physics. If I throw an object away from me, it comes back. That’s bizarre! It should just keep going, moving away from me at a constant

Interesting Facts about Mars- The Red Planet

Mars is the fourth planet in our solar system if we count from Sun. It is also the second smallest planet in solar system and it appears red in color due to the presence of Iron oxide on its surface. Mars is sometimes referred to as the ‘Red Planet’ and it gets its name from the Greek god of war. It is very difficult to observe mars, even with very large telescopes, because of its small size. Mars is much smaller in size as compared to our planet but its surface area is approximately same as that of Earth. Gravitational

Fundamental building blocks of our Universe

For many years we believed that matter is made up atoms. Atoms were thought to be the fundamentally indivisible particles and building blocks of everything. But then in 1897 J.J Thompson discovered electrons in a cathode ray experiment. After that, many atom models were proposed and new particles such as protons and electrons were discovered. But later it was discovered that even protons and neutrons can be divided to even smaller particles known as quarks. Each time when a new particle was discovered, it led us to more questions. We always believed that there always was something incredible yet to

Unsolved Mysteries of Science

Scientific research has answered a number of questions that were unknown to humanity. We have studied about the very small things such as structure of atoms and also about enormous systems like the Milky Way. We created new machines which made our life easier. Science and engineering have been a boon to humanity and solved many mysteries. This article is not about such success stories but about the unknown mysteries. There are always something incredible things to be discovered. Here is a list of such unsolved mysteries in science. Protein folding Problem Proteins are polymers of amino acids and they

Swatchh Moon Abhiyan?

There are many things that I don’t like about we people; the humans. But I hate one most common character of ours. We humans have a bad tradition of leaving junk items wherever we go. If we go to mountain, ocean, forest… wherever we go we pollute that place by putting waste over there. One interesting fact is that, we have done this junk business even in the Moon…! Humans went to moon and polluted there also. Yes, there is poop on the Moon…! You might be familiar with the heroic Apollo space mission that has taken two humans to

Amazing facts about the “Dwarf ​​planet” Pluto

Which is the smallest planet in our solar system? If you had asked me this question before 2006, I would have said, Pluto. But now the answer is different, it’s Mercury. When scientists discovered Trans-Neptunian Objects (TNOs) of sizes similar to Pluto, they declared that Pluto cannot be considered as a planet anymore because of its similarities to TNOs. So, since 2006, Pluto has been considered as a ‘Dwarf planet’. But I don’t think Pluto would be sad about that. Pluto may no longer be considered as the smallest planet but will now be considered as the largest Trans-Neptunian Object
