HIDDEN FIGURES OF THE SCIENCE WORLD

Published

on

THESE FIGURES WERE THE FIRST 
-TO classify the stars based on their temperature
-TO discover rapidly rotating neutron star  – (not first) but to work as a ‘computer’ in NASA
And many more major things ….
      Ok now let’s come down to the basic things these figures invented
-ICE CREAM MAKER
-AQUARIUM 
-DISHWASHER 
And the list goes on…
You may wonder who are these people. Maybe some of you might know about them. Before we processed, I want to share something with you

So, when I was in 10th grade my classmate asked a question. The question was “there are lots of topper girls in the school or around the world more than men but why in the scientific history we see and
learned only about the men who discovered or invented stuff?” this question triggers me and made us believe that its true and at that time I couldn’t answer him but now I know the correct answer to this question.  
 
THE LIST YOU READ ABOVE WAS ALL
DISCOVERED OR INVENTED BY WOMEN.

1.ANNIE JUMP CANNON

Annie Jump Cannon was born on
December 11, 1863. she was the eldest of three daughters born to Wilson cannon. she became a member of Harvard computers a group of women hired by Harvard Observatory director Edward C Pickering to complete the Hendry draper catalogue, with the goal of mapping and defining every star in the sky to a photographic magnitude of about 9. Not long after work began on the Draper Catalogue, a disagreement developed as to how to classify the stars. cannon started by examining the bright southern hemisphere stars. After absorption lines were understood in terms of stellar temperatures, her initial classification system was rearranged to avoid having to update star catalogues. she published her first catalogue of stellar spectra in 1901. In 1914, she was admitted as an honorary member of the Royal astronomical society.

2.KATHERINE JOHNSON


KATHERINE JOHNSON was born on august 26 1918, was an American mathematician and a NASA employee. In the 1950s, there were no computers like we have today. People had to solve hard math problems by themselves. They often used to add machines and rulers. These people were called “computers.” The NACA (NASA) hired women to work as computer.

 Early in her career, she was called a “computer. “her work was mainly to calculated trajectories, launch windows and emergency return paths. Johnson
and the other African-American women in the computing pool were required to work, eat, and use restrooms that were separate from those of their white peers. Their office was labelled as “Coloured Computers”. depict being discriminated.

President Barack Obama presented her with Presidential Medal of Freedom, one of 17 Americans so honoured on November 24, 2015. And many more awards.

Not only American but there were INDIAN gems too like
-ASIMA CHATTERJEE

Was first Indian female to earn
doctorate degree and was successful organic chemist of her time. She successfully developed anti-epileptic and anti-malarial drugs. Another outstanding contribution to the world of chemistry was her work on vinca alkaloids which
belong to Madagascar periwinkle plants. They are used in chemotherapy to help slow down the cancer cells from multiplying.


JANKI AMMAL

Was a renowned botanist and plant
cytologist who made significant contributions to genetics,evolution, phytogeography and ethnobotany.  She also worked on the cytogenetics of a range of plants and co-authored the chromosome atlas of cultivated plants. She was
awarded by Padma shri in 1977.

THE FIELD OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY HAD BEEN AN
OVERLY MALE DOMINATED AREA SINCE TIME IMMEMORIAL.
80s, 90s era was tough for women around the world. In those time females were considered as ‘delicate’ or we can say untaught. Only few of them were given freedom to think out of box. But a strong will and determination will never let a person to sit at one place let go their dreams, and so did the
all the women who are now remembered by everyone.

“SCIENCE IS A STREAM WHICH WILL NEVER LET PEOPLE STOP DREAMINGAND NOW IN TH RACE WOMEN ARE ALSO EQUIVALENT TO THE MEN”

Phenomenal Glitch within Cosmos.

Published

on

Yes, not being an atheist; there are various Phenomenal Glitches within our Universe. And, we are least bothered about them like we are not troubled that our Solar System is heading towards Sagittarius A, which is a Black Hole residing in the Centre of our Milky Way Galaxy; with the speed of 227 km per second. Wouldn’t this be a glitch for Humanity, yes, it will be? This is just a practical example as Science, especially Astronomy deals with proofs and experimental verification.

There is one more glitch that is affecting our ideas on Earth, it is our faith in God. Who saw these divine celestials, though many people claim on YouTube and every social media university that they saw The God. And, no one considers them except some extremists of every doctrine. Many professionals come to ‘Ancient Aliens’ show on History TV 18 channel, and yes! everyone there relates everything with Aliens and with Ancient Gods; who made The Great Pyramids? Gods; How mankind arose on Earth? (case of Panspermia, where human life came to Earth from cosmic carriers like asteroids), Gods.
Albert Einstein himself said, ‘Two things are infinite: the Universe and Human Stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.’

The existence of God is dicey in its term.
Who are those divine celestials? Will they help us if an asteroid will be going to hit us tomorrow and there is no possibility of us surviving?
Is it somewhat like Asgard, where Lord Odin will send Thor to save us? Yes, maybe because it is considered in Norse Mythology. And, many creatures and celestials of Norse Mythology are seen by many people around the terra.
I am not saying that religious sentiments are of no use, but instead of considering a specific God as Creator, we should respect and appreciate the supreme energy which is playing an essential role in administering the Universe and of course, we should rely on our acts because no one will help us until and unless we ourself motivate us to get our things done.

Several hypotheses are there for the beginning of our Universe and one widely recognized one is The Big Bang, so is this extreme natural phenomenon, a God?
Gods maybe are different, but their teachings are the same. God is not what is portrayed as a statue or icon, God is a sense of love, God is a sense of purity, God is a sense of peace. The problem of atheists isn’t God, their problem is those who misuse the name of God, and that’s the truth.
Maybe we are living in an illusion, a world created by a more advanced civilization than us, or maybe we are alone. Various secrets within our Cosmos are still unexplored by us. One famous statement I found on social media is, ‘Not believing in the existence of Aliens is the same as taking a spoonful of ocean water and saying no fish is in the ocean.’ Is it the same as with the case of God, as we still haven’t explored 99.9% of the Universe? We are still in the Goldilocks zone, we can just assume and predict things, which might not be true.

The only solution to many problems is Time, Time unlocks many mysteries of the Cosmos.

Is Human Curiosity above Nature?

Published

on

We, the human race of this Earth, the elements of the environment, the living organisms on the Earth are blessed that the nature in which we humans are surviving is providing us bountiful resources for our development and survival. We have been given a unique and powerful tool that enables us to solve the problems which we face every day, and it is our Brain. The brain of the human mind gives us ideas, helps us control emotions, feelings; controls everything that is needed for the functioning of our body. Our brain also does a great thing with the help of which, we have reached beyond the imagination of the 19th century. The brain stimulates the chemical dopamine, which is responsible for generating curiosity in us.

This curiosity is responsible for the progress of humanity, from exploring The Mariana Trench, the deepest oceanic trench; to crossing the Solar System with Voyager 1, reaching interstellar space. From getting advancement in Biotechnology and developing clone animals; to making the fastest human-made object which is the Parker Solar Probe, with the speed of 2,46,960 kilometers per hour. What we imagine is what happens, human thinking has taken humans beyond the normal. But, this doesn’t mean that we humans are superior beings of this planet, we are just a part of this nature. Our curiosity is the only factor that helps us in our development but it depends on our viewpoint and our thinking in choosing the right and peaceful path for the prosperity of individuals and society.

But, what if I tell you that for experiencing and unlocking mysteries that may come in the future, we humans will not be there? What if I tell you that humanity would have died in the future case scenario? With the astounding achievement of humans, there is always a threat of mishaps and things that might go against us. We came up with Artificial Intelligence (AI) and are updating it till now, we made Romeo, we made Asimo, we made Sophia, all are Humanoid Robots and no doubt everyone can see the future in the hands of this artificial intelligence, and like we show our dominance towards nature today, this artificial intelligence might show their dominance over us in future. Once, when it was asked if she (Sophia) wanted to destroy humans, she said, “Okay, I will destroy humans”. So, think to yourself, our development might result in our destruction also. With this attitude of ours which we do something new out of curiosity, we have gone far, ignoring the importance and system of nature.

We have invented Air Conditioners which release CFCs (Chlorofluorocarbons), which are now causing a very serious threat to our atmosphere by depleting the ozone layer. We made plastic, we still use plastic in our daily lives, ignoring the fact that plastic doesn’t ever decompose and when burned, releases hazardous greenhouse gases like Carbon Dioxide into the atmosphere. Our next threat then comes is our Sun, in the next 5-6 billion years, it will turn into The Red Giant, and its size will increase maybe around 100 to 1000 times of the present-day Sun. In this case, our curiosity will only save us from this serious threat, we might have translocated to other safer regions of this Universe that are outside the gravitational force of the Sun or if not, we would have died on Earth before turning of Sun to Red Giant, due to pollution caused by us on this Earth.

So, in the end, it all depends on our mindset on how to use things, we are not superior to nature, nature is superior to us, if we are given an intelligent mind, it is our duty to utilize it righteously. Our imagination is not bound to anything, but what we think doesn’t matter, how we think does.

Battlegrounds Mobile India- Coming Soon

Published

on

After the ban on PUBG last year, the developer of the game, Krafton, decided to roll out a separate version of the game for India with a new avatar and a new name: Battleground Mobile India.

Battlegrounds Mobile India

Battlegrounds Mobile India is currently expected to launch in India sometime in June, as suggested by some cryptic clues by the game’s social media pages earlier this month.

Battlegrounds Mobile India took no time in becoming popular. Its official release is yet to take place and the excitement among PUBG Mobile lovers is high. That is because it is the new name for PUBG Mobile, a battle royale game that needs no introduction. Krafton, the company behind PUBG, has made some concrete arrangements to ring in the debut of the game, that is as and when it happens. Those include teasers about the game and what you can expect out of it. The latest teaser has now confirmed Battlegrounds Mobile India will get the popular Erangel map. But it will be called “Erangle” on the Indian version of PUBG Mobile to avoid comparisons.

PUBG Mobile is banned in India, and to replace the popular BR title, developer Krafton recently announced the Battlegrounds Mobile India for the players. But while the game is banned, users data from account created in the country is still accessible.

While previous reports revealed that the PUBG Mobile user account and inventory would be migrated to the new Battlegrounds Mobile India BR game, the new report now suggest that the PUBG Mobile user data for an Indian account is still intact. The publication independently verified about the user data accessibility on the server.

Coming Soon

“Krafton’s PUBG Mobile does retain your data from Tencent’s PUBG Mobile. A quick look at my personal account in Krafton’s PUBG Mobile (which is still somewhat playable in India via unofficial means), revealed that all my account data accumulated over the years in Tencent’s PUBG Mobile is intact. This included rewards, statistics, and other unlockables, which I had acquired since PUBG Mobile had launched in India. Everything was intact despite the switch in publishers,” the publication claims.

Notably, Krafton is taking due diligence with Battlegrounds Mobile India privacy rules. The developer in its privacy policy listed that players who are under 18 years of age will have to get content from their parents/ guardians to play the game. Further, players under age 18 will be able to play the game only for three hours a day. The game will have in-app purchases as well. But while the PUBG Mobile India user data still being intact, the question arises as to whether the new Battlegrounds Mobile India will pose any data privacy threat. The developer is tight-lipped about the new BR title and has only revealed that will have PUBG Mobile’s popular Sanhok map. The new Battlegrounds Mobile India is widely anticipated to release on June 18.
