Oldest Water

World’s Oldest Water Trapped in a “Shadow Zone” Deep in the Ocean

The age of any ocean water is calculated on the basis of its re-circulation process. Typically it takes few days to few years, to come in contact with the atmosphere. But deep in the North Pacific Ocean, there is a place that has remained trapped in a “shadow zone” 2 km below the sea surface for near about 2000 years. A group of scientists from … Continue reading World’s Oldest Water Trapped in a “Shadow Zone” Deep in the Ocean

Bionic Eye

Bionic Eye: The Future of Vision Impairment

There is nothing more blissful than to see the world with our own eyes. Unfortunately, some of us don’t have the ability to enjoy it. According to a WHO report, an estimated 253 million people live with vision impairment all over the world. Among which 36 million are completely blind and 217 million have moderate to severe vision difficulty. Although organ donation is a possible … Continue reading Bionic Eye: The Future of Vision Impairment

Higgs

Quantum Computation and Machine Learning to Find The Higgs Boson

In the 60’s several physicists proposed a mechanism to explain the mass of the most basic building blocks of the Universe. Peter Higgs was one of them and suggested an unstable subatomic particle boson (Higgs Boson) with no spin, electric charge, or color charge responsible for the mass. On July 4, 2012, the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider discovered the boson … Continue reading Quantum Computation and Machine Learning to Find The Higgs Boson

Study Reveals Cancerous Mutation is Mostly Bad Luck

Even if you have never touched a cigarette or any kind of tobacco products in life, there is a 66 percent chance that you can have cancer in future. Yes, that’s the truth. A study published in the journal Science has shocked the whole clinical world with their new findings regarding the genetic mutations of cells and their probability to transform into a cancerous one. … Continue reading Study Reveals Cancerous Mutation is Mostly Bad Luck

Tiangong

The Heavenly Palace, Tiangong, will soon crash into Earth

Tiangong-1 aka Heavenly Palace, China’s first space station, has accelerated its descent towards Earth and expected to hit the ground within months. Since its launch in 2011, it has served three space missions including China’s first female astronauts, Liu Yang and Wang Yaping (2012). Tiangong-1 was a part of China’s ambitious space dream. It was used to test the technical capabilities for a larger space … Continue reading The Heavenly Palace, Tiangong, will soon crash into Earth

Neutron Stars

Gravitational Waves Detected from Two Colliding Neutron Stars

It’s been few days, still, we could not possibly forget the recent achievement, the observation of the two neutron stars colliding, for the first time in the history of mankind. Many theories have been proposed over the year on how the event takes place, but this time we have successfully detected as well as observed the merger of two neutron star. On Aug. 17, the … Continue reading Gravitational Waves Detected from Two Colliding Neutron Stars

FAST

The World’s Largest Radio Telescope FAST Finds Two New Pulsars

The world’s largest radio telescope in the Guizhou province of China is in the news again. This time it is not because of its enormous size but because of the size of its achievement. On August 22 and 25, the Five-hundred-meter Aperture Spherical Telescope (FAST) has detected two pulsar signature (PSR J1859-01 (FP1 or FAST pulsar #1), and PSR J1931-01 (FP2 or FAST pulsar #2)) … Continue reading The World’s Largest Radio Telescope FAST Finds Two New Pulsars
