Take a look at the detailed list of major events in Science and Technology that have occurred in the past one week that is from December 12-18, 2020. Know all about ISRO’S 42nd Communication Satellite, and a new kind of Plasmodium causing deadly malaria here
World Sight Day 2020: It is observed on the second Thursday of October and this year it falls on 8 October. The Human eye works on the refraction of light through a natural convex lens made up of transparent living material and enables us to see things around us. Also, the ability to see is called vision, eyesight, or drishti. Sometimes a person cannot able to see distant or nearby objects clearly and have a defect of vision which can be fixed by wearing spectacles.
29 April Asteroid 2020: A very big asteroid '1998 OR2' will pass close to Earth. It is the most massive asteroid that will fly so close to the Earth this year. It has a diameter of 1.8-4.1 km. It will stay 3.9 million miles (6.3 million kilometres) away from our planet. According to US Space agency NASA, there is no possibility of the asteroid colliding with the Earth. Let us read in detail about asteroids and how they are formed? What is the difference between an asteroid and a comet?
National Science Day is celebrated on 28 February to pay tribute to Dr. C.V Raman for his discovery Raman Effect. Let us have a look in detail about National Science Day, 2020 theme, history, how is it celebrated and significance.
A lunar eclipse occurs when Moon passes into the shadow of the earth and it becomes darkened or when the shadow of earth blocks the sun. Have you listened to or studied about super blue blood moon? How it occurs and what is it? Let us have a look!
Have you ever noticed that while rearing a boat, wave’s ripple out which is known as wake. According to science since 127 years, the long uniformity of waves forms v-shape at an angle of exactly 39 degrees. It does not affected by the size of the vessel, speed or motor’s power. But now, a physicist proved this theory with other angle. Let us understand the science behind it.
In 1962, the Government of India set up an Indian National Committee for Space Research (INCOSPAR). It was set up at Thumba Equatorial Rocket Launching Station (TERLS) in Thiruvananthapuram for upper atmospheric research. The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) is the space agency of the Government of India headquartered in the city of Bangalore. It was formed in 1969, superseded the erstwhile INCOSPAR.
Physical laws play a crucial role in Science and are considered as fundamental. Many laws of physics are built after various research or some are a modification of existing laws and theoretical research. This article deals with important laws of physics which will help in the preparation of various examinations.
Stephen Hawking was a renowned scientist of modern times. His contributions regarding universe, black hole theory and relativity is groundbreaking and do you know that recently Hawking's final scientific paper that has been completed before his death in March has now been written and released by his colleagues at Cambridge and Harvard University.
Physics is the branch of natural science in which things related to motion; gravity, space, energy, time etc. are studied. Mainly it has two branches, but also divided into subdivisions. Let us study the list of major branches of physics through this article which will also help in the preparation of various competitive examinations.
Understanding the basics of General Science can lead any aspirant to achieve good marks in the examination. Therefore, We have compiled a complete study material on General science with major subjects like Biology, Chemistry and Physics.
A barcode is a square or rectangular image consisting of a series of parallel black lines and white spaces of varying widths. Barcode stores product related data like the date of manufacturing, expiry date, name of the manufacturer, country of the origin and price & quantity of the product. There are two types of barcode one is 1D and other is 2D (2 dimensional).
When the body changes its position with respect to its surrounding, the body is said to be in Motion like motion of moon around the earth. This article deals with a type of motion i.e. Uniform circular motion with examples.
The Doomsday Clock is a symbol which represents the likelihood of a man-made global catastrophe. This clock is taken care of by the members of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists since 1947. This clock represents the causes responsible for threat to humanity. If this clock shows 12 O’clock at midnight; it means that the world can end anytime.
