Climate Change:Challange of 21st Century

One of the big challenges of present world is climate change due to global warming. It is believed that humans are enhancing global warming. The video below well explains this topic. It tells you about the atmosphere of our earth, weather system, role of CO2, and effects of global warming. We have already seen the effect of global warming. Mt. Everest, the tallest mountain, in the world is becoming naked. There is danger of bursting of snow lakes in the Himalayan region. This is really nice video (animated) targeted for general public. SAVE OUR EARTH.

CERN in Focus: Good for awareness.

CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is one of the world's largest and most respected centres for scientific research. Its business is fundamental physics, finding out what the Universe is made of and how it works. At CERN, the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments are used to study the basic constituents of matter — the fundamental particles. By studying what happens when these particles collide, physicists learn about the laws of Nature.

Here is a brief video explaining Cern in 3 min.

GPU the new revolution in Computer Simulation

Running simulations and performing different high memory crunching math has been really easy and fast with the use of GPU, which can replace 100's of CPU by just one desktop GPU. The new method for solving the present challenge using GPU has made a way to solve different big systems (molecules) in very less time and money as compared to what we have been doing lately using CPU's.
