Autonomous Unmanned Ground Vehicle (AUGV)

The advances in autonomous motion of the vehicles in air, ground or water has come to some new front.
In the video presented below, autonomous unmanned ground vehicle is shown.
It has been claimed that given point A (starting point) and point B (ending point), AUGV is able to travel autonomously.

Astronauts Talk About Life in Space with Media

Astronauts talk with different media persons from International Space Station. There are four astronauts STS-132 Commander Ken Ham, Pilot Tony Antonelli, Mission Specialist Piers Sellers and Flight Engineer Tracy Caldwell Dyson of Expedition 23. They chat about their work and life in space with journalists from the Associated Press, Fox News Radio and CBS News. It is always a matter of curiosity about the life in space. They are just hanging around inside the station. One guy is upside down. Isn't it cool?

British born astronaut working for NASA has brought a chip of apple tree in which Newton had discovered his principle of gravity. It is kind of irony that this apple tree chip is not falling down (because it is in space). It may give some lesson.

Plants & Chemistry

People from chemistry field believe-chemistry is involve everywhere from everyday life to industry. You wake up in the morning and brush your teeth using tooth brush and paste. Both of these involve chemistry. Such list goes and goes until you sleep. Chemistry has made people's life easy and comfortable as well. It also helps to understand the things around you. One of the questions we have is: do the secrets of chemistry lie within plants? In this video the Professor thinks so and is working on a collaboration to harness the power of plants.

LHC News: Public Outreach

On 30 March 2010, the first planned collisions took place between two 3.5 TeV beams, which set a new world record for the highest-energy man-made particle collisions.
Here is one of the cern news video:
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.

Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity

There are places where gravity is so powerful nothing can escape, where time and space literally crash into the abyss. Can you feel the pull? This video is taken from and is narrated by Liam Neeson.I hope you will enjoy watching it.

One comment from Hulu is as follows:

"It is short. It is colourful and pretty. It has Liam Neeson speaking in soft tones. I think it might be a good thing to show children to get them interested in the topic before you move past the basic theories. I didn't dislike it. I just didn't feel like it really taught me anything or as an adult inspired me much to learn anything new. It is a CGI commercial for our cosmos. It was not uninteresting but not at all inspiring."

Shoot the Female Mosquitoes

Female mosquitoes bite humans and transmit diseases like malaria.  Every year thousands or more people because of mosquito transmitted diseases. This problem is prevalent in Africa and other developing countries.

Important step to get rid of malaria is stay away from such mosquitoes. Destroy the habitat of mosquitoes, use nets while sleeping in the night etc. In Nepal I used to have the mosquito net all the time in summer.

Scientists are constantly working on to save people from malaria. One new technique uses laser light to kill such mosquitoes. The laser can kill many mosquitoes in seconds. So, keep this laser source in your fens near your house and be safe. This laser device distinguishes mosquito from other insects and female mosquitoes from male ones. So, only female mosquitoes are killed. I hope that such innovations will save millions of people.

Watch the video.

Simple rule - Complicated result

New Kind of Science by Stephen Wolfram
The presentation shows how the simple rule (cellular automaton) can have a complicated result and it is not always necessary to have complicated model to explain the complicated phenomenon. It is all in nature with simple rule with no constraints can have a very interesting thing around us like snow flakes.

Tweet! Tweet!! Tweet!!! from Space

Social networks like facebook and tweeter are very strong means of expressing your views and to be in contact with friends. Tweeter is considered as micro-blogger. I  also have tweeter account but I am not big user of tweeter. Till now I have 408 tweets so far, following 59 and 21 followers. Most of my tweets are my blog posts info.

In the video below, not me but some astronauts in international space station discuss about tweeting from orbit. Expedition 22 commander Jeff Williams, astronauts T.J. Creamer and Soichi Noguchi talk how using Twitter helps them. They think tweeting is a great program to let people on earth know what astronauts are doing in space. Tweeter is everywhere. I enjoyed  listening their experience.

Evolution: From Molecules to Human

Evolution is very interesting and on the same time very complicated topic. There is an widely accepted theory on evolution. It took millions of years for Human to be in today's shape and size. This video presents a short form of the evolution process starting from molecules to humans through different stages with sketches.
