A Real-Life Motivational Story Portrayed In ‘Mission Mangal’

ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation) is the official space agency of India. Recently, ISRO launched the Chandrayan 2 which is bound to be a successful mission and is one of the biggest space exploration missions in ISRO’s history. Another famous and one of the biggest missions that defined the brilliance of ISRO was the Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM).

The goal of the mission was to orbit a satellite called the ‘Mangalyan’ around planet Mars. ‘Mangalyan’ was launched on November 5th, 2013 and has been orbiting planet Mars since September 4th, 2014. The mission was successful and proved to be a name-maker for ISRO in the whole world. Not only was the mission revolutionary, but a lot of people got motivation from ISRO as they accomplished the mission in their first attempt and with a budget much less than that of NASA’s Mars mission (the Mars rover one).


However, not many people know about the struggles of scientists, engineers, and technicians involved in the Mars Orbiter Mission. They had to work extra hard due to limited fundings and a then insufficient budget for a mission that grand. The real story of the Mars Orbiter Mission has now been rele...

Solid State Devices: From Jagadish Chandra Bose to The Modern Electronics

The billion-dollar modern solid-state device industry that we see today, it all started back in 1901 with a Bangladeshi 42 year’s old scientist patenting the use of a crystal rectifier for detecting the radio waves. In 1894 he was the first person ever to use a crystal as a radio wave detector. This is a brief history of the revolution of the solid-state device and its involvement with great Bangladeshi scientist Jagadish Chandra Bose.

How Memory Impairment Is Related To Age Nowadays
27. July 2019 at 12:04
by Mohit Bansal Chandigarh
Thinning of hairs, overgrown beard, and a bulging abdomen are some common signs of aging which do not cause much discomfort. Most men learn to accept some deficiency in physical strength, energy, and sexual desire. In fact, men learn to compensate for these gradual changes and spend years of creative and joyful years of aging. But one of the greatest Traits of aging is the combination of experience, judgment, and memories. We call it ‘wisdom’.

2500 years ago, Sophocles, one of three ancient Greek Tragedians said, "Men are learning to become wise in aging" maybe because of this treasured wisdom that older people are worried about their memory deficits than any other age-related changes. This concern is not unreasonable, as about 7% of people over 65 have a ‘cognitive impairment’ condition and 40% of people over 85 have a major mental condition. Aging is unbearable, however, medical research shows that mental deficits can be prevented.


Increasing age can even affect the best of the brains. Learning new things takes time as new information is thoroughly processed in the brain and the details can be a lot to handle. As the names suggest, short-term memory is lost quickly, however, long-term memory stays. Of course, aged people who are health...

The field of engineering has been described as of that where the knowledge of mathematics and sciences, gained by study, experience and practice is or are been applied, with key judgment bend on developing ways towards an economical usage of materials and natural forces, for the benefit of mankind.

Technological advancements have been acclaimed as the main catalyst that accounts for the different developmental strides that are evident in our localities and the global world at large. Thus, we can say “a nation which does not acknowledge the rightfulness of its engineering scope in its various educational set up, would be of no difference from a nation lacking in its quest towards development”.


The engineering field accounts for almost all (if not all) of the various developments that we see around us: structural development, transportation, medical care, in the energy sector, software and hardware designs, fabrics, agriculture, communication and so on. These developments are evident through the different engineering field of studies, such as; Chemical Engineering, Automotive Engineering, Petroleum Engineering, Me...

Antibiotic Resistance

by Abdelrahman Elaraby
Humans developed antimicrobial drugs to destroy diseases caused by microbes. The most common known antimicrobial is antibiotic which targets the bacteria. At the beginning of the 21st century the antimicrobial resistance has become very common, so we have to understand this phenomenon scientifically to prevent it from becoming a fatal disaster later.

Bacteria are prokaryotic microorganisms that have the ability to enter the body replicating and growing causing serious diseases. Antibiotics agents interfere with specific processes that are essential for growth and/or division either for killing bacteria or at least stopping their growth. But How Drugs Interfere With Bacterial Growth And Division?


Proteins are important components in the cell to function normally, so some antibiotics inhibit the protein synthesis by inhibiting ribosomes thus stopping protein synthesis which results in bacterial death.


 Folic acid (one of B vitamins) can’t enter the bacteria, so the bacteria have to synthesize it, as it is important for the bacterial growth, by the help of a certain enzyme called dihydropteroate synthase. Antibiotics like...

U.S. Transportation Department Probes FAA's Certification of 737 MAX

New reporting claims that engineers involved in evaluations of the plane -- a Boeing 737 Max 8 -- knew there were flaws in the original report used to certify the model before it was approved to fly. Following the Indonesian Lion Air Flight 610 air crash in October 2018 that killed 189 people, the U.S. Transportation Department launched an inquiry into the Boeing 737 MAX.

According to a Wall Street Journal report, the U.S. Transportation Department which has been probing the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) approval of the 737 MAX especially its new anti-stall control system known as MCAS (Manoeuvring Characteristics Augmentation System) has warned two FAA offices to safeguard computer files. 


The Seattle Times also reported that Boeing’s original 737 MAX safety analysis of MCAS that was used by FAA to certify the aircraft had fundamental flaws. According to the report, the system had too much power and lacked redundancy. The situation may have been compounded by FAA rules that permit aircraft manufacturers to self-certify.

Bilingualism.

"Brain power improves by brain use, just as our bodily strength grows with exercise" Simple words were said by a man thinking so logically that anything by continuous use will improve. Learning new languages is a good brain exercise that doesn’t only have tangible effects on one’s personality, but it also does wonders to the brain structure and the wiring among the neurons.

Bilingualism refers to a situation when a child confronts two distinct languages at the same time . Bilingualism is closely related to the phenomenon of language acquisition the particular way in which we all learn our native language as children. We acquire the skill, and even if we have to work on our writing, speaking seems as natural as breathing. Scientists claim that language acquisition is a process that starts at the beginning of our lives and ends around puberty. Bilingualism was considered a must be avoided method in raising children to prevent some myths and misconceptions that greatly prevailed in the beginning of 19th century. 


One of these myths that learning more than one language in the childhood can lead to confusion and inability to differentiate between the words of the two languages. This commo...

Are comma splices always wrong?
17. February 2019 at 09:15
by Mohamed Emad
Comma splices, one of the most frequent mistakes in English and a horrid sight to any English teacher out there. However, very few are aware that there are types of comma splices that are perfectly acceptable.

Before proceeding to explain when the usage of a comma splice is acceptable, let’s first define what a comma splice is. A comma splice occurs when attempting to join two independent clauses using a comma. For example, consider the following sentence:

“Tom is such a thoughtful guy, he cares a lot about other people.”


The two clauses above can stand by themselves as complete sentences, and thus they cannot be joined with a comma. Instead, they may be joined using a coordinator (and, but, or, nor, yet, and so), or separated using some form of end-stop punctuation (a period, semicolon, exclamation mark, etc.)


Because of this, almost everyone has the wrong impression that the “avoid any comma splice” rule is one that must be slavishly obeyed. But that isn’t true at all. In fact, a comma splice is s...

A flagship species, this dolphin is an indicator of the biological health of the aquatic and terrestrial environment adjoining the Indus River. It is found exclusively in freshwater, living not only in the main channels, but also, during the flood season, in seasonal tributaries and the flooded lowlands. The scientific name for the Indus river dolphin is, “Platanista gangetica minor”. The Indus river dolphin is one of around 80 known species of cetacea and one of around 40 known species of dolphin.

Due to their apparent small population size these marine mammals are currently considered endangered and hunting them is considered illegal. The Blind Dolphin has a long beak and a stocky body.

Artificial intelligence is one of humankind’s truly revolutionary endeavours. As AI becomes more sophisticated and its ability to perform human tasks accelerates exponentially, we're finally seeing some attempts to wrestle with what that means, not just for business, but for humanity as a whole.
Faced with automated future, what moral framework should guide us? Optimizing logistics, detecting fraud, composing art, conducting research, providing translations and what not, intelligent machine systems are transforming our lives for the better. But the question is getting better by how far and to what extent?

The rudimentary form of algorithmic optimization for content and other numerous tech addictive methods are the new frontier of human dependency. When used right, this could evolve into an opportunity to nudge society towards more beneficial behaviour. However, in the wrong hands it could prove detrimental by directing human attention and triggering certain actions. These actions can compel us to think “are we heading to be a cyborg?”

The great 20th century scientist Albert Einstein developed a theory called Special Relativity. The ideas of Special Relativity are very hard to imagine because they aren't about what we experience in everyday life, but scientists have confirmed them. This theory says that space and time are really aspects of the same thing—space-time. There's a speed limit of 300,000 kilometers per second (or 186,000 miles per second) for anything that travels through space-time, and light always travels the speed limit through empty space.

Special Relativity also says that a surprising thing happens when you move through space-time, especially when your speed relative to other objects is close to the speed of light. Time goes slower for you than for the people you left behind. You won't notice this effect until you return to those stationary peo...

Towards the improvement of science in Kenya

At the basic level, we all envisage a transformation from a backward, superstition-ridden to a progressive society using science and technology as instruments of social change. After 55 years, one expects tremendous physical growth in the scientific community in Kenya. However, in the spheres of social behaviour, scientific attitude is at a discount. In the case of national commitment to the development of science and technology, it is a paradoxical situation.
Since Independence, Kenya has achieved a fairly stable social and political set up. Kenya has taken giant steps forward in industrialization, agriculture, science and education, but in almost every field she has achieved only a lopsided progress with the benefits of progress rarely even trickling down to the masses. A great majority of children remain illiterate and find no exposure to even the rudimentary benefits of science. Even more distressing is that those who benefit from “progress” have little thought for the rest. There is a total lack of accountability among Kenyan Scientists in the present day set-up. The reasons are not difficult to discern.
