When we think about a birth of any living being, we think in terms of instantaneous reward (in terms of human life span), when it comes to its span of time to take birth. Although, it is not so instantaneous, for us, let me say that in terms of Cosmos and its origin and ongoing redefining of Cosmic evolution, it does seems like instantaneous. We have heard thousands..

How many of us have seen the movie “Meet the Parents”? Don’t worry if you haven’t but for those who did and cannot quite remember the movie, you might probably do so when you see the photograph.

Biometrics is the technology using computers to identify people according to unique biological traits, such as fingerprints, facial characteristics, retinal patterns, and behavioral characteristics such as voice. Biometrics is more accurate than other methods of security identification. Other methods of identification such as security badges, digital signatures, passwords can be stolen or lost. Biometrics allows each of us to be the password rather than having to see.

About a year back when I obtained free tickets from my company (after all who can let go of free stuff) to visit an amusement park famous for some of the thrilling roller-coaster rides in Chicago called Six Flags-Great America, I couldn’t let go of the opportunity and decided to experience it with my dear ones.

The dream of flying is as old as mankind itself. However, the concept of the airplane has only been around for two centuries. Before that time, men and women tried to navigate the air by imitating the birds. They built machines with flapping wings called ornithopters. On the surface, it seemed like a good plan. After all, there are plenty of birds in the air to show that the concept does work...

Imagine throwing a tennis ball into the air. The harder you throw the tennis ball, the faster it travels when it leaves your hand and the higher the ball will go before turning back. If you throw it hard enough it will never return, the gravitational attraction will not be able to pull it back down. The velocity the ball must have to escape is known as the escape velocity and for any object to be thrown and not return back to ground...

The recent earthquake which spawned off a Tsunami made headlines all over the world for being one of the deadliest catastrophies in modern times taking over 250,000 human lives and damaging billions of dollars in property. An earthquake is a trembling or shaking movement of the Earth’s surface. Earthquakes typically result from the movement of faults (Faults are cracks in the earth where sections of a plate are moving in different directions.) within its uppermost layers.

We have all sung this song when we were kids in school. Twinkle, twinkle, little star, How I wonder what you are. Up above the world so high, Like a diamond in the sky. Consider the galaxies. It has been estimated that there are about 100 billion of them in the observable universe. Each is a grouping of from fewer than a billion to more than a trillion stars. Most galaxies are grouped in clusters of from a few dozen galaxies to thousands of them.....

Lightning is one of the most beautiful displays in nature. Since there is an enormous amount of current in a lightning strike, there is also an enormous amount of heat. This heat is the actual cause of the brilliant white-blue flash that we see as a lightning bolt. Lightning originates around 15,000 to 25,000 feet above sea level...

On Earth one needs a sensitive needle of a compass to detect magnetic forces, and out in space they are usually much, much weaker. But beyond the dense atmosphere, such forces have a much bigger role, and a region exists around the Earth where they dominate the environment. This force is called the Earths Magnetic Field and it acts as a protective shield against cosmic radiation.....
