Journey of a Soyuz spacecraft

Space exploration has always been a hallmark of national accomplishment. During the 1950 – 1980, USA and USSR were head to head in space exploration. Yuri Gagarin from Soviet Russia became the first human to be in space in as early as 1961. Since then, We have come a long way not just in terms of exploration but also in terms of technology sophistication.

Blacks & whites

While having an interesting conversation with a friend, We hit a pertinent question which led to further discussion. Why was human development across the globe not consistent? Why Africa region never saw glory years in its history even though humanity as we know it in our current being (sapiens) started from the same place.

Idea of teleportation

Most of us have watched “The Centurions” that used to be telecasted on cartoon network in 90’s. The 3 main protagonist Max Ray, Jake Rockwell & Ace Mccloud used to be teleported from the their space station “Sky Vault” along with weapons by 2 magic words “power extreme!”

Teleportation has always been an imperative theme in many Sci-Fi novels and TV shows.

Origins of Gold

In my previous article “How it all started…”, I expressed on how a star fuse elements of our periodic table in its core.

Also, how star cannot fuse iron and it leads to a big supernova explosion.

The question arises, If this is true how do we find elements in periodic table which are higher then Iron are produced? For e.g. Gold, Lead, Plutonium, etc.

We are all Equal.(period)

All human beings have almost identical genes. My genes would have around 99.9% match to genes of my friend who helps me with cleaning my car or Elon Musk for that matter. No matter you are of different color, creed, belong to different religion, have a different orientation or any other difference that you can spot with your eyes does not translate in difference of your core building blocks (DNA).

Where exactly are we!

Our planet earth has about 510.1 million square kilometres in surface area. We are part of the solar system with sun in the centre. Our sun is whopping 109 times diameter then the earth.

Our solar system is roughly 122 AU in diameter where each AU (Astronomical Unit) correspond to 150 million kilometres!

Genesis of Life

After earth was formed, it was too hot to host any form of life. It cooled off over millions of years.

The gas clouds consisting of hydrogen and water vapor began to settle.

The curious case of starlings

Starlings are small to medium size birds. They appear to be black from distance but are dark blue glossy coloured.

Shakespeare has described starlings vividly while writing Henry IV. They mimic and imitate sounds. They usually travel in big flocks.
