Don't Miss this !

MERCURY AT ITS BEST: Tonight is the best night of the year to see Mercury. Step outside at sunset and look west. Mercury is the bright pink "star" shining through the glow of the setting sun. (If you miss the planet tonight, try again tomorrow. Mercury will remain visible at sunset all weekend long.)

NEW COMET: A new comet is emerging in the morning sky. Comet Pojmanski has been brightening since its discovery in January and can now be found just east of Venus before sunrise. The best way to see the comet is through binoculars or a small telescope: It looks like a fuzzy 5th-magnitude star with a small tail.

I feel something ......

Have we ever thought of looking at the universe from a different point of view ? I am sure only 7% of the population in the world gets to manage and come out of their homes during winter and give a look at the sky.The sky has always amazed the man from ancient times of Ptolemy and Galileo.Those bright dots in the sky during winter really arise a feeling of exploring and some may even want to reach those destinations.Man has been so fascinated with these glowing stars in the sky that we have today made them our goals.Pholosophical view – “Our aim in life is touching those stars!”

Telescopes , other equipments, supreme high-tec observatories have really improved our vision of looking at the universe.Ok so from now on we would have a giant vacuum called space and then we would have those stars and finally the solar system consisting of those planets.Who got this idea ? I mean its too great to start everything with !

Space-Exploration is gaining heights these days. Hundreds of agencies work towards finding out possibility of life in the universe. Distributed work and proper mindset has even showed us high qualitative results.

Movies like Star Trek, The Centre of Earth etc etc. are becoming popular among the people. I wish if I had one of those startrek Space Ships. I would then travel at the speed of light and reach those far ends of the universe and my dreams would automatically come true.But restrictions which say this is fictious hinders my goal achievement.One day I would make this dream come true … reach those corners of the cosmos whose secrets lie at the heart of space and time !


This is science !

When you are speaking to technically illiterate people you must resort to the plausible falsehood instead of the difficult truth.
