-By Lalit Koundaal Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) known as the work horse of IRSO achieved the 53rd launch carrying Amazonia-1 of Brazil and 18 Co-passenger satellites onboard today, on 28 Feb 2021 at 1024 hrs IST from the first launch pad of SDSC SHAR, Sriharikota. Launch rehearsal of PSLV-C51 was completed on Feb 25, […]

What is the Carbon Cycle?

The carbon cycle is referred to as the biogeochemical cycle by which carbon is exchanged among the geosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, pedosphere, and atmosphere of the Earth. Carbon is the primary segment of biological compounds just as a significant segment of numerous minerals, for example, limestone. Alongside the water cycle and the nitrogen cycle, the carbon […]

Revealing New Knowledge Of Earth’s Carbon Cycle

On September 23, 2020, the University of Alberta gave a broad explanation about the Earth’s carbon cycle in new depth, utilizing diamonds as breadcrumbs of knowledge into some of Earth’s deepest geologic instruments. A Ph.D. student in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, Margo Regier explained that recently, geologists have come to the acknowledgment […]

Global Warming-Protector Himalayas Turns Potential Destroyer

Could the climate be a point of discussion? Climate is something we always believe is a result of laws set by the almighty. We have been told and seen too with our own eyes that winter sets in from the month of November onwards and summer follow in March. Like a normal human beings, we […]

Diamonds Made Using Carbon Capture

Diamond forms as carbon atoms are placed under pressure and at a high temperature. When under pressure and high temperature, carbons bond together to start growing crystals. In this solid kind of bonding, every carbon atom is bonded to four other carbon atoms. This is the reason a diamond is a hard substance since every […]

Code interoperability extends the scope of quantum simulations

-By Nikita Vijay Biliye In many materials, the combination of heterogeneous components and the interfaces that appear between them decides their functionality.  Building efficient computational schemes are essential to catch the appropriate lengths and time scales of the materials. These computational schemes predict and design various characteristics of a wide range of materials by developing […]

2D material gives birth to a new form of Magnetism

-By Mridul Sinha A recent discovery of the study of superconductivity has brought us to a new horizon in the understanding of magnetic states. It reveals a strange phenomenon that occurs in the 2D world of quantum. A new type of magnetism has been discovered in the quantum world of 2D materials. A group from […]

What’s new in Black-Hole this month

Black holes are such dense points in space that produce deep sinks of gravity. Beyond a certain area, the mighty pull of the gravity of a black hole cannot escape even light. And when something goes too close, whether it be the star, earth, or spacecraft, is stretched and compressed as putty in a theoretical […]

Nanowire could provide a stable, easy-to-make superconducting transistor

-By Nikita Vijay Biliye Firstly, let us briefly discuss what superconductors are. Superconductors are substances or materials that conduct electricity with almost zero resistance. Superconductors conduct electricity when they become colder than a critical temperature. At this temperature, the electrons move freely through the materials without resistance. Hence there is no release of heat, noise, […]
