An Eat-or-Be-Eaten Cosmos- Dr. Piccioni.

Gravity enables life. In a very sparse cosmos, gravity gathers enough matter to form stars and planets. It squeezes stars until they burst with the energy that supports life and the atoms from which planets and people are made.But gravity also destroys its own creations. Astronomers often witness stars and planets being eaten by bigger … Continue reading

Arduino <3

Most of the students whom I’ve met in India, especially those who’re pursuing engineering have no idea what Arduino is, and what it does so here I’ve shared a introduction to Arduino from ‘arduino.cc’. There are also some videos of Arduino projects which I’ve shared, do watch them.  What is Arduino? Arduino is basically a … Continue reading

Unlimited Bandwidth- I’m not Joking!

 Unlimited Bandwidth  Where we learn that current communication is inadequate for our forthcoming ambitions, and we do not at present have a suitable alternative for the future. We look at precisely what governs the speed of communication, and exactly how slow it is throughout the Universe. We take a glimpse at the evolution of communication. … Continue reading

The naive piglet from Three Little Pigs was not the only one who built a straw house.

Diverting from the highly intriguing earlier posts, here’s something simpler for your grey cells. An extremely simple suggestion. A suggestion to make your home more comfortable and your pocket, too.
