Why is India behind in Science and Technology?


Cricket_versus_Mars

To my Indian friends who can’t see the reason, read the last line and compare the priority of Cricket over anything, including maiden mission to Mars! 🙂

India sets measles elimination goal


India sets measles elimination goal.

You’d probably agree that with enemies like measles to eliminate, politicians don’t need riots!

And, bless you Sam Pitroda!

They have discovered a coronal hole in the sun.

Man, I have been complaining about all the adverse effects of carbon dioxide emission!

Science and Optimism

Filed under: Math, Science, Technology and Environment — pramath @ 4:39 AM

There is space for optimism in science – or science reporting. For example, an excerpt from LA Times about the lightest galaxy found so far.

Here is a not-so-optimistic way they put: (emphasis by me)

It’s unclear whether Segue 2 is simply a strange, miniaturized fossil that never grew into a larger galaxy in a larger dark matter cluster, or whether it’s the remnants of a larger galaxy that’s been shredded by the gravitational pull from the massive Milky Way.”

Here is how an optimist would write:

It remains to be seen whether Segue 2 is simply a strange, miniaturized fossil that never grew into a larger galaxy in a larger dark matter cluster, or whether it’s the remnants of a larger galaxy that’s been shredded by the gravitational pull from the massive Milky Way.”

Yes, it may be clear only after a galactic time – but we can! Can’t we?

Justin Beiber in space

Justin Beiber has booked a ticket to space. His neighbors are elated.

I would too if my neighborhood teen singer also spares my ears for some days!

Abacus, we can always count on you!

Careers for eight year olds


“My friend wanted to become an ornithologist last year.” Said the younger one.

“Hmm.”

“Yesterday he told me that he has changed his mind to become a fighter pilot.”

“Interesting!”

“I bet next he would like to become an astronaut and will finally end up as an astronomer!”

“How can you say so?”

“His plans are going away farther and farther from the ground.”

We don’t know what my son’s friend will become. We know our younger son has higher chances of becoming a mathematician with a specialization in calculus.

Why is that Swiss particle accelerator succeeding in finding where all the antimatter has gone?

Filed under: Math, Science, Technology and Environment,Raner Pillai — pramath @ 4:24 AM

If you are a follower of physics news, there is a good news. People (and genius like Raner Pillai) were wondering where all the antimatter gone? Logic says there should be equal amount of both matter and antimatter in the universe after all, right?

Recently the LHC on Switzerland border seems to have found an answer to why we don’t see antimatter around.

Raner Pillai has even better answer – he can even point to the place where most antimatter can be found!!!

According to the latest paper sent to the prestigious journal Mature, Raner Pillai divides the world in three parts:

  1. Things that don’t matter – like IPL results – which is abundantly found in the universe
  2. Things that matter – like good roads, good government officials etc. – which is rarely found in India
  3. Things that antimatter – or rather, converts “things that matter” into “things that don’t matter” like unused blocks of coal mines, unused spectrum of 2G – usually exists in the form of cashFrom this superb theory of this genius scientist, we can deduce that
  1. There is no wonder antimatter is found on Swiss border
  2. More of it can be found in Swiss bank

Raner Pillai’s backdated referral for Nobel Prize

Filed under: Math, Science, Technology and Environment,Raner Pillai — pramath @ 4:24 AM

Raner Pillai is back in news after a long time.

He has recently bought Samsung Galaxy Note II. He is blown off by its design

He is searching internet on how to nominate people for Nobel Prize backdated, this time, in the field of Dress Design.

He wonders how designers of shirts could foresee the size of Samsung Galaxy Note II for an exact fit!
