“Humans And Space Exploration”

Space has always fascinated humans with its hidden facts and secrets. Space exploration and various researches have helped us understand a bit about space, our earth and our solar system. Frequent Trips to space and various space missions have not only helped humans to be more advanced in technology but also give birth to new theories and research work. Today we live in our world and technology initially made to be used for space missions only. 

Launch of satellites, landing on the moon, sending rovers on Mars and building and the International Space Station has set a big example for the coming generation to go beyond with the improvement in current technology.

  1.  There have been various advantages known to  humans from space exploration and missions. It has helped us to estimate and forecast weather, and thus make people aware about any kind of danger. 
  2. Telecommunication and the Internet have been possible through these satellites as well. 
  3. Many countries use satellites as defense systems to safeguard their country from any kind of external attack. 
  4. These space missions help us to know about natural phenomena happening outside our solar system and also about things happening various light years ahead. 
  5. It has fascinated students towards itself  that more and more ideas for space mission exploration have been born. 
  6. It has helped us to land on the moon and acknowledge the presence of resources which we can use in future and build a human base over there. 
  7. Also we were able to reach other planets in our solar system through satellites. And even land on some, which includes Mars. These do have challenged humans at times, but ended on the side of mankind. 
  8. We have also known about the possibilities of life on other planets at a distance from our solar system, which would surely be a curiosity to reach and know if those planets do support life. 

These do have some disadvantages as they require a lot of investment, loss of resources and material and also the surety of the result is not available. People do after basic needs in their life, and we are invested in space. Everything has its pros and cons, and it depends on us if we see the better side or create it worse for others to look at. The advantages of space exploration have changed the life of common man without any doubt with more facination, new discoveries and the dream to go in space. Whatever we see around us is a result of science and humans invest in it . Space exploration will bring up new possibilities, research, ideas which will  not only make our life better with comforts and facilities but also fill our life with the dreams to turn reality and those realities to be lived in. 

Space exploration is a boon to mankind, as it not only brings out the possibility to discover new species and planets like ours but also can be a better option to help us shift to other planets with better opportunities and resources seeing the present scenario of our planet. “Bad air to breath, impure water to drink, lack of natural resources and people dying of hunger and basic needs day by day. Reduction of land as per growing population, cutting of trees for their basic needs and killing of animals for hunger”. Seems horrible  but is the bitter truth. Thus soon we will get exhausted of all our resources and would leave to die.

The exploration has a tendency to bring out the ray of hope and possibilities for our coming generation to survive. We all need to work on this together by not only coming together for our earth, saving it from degradation but also searching for better alternatives as future homes.

binary number system and indian history

Binary numbers, number system, decimal codes, computer and technology, Binary codes , information theory, digitallogic gate these things are co-realated with each other . Binary numbers we generally come to know about this number system in our junior year computer class and we used to solve this kind of binary protblemes like convert the decimal number to binary number .

so let’s know what is binary number system binary number is a number expressed in the base-2 numeral system or binary numeral system, which uses only two symbols: typically “0” (zero) and “1” (one).A binary code represents text, computer processor instructions, or any other data using a two-symbol system. The two-symbol system used is often “0” and “1” from the binary number system. The binary code assigns a pattern of binary digits, also known as bits, to each character, instruction, etc

now if we serch for the history for the binary number system theory or binary code , source show that the modern binary number system, the basis for binary code, was invented by Gottfried Leibniz in 1689 and appears in his article Explication de l’Arithmétique Binaire. The full title is translated into English as the “Explanation of the binary arithmetic”, 

But In India the binary number system came around 3rd or 2nd century, Acharya Pingala an ancient Indian mathematician invented binary system , it,s assumes that he was 1st inventor of binary system in the world. Acharya Pingala authored Chandaḥśāstra (Pingala-sustra) or Chandhas refers to one of the six Vedangas or limbs of vedic studies Chandaḥśāstra literally translate to sciece of meters in Sanskrit. Pingala used binary numbers in the form of short and long syllebles making it similar to Morse code, here the binary numbers increased toward the right and not to the left like in The modern binary system, in this book number started from 1 not 0 . Pingala used laghu(light) and guru(heavy) rather than 0 and 1 described syllbles,(four short syllables—binary “0000”—is the first pattern),

That the binary code was invented in India is hardly a surprise. Not long ago, scientists discovered a very intriguing  ancient Indian text known as the Bakhshali manuscript that re-writes history of number zero and mathematics.

The First Recorded Solar Eclipse of the World

Coming across through the phone calendar, I received a notification from “OnThisDay.com” site. I saw that the year was 512 CE when an ancient Irish monastic chronicler recorded a solar eclipse.

The notification

However,in the records of history it’s not a child’s play to detect about the very first solar eclipse that occured in the world but it’s believed that the ancient Irish scholars were the first to document about a solar eclipse. 

And no doubt, the Irish have a long history with eclipses. Images of the first recorded eclipse were carved into stone cairns at Loughcrew in Meath over 5,000 years ago, but one of the first eclipses, of the common era, was also recorded in Ireland, by an Irish monk on 29 June 512 CE in the Chronicle of Ireland. This reflects that they had knowledge about eclipses, astronomy, illustration as well as documentation.

Loughcrew Stone Cairns, County Meath, Ireland
Drombeg Stone Circle, County Cork, Ireland

Eclipses-

The ancient Irish have carved images of an ancient eclipse on giant stones over 5,000 years ago. The exact date has been researched as November 30, 3340 BCE,which is the oldest known recorded solar eclipse till this date.

The engravings are found in the Stone Age “Cairn L” at Loughcrew, in County Meath. “Cairn L” has been mentioned in Astronomy Ireland’s article as “Irish Recorded Oldest Known Eclipse 5,355 Years Ago.” They said that the ancient Irish priests recorded the events on three stones relating to the eclipse.

Representation of the solar eclipse. Look at the work as to how, but using concentric circles, the ancient Irish scholars tried their best to depict an eclipse.

This is amazing to claim that without the use of modern technologies, the ancient Irish constructed these complex structures and they built them with such accuracy that these structures continue to excel their performance in astronomical functions till this date.

Thus in these ways, we can figure out the fact that the ancient Irish chroniclers were the ones who excelled in the creation of the accurate illustrations of the solar eclipses, providing us a proper documentation of the same.

The best thing TO hold in life is to be with each other..

This is the modern era where the importance of ‘Live in Relationship’ has become common for the people.It is a way of living arrangement in which an unmarried couples lives together in a long term relationship that resembles a marriage.The supereme court in India said that a man and woman living together without marriage cannot be construed as an offence infact “Living together is a right to live” the supereme court apparently said referring to the Article 21 of the Indian constitution which guarantees right to life and personal liberty as a fundamental right. Like each coin has two side so that is the case in live in relationship there are certain pros like there are no legal formalities and responsibilities. You get to know your partner in a better way and understand each other in deeper level.It is beneficial as you can evaluate the areas in which you both need to work on if you really want to get married to the person whom you love.Some cons are that society finds it hard to accept such relationship open heartedly.Another disadvantage is the lack of commitment.Any quarrel or fight can lead to split , whereas in marriage a fight is often followed by reasoning and resolving.

“Experience – A great teacher!”

Experience is something that we can’t get from books or education. It is something that we keep on gaining every day by doing different and new types of work. It is indeed our best teacher, as it teaches you so many things about yourself and your life.

Experience is a teacher for all the people irrespective of their age, religion or sex. It is very helpful for your overall development. Hence, you should willingly learn from the experiences of your life.

It helps you to work on yourself so that you can show your best version to the world. You might not succeed in your work at the first attempt, but experience will help you to learn from your mistakes and not repeat them again.

● Experience gives you an understanding of who is actually close to you in reality. During your tough times, you learn about the people who are really there with you and who are not. You understand the difference between the people who really love and support you and the people who pretend to do so.

● Experience teaches you some important life lessons which cannot be learnt in any school or educational institutions or from any book. This is because you get to do the work in reality, so you gain an understanding of how things actually work in real life. These actual-life experiences prove very helpful for you in future.

● Experience gives you both bad as well as good memories. You can learn a lot from both, as good memories will encourage you, while bad memories will teach you to learn from the mistakes that you committed in the past.

● Experience helps you realize your capabilities. You get to know about your strengths and weaknesses. This helps you to make better decisions in life.

“Learn to forgive more.”

During our journey of life, all of us make some or other mistakes. These mistakes are not always that huge, but any mistake be it small or big has consequences that can be the deciding factor for your future with someone.

We forgive a person who has created a problem in work or who is at fault in destroying your relationship. Forgiveness is a great quality which makes you a better and stronger person. It is the key to leading a happy life with your loved ones.
Hence, we shall learn to forgive more, as it has many benefits:

● Forgiving people will make you mentally strong. It will also bring positivity in your thoughts and help you to focus on important things in your life, rather than focussing on the negativity around you. It will also keep you away from stress and make you a happier person.

● Forgiving someone will clear all the pessimism residing in your mind. It will thus prepare you to once again see the good qualities in the person whom you have forgiven. You will be able to accept him or her wholeheartedly without having any second thoughts in your mind.

● When you forgive someone, you give yourself and the person whom you have forgiven, a chance to start a healthy and beautiful relationship and create wonderful memories. It teaches you to live in the present and think about your future, rather than being stuck in the past which is not useful in any way.

● Forgiving someone will take away the anger from your mind. When you no longer feel the emotion of anger for someone, you become more productive and successful in your work. It will also free yourself from the feeling of revenge. This will help to focus your mind only on your path to achieve success.

● You feel calm and peaceful once you forgive someone. You feel like you are freed from some kind of burden. This freedom helps you to enjoy your life to the fullest and experience beautiful things in life.

● You get to live only once and during your journey of life, you shall try to make good and unforgettable memories with people. You shall not waste your precious time on the people who are not worthy of it. So, you should not live your life with some grudge as this will not benefit you in any way. Learn to forgive more as everyone makes mistakes in life.

We can see from the above benefits, that forgiveness is important for us and the person who is at fault. But, you have to remember that forgiveness is vital, but forgetting is equally important. You shall learn to forget the mistakes made by the other person and try to never bring them back in your relationship.

Just forgiving is not important, because you still might have some bad memories of your fight or misunderstanding in your mind. Forgetting such memories is required as well. Hence, it is rightly said, ‘forgive and also forget.’

Oft, in the stilly night ✨

Oft, in the stilly night,Ere slumber’s chain has bound me,Fond memory brings the lightOf other days around me;The smiles, the tears,Of boyhood’s years,The words of love then spoken;The eyes that shone,Now dimm’d and gone,The cheerful hearts now broken!Thus, in the stilly night,Ere slumber’s chain hath bound me,Sad memory brings the lightOf other days around me.When I remember allThe friends, so link’d together,I’ve seen around me fall,Like leaves in wintry weather;I feel like oneWho treads aloneSome banquet-hall deserted,Whose lights are fled,Whose garlands dead,And all but he departed!Thus, in the stilly night,Ere slumber’s chain has bound me,Sad memory brings the lightOf other days around me.
