First Landing on Mars by NASA is Dependent on the 6 Minutes of This Afternoon Essentially

Published

on

The latest mission of the people on the earth to reach mars was concluded on Monday and has got experts of NASA and the interested public to get the hold on their breath for the same collection. The Insight spacecraft of NASA is due to mars, the red planet which has been travelling for the last six months. But the journey came along to be very long. There were a lot of moments of immense risk.

The actual landing on Mars was very difficult by Insight which was critical and has been completed perfectly.  The spacecraft might have to be decelerated to zero from 12300 mph in about 6 minutes.  It deployed a parachute which fires its 12 descent engines.

They finally landed after that. All of this was quite hard and the strong gravitational pull by mars and the wispy atmosphere of the planet were the reasons which caused the difficulty.

Other than this, the afternoon of Monday made it the first time when NASA in six years landed for the first time or even attempted for the first time so that the stakes have gone quite higher.

In comparison to other countries, the United States has shown a tremendous record in handling the landing on Mars in forty years for about seven times impressively. They have failed just once. Overall, the success rate of the earth is around forty percent.

The odds have always been in favour of NASA. However, it will ensure a lot less time for some time more until the world will actually find out about if the landing is successful or not. There was also a communication delay for several minutes which came between the lander and the earth which neither missed control and not the observers which were standing in the public.

This means that the NASA was not able to know where or not there was the successful landing of Insight on the surface of the mars after the attempt on landing had taken place.

If the mission of the Insight becomes successful and the mission becomes positive, the objective of the Insight will be to study the interior of the planet of Mars and will gather information about the same. They will collect major information about the insides of this planet that we suppose is going to be the future of planet of the people of the earth.

They are going to study the major signs and symptoms that the planet. The study will also include the studying of the vital signs of the planet and include further discussion about its pulse, and even the temperature both on the insides and the outsides.

According to NASA, if people of the earth are seeing a future on that planet, then this type of information is very important and needs to be collected and processed sooner.

The lander is going to stay at the same place where it landed, however, they are going to install a robotic arm which will make a hole in the planet and do the research.

Dare To Visit These 7 Most Haunted Places around The World

Paranormal Things are mostly unexplainable. Theories keep debating whether anything like that exists or not. Supernatural has always been a moot point. But one thing is for sure, no matter wherever you go in the world you often get to hear about ghost stories and haunted places. So why is it acknowledged universally and yet been questionable? We are not sure that whether we will be able to find the answer or not. The world of unknowns has always scared people from centuries across the world. Many Hollywood movies are inspired by paranormal activities.

Well, we are not here to either reaffirm your belief or debunk it. We have just found out 7 most haunted places around the world. Check the list below and decide where you would want to pay a visit or two.

1. Beechworth Lunatic Asylum, Victoria, Australia

The asylum was opened in 1867, several apparitions were reported there. People claimed that they heard screams. Sometimes doors slam shut and open all by themselves.

2. The Queen Mary Hotel, Long Beach, California

The hotel is the country’s most haunted hotel. People spotted two different ghosts here. The women were drowned in a ship’s first classroom and now their ghosts are often seen here by the guests. There is one particular room, B340 where most of the activities are noted. So it is no longer available for guests.

3. Bhangarh Fort, India

The fort was built by KingSawaiMadho Singh, in the 1600s. The small city was homed by 10,000 people. But due to a curse, the whole city was turned into ruins. The place is still ruined and nothing more. The site is marked haunted and nobody is allowed to visit there after 5 pm. Not just that those who tried to spend a night there were found dead in the morning.

What Do You Think About Circular Runway, a Futuristic Idea or A Flop Show

Circular Runway, a Futuristic Idea

Have you ever thought about the circular runway? It can happen as per the world’s aviation experts and they told about the feasibility of this project. As an old saying goes, ‘a coin has its two sides’ this project, too, has its own benefits and risks.

So let’s have a look at both the merits and demerits of new futuristic circular runways.

Benefits

  1. According to the experts, we can able to manage about four times of the present traffic of aircraft if we use the circular runways.
  2. The best purpose these circular runways serve is that they are going to occupy way lesser space than the current runways.
  3. Planes can take a number of rounds if they need a longer runway.
  4. Pilots can choose an appropriate spot on the loop without concerning about the direction of the wind.

Risks:

  1. One of the major risks is that of noise pollution. The level of noise while the plane takes off or lands may rise from all direction. It might be an issue with the residents in the neighborhood.
  2. The circular runways lead to multiple routes for the flights to land or take off. This is problematic as every flight will have to be monitored in order to avoid any accidents. Even as a slight mistake can cause a great mishap.
  3. Since pilots need to fix the aiming point before they land the plane, it is going to be difficult now for them to identify such spot on the circular runway.
  4. There is going to be a need for more navigation aids.

Centrifugal force is a major aspect of risks. And in order to counter this, airplanes may have to be redesigned with more powerful engines, more speed, lesser weight, larger wings etc.

With This Swift Melting Speed Arctic Ocean Would be Ice-Free by 2040

Melting Speed Arctic Ocean Would be Ice-Free by 2040

Forget ice-age, the time will come when there will not be ice only. The scientist who has been researching since so long have said that with this speed of melting the oceans could lose all its icebergs.

We are talking about the Arctic Ocean where due to the warming the ice is melting twice as fast as the rest of the planet. And there are chances that by 2040 there will not be any ice in there. And you all can imagine the threats it can cause to us.

When the Arctic Monitoring and Assessment Program the region is warmer and melting very quickly. And there are chances that by 2014 there will not be any ice there.

The Snow, Water, Ice Permafrost report says “The Arctic Ocean could be largely free of sea ice in summer as early as the late 2030s, only two decades from now.”

“The recent recognition of additional melt processes affecting Arctic and Antarctic glaciers, ice caps and ice sheets suggests that low-end projections of global sea-level rise made by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) are underestimated.”

The fear is not just this, as the report says that we are beyond enough that there will not be the point of return. Unless we reduce the greenhouse effects and prevent future harm.

We better take care of global warming and greenhouse emissions since they are very dangerous for the sea level.

If the glaciers melt rapidly and then there will be drastic changes in the sea level. There could be a flood and other major threat to human life.

It is not the first time that your human activities have caused harm to nature. Global heat and warming have also caused deletion in the Ozone Layer, and now it’s the glaciers that are melting twice as fast.
