ASTONISHING FACT : HOW MUCH HAVE YOU MOVED ACROSS THE UNIVERSE,FROM THE DAY YOU WERE BORN

You know how the Earth is moving around the Sun and how the Sun is moving along with the solar system across the Milky Way.

Everything is moving…so you know, we can actually calculate how much does the Earth move throughout the lifespan of a human being.

Or you can say – how much does a Human Being move across the universe through his entire life span!


This is interesting-

– A human being moves roughly 500 BILLION km around the Milky Way through his entire life or to be precise 486289301706 km and

– A Human Being moves 1332009826560 km ( Approx 1 TRILLION kms) across the universe from the day he is born to the day he dies!

-So this is approximately the distance that light travels in about 20 days. Peanuts !!

This distance is practically nothing as compared to the vastness of the universe.


Let’s break it down then …..

So a Man stranding on any point on earth moves as the earth Spins around it’s axis.

And as the earth spins you spin with it and you also revolve around the sun

And this circular way as shown above is how you move around in the universe right….? Wrong !! You don’t actually move in circles around the sun because the sun is itself moving around the Milky Way galaxy along with the solar system.

So how does your motion actually look like as you move around with the sun ??


This is how you actually move in the Universe-

As the sun moves around the Milky Way so do all the planets orbiting it including Earth.

This is how the earth is actually moving around the sun and this is how you – sitting on earth are moving in the universe.

In your entire life time, you move about a trillion kilometres across the expanse of the universe. From a distance the motion of the earth and you sitting on it would look like this.

This is your entire life Time on planet Earth ! A tiny line representing 1 TRILLION KMs is actually nothing as compared to this vast never ending universe ; the distance travelled by light in just 20 days. Morale of the Story : Take it easy!

THE FUTURE LAPTOP Is HERE

It’s not long before you would actually roll up your laptop and sling it from your shoulder. Ah! Yes a fully foldable roller Laptop – THE ROLLTOP 

The designers have been working on this concept for several years and the prototype is now out. ( Check Below for Video Link)



The RollTop Would consist of a 

Flatboard.  The main flat surface or the screen which could be folded into a laptop and made flat like a tablet. 

–  Base.   The central unit on which the screen will be rolled on to. It will also feature a Loudspeaker and a webcam. 

Holding Belt/ Power cable.  This smartly designed sling belt would also act as a power cable which will join the base unit to the power supply unit. 

RollTop Computer  (Video Link)

EARTH Like Planet Discovered by NASA. 


A new Earth size planet has been discovered by NASA in the TRAPPIST star system on 23 Feb2017. 

Intersting Facts about the TRAPPIST -1 Star system. 

– The The system has one star and seven planets orbiting it.

– The size of the Star is however much smaller than that of our sun. 
– The fifth planet (Trappist-f) , is almost equal to Earth in size. 

– Planet F is in The green eco zone of its Star-system just like Earth is in the green zone of the solar system, meaning  Trappist F can support life. 

Q: CAN THERE BE LIFE ON TRAPPIST F ?

Absolutely Yes, given the distance of the planet from the sun there is a high possibility that there would be water on the planet and if there is water , most certainly life will be existing on the planet. 



Q:  HOW FAR IS THE TRAPPIST SYSTEM FROM EARTH ? 

On the Interplanetary scale it’s almost in our neighbourhood. But with our current capability of travel and speed the TRAPPIST  Star system is 40 Light Years away from us. This means that if we travel with the speed of light (which we obviously cannot right now) it will take us 40 years to reach Trappist F. So we are not going there anytime soon. 

But at any scale this discovery is huge and it definitely answers one question that we are not alone in this universe !

I Did it, Found Water On Mars.

image

The news related to finding water on Mars made me jump with joy like a Kid. 
Yes i belong to the generation which has grown up seeing the Terminator and Star Wars. Though it still might be distant future but the whole idea of space travel   sends a wave of excitement through my spine.

Finding flowing salt water on mars might not be that great a deal as it sounds, but it still a great deal, for now atleast. You will realise it too by the end of this blog.

I strongly suspect that we are definitely not alone in the universe. Are we ?

But first lets logically analyse what is the probability of reciving guests from other planets or galaxies.

So putting things in prospective. We are on planet earth which has a circumference of 40,075 km. Just one of the eight planets orbiting the Sun, our star which is just one of the 250 BILLION stars( by average mass) in our galaxy the milkyway.
image

The closest star to the sun is Alpha Centaury, which is 4 light years away.
Our galaxy has a span of 1,00,000 light years, ie even if we travell with the speed of light it will take us 1 lakh years just to cross our galaxy end to end, forget about reaching another galaxy.
image

Andromeda, the closest galaxy to us is at a distance of 2.5 Million light years from us. So if you are expecting any one from there,

any time soon you should sure hope as hell that they either started their journey 2.5 Million years back or they have the tech to travell real fast, as in ; even faster than the speed of light. 
image

But thats not all, we have barely stepped out of our backyard. The real journey starts from here.

GALAXY GROUP. A Group of Galaxies, form a Galaxy Group/ LOCAL GROUP. A galaxy gp could contain about 50 galaxies with a span of 10 million light years.
image

CLUSTER. A bunch of such gps of gallaxies say 50- 1000 galaxies forms a Cluster of Galaxies. With a diameter of about 10 megaparsecsie (32.6 million light years, one parsec = 3.26 lightyears)

SUPER CLUSTER A larger gp of local clusters forms a Super cluster with a span of 500 Million light years. That by the way is huge. 
image

GALACTIC SUPER CLUSTER This is basically all that we have mapped so far. The universe as we know it!. 
So to summarise all this

Our galaxy -1 lakh light years across. 
Nearest galaxy -2.5 Million light years away 
Local cluster – 10 million LY span 
Cluster – 33 million light years span 
Super Cluster – 500 million LY Span.

Well thats a lot of – Space… to travell to get to us or for us to get going.

But lets not get disheartened. There is a lot happening in our neighbourhood. Our own solar system is bubling with activity be it on Mars or Jupiter’s volcanically active moon IO or saturn’s nitrogen based titan and Enceladus which is suspected to have a liquid ocean underneath its surface or be it Europa. The possiblities are endless.
Mars is just the beginning. The universe is coming to us…
