Scientist Propose to Dim the Sun to Combat Global Warming

Recently Scientists from Harward and Yale suggested tackling the problem of Global Warming from another end. They published a study which says spraying a large amount of Sulfate Particles into Earth's Stratosphere can reduce the number of sun rays striking the Earth and in this way, global warming threat can be overcomed.

They said instead of asking people and authorities to reduce CO2 emissions we should focus on this method too.

This is completely hypothetical and there is no guarantee if it would succeed.

It will consume a lot of time and money and there is no such aircraft who can deliver such payload.

The researchers discuss a variety of potential ways to accomplish the large-scale ‘geoengineering’ project: planes, balloons, or even just shooting chemicals in the air with large guns.

If Scientist uses currently available SpaceX falcon heavy rocket, the launch could be accomplished in 15 years with initial cost about 3.5 billion and later 2.5 billion each for 15 years.

There are other technical issues like cooperation by the countries including the United States, who's Donald Trump who is unaware of Global warming.

Stephen Hawking's Final Book gives brief Answers to Big Questions

Stephen Hawking's final work was launched by his children on Monday which discuss issues from Existence of God to Time Travel and other big questions. His children completed his final book after he died last year.

Stephen started his book last year to answer the common question which he encountered many times from public. The title of the book is ''Brief Answers to Big Questions''.

His daughter, Lucy Hawking, said he was regularly asked for such question and this book contains his clear and most authentic answers. We all wish he was here to see it published, she added.

What are these big questions and what did he write answers to them?


Is there a God?How Did it All Began?What is inside a black hole?Can we predict the future?Is Time Travel possible?Will we survive on Earth?Is there any other intelligent life in Universe?Should we colonize space?How do we shape the future?Multiple challenges Stephen Hawking says the simplest explanation is that God does not exist and…

Russia Trying to Bring back Extinct Animals

A research facility is being settled in a region of Russia by Vladimir Putin at 4th Economic Eastern Forum which aims to study the remains and clone extinct animals like woolly mammoth, woolly rhinoceros, cave lion and breeds of long-gone horses of old times.





The investment sought for this project is 5.9Million USD.

The animals which could weight 6000 kg have been disappeared from that territory about 4 thousands years ago.

About 80% of the samples of the extinct animals with preserved tissue have been found in this region Siberia .  







Human flights to ISS will begin in 2019

NASA has confirmed that manned space flight will be carried by SpaceX and Boeing in the mid of 2019.SpaceX rocket for ISS will depart in June 2019 while Boeing spacecraft will go in August 2019.
It will be the first US mission since the retirement of the shuttle in 2011.NASA's astronauts are currently using Russian made Soyuz spacecraft and its contract will end in June 2019.NASA said on 4th of the October that it will give monthly updates 


Phil McAlister who is the director of commercial flights in NASA said in Blog that 

New Updates schedule is better but launch schedule may be uncertainHe also said these are new spacecraft and lot of engineering work has to be done before take off.

Back in 2014 both the SpaceX and Boeing received $6.8bn from NASA to build spacecraft that will take humans to ISS.

Boeing has said they will be ready for Orbital Flight Test in March 2019.
The Success of this manned space shuttle will be a great achievement of the commercial space industry, and NASA will …
