Nano Technology gives sensitive read-out heads for compact hard disks This year's physics prize is awarded for the technology that is used to read data on hard disks. It is thanks to this technology that it has been possible to miniaturize hard disks so radically in recent years. Sensitive read-out heads are needed to be able to read data from the compact hard disks used in laptops and some music players, for instance.

In 1988 the Frenchman Albert Fert and the German Peter Grünberg each independently discovered a totally new physical effect – Giant Magnetoresistance or GMR. Very weak magnetic changes give rise to major differences in ele…

Perpetual Motion

The documented search for perpetual motion begins in the 13th century. Villard de Honnescourt drew designs for such machines at that time. There may be earlier designs, but perpetual motion is closely linked to machines, especially rotating machines, and machines are neither widespread nor very sophisticated before this time. Before the invention of electric or gasoline motors there were limited ways to supply power to do work. Waterwheels, tidewheels, and windmills supplied power only in certain locations; man and animals supplied all the portable power. People who had no access to a suitable stream, estuary, or windy hill-top sought alternatives, and inventors attempted to supply them with perpetual motion machines. The search continues to the present day. More recent designs for perpetual motion appear in response to crises, like the energy crisis, or high costs of fuels, or some poorly understood technological need.

Perpetual motion refers to a condition in which an object continue…

Yin and yang

The concepts of Yin and Yang originate in ancient Chinese philosophy and metaphysics, which describes two primal opposing but complementary forces found in all things in the universe.Yin (Chinese: 陰/阴; pinyin: yīn; literally "shady place, north slope (hill), south bank (river); cloudy, overcast") is the darker element; it is passive, dark, feminine, downward-seeking, and corresponds to the night.Yang (陽/阳; yáng; "sunny place, south slope (hill), north bank (river); sunshine") is the brighter element; it is active, light, masculine, upward-seeking and corresponds to the day. Yin is often symbolized by water or earth, while Yang is symbolized by fire, or wind.Yin (receptive, feminine, dark, passive force) and Yang (creative, masculine, bright, active force) are descriptions of complementary opposites rather than absolutes. Any Yin/Yang dichotomy can be seen as its opposite when viewed from another perspective. The categorization is seen as one of convenience. Most fo…


The Largest Number . Currently existing

You can say that if you add one the that will be larger than googol plex.

Ok then you cannot add one to the infinity it is then still infinity???

So Googol Plex is

10^1 1 with 1 zero, 1010^10 1 with 10 zeros, 10,000,000,000 (5cm distance to moon, age of universe)10^100 1 with 100 zeros, a Googol, 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,
000,000 (1st line, km, edge of universe)10^Googol 1 with Googol zeros, a Googol-Plex, 10,000,000,000..........
Cannot even imagine how big is


In vedic concepts vellam is the biggest number
I will be back with the whole list

That is googol plex

We Are Very Small

Now, THIS is really fascinating - I've never really given this any thought whatsoever, but it's rather dazzling to see it presented this way.

Step 2 The Jupiter

We Are Going to Sun :- Star in the solar system We Cannot see .

Next Some Neighbours
Let us see

Now Some Big Ones :- Small ones in the universe

Antares is the 15th brightest star in the sky. It is more than 1000 light years away.

Some Make a guess How large is the universe

And to think that each of us is but one person (out of a few billion) on earth and The Creator cares about each of us.

We are Nothing in the Universe

Science Circuits

New Scientific Ideas. Ideas form Theories. Experiments supports them.

Sometimes a Villain Enters and revamp the theory.

Then Science Change the theory. That is Scientific Method. Changes are essential.

Change is happen every time. Every theory is subjected to change.
