NASA deemed to make ‘Interstellar’ sci-fi into reality with the Cryosleep…

 

“We must reach far beyond than our own lifespans…”

This is the principal theory of the much awaited Christopher Nolan’s Sci-Fi movie, ‘Interstellar’, which anticipates to find a way for our existence in deep space… Interestingly, it seems that NASA has taken this concept of ‘reaching far beyond’ a bit more literally, as for the first time an endorsed statement came from the officials that NASA is planning for a Manned ‘Mission to Mars’ via Cryosleep

During this year’s ‘International Astronomical Congress’, which took place from Sept 29th to Oct 3rd in Toronto, NASA teamed up with ‘Spaceworks’, an Atlanta based aerospace company, that is investigating procedures for putting space crews into hibernation. But this doesn’t mean that the entire crew will be snoozing in their capsules, when the whole world are keeping their trust on them as atleast one crew member will be awake at a time for two to three days before going back into stasis for 14 days.

Cryosleep, which can also be referred as ‘Cryostasis’ is a process by which the person is brought into sleep and thus slowing the life processes by exogenous or endogenous means… This technology is different from that of the Cryopreservation, which can only be legally performed on humans after they have been pronounced dead.

Therapeutic torpors will be used to reduce the body metabolism and temperatures, which naturally happens during hypothermia. During the mission, the torpor would be induced via a ‘Rhinochill’ – a device that uses invasive tubes to shoot cooling liquid up the nose and into the base of the brain.

The upcoming Sci-Fi movie, Interstellar greatly reflects this concept of Cryosleep, where the crew is made to hibernate in cryo capsules, which keep them alive for the journey to the other end of the space and thus to save the humanity from extinction… Cryosleep is not such a new concept for the movie enthusiasts as many major films counting Avatar, Aliens and 2001: A Space Odyssey have already depicted it.

Though the Mission to Mars comprises around ‘180 days of Space travel’ and carries no direct comparison with the ‘Interstellar travelling’, visionaries say that Cryostasis is not just the solution for keeping the cosmonauts alive for longer periods, but it may also reduce the total expenses of the cruise as there will be a drastic reduction in the size of the spaceships, there won’t be need for food, oxygen and other equipment to keep the crew occupied throughout the voyage as most of the time they will be in deep stasis…

Now how do you think ‘Captain America’ survived years together without having his daily diet…?

Forest – For Rest …?

Millions of years ago, there was an event named “ Carboniferous Rainforest Collapse ”, where sharp climatic changes destroyed tropical rainforests, causing the extinction of many plant and animal species… Since then, there was a gradual decrease in the worldwide greenery…

The decline in the forest affected the climatic conditions and those climatic conditions declined the forests even further…

It’s hard to believe that a single event could change the course of the history. And one thing which comes along with the history is – It cannot be changed…

Change – Change in the human behaviour – change in the course of the nature or in this case ‘ gradual increase in the forest cover ‘… On this World Forestry Day – 21st March, let’s celebrate this change and make it as an example for the coming generations…

Earlier it was thought that the decline in the forest area is unstoppable and inevitable; forget about the increment, many organisations fought just to stop the unnecessary destruction… Forest area, which contains about 90% of the world’s terrestrial biodiversity, was soon assumed to be taking rest – forever…

Forest – for rest …?

Everything went gloomy and downhearted not until the dragon country – China determined for the “ Green wall of China “  project. And now, its forest cover which was 12% some two decades ago grown to 16.55%… And each present growth in the forest area can remove billions of tons of carbon each year, emitted into the atmosphere. Now that’s what called the best example you could set for the future generations…

Forest – for the best…!

            So let’s cheer for all those who created history and let’s start working together so that the possible extinction could be prevented.

Let’s do it for our ‘Mother’ Nature…

Thor – Director General of the Energy Corporation…!

If you have ever forgotten a phone charger, you know what it’s like to wander through an airport – staring at all the available electrical sockets you just can’t use… All that electricity available for taking – only if you had the right equipment…

It fits very similar in the case of the ‘lightning’…

With each bolt of lightning carrying a relatively large amount of energy of about ‘5 billion joules’, the concept of “harnessing the power from the lightning” is mouth-watering…

But why aren’t we making progress in this arena…?

Well, harnessing the energy from the lightning is just not as easy as it feels. With a bolt travelling some thousand fold times faster than ‘Usain Bolt’ ,the machinery must be very efficient to absorb such a large amounts of energy in such a short span of time…And even though if you designed such a massive infrastructure, you can’t afford to install them in ‘every corner of the world’…

‘Unpredictability’ and the ‘stabilised control of the input’ are the other factors which delay the production of this much awaiting form of energy.

And this is exactly where Thor can come into play…

He can use his hammer to focus all the lightning on a single power plant, in a much controlled manner. Thus can solve all the above stated problems…

Long live Thor – Director General of the Energy Corporation…

And as a matter of fact, How is electricity manufactured in your planet..?

Lets light hopes in this planet...

Comet Ison is still ‘on’…!

Well… The brightest comet of the century, Comet Ison ‘is on’ after it just survived a close encounter with the Sun…The comet first seemed to have fallen apart as it approached the sun’s surface, but the new images showed a streak of light moving away from the sun – which means that the hope is still ‘on’ for Ison…

So – how did it survive the sun..? Not definitely by using some strong “sun screen lotion”, I guess. So here we are left with 3 theories to support this surprising phenomenon. Pick the best one at your own risk…

  • THEORY 1 :-  Tony Stark – Ironman created a strong force-field around the comet so that he could preserve that brightest comet for the future use, where the comet Ison is going to be read “ Stark Industries – The brightest from the rest…”

That’s his ego going really crazy…

  • THEORY 2 :-  Transformers – Optimus Prime earlier reviled to media that comet Ison is nothing but – Intact Space-time Overturn Network [ I.S.O.N ], which could actually overturn the time, once it is energized to the higher energy levels…

And thus it actually travelled time to survive from the sun…

  • THEORY 3 :-  Professor Sybill Trelawney – The Hogwarts teacher of Divination might have foreseen the future of the comet Ison and casted a strong repulsive spell on it so that she might utilize this opportunity to show the students and the reaming staff that she was right about the premonition she predicted for ‘Peeves’…

Now that’s one dedicated teacher…

So – whatever might be the reason, Ison survived and it is coming straight towards us [ hopefully ] to showcase its dazzling beauty in the night sky…Lets enjoy it…

The future of ‘T’ – Time traveling,Tachyons and T-800s…!

Tourism had always been vibe with lot of emotions, thanks to the most dominant species on this Earth that our travelling isn’t just some migrating from the climatic adversities. It is actually much more than that…And now, lets cheer for every tourist around the world,on this ‘World Tourism Day’ on Sept 27th and which brings to me next question., What is tourism without travelling and then, what’s the future of travelling..? Surely we have our footprints on air, water and land [ I am also including moon here…] But what about the most mysterious ocean of which we discussed only in the fantasies…The mysterious ocean of time…

Well, its not literally an ocean, or our Captain Jack Sparrow would steer his Black Pearl through it…And unless you are some terminator T-800 or some mysterious X-men who can control the Tachyons, present in the hypothetical world, there is no easy means to sail through this ocean…

But that doesn’t mean that there is no other way to travel the time. The most simple one is to wait for another 30-40 years… [ hmm… why should we wait for something, which should actually stop our waiting..? ] well, it is really complex, but believe me, the renowned scientist Stephen Hawking actually proposed few ways to travel through time and as now, we have everything to make It possible. Everything expect Technology…But don’t get disappointed, as I am going to propose two such ways to travel in time – and if you ask about technology, you take care of it yourself…

Merry ‘Go Round’  :-

Love those bright stars and other heavenly bodies in the sky ? Then you can actually travel time by sitting in a Space Shuttle, and all you need to do is to revolve round a huge Black Hole, without actually falling into it. [ even light can’t escape through it, but you need to…] And if at all you are some survivor like Wolverine…then who knows, you may actually witness 2040 Olympics with just few years in space…!

The Future Express  :-

So – scared of those Black Holes and Space Shuttles, but still want to travel the time…? Well, there is actually an another way in which you don’t have to leave this Earth., where all you need to do is to travel around this globe… Sounds interesting ? Then let me tell you that, this ‘Future Express’ will travel near to the speed of light. And that means that travel about 7 times round the Earth in just 1 sec ! Now – did it sound interesting…?

So – Are there any other means to sail through this ocean, without any sophisticated technology..?

Well, there are actually many from ages. But we never gave a thought about them…You can actually travel ‘past’ by reading a great ‘Historical book’ and you can actually ‘teleport’ yourself into an another world by reading some ‘Fantasy’…And, as for the future – it better be ‘Wrapped’…it adds beauty to our lives, just as what a ‘Gift-Wrapper’ does to a birthday gift…

A little hope – a little anxiety – a little uncertainty, well…these are the little things that differentiate us from T-800s…
