What else can be cold comfort at an island that has witnessed and recorded more than 50,000 earthquakes, but still trying hands at fun science experiments like cooking hotdogs and eggs in lava? Continue reading
We’ve all had that childhood sisters/brothers who used to terrify us by saying dreadful stories or something that doesn’t even exist. I must have been in my 1st or 2nd grade when I was introduced to the concept of ‘glassics’. Let me tell you what glassics are.

I started the previous post with technical jargon, which included uplinks and downlinks. That gave me the thought of space, and I got inspiration from a recent news article of planets visible to the naked eye. Continue reading
