Little about the LHC - Large Hadron Collider

Large Hadron Collider – LHC, in general, the LHC refers to a machine that deserves to be labeled the “Largest” in the world made by human which is weighs more than 38,000 tons (thirty eight thousands). This machine is located 100 meters beneath the Swiss / French Border at Geneva which is runs for 27 km (16.5 mile) in a circulated tunnel but as an international project the LHC crosses continents and many international borders..

The LHC (Large Hadron Collider) is an International Project, in which the UK has a leading role in this project and has scientists and engineers working on all the main experiments. The LHC’s 27 km loop in a sense encircles the globe, because the LHC project is supported by an enormous international community of scientists and engineers. Working in multinational teams, at CERN and around the world, they are building and testing LHC equipment and software, participating in experiments and analyzing data.

However, the Collider is only one of three essential parts of the LHC project. The other two are:
  • The Detectors: which sit in 4 huge chambers at points around the LHC tunnel.
  • The GRID: which is a global network of computers and software essential to processing the data recorded by LHC’s detectors.

What will this Big Machine (LHC) do:
The LHC will allow scientists to probe deeper into the heart of matter and further back in time than has been possible using previous colliders. Researchers think that the Universe originated in the Big Bang (an unimaginably violent explosion) and since then the Universe has been cooling down and becoming less energetic. Very early in the cooling process the matter and forces that make up our world ‘condensed’ out of this ball of energy.

The LHC will produce tiny patches of very high energy by colliding together atomic particles that are travelling at very high speed. The more energy produced in the collisions the further back we can look towards the very high energies that existed early in the evolution of the Universe. Collisions in the LHC will have up to 7x the energy of those produced in previous machines; recreating energies and conditions that existed billionths of a second after the start of the Big Bang.

How does the LHC Work:
The LHC accelerates two beams of atomic particles in opposite directions around the 27km long Collider. When the particle beams reach their maximum speed the LHC allows them to ‘collide’ at 4 points on their circular journey. Thousands of new particles are produced when particles collide and detectors, placed around the collision points, allow scientists to identify these new particles by tracking their behavior.

The detectors are able to follow the millions of collisions and new particles produced every second and identify the distinctive behavior of interesting new particles from among the many thousands that are of little interest. As the energy produced in the collisions increases researchers are able to peer deeper into the fundamental structure of the Universe and further back in its history. In these extreme conditions unknown atomic particles may appear.

Thanks a lot for reading and viewing this post. If you are more interested to know further details about this Biggest Scientific Machine - LHC, please visit the web portal of LHC.

Little about our own Solar System

Readers / Viewers,
Geography was one of my favorite subject in school. I've drawn lot's of pictures and wrote lot's of descriptions about the Solar System in the exams. Here, I am presenting this post about our own Solar System with some images and descriptions of the planets. All the credit of the images in this post goes to NASA.

Beyond our Solar System:
When we leave the solar system, we find our star and its planets are just one small part of the Milky Way galaxy. The Milky Way is a huge city of stars, so big that even at the speed of light; it would take 100,000 years to travel across it. All the stars in the night sky, including our Sun, are just some of the residents of this galaxy, along with millions of other stars too faint to be seen. Beyond our own galaxy lies a vast expanse of galaxies. The deeper we see into space, the more galaxies we discover. There are billions of galaxies, the most distant of which are so far away that the light arriving from them on Earth today set out from the galaxies billions of years ago.

The Sun:
The sun is a medium sized star in our own Galaxy Milky Way, a hot ball of glowing gases at the heart of our solar system. Its influence extends far beyond the orbits of distant Neptune and Pluto. Without the sun's intense energy and heat, there would be no life on Earth. And though it is special to us, there are billions of stars like our sun scattered across the Milky Way galaxy. A little about the Sun:
  • Distance from Earth:  149,597,900 km
  • Mean Radius:  695,508 km
  • Volume:  1,409,272,569,059,860,000 km3
  • Mass:  1,989,100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 kg

Sun-scorched Mercury is only slightly larger than Earth's Moon. Like the Moon, Mercury has very little atmosphere to stop impacts, and it is covered with craters. Mercury's day side is super-heated by the sun, but at night temperatures drop hundreds of degrees below freezing. Ice may even exist in craters. Mercury's egg-shaped orbit takes it around the sun every 88 days. A little about the Mercury:
  • Orbit Size (semi-major axis):  57,909,227 km
  • Mean Radius:  2,439.7 km
  • Volume:  60,827,208,742 km3
  • Mass:  330,104,000,000,000,000,000,000 kg

Venus is a dim world of intense heat and volcanic activity. Similar in structure and size to Earth, Venus' thick, toxic atmosphere traps heat in a runaway "greenhouse effect." The scorched world has temperatures hot enough to melt lead. Glimpses below the clouds reveal volcanoes and deformed mountains. Venus spins slowly in the opposite direction of most planets. A little about the Venus:
  • Orbit Size (semi-major axis):  108,209,475 km
  • Mean Radius:  6,051.8 km
  • Volume:  928,415,345,893 km3
  • Mass:  4,867,320,000,000,000,000,000,000 kg

Earth is an ocean planet. Our home world's abundance of water and life makes it unique in our solar system. Other planets, plus a few moons, have ice, atmospheres, seasons and even weather, but only on Earth does the whole complicated mix come together in a way that encourages life and lots of it. A little about our Planet EARTH:
  • Orbit Size (semi-major axis): 149,598,262 km
  • Mean Radius:  6,371.00 km
  • Volume:  1,083,206,916,846 km3
  • Mass:  5,972,190,000,000,000,000,000,000 kg

Mars is a cold desert world. It is half the diameter of Earth and has the same amount of dry land. Like Earth, Mars has seasons, polar ice caps, volcanoes, canyons and weather, but its atmosphere is too thin for liquid water to exist for long on the surface. There are signs of ancient floods on Mars, but evidence for water now exists mainly in icy soil and thin clouds. A little about the Mars:
  • Orbit Size (semi-major axis):  227,943,824 km
  • Mean Radius:  3,389.5 km
  • Volume:  163,115,609,799 km3
  • Mass:  641,693,000,000,000,000,000,000 kg

Jupiter, the most massive planet in our solar system -- with dozens of moons and an enormous magnetic field -- forms a kind of miniature solar system. Jupiter does resemble a star in composition, but it did not grow big enough to ignite. The planet's swirling cloud stripes are punctuated by massive storms such as the Great Red Spot, which has raged for hundreds of years. Jupiter's appearance is a tapestry of beautiful colors and atmospheric features. Most visible clouds are composed of ammonia. Water vapor exists deep below and can sometimes be seen through clear spots in the clouds. The planet's "stripes" are dark belts and light zones created by strong east-west winds in Jupiter's upper atmosphere. A little about the Jupiter:
  • Orbit Size (semi-major axis):  778,340,821 km
  • Mean Radius:  69,911 km
  • Volume:  1,431,281,810,739,360 km3
  • Mass:  1,898,130,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 kg

Adorned with thousands of beautiful ringlets, Saturn is unique among the planets. All four gas giant planets have rings -- made of chunks of ice and rock -- but none are as spectacular or as complicated as Saturn's. Like the other gas giants, Saturn is mostly a massive ball of hydrogen and helium. A little about the Saturn:
  • Orbit Size (semi-major axis):  1,426,666,422 km
  • Mean Radius:  58,232 km
  • Volume:  827,129,915,150,897 km3
  • Mass:  568,319,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 kg

Uranus is the only giant planet whose equator is nearly at right angles to its orbit. A collision with an Earth-sized object may explain Uranus' unique tilt. Nearly a twin in size to Neptune, Uranus has more methane in it’s mainly hydrogen and helium atmosphere than Jupiter or Saturn. Methane gives Uranus its blue tint. A little about the Uranus:
  • Orbit Size (semi-major axis):  2,870,658,186 km
  • Mean Radius:  25,362 km
  • Volume:  68,334,355,695,584 km3
  • Mass:  86,810,300,000,000,000,000,000,000 kg

Dark, cold and whipped by supersonic winds, Neptune is the last of the hydrogen and helium gas giants in our solar system. More than 30 times as far from the sun as Earth, the planet takes almost 165 Earth years to orbit our sun. In 2011 Neptune completed its first orbit since its discovery in 1846. A little about the Neptune:
  • Orbit Size (semi-major axis):  4,498,396,441 km
  • Mean Radius:  24,622 km
  • Volume:  62,525,703,987,421 km3
  • Mass:  102,410,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 kg

Others in our Solar System:
Earth’s Moon:
Our Moon makes Earth a more livable planet by moderating our home planet's wobble on its axis, leading to a relatively stable climate, and creating a rhythm that has guided humans for thousands of years. The Moon was likely formed after a Mars-sized body collided with Earth and the debris formed into the most prominent feature in our night sky. A little the Moon:
  • Orbit Size (semi-major axis):  384,400 km
  • Mean Radius:  1737.5 km
  • Volume:  21,971,669,064 km3
  • Mass:  73,476,730,924,573,500,000,000 kg

Asteroids are rocky, airless worlds that orbit our sun, but are too small to be called planets. Tens of thousands of these "minor planets" are gathered in the main asteroid belt, a vast doughnut-shaped ring between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. Asteroids that pass close to Earth are called Near-Earth Objects (NEOs).

Little chunks of rock and debris in space are called meteoroids. They become meteors -- or shooting stars -- when they fall through a planet's atmosphere, leaving a bright trail as they are heated to incandescence by the friction of the atmosphere. Pieces that survive the journey and hit the ground are called meteorites.

Comets are cosmic snowballs of frozen gases, rock and dust roughly the size of a small town. When a comet's orbit brings it close to the sun, it heats up and spews dust and gases into a giant glowing head larger than most planets. The dust and gases form a tail that stretches away from the sun for millions of kilometers.

Dwarf Planets:
What is a planet? Greek astronomers came up with the word to describe the bright points of light that seemed to wander among fixed stars. Our solar system's planet count has soared as high as 15 before it was decided that some discoveries were different and should be called asteroids. Many disagreed in 1930 when Pluto was added as our solar system's ninth planet. The debate flared again in 2005 when Eris about the same size as Pluto was found deep in a zone beyond Neptune called the Kuiper Belt. Was it the 10th planet? Or are Eris and Pluto examples of an intriguing, new kind of world?
The International Astronomical Union decided in 2006 that a new system of classification was needed to describe these new worlds, which are more developed than asteroids, but different than the known planets. Pluto, Eris and the asteroid Ceres became the first dwarf planets. Unlike planets, dwarf planets lack the gravitational muscle to sweep up or scatter objects near their orbits. They end up orbiting the sun in zones of similar objects such as the asteroid and Kuiper belts. Our solar system's planet count now stands at eight. But the lively debate continues as we continue to explore and make new discoveries.

The Kuiper Belt and Oort Cloud:
The Kuiper Belt is a disc-shaped region of icy objects beyond the orbit of Neptune -- billions of kilometers from our sun. Pluto and Eris are the best known of these icy worlds. There may be hundreds more of these ice dwarfs out there. The Kuiper Belt and even more distant Oort Cloud are believed to be the home of comets that orbit our sun.

Solar Electric Scooter - Future Vehicle

Hello Readers,
The 21st Century is the age of Advanced Technology. The World is moving fast due to the technological development in various sectors. Some Advanced / Cutting Edge Technologies bringing some new and impressive equipment which are making our life easier and safer.

This is the first post in this blog about some new Cutting Edge Technologies. Hope that I will post regularly in this blog NEWS and REVIEWS about some Cutting Edge Technologies. The topic of today’s post is the SES - Solar Electric Scooter, which is a single persons vehicle designed for short range urban travel.  It has gone through multiple design cycles to come up with the perfect balance of sleek design and efficiency. The SES is developed by the brilliant team at Solar Electric Scooters, Inc. USA.

A little about the SES:
  • The Solar Electric Scooter has two wheels, front and rear and the operator stands on a platform approximately eight inches off the ground.
  • In the front there is an adjustable goose neck with handlebars on top.
  • There is a twist grip throttle on the right and hand brake levers on each side that operate the disc brakes on both wheels.
  • The platform that the operator stands on is a Solar Electric Panel.
Electrical power is stored in a “state of the art” Lithium Ion battery located under the platform.  The battery can be charged three ways:
  1. Leave the scooter in the sun and it will automatically charge “sun up”.
  2. Remove the battery and connect it to an external charger that plugs into any power outlet in your houses or work places.
  3. Pull the retractable cord out of the control box and plug into any standard power outlet When you drive an SES you are part of the solution to making the world a better place.

Some features of the SES:
  • Speed gets Zero to Fifteen mph (0 to 15) in 3.7 seconds, now that’s pretty impressive.
  • 20 mile range after full charging.
  • Speed is 15 (fifteen) mile per hour.
  • No insurance.
  • No registration.
  • No license.

On the site the company gave an example about how you can save your money. You can pay for your SES in the money you save on gas, insurance and the cost of parking. Such as, if a student at a Southern California university were to use the SES instead of a car and commute to and from school a distance of 4 miles and make that trip 4 times a week, the savings in gas, insurance and parking will cover the cost of the scooter in one school year, (nine months).

Please go the web portal of the inventor of this New Technology for further details, Solar Electric Scooter Inc.

Thanks a lot for reading this post.

NASA's Kepler Mission discovers Earth-like-Planet

Scientists do not know whether life could exist on the new found planets, but their discovery signals we are another step closer to finding a world similar to Earth around a star like our sun. The Kepler space telescope, which simultaneously and continuously measures the brightness of more than 150,000 stars, is NASA's first mission capable of detecting Earth-size planets around stars like our sun.

The Kepler Mission of NASA has discovered two new planetary systems that include three super-Earth-size planets in the "habitable zone," the range of distance from a star where the surface temperature of an orbiting planet might be suitable for liquid water.
  • The Kepler-62 system has five planets; 62b, 62c, 62d, 62e and 62f.
  • The Kepler-69 system has two planets; 69b and 69c.
Among all the planets, Kepler-62e, 62f and 69c are the super-Earth-sized planets.

The image below (artists concept) compares the planets of the inner solar system to Kepler-69, a two-planet system about 2,700 light-years away from the Earth.

The image below (artists concept) compares the planets of the inner solar system to Kepler-62, a five-planet system about 1,200 light-years from Earth. 

  • Two of the newly discovered planets orbit a star smaller and cooler than the sun. Kepler-62f is only 40 percent larger than Earth. Kepler-62f is likely to have a rocky composition.
  • Kepler-62e, orbits on the inner edge of the habitable zone and is roughly 60 percent larger than Earth
  • The third planet, Kepler-69c, is 70 percent larger than the size of Earth, and orbits in the habitable zone of a star similar to our sun. Astronomers are uncertain about the composition of Kepler-69c, but its orbit of 242 days around a sun-like star resembles that of our neighboring planet Venus. 
Orbiting its star every 122 days, Kepler-62e was the first of these habitable zone planets identified. Kepler-62f, with an orbital period of 267 days, was later found by Eric Agol, associate professor of astronomy at the University of Washington and co-author of a paper on the discoveries published in the journal Science. The size of Kepler-62f is now measured, but its mass and composition are not.

The two habitable zone worlds orbiting Kepler-62 have three companions in orbits closer to their star, two larger than the size of Earth and one about the size of Mars. Kepler-62b, Kepler-62c and Kepler-62d, orbit every five, 12, and 18 days, respectively, making them very hot and inhospitable for life as we know it.

The five planets of the Kepler-62 system orbit a star classified as a K2 dwarf, measuring just two-thirds the size of the sun and only one-fifth as bright. At seven billion years old, the star is somewhat older than the sun. It is about 1,200 light-years from Earth in the constellation Lyra.

"We only know of one star that hosts a planet with life, the sun. Finding a planet in the habitable zone around a star like our sun is a significant milestone toward finding truly Earth-like planets," said Thomas Barclay, Kepler scientist at the Bay Area Environmental Research Institute in Sonoma, California, and lead author of the Kepler-69 system discovery published in the Astrophysical Journal.

Early in the mission, the Kepler telescope primarily found large, gaseous giants in very close orbits of their stars. Known as "hot Jupiter’s," these are easier to detect due to their size and very short orbital periods. Earth would take three years to accomplish the three transits required to be accepted as a planet candidate. As Kepler continues to observe, transit signals of habitable zone planets the size of Earth orbiting stars like the sun will begin to emerge.

Internet Data Services from Airtel BD

This post is about the various Internet settings and packages from the Airtel Bangladesh. Access the internet using GPRS / EDGE network of Airtel and stay connected to the information super highway anytime, anywhere.

At present, there are three ways to access the internet using Airtel connection.
  1. Surf the internet directly from your handset, either through WWW or through WAP depending on your handset compatibility.
  2. You can use your Airtel Handset as a modem and connect it to a PC via USB cable / IrDA / Bluetooth etc
  3. You can insert your Airtel SIM card in an EDGE PC Data card and use the card with your laptop / desktop.
1. Using Mobile Internet on your Phone:
To use Mobile Internet there are certain steps you need to follow:
  • Step-1: You need to have a GPRS/MMS compatible handset.
  • Step-2: Your handset needs to be configured for GPRS/EDGE.
As soon as you insert an Airtel SIM card in your handset for the first time, it will automatically initiate a handset configuration request. If you have a GPRS / EDGE compatible handset, you will soon receive an SMS notification for each of the settings (MMS, WAP, INTERNET etc). To avail these services, you just have to save the settings in your handset after receiving via SMS. In case your handset prompts for a password please enter 1234. If you have incidentally not saved these settings, simply go to your Airtel menu to receive these settings through SMS. As soon as you saved the settings, you will be ready to surf the internet using pay-as-you-go GPRS / EDGE package from Airtel.

2. Using Mobile Internet on your PC:
You can also use your Airtel SIM with your computer and laptop to access the internet. Just follow the simple steps below:

Using your mobile phone as a modem:
Connecting your GPRS / EDGE phone to a laptop / desktop allows the phone to function as a wireless data modem, bringing internet to your PC. There are a number of ways in which you can connect your handset to your computer to make it works like a modem:

a. Bluetooth:
Some mobile phones, laptops and PDAs (Personal Digital Assistants) come with built-in Bluetooth. You can pair both your mobile phone and the laptop/PDA for connectivity communication. This gives you the comfort of being connected cable-free

How to use Bluetooth for Connectivity:
  • Step 1: Turn Bluetooth on in your mobile menu (for some models, you may need to turn on the search mode as well)
  • Step 2: Look for "My Bluetooth place” in your computer. Select “Add Bluetooth Device” and add your mobile phone
  • Step 3: Start setting up the modem.
b. Infrared:
Nowadays, most of the mobile phones support Infrared Port (IR-Port) connections. When an IR-port compatible handset is aligned to a PC or laptop, it allows for the two devices to communicate among each other without the use of wires.

How to use Infrared for Connectivity:
  • Step 1: Turn the IR-port on in your mobile phone from your menu options, and also in the laptop
  • Step 2: Place your phone close to your computer (generally up to 1 meter)
  • Step 3: Start setting up the modem.
* Please remember that, for most of the cases, the infrared connection is limited up to 1 m and the mobile device has to be placed within line of sight of the computer.

c. USB Cable:
It is also possible to connect your mobile phone to your computer using USB (or serial) cables. Sometimes, these cables are included with your handset package; if not, these cables can be purchased separately from most electronic stores.

How to use USB Cable for Connectivity:
  • Step 1: Connect your mobile phone to your computer with the USB cable
  • Step 2: Start setting up the modem
Setting up the modem:
For USB and Infrared set-ups:
After your phone has been connected to your computer using USB / IR-port the operational system in your computer will find a new device and will automatically set it up as a modem. In these cases, the operational system will set up the needed software (drivers) by itself.  However, it is possible that some additional software might need to be installed to complete the process. In this case, you can get the required software from the compact discs which are supplied with your mobile phone, or drivers you can download them from the website of your handset company.

For Bluetooth set-ups:
For mobiles that have been set-up using Bluetooth, the Bluetooth adapter program will add the new modem to the system). After this has been done, you need to set up the remote connection

3. Using a Data Card as a modem:
An EDGE PC Data Card is an alternative solution that you can use to insert your Airtel SIM in your laptop and bring internet connectivity to your computer! Most laptops come with Data Card slots. The Data Card slot is generally located on the left or right hand side of your laptop, and will generally have two available locations for the cards to be connected. As you can see in the below picture, the card has to be inserted in the laptop horizontally.

Remote Connection:
Go to these following options in your computer:

Start > All Programs > accessories > Communications > New connections wizard > 
Select “Connection to Internet”, press “Next”, select “Setup connection manual”, “Through modem”

  • Select the “Connect to internet / Connectivity” option that will appear in your computer screen to connect to the internet
  • A connection icon will be displayed in the Task Bar of your PC, confirming that you have been connected to the net!
Thanks for reading.For further info please visit the web portal of Airtel BD.
