New Horizons Has Caught Its First Color Pic of Pluto

Lights in the Dark

In a historic first – just one of many that will be made over the next several months, to be sure! – the New Horizons spacecraft captured its first color image of Pluto and its partner/satellite Charon on April 9 from a distance of 71 million miles – about equivalent to that between Venus and the Sun. The orange blobs above are the two worlds locked in an orbital dance a mere 12,200 miles apart… that’s 20 times less than the distance between Earth and the Moon!

The image was captured with New Horizons’ “Ralph” instrument, a Multispectral Visible Imaging Camera (MVIC) built for the mission by Ball Aerospace (which is a spinoff of the same company that became famous in the U.S. for its glass canning jars.)

Ralph is one of six science instruments aboard New Horizons; it is paired with…

8th March, International Women’s Day

                               images (2)

Again came , “The International Women”s Day”. The journey that started years back

In the way, women got to know the strength in her wings and she took off. Although

this is just the start of a beautiful expedition, the destination is yet far away. But will 

she ever reach her destiny living in a society which is ready to slaughter her wings 

every now and then. On every women’s day, the society yells about respecting women

and the very next day she is perished, fighting for her own existence. The society claims 

to give her equal status as men but with number of stipulations laid down just for her.

Even the song of the famous pop singer Beyonce ,  “If I Were A Boy” seems to criticize

all the showoffs of a hypocrite society which claims to modern in all its forms.The songs  

is girl’s plea for freedom. The freedom that she has to beseech as a daughter from her

parents, as a girlfriend from her boyfriend and as a wife from her husband. Just allowing

her to wear short skirts doesn’t make you unprejudiced towards her in any sense. Moreover,

the day when they will be allowed to leave their houses late at night without even brooding

about their safety,the day when they will not be told by men what to do and what not, when

their decisions will be respected, that will make the society liberal towards them in true aspects,

that will be the day when a women will celebrate the women,s day veritably…

Stretch Your Wings & Fly

break free

Human beings like every other creature were born free, but it looks like we are no long at liberty .

There is a bondage that is epidemic. Each one of us is locked in some kind of prison, whether physical or mental.

Furthermore we keep brooding, “what if I do this ..”? What everyone else is going to think..? & somewhere in 

the mid of this we despairingly fasten ourselves to hefty invisible chains. We will never realize our existence unless

we break these chains & do what we are really eager to do. The grave problem is that we have slaughtered the “mini me”

inside us to feed the useless convictions of our brain & that gently yelling voice of our conscience has faded away

which once told us to do all that gave us joy & immense satisfaction. Finally the “mini me” dies & we end up 

complaining that we had a boring & miserable life. All the way through this we never realize that the key to these chains

are within us & we spend all our lives in slavery. So we really need to discover what creates peace for us & we will

start loving whatever we do. All one requires is to  let go off one’s fear because if you want to end the story of your

life , the way you decide, all you got to do is “break the chains & fly high”……….
