UFO on Mars? Curiosity images create a flutter..!!
NASA's Mars Curiosity rover has captured images that have raised claims of UFO sightings on Mars. The images include one showing a white light moving across the horizon and another showing four blob-like objects hovering in the sky.
Viewers have expressed different opinions about what the blobs might be. According to the Daily Mail, NASA has so far not commented on the blobs but of course, alien hunters claim that they are alien ships monitoring human activity on Mars.
According to YouTube user StephenHannardADGUK, who posted the images to YouTube, members of group called Alien Disclosure UK (ADUK), first spotted the four specks of light on images NASA made available to the public. The brought the images out in relief by applying a series of filters.
StephenHannardADGUK, commenting on the lights, said: "Four objects caught by Mars Curiosity, very difficult to make out on original image so I have used a few filters to highlight. What are these four objects? UFO
The Huffington Post reports that video analyst Marc Dantonia, said the lights are only "dead pixels" in the image. He said that "dead pixels" are a regular occurrence in the world of graphics. He explained that they appear commonly in many computers and mobiles phones as well as in digital cameras. He explained: "After watching the video, it is actually quite clear that these are one-pixel sized image anomalies. I fully concur at this point that these are dead pixels on the imager. All CCD [cameras] have them, and in a bland atmosphere like that at Mars, they would be very obvious as opposed to an active atmosphere like Earth, where they could end up hidden for a long time before anyone noticed them."
In another set of images (see below), a white light appears to be moving across the Martian horizon. Although, the images caused excitement among UFO enthusiasts, NASA experts say they are only blemishes.
Nasa's Curiosity rover has captured a strange white light dancing across the horizon of Mars and four blobs hovering in the sky, which UFO hunters claim are alien ships monitoring humans' baby steps into the universe.
While the images are certainly a curiosity, Nasa and photography experts insist they are nothing more than blemishes on the images , picked up by the camera lens sitting on the rover. UFO on Mars? Curiosity images create a flutterNow that Curiosity passed its driving test on Mars, the six-wheel Nasa rover set its sights on longer treks.The first test drive around the pebbly Martian crater where it landed was just that — a test drive. The rover edged forward about 15 feet, rotated to a right angle and reversed a short distance, leaving tracks in the rust-tinged soil.Mission managers were elated that Wednesday's maiden trek of the $2.5 billion mission was glitchfree . In several days, Curiosity was poised to drive farther to study whether the red planet's environment could have supported life.
Tallest rail bridge in making, Engineering marvel in INDIA
The world’s highest rail bridge on the Chenab, which will provide a direct rail link to Kashmir, is likely to be completed by the end of 2015.The bridge — lying 65 kilometres from Katra — will rise 359 meters over the river. When completed, the bridge will be five times the height of Qutub Minar and 35 metres taller than Eiffel Tower.The bridge will be a scenic beauty as the train will come out of a 5.9km long tunnel from the Katra-end and pass through other bridges before it crosses the Chenab.
The 1,315-metre bridge will use 25,000 million tonnes of steel and is likely to be completed by the end of 2015, he said. It is likely to cost around Rs 650 crore.
Presently the world’s tallest rail bridge lies over France’s Tarn river and its tallest pillar rises 340 metres. However, the actual height at which trains run on the bridge is 300 metres. now,The Chenab bridge will be the highest in the world.
Wind speed,which may go up to 266 kmph at the height of 359 metres, can, however, be an irritant to the construction of the bridge. It has been decided not to allow trains to cross the Chenab if the wind velocity is more than 90 kmph.
International and national engineering agencies have also been roped in to facilitate the construction of the project, according to experts.
Leonardo da vinci ; Smartest person ever lived.!
Leonardo da Vinci was an Italian polymath, having been a scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, painter, sculptor, architect, botanist, musician and writer.Leonardo has often been described as the archetype of the "Renaissance man", a man whose seemingly infinite curiosity was equalled only by his powers of invention. He is widely considered to be one of the greatest painters of all time and perhaps the most diversely talented person ever to have lived.It is primarily as a painter that Leonardo was and is renowned. Two of his works, the Mona Lisa and The Last Supper occupy unique positions as the most famous, most reproduced and most parodied portrait and religious painting of all time. Leonardo's drawing of the Vitruvian Man is also iconic.
As an engineer, Leonardo's ideas were vastly ahead of his time. He conceptualised a helicopter, a tank, concentrated solar power, a calculator, the double hull and outlined a rudimentary theory of plate tectonics. Relatively few of his designs were constructed or were even feasible during his lifetime, but some of his smaller inventions, such as an automated bobbin winder and a machine for testing the tensile strength of wire, entered the world of manufacturing unheralded.[d] As a scientist, he greatly advanced the state of knowledge in the fields of anatomy, civil engineering, optics, and hydrodynamics.
The renaissance man of the renaissance. He could have lived to be 500 and still not lived up to his potential.
