Youtuber Charters A Chopper To Get Answer Of Physics Exam Question

Derek Muller, who owns the ''Veritasium'' YouTube channel, chartered a legitimate helicopter to answer how a uniform cable beneath a helicopter hangs. The question was given in the physics paper of a US Physics Olympiad exam in 2014. Muller chose to rent a helicopter instead of using basic stationery items such as books and pencils. After his research, he concluded that option D is the correct answer.

Former DGP Initiates Online Science Programmes For School Students

Leading the physics experiments using fun elements, a 67-year old retired Director General of Police Anoop Jaiswal commenced free online science programmes for students. Considering the online programmes, DGP commented, "I would address 250 to 300 students, a mixed group spread across standards VI-XII." However, Jaiswal uses scientific toys, old cutlery, broken tubes, and empty bottles in his experiments.

Maths, Physics In Class 12 Not Necessary For Engineering Course: AICTE

The All India Council for Technical Education has notified that aspiring engineering students would not necessarily require Mathematics and Physics in class 12 to apply for B.E. and B.Tech programmes. As per the AICTE's 2021-22 approval process handbook, students will instead need 45% scores in three out of a 14-subject list, including Computer Science and Business Studies among others. For this, it further provisioned that universities will… read-more

Scientists Find Explanation For Perplexing Blue Ring Nebula

Scientists from W.M. Observatory in Hawaii on November 18 explained the formation of the Blue Ring Nebula surrounding the star TYC 2597-735-1. According to report, a collision with a sun-like star led to the ejection of a hot cloud with debris, which caused the hydrogen molecules in it to heat up, resulting in ultraviolet emissions. Physicist Keri Hoadley said the process was caught before it was too late to gather any information.

Nobel Prize in Physics, 2020: Three Researchers Awarded for Two Discoveries

The coveted Nobel Prize in Physics for the year 2020 has been awarded to three scientists for two different discoveries. The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences awarded Roger Penrose for discovering “that black hole formation is a robust prediction of the general theory of relativity” and Reinhard Genzel and Andrea Ghez “for the discovery of a supermassive compact object at the centre of our galaxy”. Penrose, who works as a professor at the… read-more
