Out Of The Blue

  It’s a Trap! The cosmos, other galaxies, Pluto, Mars, etc; all of these have been Nasa’s concerns. However, the most important of which is finding any source of life in this wide universe. They’re not looking for E.T or Chewbacca (if you’re following the buzz, you’d know that they already found him). The kind of life Nasa is willing to discover could be some bacteria, fungus or plants that are able to grow despite the cosmos’ crucial conditions. On the 2nd of May, 2017, a group of scientists were able to discover a cold dwarf star with sev en planets revolving around it. (Honorable mention: Bill Nye wanted to call them by the seven dwarfs’ names) the system was then referred to as Trappist-1.  It’s located 4o light years away, with the cons ...

Between Present and The Past: Farewell Moore’s Law

“Ladies and gentlemen, good evening to you! A group of scientists in the laboratory of Telephone Company was researching in a field of metals called semiconductors and they wanted to find out what greater scientific value these metals might have. Transistors are entirely different in construction and work. It has a completely new principle!” This was the introduction of a new episode of a scientific program upon the invention of the transistor. In 1947, scientists discovered the transistor effect then the invention of it came to life. While in 1958 the first integrated circuit was made.   No surprise that those three scientists who invented the transistors were granted the Nobel Prize. As our life before 1947 is not the same at all after it. Nowadays, our life is full of electronic de ...

BIM; The Age Of Digital Information

Day by day world changes and new modes of thought pass into our lives, trying to create easier one. Civil engineering, as one of the most important aspects of life, and one of the oldest engineering domains in history which deals with construction, design, and infrastructure is trying to keep up with the development of modern technology to meet the needs of the changing-society. One of these serious attempts is ‘BIM;’ a technique that deals with the constructions’ projects from design through construction into operations, by creating 3 dimensional virtual- model that contains all of the key project information.   The ‘BIM’ technique is widely-known to be directly related to ‘Revit’, but the truth is: ‘Revit’ is one of software desi ...

The universe, it is the enchanted space with mesmerizing spirits. No one goes through Hubble telescope and doesn’t get hypnotized by the beauty of those sceneries: planets pilgrimage around large stars in consistency, the Pillars of Creation nebula which gives eternity to dead stars, moons following planets as young ducklings and galaxies swimming in a vast ocean of bright stars. The universe is overwhelming; despite how vast it is, it still continues to expand. However, all those beautiful celestial bodies make up only 25% of space. As a result, scientists began to focus on discovering that mysterious thing that preoccupies space, Dark Matter. Dark Matter is the thing that confuses scientist nowadays and provokes their curiosity. It’s the dark spaces you see in Hubble telescop ...
