Why are women from Venus. Reply

Amazing #Astronomy fact; Years are faster than day, for Venus, why are women from Venus.

There is only one planet in our solar system which rotates opposite to how all other planets rotate. You guess it right, Venus. Explains why women are from Venus.

You don’t get that? Its a very strange planet. The planet where the length of the year is shorter than one single day. Thats right, it takes earth to complete 225 days for Venus to complete 1 year. But it takes earth to complete 243 days for Venus to complete 1 day. Years are faster than day, for Venus. And nobody (other planets) is that slower than Venus. Give your women their time, they need to be slow.

There are more volcanoes on Venus than on any other planet in the solar system. Astronomers know of more than 1,600 volcanoes on its surface More…

LIGO in India? You must be kidding … Reply

I was pleasantly surprised that this experiment is slated to come up in India, yes, with a whopping 250 million dollars investment into science in India is perhaps the only 2nd instance of massive science euphoria.

And they are both directly or immediately so, in my field of research, although the first one INO isn’t seeming to be coming of age, while collaborations and Physics and engineering as such have been extensively laid out in the ground, the lab the much coveted international particle physics lab that is, hasn’t come.

(Surprise me, if work has already begun in Madurai, we have been struck by paranoia of environment so much that the elephants have the right of way more than the most innocuous science commies out there, pardon me, that’s a pun, no disrespect to elephants, no offense to commies.) More…

The angular parameters of celestial mechanics ! Reply

Define an Hour Circle.

Its a bit tricky to define some astronomical parameters and not run into innocent looking misrepresentations of facts. One needs to cool his amber more times than there are parameters, then one gets a feel where and how to begin and give a good description.

Hour Circle is a GREAT Circle, on a celestial sphere ** that, at the same time, passes through one of the celestial poles. Hence it passes through both of the celestial poles*.

A great circle is a circle that passes on a sphere, so that its radius (or diameter) equals to the radius (or diameter ) of that sphere.

If the great circle goes through one of the poles (– so both poles as an imminent condition of this definition) its also called a meridian and this circles’s angular reference wrt one of all possible meridians is called a longitude angle, or simply longitude. More…

Mars winter and summer would have a wider variation due to Sun’s relative distance being a 17%; variation in radiation is 34% (2 x 17%)

For earth since distance of earth and sun varies from maximum to minimum within 3.4% the variation in sun’s radiation energy is 2×3.4 = 6.8%

Also Venus is far more closer to Earth in most of its actual parameters. (eg inclinations don’t matter, mass and gravity and pressure etc do) But Venus is 31 times hotter than earth on an average and a person would feel 100 times more pressure from the atmosphere above his head. He would burn and crack like a f** fish. More…

The Chandra Angle !! 1

But the neutron stars are still quite large. This is because the electrons are about 1000 times as longer in how much space they require to sit in that system, than the neutrons. the neutrons are heavy hard attitude guys, they will go no where. But the electrons while occupy such a large couch are far far less heavier than are neutron. So they are basically whats called “soft”. They are long legged and eat less energy and when vanish the neutron stars have collapsed into an adjacent mass state but quite so very smaller in volume, a 1000 times, smaller.

So two things happened that are called supernovae (that is super star phenomena).

1. (Type Ia supernovae) White dwarf > induced by atomic disintegration due to gravity pressure > Core of the star

2. (Core collapse supernovae) Core of the star > induced further by emission of electrons > neutron star

A beautiful formula for what angle an object in space extends at you? Its the (diameter-of-object / distance -of-object) ratio is the tangent of that angle. Then, the farther the object is the smaller the angle becomes maintaining the tangent value of the angle in that ratio, because the object will have a fixed size/diameter.

δ = inverse-tan ( diameter / distance )

This formula then I will remember all my life. Give me Einstein Tensor and bet that I will remember you will lose that bet. I hear applauds, Thank you.

This image then shows the size of earth from the distance of the Rocket that has been sent by India recently. This formula and info is from ISRO fb page ( — although explanation is mine) and yes this is valid only for circular objects (earth on a plane is a near-circle, as you can see in the image above) and the circle on this square-image-space extends an angle with a point that is as far from the square as is the Rocket.
