Ain't this amazing!

NASA today released an amazing picture of the decent of Phoenix lander in the Martian atmosphere by the HiRISE camera on board the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.

Dr. Phil Plait has put in words what any astronomy enthusiast feels today which actually every human should feel....

I had to post this....

Been a while since i posted anything here (...i know the same old story), but this made me to finally post something.

Came across this on BBC....
A television crew has captured some remarkable footage of a flying fish off the coast of Japan.

The creature spends 45 seconds in flight: some believe it could be one of the longest recorded flights by this acrobatic species.

The fish was able to stay aloft by occasionally beating the surface of the water with its tail fin.
Freaking awesome.....Life surely does find its own way!

Postcard from Space (10): Opportunity looks up


Opportunity turned its rover eyes skyward to observe clouds drifting overhead that look like cirrus clouds on Earth -- featherlike formations composed mostly of ice crystals.

By looking at the clouds, Opportunity learns about seasonal and daily weather patterns on Mars. Scientists want to understand how water vapor is transported around the planet. For example, on the extremely cold red planet, surface ice warmed by sunlight can briefly turn to vapor that rises into the atmosphere and then quickly cools to form ice crystals again, either in clouds or back on the ground. Scientists also estimate wind speed and direction based on the movement of the clouds. It definitely gives you the sense of what it might feel like to sit back and watch clouds on Mars.

12 Days into the new year...

...and nothing much has changed around. I'm finding it hard these days to put my thoughts into words. Thoughts haven't ceased me but my thirst for writing has ceased a bit these days. I promised myself last year, that i would blog more often and try to put my thoughts and views into words. A year has passed since then and 45 posts later I'm starting off again with the same promise. A promise to put into words my thoughts and views of things and events around me.

The past year has been quite a year for me with me starting off the year as a fresh graduate with lots of hopes and aspirations. It ended with me being more wiser having passed through the first ten months of my first job. I found myself battling it hard to adjust to the demands of the job and at the same time keeping pace with learning new things as i grow into my role at work. Still a lot has to be achieved before i find myself more comfortable with the current role I'm in. 2008 would answer (i hope!) a lot of questions in this regard. Keeping fingers crossed on this!

Hopefully I'll keep my promise this time around and will keep posting more of my thoughts and views. Peace out.
