         WE LOVE SCIENCE HERE BECAUSE IT IS A MANY SPLENDOURED THING

     THIS  IS A WAR ZONE WHERE SCIENCE FIGHTS WITH NONSENSE AND WINS                                               

“The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.”             

                    "Being a scientist is a state of mind, not a profession!"

                  "Science, when it's done right, can yield amazing things".

"Knowledge is a Superpower but the irony is you cannot get enough of it with ever increasing data base unless you try to keep up with it constantly and in the right way!" The best education comes from learning from people who know what they are exactly talking about.

Science is this glorious adventure into the unknown, the opportunity to discover things that nobody knew before. And that’s just an experience that’s not to be missed. But it’s also a motivated effort to try to help humankind. And maybe that’s just by increasing human knowledge—because that’s a way to make us a nobler species.

If you are scientifically literate the world looks very different to you.

We do science and science communication not because they are easy but because they are difficult!

“Science is not a subject you studied in school. It’s life. We 're brought into existence by it!"

Science students all the big ideas haven't all been discovered. There are several more. Find some!

Basic science gives information about how systems in nature work. First go for it in order to choose research as career.

Go into science for the enjoyment and fascination of the work. Not for money, awards and  prizes

My reply to this article on Scientific American: http://blogs.scientificamerican.com/cross-check/2012/04/23/science-...

Science Will Never Explain Why There’s Something Rather Than Nothing

What a gloomy picture?! Negative vibes? Yes. Science is still in its infancy. We cannot expect much from a child. It still has to grow a lot, learn a lot, think a lot, experiment a lot and come up with explanations.Is it even right to expect a child to solve all your problems and answer all your questions?
Is it right to explain things in the way religion or baseless beliefs do about the existence of our universe? If God, if one really exists, came into existence on his/her own from nothing, like the believers say, the universe could also have originated out of nothing without anybody or anything creating it! How is that for an explanation?!
Some Eastern religions say God is present in each and every atom of this universe and universe itself is the image of God and you cannot separate God from the universe! This fundamental question of origins of universe or God is too complex for an infant science to answer. Science has imbibed positiveness in me and I hope the difficult questions will be answered by science one day not in the immediate future though or in our life times.Have patience. Let science and human understanding grow to an adult stage. And be positive.

I am disappointed by this assertion : “I’m nonetheless going out on a limb and guessing that science will never, ever answer what I call “The Question”: Why is there something rather than nothing?” End of the science? Really? So it’s okay to chuck 2,000 years of scientific method out the window – a method that does not claim it will always find the truth, but a method that at least doggedly pursues the possibility that one *can* find answers rather than shrugging and assuming that not everything can be understood.

How rain drops are formed:

It illustrates the concepts of accretion — when the tiny droplets of water that form clouds bump into each other and combine to form larger drops — and cohesion, the attraction that water molecules have for each other. The “saturation point” that is mentioned in the video is the point at which a cloud can no longer absorb any more water and may release it as rain.

Success of tsunami forecast depends on identifying the true  cause of an earth quake. If the earth's crust moved horizontally during plate movement during an earthquake rather than vertically, it won't trigger tsunami. Vertical tectonic plate movement displaces water upwards, it can trigger massive columns of waves — as was the case in 2004 - and cause tsunamis.

As a result, the speed at which scientists can identify the direction in which the earth's crust has moved in the event of an earthquake is crucial in issuing an accurate tsunami forecast quickly.
