It’s ROBERT BUNSEN 200th birthday today.
Robert Bunsen is a German chemist who developed Bunsen Burner. As the name of the laboratory apparatus implies, a burner named after Robert Bunsen.
Up until now, this apparatus, Bunsen Burner, has been widely used in many laboratories, though innovations are also being developed and available now.
There’s nothing to worry about the moon being such SUPERMOON tonight.
On Saturday night, the moon will arrive at perigee at 19:09 UT (3:09 p.m. Eastern Time). Its distance from the Earth at that moment will be 221,565 miles. But just over three years ago, on Dec. 12, 2008, which was also the night of a full moon, the moon reached perigee at 21:39 UT (4:39 p.m. Eastern Time) at a distance of 221,559 miles, about 6 miles closer than Saturday night’s perigee distance.

Happy Birthday Sir Thomas!
“These results certainly surprised me,” said the study’s lead author, Matthew Killingsworth, a doctoral student in psychology at Harvard University. He had expected that people’s wandering thoughts would make them more happy – not less so.
But, on the other hand, it’s also possible the link between mind wandering and unhappiness is a self-correcting mechanism. If we could slip into a perfectly serene world of our own mental creation, why would we ever want to resurface? Mind wandering may, indeed, offer certain evolutionary advantages, but too much of it could be a bad thing. After all, our cave-dwelling ancestors would have quickly fallen prey to sabre-toothed tigers if they let their guard down for very long. More>>
Hope you have something good grasp from this. So, stop wandering. Live your life happy.
The space shuttle Endeavour is ready on the launch pad 39A.
Shuttle Endeavour Launch Time Scrubbed, Space Shuttle Endeavour is one of three currently operational orbiters in the Space Shuttle fleet of NASA, the space agency of the United States. Before being decommissioned NASA expects to use Endeavour for the STS-130 and STS-134 missions. Shuttle Endeavour launch time was scrubbed in the last moments due to unfavorable weather. NASA launch director Mike Leinbach called an official scrub at 4:30 a.m. EST Sunday.
NASA shuttle launch and mission managers would analyze forecast conditions for a Monday or Tuesday pre-dawn launch attempt. If Endeavour launches Monday morning, the launch time would be 4:14 a.m. Eastern Time. NASA was in violation of safety rules for Sunday morning, due to clouds that were too low and too thick over the launch and emergency landing sites at the Kennedy Space Center. Endeavour is set to ferry the last of the heavy living-quarter and interior space elements to the International Space Station.
Bohooo.. Hate it. I was even excited. Last November, NASA was successful in launching the Atlantis Spacecraft.
Atlantis carried six crew on an eleven day mission, designated STS 129, which they carry equipment parts for the International Space Station. Those parts include two spare gyroscopes, two nitrogen tank assemblies, two pump modules, an ammonia tank assembly and a spare latching end effector for the station’s robotic arm to the International Space Station. Atlantis will be back two days after they’ve launched.
