The Antarctic ice sheet is one of the two polar ice caps of the Earth. It covers about 98% of the Antarctic continent. Antarctica is considered as a desert as this place is the coldest, driest, and windiest on the earth. It has the highest average elevation of all the continents. Now, NASA ice scientists have found a shrimp-like creature and a possible jellyfish ‘frolicking’ beneath 600 feet of solid Antarctic ice, where only microbes were expected to live.
Based on Earth’s experience, some scientists view intelligent life on other planets as possible and the replication of this event elsewhere is at least plausible. The drake equation calculates the number of advanced civilizations in our galaxy.
It seems unthinkable, but for the first time in human history, ice is on course to disappear entirely from the North Pole this year.
This is really a good news. A galaxy is a massive, gravitationally bound system consisting of stars, an interstellar medium of gas and dust, and dark matter. Our Sun and Earth are part of the Milky Way galaxy. Basically the Sun is one of the stars in the Milky Way galaxy; the Solar System includes […]
The Arctic Ocean, located in the northern hemisphere and mostly in the Arctic north polar region. Arctic summer melting in 2007 set new records. The polar ice pack is thinning, and there is a seasonal hole in ozone layer in many years. Reduction of the area of Arctic sea ice will have an effect on […]

Recently I was reading very nice piece of information. According to Swami Vivekananda ” The whole secret of existence is to have no fear. Never fear what will become of you. Depend on no one. The movement you reject all help you are free”. All our problems and fears will come and go, just as […]
