Know this if u don’t !

Here I am representing some very interesting facts of space .

Hope you guys/gls will enjoy this .

1. If you put Saturn in water it would float.

The density of Saturn is so low that if you were to put it in a giant glass of water it would float. The actual density of Saturn is 0.687 g/cm3 while the density of water is 0.998 g/cm3. At the equator Saturn has a radius of 60,268 ± 4 km – which means you would need an extremely large glass of water to test this out.

2. We are moving through space at the rate of 530km a second.

Our Galaxy – the Milky Way is spinning at a rate of 225 kilometers per second. In addition, the galaxy is travelling through space at the rate of 305 kilometers per second. This means that we are traveling at a total speed of 530 kilometers (330 miles) per second. That means that in one minute you are about 19 thousand kilometers away from where you were. Scientists do not all agree on the speed with which the Milky Way is travelling – estimates range from 130 – 1,000 km/s. It should be said that Einstein’s theory of relativity, the velocity of any object through space is not meaningful.

3. The moon is drifting away from Earth.

Every year the moon moves about 3.8cm further away from the Earth. This is caused by tidal effects. Consequently, the earth is slowing in rotation by about 0.002 seconds per day per century. Scientists do not know how the moon was created, but the generally accepted theory suggests that a large Mars sized object hit the earth causing the Moon to splinter off.

4. The light hitting the earth right now is 30 thousand years old.

The energy in the sunlight we see today started out in the core of the Sun 30,000 years ago – it spent most of this time passing through the dense atoms that make the sun and just 8 minutes to reach us once it had left the Sun! The temperature at the core of the sun is 13,600,000 kelvins. All of the energy produced by fusion in the core must travel through many successive layers to the solar photosphere before it escapes into space as sunlight or kinetic energy of particles.

5. The Sun loses up to a billion kilograms a second due to solar winds.

Solar winds are charged particles that are ejected from the upper surface of the sun due to the high temperature of the corona and the high kinetic energy particles gain through a process that is not well understood at this time. Also, did you know that 1 pinhead of the sun’s energy is enough to kill a person at a distance of 160 kilometers?

6. Earth has at least 4 moons.

Okay – that is not actually true – but it is very close. In 1986, Duncan Waldron discovered a asteroid (5km across) that is in an elliptic orbit around the sun with a period of revolution virtually identical to that of Earth. For this reason the planetoid and earth appear to be following each other. The periodic planetoid is named Cruithne (pronounced krin-yə) after an ancient group of Scottish people (also known as the Picts). Because of its unusual relationship with Earth, it is sometimes referred to as Earth’s second moon. Cruithne, is fainter than Pluto and would require at least a 12.5 inch reflecting telescope to attempt to be seen. Since its discovery, at least three other similar asteroids have been discovered. These types of objects are also found in similar relationships to other planets in our Solar System.

7. If two pieces of metal touch in space, they become permanently stuck together.

This may sound unbelievable, but it is true. Two pieces of metal without any coating on them will form in to one piece in the vacuum of space. This doesn’t happen on earth because the atmosphere puts a layer of oxidized material between the surfaces. This might seem like it would be a big problem on the space station but as most tools used there have come from earth, they are already coated with material. In fact, the only evidence of this seen so far has been in experiments designed to provoke the reaction. This process is called cold welding.

Conversion operator

Hello squids ,

Many of you ,who are studing/studied C++ , may be aware of conversion operator.

In short it may be described as :

A conversion operator can be thought of as a user-defined typecasting operator; it converts its object to a different type in contexts that require that specific type.

And that specific type may be built in as well as user defined .

I like this feature because of the flexibility that it provides to this programming language.

Here I am giving an example which will help you for better understanding of this operator.

class Mystring
{
char *s;
int size;
public:
Mystring(const char *);
Mystring();
operator const char * () { return s; }

};
int main()
{
Mystring str(“hello world”);
int n = strcmp(str, “Hello”);
printf(“%d”,n);
return 0;
}

In this example constructor is taking argument const char * and in main “hello world” is passed as an argument in the object.But in next line we are trying to compare a string with an object, which will cause an error , if we don’t use the conversion operator.

So , here conversion operator comes in action and it converts the object into a constant string.

The prototype of conversion function is –

operator type()   {return value;}

here value is the value of class after conversion .type is the data type in which object is to be converted .

Conversion operators differ from ordinary overloaded operators in two ways. First, a conversion operator has no return value (not even void). The return value is inferred from the operator’s name. Secondly, a conversion operator takes no arguments. Conversion operators can convert their objects to any given type, fundamental and user-defined.

Hope this’ll help you guys .

Open relationship -meaning

hello friends ,

I am a regular user of orkut , and I am habitual of seening persons in open relationship .

But the amazing thing is that many of them are still unaware of what open relationship means.

So I am just clarifying the meaning of this term .

A relationship in which two people agree that they want to be together, but can’t exactly promise that they won’t see other people too. Basically, to have it all: a significant other and the freedom to hook up with other people.

so guys/gls think before setting your relationship “open”.

MY JNU MY BATCH.

hey friends,

In this section my post will be related to “MY JNU”.

Don’t laugh please .

I was confused a Little bit to call this  “MY JNU” , but finally I thought this is the word which can describe my feelings .

So in video , you’ll find some rare scenes , some persons who are never seen together.

This should be treated as archive video .

Hope all of you will enjoy this video .

1. The famous cricketer who played Olympic Hockey for India – Nawab Pattaudi.

2. A legendary Indian player whose statue is located at Berlin Square – Dhyan Chand

3. First Indian cricketer to be kissed in public by a woman fan – Abbas Ali Baig

4. India had won 8 Gold, 1 Silver and 2 Bronze medals in Olympic Hockey.

5. The Golden Era of Indian Hockey: India had won gold medals in Olympic hockey for consecutively six times (1928 – 1956).

6. Nevil D’Souza (India) is the only player to score a hattrick in the Olympic Football history.

7. First Overseas player of the Yorkshire County – Sachin Tendulkar.

My all time favourite !!!

Hello  friends ,

Since I am a fun loving guy , i usually hang out with my friends , and watching movies also a part of this .

I have seen many movies  in my life , but there is a very short list of movies which still revolve in my mind .

The first one of this chart is RDB(Rang De Basanti) , I think all time favourite of youths , You can check this by visiting the profiles of persons on orkut , facebook  etc…

Here is the synopsis :

RDB

RANG DE BASANTI is a story about the youth of India today. A young, London based film- maker chances upon the diaries of her grandfather, who served in the British police force in India during the freedom struggle. Excited about these memoirs, she makes plans to shoot a film on the Indian revolutionaries mentioned in the diaries. She comes down to Delhi, and casts a group of five friends to play the pivotal roles of these revolutionaries. However, products of modern India, the five youngsters initially refuse to be part of the project, as they don’t identify with these characters from the past. Not surprising, considering that they’re part of a generation of Indians that believes in consumerism. To them issues like patriotism and giving one’s life for one’s beliefs is the stuff stuffy text- books are made of. They would rather party than be patriots. In the film both the 1930’s British India and the India Today run parallel and intersect with each other at crucial points. As the film reaches its resolution the line between past and present blur’s, as they become one in spirit.

My eyes were wet after the completion of this movie and believe me such type of things happen to  me very  rarely.

The inner soul of movie was quite impressive , story line touches everyone’s heart. And “THE BOND” AAMIR (DJ) was on his full glow in this movie. Really this man AAMIR lives the charatcter.

But still we have to count the importance of other characters as well , Siddhartha(Karan Singhania) debuted with this movie in Bollywood, and nothing can be better than this . Kunal (Aslam) has shown he can act in any stream (not only in Theatres), Sharman joshi (Sukhi), as usual , has provided many scenes to laugh. Soha and Alice both have acted naturally. And i think that i am not capable to express my verdict about Anupam Kher, Kiron Kher , Waheeda Rahman, Om Puri , Madhvan , Cyrus sahukar ,Atul Kulkarni, they have justified their role. In one word , ” awsome !”

Well Personally my favourite scene in the movie , when sukhi , aslam,laxman all were dead in the last of the movie and very badly injured Aamir comes near to Siddhartha , And when he says -“Kake lagta hai pyaar ho gaya hai mainu…. Bhain di taki dil me bas gayi hai yaar…. bas baccho ki fikar ho rahi hai yaar  bhain de take gore honge yaa kale …” .

Simply Punch line of movie is : “Zindgi jeene ke do hi tareeke hote hai , ek ,jo ho raha hai hone do, bardast karte jao , ya fir jimmedari uthao use badalne ki ” !

I Love AAmir , I love RDB !

About me .

Hello  friends ,

I am Leo Icon .

LEOICON

The idea of  blogging is no more new , but i found it very exciting .

The most striking feature of this idea is that one can share it’s views and can know what others think about the topics discussed in the posts .

I”m shy and not very good at socializing.
I never had a girlfreind.
and even tho I”m only 23. I”m starting to wonder if I ever will.
I”m not a *****, or a backstabber.
I’m nice, easy to get along with
I don’t think i’m that pretty, definatly not skinny.
but I’m me.

The novice step !

Dedicated to the world of wordpressians..!

Blogs can’t be the idea of socializing through the internet, in my persona! Instead of blogging rigorously for just getting nice rank on google or something like this, this step i am taking to make a view of my personal experiences, may be a loose scrap for you. three things you must always have in your mind are #1: World is not full of pathetics, #2: I am in the world and #3: you are free to pick one of the previous two.
