In a first for astronomers studying worlds beyond our solar system, data from the Hubble Space Telescope have revealed water vapor in the atmosphere of an Earth-size planet. Although this exoplanet orbits a star that is smaller than our sun, it falls within what’s known as the star’s habitable zone, the range of orbital distances where it would be warm enough for liquid water to exist on a planet’s surface.

Eighteen Years Ago!

Eighteen years ago, I was working, listening to music on the radio when they made an announcement that a plane has hit the World Trade Center. I turned the TV and saw the tower number 1 in flames. Some minutes after I saw another plane hit tower number 2. We were being attacked by terrorists.

Journey of the soul Photo by Vivek Sen — National Geographic Your Shot

Journey of the soul Photo by Vivek Sen — National Geographic Your Shot: Manikarnika Ghat is one of the holiest among the sacred riverfronts (ghats) alongside the river Ganges in the city of Varanasi. It is believed that a deceased human's soul finds salvation (moksha), when cremated here.This is the place where we can understand the true meaning of life and how nothingness feels when it all ends. Here the flames from pyre resembled conversion of a body to eternal spark. I will come back to Varanasi for getting more deep insight of the city ,it’s people and culture.
