Regions of Mars could be made habitable with a material silica aerogel that mimics Earth's atmospheric greenhouse effect, according to a study by NASA and Harvard researchers. People have long dreamed of re shaping the Martian climate to make it livable for humans. Carl Sagan was the first outside of the realm of science fiction to propose terraforming. In a 1971 paper, Sagan suggested that vapourising the northern polar ice caps would yield atmosphere over the planet, higher global temperatures through the greenhouse effect, and a greatly increased likelihood of liquid water.Now, researchers from the Harvard University and NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab in the US, have shown that a two to three centimeter thick shield of silica aerogel could transmit enough visible light for photosynthesis, and block hazardous ultraviolet radiation. Doing so will also raise temperatures underneath permanently above the melting point of water, all without the need for any internal heat source, according to the study published in the journal Nature Astronomy.
Listening to some relaxing tunes is as effective in reducing the anxiety felt my most patients immediately before surgery as pumping them with anti anxiety drugs.This is according to new research from the University Of Pennsylvania, which found that patients listening to soothing music on noise cancelling headphones had similar anxiety levels to those who had been administered the sedative midazolam. Which suggests that music could be used as a drugless alternative for treating pre surgery anxiety.

The batch of data sent by Gaia in 2018 offered a large amount of new information which changed many fields of astronomy. It allowed researchers to create a complex catalog which highlights several traits, among which we can count position, distance, brightness and other, for more than one billion stars which can be found within the Milky Way Galaxy.The feat is quite impressive, but it is merely the beginning. The catalog was elaborated by using data which was collected in the first 20 months of activity, but the satellite has been scanning the sky for five years, and it will remain active until 2022. New data will be beamed to Earth in recent years, allowing scientists to improve the current measurements and learn more data which contributes to the task of charting the galaxy.

Bengaluru: The political slugfest in Karnataka continued on Thursday as the trust vote against the HD Kumaraswamy led coalition government could not be taken up by the state assembly which was adjourned till Friday following a blame game between the ruling Congress JDS and BJP legislators. As a mark of protest, the BJP MLAs decided to sit on an overnight dharna outside the Vidhana Soudha to protest the adjournment of the house despite Governor Vajubhai Vala s letter to Speaker KR Ramesh Kumar urging him to hold the trust vote on Thursday itself. The House was adjourned for the day and will convene again at 11 AM on Friday for the normal business. However, shortly after the Karnataka Assembly was adjourned on Thursday without a trial of strength, Governor Vajubhai Vala wrote a letter to Chief Minister Kumaraswamy asking him to prove majority on the floor of the House by Friday afternoon. Vala told Kumaraswamy to prove his government s majority by 1.30 PM.
