Satellites: Being made out of Wood


Japanese scientists from Kyoto University have collaborated with Sumitomo Forestry company (400 years old) which is specialized in wood words – will create the wooden satellite by 2023.

The researchers from the university said that the wooden satellite would burn up upon reentry in the atmosphere without leaving any chunk of debris or any harmful thing.

Currently, there are 2800 defunct satellites encircling the earth, and there are 128 million pieces of debris in the orbit, in which 38,000 pieces of debris are more than 10cm in size, and when they collide it creates 1000’s tiny particles which may travel up to 20000 mph. This debris floating in the orbit can cause high damage to the working satellites and are highly harmful to the astronauts.

Earth: Its Moving Slow Than its Usual Speed

Earth: The earth is spinning faster than its usual speed Currently our earth is spinning faster than ever for the first time in the last 5 decades, the scientists discovered and it may lead to negative leap second added to this year. The rotation of the earth is affected by several factors which include a dynamic climate, flowing molten core and atmospheric pressure. It’s going to be 0.05 milliseconds shorter than 86400 seconds which constitutes to 24-hour period of a day said Graham Jones (astrophysicist and science communicator). While the last time the shortest recorded day by millisecond was in the year 1937. So if the earth continues to foster its spin wall clocks would need to skip a second in order to match the mass of the earth’s space. But in our practical daily live the millisec. have no importance but in astronomy computer networks and navigation the negative leaps second is most highly important to carry out the calculations and to avoid any errors.

This Is How Do Ocean Waves Form And Why They Are Continuous?

Normal ocean waves result from the frictional drag of wind on the surface of the water. The waves you observe at a given beach may originate thousands of kilometres away,whereas tsunami waves are caused by displacement of the crust caused by an earthquake. Waves have a crest and a trough, the distance between crests being known as the wavelength. Waves travel in groups called a wave train. Waves are not all moving at the same speed. When one wave catches up to another you can end up with an even higher wave. This is called constructive interference.  Ocean waves can travel hundreds of kilometres before they reach the land. The distance of water over which the wind has blown is called the fetch. A long fetch will result in big waves and big waves carry with them a tremendous amount of energy. Storms create destructive waves thus a lot of erosion takes place during storms,Even on calm days it is possible to get big waves as these ones have been generated in a storm somewhere else some ti
