Here, you can view the files that are currently available to be deleted without causing problems on your system. These types of files include: Temporary Internet Files, Recycle Bin and can even compress your older files. You can click on each item, and view a brief description of what their purpose and reason is for being on your system. If it says, “You can safely delete these files” definitely check mark these …

ISRO – Rising Star of Space Technology

India is making rapid progress in the arena of science and technology. Gone are those days when this country was satirically referred to as the land of “Snake Charmers.” Nowadays, indigenous Indian rockets as high as multi storied buildings are seen roaring in skies piggybacking bulky satellites. This clearly indicates that the Indian space program is now self-reliant and fully prepared to explore the dark secrets of the universe.

For several decades only two players competed each other in the game of spaceflight capabilities. Former Soviet Union and United States of America fought a long and costly battle to emerge triumphant in sphere of science and technology. Initially, India was lagging behind several nations in space research but ISRO has managed to cross all hurdles. The reluctance of United States and Western European nations to provide advanced technologies convinced India shape its military and space programs. Although India is yet to launch its astronaut into space on a domestic launch vehicle, ISRO has already achieved several milestones.

The Indian space program is very advanced and economical. Scientific community around the world lauds competence and caliber of Indian space research agency. First Indian interplanetary mission “The Mars Orbiter Mission” is known for its shoestring budget. Surprisingly, the World was stunned to note that India achieved this remarkable feat in its maiden attempt. Interestingly, Chinese and Japanese attempt to explore Mars could not succeed. The Indian space program is ambitious and very promising. India plans to launch its astronaut on homegrown rocket in the impending future, associated technologies are in testing phase. ISRO has already demonstrated its might by launching more than hundred satellites aboard a single rocket. As India is on the verge of becoming economic superpower, it cannot afford to lag behind in the territory of space technology. Arch rival …

US Computer Named World’s Fastest

According to reports released on November 15, 2012, a Cray supercomputer at the US Government’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory has been an IBM supercomputer at another American research center. Titan, a Cray XK7 system installed at Oak Ridge achieved 17.59 Peta flops (quadrillions of calculations per second). The system is funded by the United States Department of Energy, and is used for research in energy, climate change, efficient engines, materials and other advanced scientific research.

Titan knocked the IBM Sequoia at the Lawrence Liver more National Laboratory, California, to second place. Sequoia, which was declared the world’s fastest system in June 2012, could manage only 16.32 Peta flops in the contest. In the top five, the others were Fujitsu’s K computer in Kobe, Japan; an IBM Blue Gene/Q system named Mira in Chicago, USA; and another IBM Blue Gene/Q system named Queen in Germany. The survey found that 251 of the fastest 500 systems in the world were in USA, 105 in Europe and 123 in Asia, including 72 in China.

Scientists Discover How To Change Color Of Gold

Scientists have for the first time found a way to change the color of gold, the world’s most iconic precious metal. Researchers from the University of Southampton, USA, have discovered that by embossing tiny raised or indented patterns onto the metal’s surface, they can change the way it absorbs and reflects light. The result is that the human eye does not see it as “golden” in color at all.

The breakthrough finding is equally applicable to other metals such as aluminum and silver. It opens up the prospect of coloring metals without having to coat or chemically treat them, delivering valuable economic, environmental and other benefits.

The technique could be harnessed in a wide range of …
