Planets and their Satellites (Moons)
Science and Tech / July 26, 2018

There are total 8 planets in our solar system & all the planets revolve around the sun in the anticlockwise direction i.e. West to East except Venus & Uranus, they both revolve in the clockwise direction i.e. East to West. Inner planet or Terrestrial Planets: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars. Outer planet or Jovian planet : Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune. List of planets according to their Size: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Earth, Venus, Mars, Mercury. Dwarf Planets: Pluto, Ceres, Eris, Makemake, Haumea. The Solar System’s planets and officially recognized dwarf planets are known to be orbited by 194 natural satellites, or moons. 19 moons in the Solar System are large enough to be gravitationally rounded, and thus would be considered planets or dwarf planets if they were in direct orbit around the Sun. Moons are classed in two separate categories according to their orbits: regular moons, which have prograde orbits (they orbit in the direction of their planets’ rotation) and lie close to the plane of their equators, and irregular moons, whose orbits can be pro- or retrograde (against the direction of their planets’ rotation) and often lie at extreme angles to their planets’ equators. Irregular moons are probably minor planets…

Solar Planets, their distance from Sun and order
Science and Tech / July 23, 2018

The planets in our solar system each occupy their own orbits around the Sun. They orbit the star in ellipses, which means their distance to the sun varies depending on where they are in their orbits. When they get closest to the Sun, it’s called perihelion, and when it’s farthest away, it’s called aphelion. So to talk about how far the planets are from the sun is a difficult question, not only because their distances constantly change, but also because the spans are so immense — making it hard for a human to grasp. For this reason, astronomers often use a term called astronomical unit, representing the distance from the Earth to the Sun. Below we have listed each planets with their Approx Average Distance from Sun along with Minimum and Maximum Distances.

Scientific Names – Fish, Reptiles And Amphibians
Scientific Names / April 29, 2018

Scientists have given each and every recognized species on earth its own scientific names to uniquely identify them to avoid confusion. At the simplest level of scientific classification, each scientific name consists of two parts – a generic (or genus) name and a specific name or epithet. Together, these two names are referred to as a binomial. The generic name refer to collective name for a group of organism. Group of organisms have similar characters and are represented by the generic name. They all evolve from one common ancestor. The specific name distinguish between different organism with a genus. The first part of the scientific name are always written with the generic name first. We have listed Fish, Reptiles and Amphibians with both their common names and scientific names. If you want to search a specific name, you may use the search box below. You may also use alphabetic index as per necessity. Click here to check scientific names of other groups.

Why is it called Mouse
Science and Tech / June 20, 2016

They are slowly disappearing. However they haven’t disappeared completely yet. The connection Wire with the Computer mouse is still there. Computer mouse will soon become wireless in future. If that happens(and it will), then the name mouse should be changed. Because the reason behind such a name is the tail of a mouse. The wire which connects computer with computer mouse resembles with real mouse(living). The engineers who had designed and developed(invented) mouse, had noticed the similarity. They thought it looked like tail of a mouse. So they named the newly invented device mouse. From then this device is called mouse by the world. Now it is the age of wireless devices. Wireless mouse is also available at the market now a days. We call them mouse with or without the tails.
