We had put our project " Promoting Space Science Education and Astronomy in Nepal" for which our team had worked for several week. Though we plan for CCD imaging and live streaming of the Sun in the screen, we could not do that because of heavy crowd since morning. Our team had been composed of M.Sc. physics ( second year) and B.Sc. Physics (third year) to show the possibilities of intra class collaboration for such project in coming days and for greater interaction among the Physics students in the college.

Today we had three parallel session, one explanation of the posters and formation or galaxies and role of citizen to discover his/her position in this vast universe! G.D. Pudasaini ( B.Sc.) and Shekhar Phuyal( M.S…

The book examines the history of scientific knowledge about the universe. It starts with the Ionian Greeks, who claimed that nature works by laws, and not by the will of the gods. It later presents the work of Nicolaus Copernicus, who advocated the concept that the Earth is not located in the center of the universe. The authors then describe the theory of quantum mechanics using, as an example, the probable movement of an electron around a room. The presentation has been described as easy to understand by some reviewers, but also as sometimes "impenetrable," by others. The central claim of the book is that the theory of quantum mechanics and the theory of relativity together …

SECOND NATIONAL SCIENCE EXHIBITION 2011

Students of faculty of science of Tribhuvan University(TU), Kirtipur is organizing Second National Science Exhibition,February 7-11, 2011 at Central Department of Physics, TU, Kirtipur.There will be different projects on science and technology prepared by the students. The visitors will certainly have a greater view towards the development of S&T in Nepal once they visit the Exhibition. Different events are organized everyday from 9 am to 6 pm during the exhibition.

This exhibition is supported by Nepal Physical Society (NPS), NAST, Kathmandu University, Ministry of S&T and Media partners.

So, don't miss this great opportunity to know what our future scientists are doing in the country!
