Ellison Onizuka: First Asian American in Space

Happy #nationalastronautday! Today we're celebrating Ellison Onizuka, the first Asian American to fly in space aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery in 1975. He was part of NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Astronaut Class of 1978, which was the first to include women, Hispanic people, and Asian and African Americans. Though he tragically lost his life in the now-infamous Challenger explosion in 1986, his legacy helped pave the way for other Asian Americans pursuing careers in space exploration.

ULTIMATE THEORY IS THE UNIVERSE So much has been done on the ultimate energy theory of the universe. Dr Einstein spent his last 30 years to combine all fundamental aspects of the nature to discover it with elegant presentation. The unified energy capsule has to be put together knowing basics of the nature including interactions i.e. the nature to be described in a nutshell. Dr Einstein's energy equation E = mc2 stands tall and it is on the platform of conditions prevailing on the earth and which differ from object to object. Here there is a point, lesser is the gravitation, more is the output and greater is the gravitation, lesser is the end energy. So as conditions of gravitation would vary on objects, energy equation would change. So there is a probing parameter i.e.what is the common unified energy equation of the universe in totality to serve as a permanent formula,behind the universal setup and chains which cannot be denied. Basically Gravitation and anti gravitation plus electromagnetism are fundamental pillars. In fact electromagnetism is an element in gravitation and anti gravitation inherent within. Main clue is balancing function of these factors for safe existence and infinite run. There must be strong centres which run on auto basis, a hub of perfect combination of gravitation and anti gravitation as strings of combined power (where others not allowed), stretching its wings everywhere;and without any wait keep the objects in safe varying ranges The combination of these exclusive elements is the ultimate theory. To make it clear, the earth would be the nearest point to observe, in that how that ultimate energy operates around the earth in its self rotation and the orbit path in relation to safety for itself and surrounding phenomenon. Since all is in atomic sub particles, their role in the energy plays a vital role which speaks for itself in splendid performance. Broadly, gravitation and anti gravitation atomic sub particles differ from matter to matter in strength . A step forward to avoid natural crisis situations , due balancing of gravitation and anti gravitation is necessary ( as when anti gravitation overpowers gravitation, eruptions occur), therefore search light is right around the earth where universal theory and its unified energy is operational. Here relevant direction parameters of the universe are to be understood. What surrounds the earth is the right source to step into the final energy formula which would solve the universal riddle and to derive not only the secret knowledge but for application to better the life on the earth.One greatest advantage is less input and maximum output besides to understand ways for pollution control as blackholes in the space do absorb continuous wear and tear of infinite universal objects. Like objects where gravitation and anti gravitation exist, the space , the abode of all that is, also must be having these for balancing functions. The universe expands ( contraction, a temporary phase) as per interaction of space atomic particles at micro level positioning with their rotations and also powering rotations of objects on basic uniform unified energy capsule driven by atomic energy only, classified as velocity, the mass content being in space waves. When gravitation and anti gravitation is balanced on the earth, no eruptions and calamities occur . This principle can be suitably linked to the unified energy of the universe.as a whole. Since E=mc2 equation has been tested successfully, let us stretch it further to the universal scale. Since energy equals to mc2 is arrived at by defying gravitation for which some energy is utilised, it is not net. The universal unified energy capsule may be supported by equal range of space mass and velocity of mass hidden in the space controlling waves of gravitation and anti gravitation operating simultaneously, so both squared in the proposed unified energy. E = (mc)2. Here gravitation and anti gravitation play their part on equal footing safely. Probabilities, linkages depend solely on atomic energy out of which entire scenario stands. DrEinstein has stated that some natural incidents are looked as miracles, but it is not so. With knowledge searches can be sighted. Currently our empirical system is short of understanding everything. It is beyond the present backup . As the time passes, some better method can be evolved but till then there is no option but to go along with what is available. So there is every room to think in other ways. To fill up the calculation gap and looking beyond, the nature can be understood by sound, vibration and tapping technology during its activities. Sound is the universal language and it needs to be deciphered. Bits of sound will enable to go close to the nature. Finally it is the nature which firms up its operations without any ambiguity for the safe run. It can be summarised that automatic moves of the nature in the origin is pure hundred per cent and does not allow any impurity at the universal scale except in very rare imbalances which are brought back on track without causing major problems; but if imbalance occurs due to man made pollutants , the result is crisis situations. The theory of relativity hinges on the reality of how much 21st century high tech technology is able to concur and in agreement with the unified energy capsule of the universe which is foolproof and eternal. By this understanding, the input will be less compared to the more output than the current energy equation. Dr Einstein opened a wide window of science by the energy equation based on the earth conditions. The above idea of the universal all in one energy capsule i.e. E = (mc)2 is only an extension for further study. H V Navangul Age 85

Our family has an annual membership to the NY Hall of Science and this was the 1st time that we used that membership to visit on Monday, President's Day. We were very disappointed at how many exhibits were not in good working order and how many exhibits were completely closed off. The area where you have your Survivor exhibit, it was sad to see the baseball throw, wheelchair race and such completely gone. Also, how can you have an exhibit for a zip line with a 49 inch height requirement (I believe that's what it was) when you're a museum geared towards children - some of which, like my daughter - do not meet that requirement. I understand with the cold weather for some of the outdoor area to be closed, but to not even be able to go towards the rockets, in which I didn't see any construction work being done right there, was disappointing. Hopefully some of this will change as we get into the warmer months - and maybe when you change over your Survivor exhibit to something else, you'll recognize that smaller kids want to participate in ALL the Hall of Science has to offer too. Thank you for listening.
Saw it in green, too. Very nice!
BORN ENVIRONMENTALISTS PEDESTRIANS AND CYCLISTS The world is worried about climate change due to pollution. Pollution control discussion parades are on to find ways and means to resolve the problem. Without any administration and support, single handed efforts have been steadily rendered by pedestrians all over the world to prevent pollution. It is in terms of total absence of emissions of any kind. This includes all age groups. In particular children enjoy the fun and adults feel safe. Pedestrians are all weather ally of the nature. Care is essential to provide pedestrians footpaths with railings on both sides of internal roads and by lanes in villages, towns and cities all over the world, as this aspect is as important as highways. Pedestrians are steady walkers and so the need to make them comfortable. The greatest contribution is by pedestrians to fight pollution by keeping the environment clean without any disturbance to the nature. They do not need any backup financially and physically too. What a wonderful feat is this! In fact architects in the world can come on the stage to ensure how footpaths can be made a part of safe and healthy life with elegant appearance and promoted by artists in sending a message of pedestrians’ natural efforts in helping to avoid climate change. Like highways, it is again stressed that footpaths are very important as they act as the real pointers for pollution control. In fact institutions like Nobel Foundation may think of awarding every year Nobel Prize for world pedestrians which proceeds can be exclusively earmarked for developing footpaths and maintenance thereof. The next step towards clean environment is to promote usage of bicycles for which special tracks can be in villages, towns and cities. Encouraging bicycle riders is as good as Olympics movements and surprisingly a daily routine as the best exercise to be fit. Industries can substantially render a helping hand by setting up bicycle manufacturing units for economical, sturdy and light weight models. Here on both sides of highways bicycle tracks can also be seriously thought of which would produce best champions to participate in various global events like Olympics. In the 2lst century, environment care carries a special weightage. Whatever efforts are on for pollution control, credit also goes to pedestrians and cyclists which is really a fun world for them too. H V Navangul Age 84
