NASA Shuttle Endeavor fly by Sacramento River/ Tower Bridge/ State Capit...



Here is a video of the flyby of Endeavor over Sacramento, CA. We went to downtown Sacramento to watch it. It was an amazing experience. Thousands of people gathered on  rooftops of buildings, hotels & parking garages. We were on the Tower Bridge when the piggy-back Endeavor flew over us. It was pretty low and the thundering sound of the Boeing 747 sound was pretty loud.   Thanks mom for taking us there and for recording this video and thanks NASA for flying it to Sacramento. Glad that we could be part of 2 historical NASA shuttle events....

Curiosity Landing @ Ames

Even though this happened long time ago, I would like to talk about my experience:

My family and I went to NASA Ames... I was a VIP and got to go to the VIP room. There was snacks there. Anyway... I went to see some exibhits, one of them had a shuttle landing simulation. I almost landed perfectly! There was a tlak by Chris McKay.. I liked the part where he tlaked that there are two types of protein, left-handed( like everything on Earth) and right-handed. Left-handed prpteins only "stack" with left-handed proteins and so forth. If we find right-handed proteins on Mars that would be amazing... There was other talks. For example, In NASA Ames' Wind Tunnel, the parachute that helped land MSL was tested.

On that day, we could see the International Space Station(ISS) and Mars in the sky. It was a great day!  

Now, The Mars Curiosity rover survived the "brain surgery" and since the rover landed in a alluvial fan, -- which are created when water deposits sediment-- Curiosity is going to look for more clues for water :

"A vast alluvial fan blossoms across the desolate landscape between the Kunlunand Altun mountain ranges that form the southern border of the Taklamakan Desert in Xinjiang. The left side is the active part of the fan, and appears blue from water flowing in the many small streams" - Wikipedia

Also, please  support this Lego Curiosity rover:

Oh my!

Oh my, what 2 weeks it's been...... overwhelming, fun , excitement for our family after the release of the THNKR show "PRODIGIES"....their Youtube gone viral...in 24 hrs about 50,000 hits....in the midst of calls & emails from reporters and producers, we balance our lives and keep up with the hectic schedule of both kids... there's always something new happening in our lives....life as a mom to child prodigies is different....their energy, their passion, their intensities, their aspirations, their quirks can just wear you down at times and wish you could escape to a tranquil world but all that feelings melt away seeing their eyes twinkle and their joys when they achieve their dreams !

Yesterday, one of our friends said "You must be a proud & happy mom seeing Tanishq interviewed on CNN at 9 yrs old" ...my response ..."yes, but ..." and the reply " this is the result of your hard work and sacrifices for the last 9 years of parenting "

Yesterday night....was a melt down ... our little Einstein didn't want to sleep ...he hates it so much... that we had to sit up till 1am trying to convince the importance of sleep ...which just went to deaf ears....finally drifted off to sleep on my lap....melts your heart to see that innocent face at rest....

Being parents to 2 such child geniuses have humbled us as adults........

Did you see?

Did you see a the triangle in the night sky becuase of Moon, Mars, and Regulus?

Such event might only happen once every hundered million years or so! Why? This is because Regulus is a star(it is really not, it is probably a eclipsing binary system. It orbits the the galactic center of the Milky Way which takes probably less than 230 million years(How long it takes the Sun to orbit the galalctic center of the Milky Way) or more. It depends Where Regulus is located in the Milky Way.

Facts about planets in the sky:

Venus is the brightest object in the sky. Mars is the red-looking star. It has this retrograde motion because of Earth and Mars in their orbit around the Sun

News..

Hey,


Here is some news:

1. I did my first exam

2. I am now the vice president of an astronomy club!

3. I did the vocabulary bee, science bee, and spelling bee. In the vocabulary bee, there's two phases-- phase one and phase two-- which is in all the bees except science bee which is just a test with 25 questions. In phase 1, it is written, the test is multiple choice. Phase 2 is oral. There is 8 rounds; they first tell you the word and project the multiple choice answers.
The spelling bee is probably the most lenient spelling bee in the world! In the first phase, The pronounce the word, say orgin, part of speech, and definition. Then you spell it. They have 25 words to spell. In phase 2 nobody's out! Even if you get every question wrong in the first phase. In this phase, there's 6 rounds. if you get the spelling wrong once, you're still in! Anyway, I got 3rd place in the science bee!

4. Today I am going to a Kings Basketball game..Hope they win!!

Ok, bye!

(for Arduino Beginners)Arduino problem with DC motor in sparkfun inventor's kit

Hi,


I noticed that somehow Sparkfun inventor's kit gives two types of transistors. I noticed this when i was doing a project with DC motors and Arduino. It wants us to use P2N2222AG (actually marked P2N222A18 in my kit) and one of them was marked saying that, the other says nonsense! The one marked is the one you should use, not the one with the nonsense, or then perhaps you might spend 1-3 hours just why it isn't working! When it works, it is hard to see but gives a buzzing sound. IF it still dosen't work, go here:http://blog.ringerc.id.au/2012/01/sparkfun-inventors-kit-circ-03-motor.html

Hope u have fun!

This is the day that Tiara had her party and when my symptoms got worse. I went to the doctor and she said it is a flu. She said no thing like Meningitis, a bacterial infection of the membranes covering the brain and spinal cord. There are different types of them depending on what is the bacteria affecting the brain and spinal cord. After the appointment, We went to KidzArt, where the party is. Tiara and I had fun. We made piggy banks with markers( don't ever try this some of them came bad)...We had pizza and a nice cake... also the presents were nice..

Bye!

I went for my singing class. But before I went, I had to go with my sister, Tiara on a class field trip . It was at a science museum for kids age 2-8 as thats what it says in their site. All they do is play! Well it was okay, nothing interesting for me, was bored after playing for sometime. After the museum we had lunch with my sister's friends. Then I went to my singing class. Guess what I brought for doing in my break time.... 3 IEEE Spectrum magazines! I like them a lot. especially their "hands-on" section. I read that first always. The singing class was fun. We are going to learn Amazing Grace in Cherokee version and Morning Song, another Cherokee song. We will also learn a few other songs but these two songs are the only songs that I know we will be singing. I got in the car after class and my dad drove back(as usual) and after that me and my family had dinner and the the time for bed (the worst part in the day for me ) ...the end!

Ok bye

Today is Wednesday, January 18, 2012

Today I helped planet hunters, an online site where users can help find exoplanets(planets outside our solar system and orbiting other planets: www.planethunters.org). I did that for about an hour. I then went and learned, did my home-school work (language arts & pre-algebra). Also today was the day I had to go to Physics college class in ARC. It was my first day for the class but I am not enrolled yet. I might soon. I came back and started to read a IEEE spectrum magazine, the old ones from my dad's subscription. I love to read the articles there. Then had dinner and went to sleep, which I hate to do .

Yesterday was January 17 , first day of college spring semester, I was trying to get into a college class in SCC. I got permission but the dean of counseling in the college didn't allow me since I was new and because of my young age (8 yrs). The process is long and somehow the vice president had to do something with the situation and denied me to go there! I got so angry & :-<
The professor was nice and the class was on dinosaurs and biology, one of my favorite subject. Right this moment I'm sad that I cannot get into both the classes that I want, Conceptual Physics and a biology/paleontology class because I liked both classes.


Ok then, bye - Tanishq

P.S. Even though it says this is written by Dr. T (my mom), it is written by Tanishq, me
