How black holes shape the cosmos

E-mail Print PDF

Astrophysicists from Heidelberg, Garching, and the USA gained new insights into the formation and evolution of galaxies. They calculated how black holes influence the distribution of dark matter, how heavy elements are produced and distributed throughout the cosmos, and where magnetic fields originate. This was possible by developing and programming a new simulation model for the universe, which created the most extensive simulations of this kind to date. First results of the “IllustrisTNG” project have now been published in three articles in the journal Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society. These findings should help to answer fundamental questions in cosmology.

Day by day, world has been being covered by natural disasters including droughts, floods, hurricanes and many more. When we consider about our day to day lives, our observances over natural surroundings around us, generally we all have a perception that there is something wrong with nature and something which has bad future effects has been happening.

Carbon Capture Begins : An analysis of Post-Combustion Carbon Capture Storage (CCS)

E-mail Print PDF


The last article of this series looked into the Pre-combustion CCS and the recent efficiency levels reported. When it comes to CCS the first assumption is that carbon capture is only possible post combustion of the participating fuel.  But, the previous article proved there are many other possibilities.The figure below shows the different stages CC can be done. This article looks into the post combustion CCS. With the previous knowledge of the pre-combustion this would be easier to understand.

In the past month, more than 1,200 people died during amid flooding in Bangladesh, Nepal and India. This year’s monsoon season has brought torrential downpours that have submerged wide swaths of South Asia, destroying tens of thousands of homes, schools and hospitals and affecting up to 40 million people. Aid organizations warns  it is one of the worst regional humanitarian crises this decade, with millions of people facing severe food shortages and disease caused by flood waters. Flood victims in southern Nepal stated that many paddy fields and agricultural lands destroyed causing massive economic crisis. Two months ago, Sri Lanka also faced to such type of heavy disaster as a result of unprecedented rainfall and hundreds of people lost their lives while millions became refugees. It`s obviously clear that something unusual and unprecedented have been happening in our surrounding facing it in critical manner. From decades, environmental scientists been continuously warns South Asia can become a hotspot of global climatic changes which are caused by hazardous effects of the universal phenomena, global warming. It is fact that the policy makers should considered to create warning systems to change countries policies towards eco-friendly pathways.

Carbon Capture Begins : An analysis of Pre-Combustion Carbon Capture Storage (CCS)

E-mail Print PDF

CO2 emissions related to Anthropogenic energy are increasing everyday. Although the countries have pledged to decrease their fossil fuel based emissions, still there are many fossil fuel power generation stations and vehicles introduced to the consumer. Therefore, in addition to moving away from fossil fuel sources there is a need to implement methods to capture the emissions to keep the harm mitigated. In the first article of this series we briefly introduced the concept of CCS and its role in reducing the global CO2 emissions.
