Euclid is an English name means “renowned and glorious”, that is certainly a reflection of his personality. He was a famous mathematician, born in Alexandria, Egypt around 365 B.C and was known as the founding father of geometry. He obtained much of his insightful knowledge from Plato’s students in Athens, Greece.
Any system of two massive, self-gravitating, and co-orbiting objects such as the Earth-Sun system or Earth-Moon system, produces five points of stability. Here the gravitational pull of both the objects balances each other and creates a small area that serves as a parking space for satellites and spacecraft missions. For some of those positions, even orbital corrections or control thrusters are not required. As well as there is low fuel consumption upon staying around those positions. These points are known as the Lagrange points or libration points or just L points.
Here is a story of one of the victims of this world whose efforts radically changed several branches of physics. He is majorly known for his work in the development of statistical mechanics and the statistical description of the second law of thermodynamics. He was one of the most important advocates of atomic theory at the time when that scientific model was highly argumentative.
Albert Einstein (1875–1955) is considered as the most influential and recognizable scientist of the 20th century. He presented the theory of relativity which changed our prior concepts regarding space and time. This theory now serves as one of the two pillars of modern physics, the other one being quantum theory.
The Nobel prize was named after Alfred Bernhard Nobel, who was a Swedish chemist as well as engineer, born in Stockholm. In 1895, he signed his last testament and donated the majority of his wealth to establish the Nobel prizes, to leave behind a better legacy. These are awarded annually in the fields of physical sciences, chemistry, literature, and medical sciences/physiology in Stockholm, Sweden. While the peace prize is awarded in Oslo, Norway.
The Starlink satellite constellation is an ambitious project initiated by SpaceX’s CEO Elon Musk to provide high-speed internet anywhere around the globe.
