Little history: Common Wealth Games were first organized in 1911 when it was felt that there is a need for an international sports event, to unite the british colonies. By then, only four countries namely united Kingdom, Australia, Canada and South Africa participated in this event. The event included only boxing, swimming, wrestling and athletics in its initial years.

Heaviest Star Found!!!!!

25 Jul

Very recently, the scientists spotted the Brighest star ever, which is said to be 265 times that of sun. Very huge.. isn’t it? Its named R136a1. huh.. these names!!!  😉

It may once have been as much as 320 solar masses. (Note: 1 SolarMass = 1.988435×10^30 kg)!!! Sorry Reverend (Weight lifting Champion) and Great Khali, Even you can’t lift it 😉 !!

This weight is twice the weight of previously known heaviest stars. Such is its over-weight! May be thats the reason why its dieting. Yes! it is said that the star is losing weight with time.

An Astrophysicist, Crowther (University of Sheffield, Northern England) said, “Unlike humans, these stars are born heavy and lose weight as they age. R136a1 is already middle-aged and has undergone an intense weight loss programme”.

According to him, It was identified in a star cluster in the Tarantula Nebula drifting through one of the milkyway’s neighbouring galaxies.

Star Stats:

  • Named as R136a1
  • 320 SolarMasses and (reducing 50 solar masses evey few MILLION years. :))
  • Luminous Intensity ~ 8,700,700 times that of Sun 😮
  • The surface temperature on the temperature is 40,000 degress celsius (i.e, 7 times that of sun)

This Star became a “Star” over night!!!!!!!!!!!

Superb mystery game! You are ‘Nick Bounty’ chasing the mystery and you..
Come’on, no more description, just play the game and enjoy the thrill of being a kind of detective. Just use your mouse to find the clues.

I like the mix of fun and spyness in it. Walkthroughs are available, but better don’t see them and solve it yourselves to have the full fun!
And I’m sure you will like it. You can even scold me “here” if you didn’t like it.
