Quiz-Samasya 2019 finals

  1. 1. PRELIMS -Answers
  2. 2. 1. • Soon after the _____X_____ Project which lasted from 1939-1946 a few of its original team members who were devastated by the effects of their prior project initiated this programme which serves as a indicator to the world regarding how fast they are destroying it.To achieve this effect they made use of an extremely ominous symbol , _____Y______ ___Z___ which gets updated every year.FITB.
  3. 3. • X- MANHATTAN PROJECT Y- DOOMSDAY CLOCK
  4. 4. 2. • In the following slide you will see a computer stimulated image of foliage as viewed by a certain species X, because our reality need not be same X’s reality.Not only has X the ability to see RGB spectrum like humans but also a bit of Y spectrum as shown in the image. This added capability enables X to view everything in a more 3 dimensional manner than what humans can see which makes them more capable than humans to maneuver around obstacles .ID X and Y
  5. 5. • X- birds Y-ultraviolet spectrum
  6. 6. 3. • Over the past century this specific point X has shifted from the coast of Northern Canada at present moving towards Siberia in Russia .Earlier X used to move only a distance of about 10 miles every year but recently there has been a drastic change as X moves about 40 miles every year, over the past 150 years X has travelled about 600 miles.This unprecedented travel which has baffled the scientific community has now affected the US military amid the partial Government shutdown as they are unable to get an exact location of X. ID X.
  7. 7. • MAGNETIC NORTH POLE
  8. 8. 4. • Scientists at MIT have developed a way to transmit X to specified people using lasers which are safe to the skin and the eye of any person in any setting. The technique employed by the team involves the absorption of light by water vapour whose vibration will in turn emit X. The scientists claim that this technique would work even in arid atmospheres as water vapour is a good absorbent of lasers. ID X.
  9. 9. • X-SOUND
  10. 10. 5. • In the following slide the you will see an image clicked by X at Vera Rubin Ridge before its descend into the clay region of Mount Sharp to collect and analyse mineral data. If you were in the place of X you would have called this image Y.ID X & Y
  11. 11. • X- CURIOSITY ROVER Y- SELFIE
  12. 12. 6. • Last year on Valentines day a plea was sent out by conversationalists on behalf of an ideal bachelor fondly called X , a Bolivian Sehuencas frog as he had been lacking a soul mate for the past 10 years. Recently his wish was granted when a wildlife conservation team was able find his soul mate named Y from the rain forests of Bolivia .Till she was found X was supposed to be the last member of that specific species which would otherwise have been extinct in the next five years. • ID X and Y , the ideal couple.
  13. 13. • X- ROMEO Y- JULIET
  14. 14. 7. • Called Computed Axial Lithography (CAL), the process starts with a Computer- Aided Design (CAD) model. Researchers use projected photons to illuminate the syrup-like resin, creating a continuously shifting video of projections as the vial rotates. The projection is calculated at each angle, researchers run an optimization algorithm and the result is a series of images that appears as a rotating video projection that can be played at a rate adjusted to the rotation of the resin vial. After several minutes, ___________ appears, the researchers stop the exposure and drain the uncured liquid, leaving only the finished product.This process can roughly be termed as the reverse of a CT scan.What is the technique used for?
  15. 15. • 3D PRINTING USING LIGHT
  16. 16. 8. • Similar to the optical tweezers scientists at University of Bristol have found a novel method to manipulate ___X___ to create a force field which is capable of moving objects and in a recent breakthrough they were able to sew threads making use of this technique opening doors to a whole new level of research in drug delivery and surgery.At present a crude form of this technique is quite common in several medical institutes to cure certain ailments, but with the above research the applications are unbound. FITB
  17. 17. • SOUND AGAIN
  18. 18. 9. • Alcometer is a device which makes use of the principle of differential absorption of wavelength by a sample.In the case of Alcometer an infrared cell is used as the source to allow infrared radiation to pass through the sample a detector is kept at the otherside to measure the the intensity of the light received. If the intensity of light received is less then sample is said to have a high content of X otherwise the detector will flag the sample to be normal.Im sure many of you would have encountered this device.What am I talking about?
  19. 19. • ALCOMETER MEASURES THE AMOUNT OF ALCOHOL IN THE BLOOD
  20. 20. 10. • In the following video the working of a NIST 4 balance or Kibble balance has been illustrated , In recent news these terms were trending as it brought about a radical change for the scientific community but not much of a change to the common man.What historic event are we blabbering about?
  21. 21. • REDEFINITION OF THE 1KG
  22. 22. 11. • This dream project of India which will put India in the front lines of this specific race is a portmanteau of two hindi words X and Y with the latter one loosely meaning Boat in hindi. This project XY requires enormous man hours to complete and has a considerable amount of risk involved. Give XY
  23. 23. • GAGANYAAN
  24. 24. 12. • Republic of Azerbaijan a former Sovient country close to the Caspian sea was recently in the news for being the first country to issue this one of a kind VISA to one of its most special visitor over the years who came there as a part of a tech conference, this special guest has been travelling around the globe for some time now communicating science and technology.Identify this personality.
  25. 25. SOPHIE THE HUMANOID
  26. 26. 13. • In the following slide is a portrait named Edmond de Belamy a member of of the series of paintings called La Famille de Belamy owned by Paris art based collective called Obvious It was recently sold by the auction house Christies at a whopping $432,500. What is so special about this painting that it costs a fortune
  27. 27. • THE PAINTING WAS ACTUALLY CREATED USING AN AI .THE SIGNATURE BELOW IS THE ALGORITHAM USED FOR ITS CREATION
  28. 28. 14. • Microsoft is now working on a project called Natik which aims at providing data connectivity to • the costal regions.A moonshot as they claim it to be employs cutting edge technology to anchor the self sustained Datacenter under water , Natik makes use of tidal waves to generate electricity. At present there are 864 servers arranged in this shipping sized container submerged in the seafloor close to Scotlands Orkney Islands.Eventhough the team has confusions regarding the economic viability of the project there is certainly one factor in this project compared to other land based data centers which saves them a lot of money.Put FUNDA.
  29. 29. COMPARED TO LAND BASED SYSYTEMS THIS ONE REQUIRES NO COOLING SYSTEM SINCE ITS SUBMERGED IN WATER , SAVING A HUGE AMOUNT OF MONEY AND REDUCING POLLUTION.
  30. 30. 15. • In the following image you will see the first version of X which was created by Y in the year 1869 , hence now celebrating its 150th birthday.ID X and Y
  31. 31. X- PERIODIC TABLE Y-DIMITRI MENDELEEV
  32. 32. 16. • Modern X typically consist of four thin layers: backing, release coating, primer, and adhesive, . Flexible backing materials are usually about 50–100 µm thick and include paper, polyethylene or polypropylene films, cloth, metal foil, vinyl, or foam. Backings have a coating on each side. The release coating, often a polyvinyl carbamate, prevents the X from adhering to itself when pulled off itself. The other side of the backing is covered with a primer that has an affinity for the adhesive and allows it to attach to the backing.What common household item are we talking about?

  34. 34. 17. • Read through the following physics limerickand identify which ill fated term Einstein tackled which he later called the biggest blunder of his life “Though Einstein's equations were firm, There was one thing that did make him squirm. A cosmos expandable Was not understandable, So he tacked on that ill-fated term”
  35. 35. COSMOLOGICAL CONSTANT
  36. 36. 18. • The word Oumuamua has its origin in Hawaiian ou, meaning 'reach out for', and mua, reduplicated for emphasis, meaning 'first, in advance of' .Basically Oumuamua means a messenger or scout sent from the distant past to reach out to us.Why has this odd name caught our attention since the October of 2017 ? And why is it baffling the scientific community?
  37. 37. • Oumuamua is the first and currently only interstellar object detected passing through the Solar System. • Scientists cant figure out its origin or its heading as it seems unaffected by the gravitational fields
  38. 38. 19. • A particular reaction involves the use of a pigment called the luciferin and an enzyme called luciferase, which produces a modification of the original pigment with the release of a characteristic form of energy. It is found commonly in marine organisms, and is believed to be a mechanism for self defense through startle, as a burglar alarm or for mate attraction. What is this phenomenon called?
  39. 39. • Bioluminiscence
  40. 40. 20. • The lobsters underbelly is made of chitin, a thin stretchy substance. It is made of 90% of water which lends the material elasticity. Stretching the material, actually makes it stiffer and it has a layered arrangement of the membrane, so cuts and gouges do not propagate into the interior. • This property has enabled the lobsters belly to be used as an alternative to making what?
  41. 41. • Car Tires.
