Einstein House Tour in Bern, Switzerland: A review!

Be it the internet, cell phones, TVs, digital cameras, MRI body scanners, and many other revolutionary things, we all owe them to Albert Einstein, the most influential scientist of the 20th century.

He spent much of his life in Switzerland, where he studied, worked, and found love.

But it’s within the heart of Bern, in a modest apartment building, where the secrets of Einstein’s genius truly lie.

It was here, at Kramgasse No. 49, that Albert Einstein lived, loved, and forever changed our understanding of the universe.

Step inside Albert Einstein’s house, now the Einstein Museum, and walk in the footsteps of genius!

Exploratorium in San Francisco – When the Destination is Science!

The Exploratorium in San Francisco provides a fertile platform for curious minds.

It opens the door to varied frontiers of knowledge for both children and adults. It encourages everyone to wonder – What? How? Why?

Abstract concepts of science are displayed in an easy-to-understand format and are highly interactive. No wonder, the Exploratorium is one of the top attractions in San Francisco.

The strict barriers between art and science blur in the different exhibits and present a creative space to think further, increase our ability to understand the world around us, and inspire us to strive for the unknown.

Here, the journey to every exhibit starts with wonder and ends with wonder.

While exploring the Exploratorium in San Francisco, I felt that despite our limitations and fallibilities, we humans are capable of greatness because we seek.

If you are in San Francisco then keep aside a day to explore Exploratorium – a destination that reveals our world to us through science, art, and human perception.

Discovery of the Higgs Boson at CERN, Switzerland

From the moment I heard that the Nobel Prize for Physics in 2013 has been awarded to Francois Englert and Peter W. Higgs for the theoretical discovery of a  mechanism that contributes to our understanding of the origin of mass of subatomic particles, and which recently was confirmed through the discovery of the predicted fundamental particle, by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC)I thought of sharing my experience of visiting CERN in Geneva, Switzerland with my readers.

The Neils Bohr Institute in Copenhagen, Denmark

We all remember Bohr’s atomic model, that we studied in Chemistry during our school days. Professor Neils Bohr, who won the Nobel prize in 1922 for discovering the fundamental structure and character of the atom, its components and how they interact, was a Danish citizen. When I arrived in Copenhagen, visiting The Neils Bohr Institute undoubtedly topped our priority list.

Mysterious World of Dreams – The Freud Museum in Vienna

The idiosyncrasy of dreams is mysterious yet fascinating. The rules of reality do not apply to the world of dreams. It is known yet unknown, it reflects our conscious mind yet it originates in the subconscious mind and the most interesting part to me is, it is unreal yet it shadows reality.
