My priorities are Performance reliability and quality Cost I'll be buying the laptop in India, which has most of the models available in the states and Europe. Thanks in Advance !!
  2. ahhh, you should hear some of the ISRO scientists talk about their 'mom' and 'naughty boy'
  3. ISRO's Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) marks a year in orbit around Mars! The maiden Indian satellite is still going strong with all sensors still functioning and ISRO predicts that it will remain in service for several years. To celebrate the occasion, ISRO has released a Mars Atlas with more than a hundred pictures of Mars. " The images from Mars Color Camera (MCC) have provided unique information about Mars at varying spatial resolutions. It has obtained Mars Global data showing clouds, dust in atmosphere and surface albedo variations, when acquired from apoapsis at around 72000 km. On the other hand high resolution images acquired from periapsis show details of various morphological features on the surface of Mars. Some of these images have been showcased in this atlas. The images have been categorized depending upon the Martian surface and atmospheric processes. " Link

  5. hello Everyone ! I have found the KSP community to be one of the most knowledgeable and Helpful forums on the internet, so I come to you in search of a little advice. I have been offered a job as a Social Media Executive and SEO Planner with a small Start-up. I find the role to very interesting and I do have some of the basic skills and knowledge to be an SME. my question is, should I take it up ? I currently work as an English Trainer and I don't have any pressing financial constraints to worry about. I am concerned with career growth and advancement opportunities. where does this job lead to ? any advice or personal experience would be welcome...
  6. For the first time, ISRO has released a video showing footage from an on-board camera! the video is from the GSLV D6 launch on Aug 27, this launch was important because it was using an indian Cryogenic upper stage engine ( rather than the usual Russian ) the Payload was a new GSAT. the vid shows the separation of the first stage along with the strap-on boosters, and the ignition of the Cryogenic upper stage.

  7. awww shucks only for people with more than 4 gigs of RAM then ?
  8. I have a 64 bit Windows 10, with 4 GB RAM, and a 2GB Graphics card. will I get any performance improvement out of this ?
  9. Hi ! I was a Bharat ( indian ) Scout a long time ago ! I got till Squad Leader and I had the Climbing, bridging and surveying badges.
  10. As some of you might have heard, The former president of India, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam died on July 27, 2015. Kalam was held in very High regard in India for his contributions to India's Space, Missile and Nuclear programs and also for being one of the most Inspiring leaders the country has seen. I highly recommend reading more about the man and some of his books. ISRO recently released several pictures featuring Kalam during his time with ISRO. I have posted some of the more interesting and thought provoking images here, looking at these makes me think whether it is funding or spirit and leadership that are more important for achieving great things. Perhaps ISRO can be best explained by this statement from Dr Vikram Sarabhai, considered the father of Indian Space Programme.. " There are some who question the relevance of space activities in a developing nation. To us, there is no ambiguity of purpose. We do not have the fantasy of competing with the economically advanced nations in the exploration of the Moon or the planets or manned space-flight. But we are convinced that if we are to play a meaningful role nationally, and in the community of nations, we must be second to none in the application of advanced technologies to the real problems of man and society. "
  11. Please make it more efficient, my poor PC can only do so much
  12. 7/10, simple and witty, but the badges could be smaller.
  13. Flying on an aircraft had a been one of dreams for a long time and I finally had a chance to fly a few days ago from Bangalore to Chennai, India. it was a short flight, only 40 mins. but I loved it ! the thrill of the aircraft accelerating on the runway ! that moment when it banked ! and that jolt when it landed !! I know it all sounds a little childish, but after years of watching members of my family travel on aircraft, and countless hours on flight simulator X,it was a special moment for me and something that I will remember for a long time. so please, share your first flights, your thoughts and special moments on aircraft. I traveled on a Spice Jet Bombardier Dash-8 Q400.
  14. yes, I mean can you get a sufficiently powerful laser easily ? at a cost and quantity where it could be called a genuine threat to flight ? if not, then this whole episode seems silly.
  15. I remember reading the 'The laser to the pilot's eye' trick in tom Clancy's "debt of honor" but that was a spec-ops team with a military grade laser designator, do commercial lasers have sufficient range and power to blind pilots landing/taking off ?
