Earth had Two Moons Research Scientists

According to scientists, the Earth may have once had a small second moon.

Researchers argue that the smaller moon disappeared in a collision with its “big sister.” They believe that this would explain the mysterious existence of mountains on the far side of the Moon.

Researchers have tried to understand why the visible side of the Moon is flat and cratered, while the rarely-seen hemisphere is heavily cratered and has mountains with altitudes as high as 3,000 m. In time, numerous theories have been proposed to explain these aspects.

Recently, researchers have argued that the Earth was hit by a planet the size of Mars about four billion years ago. Debris resulting from the impact were aggregated and led to the formation of the Moon.

However, scientists believe that it could have been another smaller celestial body, composed of the same material, that remained locked in a gravitational field located between the Earth and Moon.

Dr Martin Jutzi from the University of Bern, Switzerland said that after millions of years of captivity between the two planets, the moon came into a little collision with its “big sister”, at a speed of less than three kilometers per second.

Scientists claim that the impact would have led to the accumulation of material on the lunar crust and would also have redistributed the magma on the visible side of the Moon.

Researchers involved in this study hope that data from NASA missions will support or refute their theory.

Details of these theories have been published in the journal Nature.

2013 BMW F30 3-Series

F30 BMW 3 Series

The BMW 3-Series may not be the best seller in India but it does account for a big chunk of its sales at the end of the month. The car has been with us for years now and has also undergone a facelift during its lifecycle. The model that followed the original E90 BMW 3-Series had a redesigned front bumper and bonnet while at the rear new tail lamps gave it a fresh look. With the next generation of the 3-Series BMW might go the 5-Series way in the design department.

F30 BMW 3 SeriesThe first prototype has been spotted under heavy disguise and from what we could make out, the new 3-Series does share fair bit of its styling cues with the new 5er. First of all the headlamp cluster with its twin corona lights is more elongated and resembles that of the F10 BMW 5-Series. The twin kidney grille is more upright and wider, very much like that of the BMW 6 Series convertible which was launched a few months back.

F30 BMW 3 SeriesThe overall proportions of the car look similar to the current 3-Series but with added character lines running down its body. At the rear too, the tail lamps are very much similar to those on the F10 BMW 5 Series. Although, you cannot see the rear lamps in detail, the way they have been disguised gives away much of their shape. Also, the rear end, especially the boot lid with its prominent crease on the top has a hint of the F10 BMW 5 Series.

F30 BMW 3 SeriesIn India, BMW offers two petrol and one diesel option on the BMW 3-Series. The 3.0 litre engine on the 330i puts out 190 KW while the 2.0 litre version on the 320i puts out 115 KW of power. The 320d which is the best seller among the BMW 3-Series models, puts out 135 KW and 380 Nm of torque from its four cylinder diesel engine. The F30 BMW 3-Series is expected to come with new greener and fuel efficient engines along with BMW’s EfficientDynamics technology.

E-Ticket Racket – IRCTC Cracks Whip on Agents

Booking made easy
It’s the great Indian Railways e-ticketing ripoff. An illegal network of agents who not only plough in profits to the tune of lakhs by conning passengers to cough up five times the e-ticketing fee, but also hacking into the IRCTC website to corner tatkal tickets in bulk.

So, if you wondered why a confirmed tatkal ticket is so difficult to get, you have got your answer. Also, when you are being charged Rs 100 by a travel agent for a confirmed ticket, you are being duped. The actual fee is Rs 20.

The Indian Railways Catering and Tourism Corporation (IRCTC), the principal agency for ticketing, has recently stumbled upon this scam. Sources said sub-agents have developed a software package through which they hack into the IRCTC website during the opening hours of 8am to 9am and book tatkal tickets .

These shocking revelations have prompted IRCTC to set up an anti-fraud squad at the internet ticketing centre.

In the past three months, the vigilance department has launched surprise raids on about 150 sub-agents. Now, it has fixed the rules for booking e-tickets. First, only a single user can register on one email ID to book tickets. And agents will not be permitted to book tatkal or normal tickets between 8am to 9am when the IRCTC website opens.

Second, registration of all new principal and sub-agents has been stopped.

The department has also found that travel agents have created several IDs to apply for e-tickets, which were later de-activated. In June alone, the department deactivated around 2,831 multiple user IDs used to issue e-tickets. An IRCTC official said, “It has been found that passengers are charged somewhere between Rs 100 and 200 for every e-ticket, but no acknowledgement slip or receipt is given. Instead passengers are told these charges are included in the price of the fare. Also, agents are supposed to charge a fee for every PNR number, but they charge for every passenger on a particular ticket. Agents also don’t ask passengers to fill up requisition forms before issuing tickets nor do they display ticket charges anywhere in their offices. This is in gross violation of rules.”

New CB Unicorn 150 cc Motorbike


If you are looking to buy yourself a new 150-cc CB Unicorn motorbike, you should keep in mind that Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India has increased the waiting period for its flagship model to six months on account of huge demand.

The company, after entering India, introduced the Unicorn in 2005. Built by Honda’s R&D team in Japan and internally called the CBF150M, it was made to order for Indian road conditions.

However, after the launch of its first edition, the company silently revamped it with minor changes and termed it

“CB Unicorn” to comply with Euro III norms.

Unicorn competes in the fiercely fought 150-cc segment, which has Pulsar from Bajaj Auto Ltd and the Apache 160-cc of TVS Motor Company.

A senior company official confirmed that the waiting period has been increased to six months due to the unprecedented demand.
