Bangalore forgot to vote ???

As the reports trickle in regarding the voting percentage, the disappointment is eminent across the Election Awareness Groups. Karnataka logs in around 52% and Bangalore reports a low 45% voting. This despite a lot of publicity and awareness created by different groups and media cells.

In a sense it been no difference as the numbers are in accordance with the previous ones but with a wave of online & offline campaigning by different groups, a lot of expectation were there regarding the youths. Its has to be seen ro which age group are the people who voted belong to.

A lot of effort has been put been put in by the following groups :

The 2.5-meter telescope at Apache Point Observatory, named the Sloan Foundation Telescope in recognition of the pivotal and generous support of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation through all phases of the SDSS. All SDSS imaging and spectroscopy were carried out with the Sloan Telescope, equipped with a large format digital camera and fiber-fed spectrographs that measured spectra of 640 objects at a time. These facilities, together with some new instruments, are also being used for SDSS-III.

Messier 51, The Whirlpool Galaxy. The SDSS image of this famous spiral galaxy (interacting with a smaller neighbor at the lower left) occupies about three one-millionths of the total sky area imaged by the SDSS. The SDSS imaging survey detected about 100 million galaxies, most of them much more distant, and thus much smaller and fainter in appearance, than M51. Some of these distant galaxies can be seen as small extended sources on this image, while the sharper, point-like sources are mostly foreground stars in our own Milky Way galaxy. The diameter of M51 is roughly 75,000 light years.
