Andromeda darshini and Milkyway milkshake

So came the idea of a fusion between the food and astronomy. Eventhough it looks being miles apart yet it has a common ground in getting youngesters attracted to it. So the end product was an ” Astronomy Themed Restaurant”

Without any doubt it is a crowd puller and more so youngesters who are willing to experiment in trying different dishes than the ones they have daily.

Two galaxies are squaring off in Corvus and here are the latest pictures. But when two galaxies collide, the stars that compose them usually do not. That’s because galaxies are mostly empty space and, however bright, stars only take up only a small amount of that space. During the slow, hundred million year collision, one galaxy can still rip the other apart gravitationally, and dust and gas common to both galaxies does collide. In this clash of the titans, dark dust pillars mark massive molecular clouds are being compressed during the galactic encounter, causing the rapid birth of millions of stars, some of which are gravitationally bound together in massive star clusters.

Kanva Reservoir

Perched in a small valley at a distance of around 55Kms from Bangalore, it is an ideal one-day joy ride from the city. It has an interesting history of its own, being planned by by none other than the Dewan of the Princely state of Mysore Sir M.Visvesvaraya in the year 1946

Perched in a small valley at a distance of around 55Kms from Bangalore, it is an ideal one-day joy ride from the city.Once we reach Janapada Loka after Channapattana, there is a deviation of 8kms from the highway. This road leads into a small mountain terrain and a suddenly there is a huge water body at our view. Kanva reservoir is a nice get-away spot from the hectic life of the city.
