Getting your first vaccine dose post complete recovery could help you gain some additional immunity against the virus when compared to people who were lucky enough not to get infected in the recent past.
@MrigDixit Dr Siddharth Gandhi from the University of Warwick has carved out a name for himself at a young age. He has been conducting a significant amount of research to understand the atmospheres of exoplanets.
@MrigDixit In this exclusive interview, he talks about his latest research, which highlights the chemical fingerprint of an exoplanet named Osiris, and opens up about exoplanet science, life beyond Earth and more.
In a world far older than our tame streets lined with fast-food joints, cafes and global supermarkets, a stone-age man stalked his large prey to attack it at the right moment with the most advanced stone tools available to him.
The #OxfordAstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, a version of which is also being used in India, is made from an adenovirus isolated from chimpanzee poop, which has been genetically changed so that it is impossible for it to grow in humans.
Earlier this week, on March 29, the daytime temperature in Delhi breached the 40°C-mark—unprecedented for the month of March. If the forecasts hold true, the capital city could very well breach the record heat of 2019 in the upcoming summer months from April to June.
As per the latest seasonal outlook from the India Meteorological Department (IMD), Delhi, along with Haryana and Chandigarh, could witness 0.62°C warmer-than-normal temperatures from April to June.
The analysis has revealed logging and land conversion for various agricultural practices as the two primary factors behind the wipeout of these forests, which serve as the largest reservoirs of carbon and effectively mitigate #GlobalWarming.
Over the past few decades, these dietary guidelines have evolved in line with the emerging scientific evidence with an aim to make people healthier while not compromising nature’s ability to sustain future generations.
@iiscbangalore@MrigDixit Dr Rohini M Godbole, a renowned particle physicist from the Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru (@iiscbangalore), has proved her mettle in the field of science not just in India but across the globe.
Exercise has for long been recommended as cognitive-behavioural therapy for patients with #depression, yet new evidence suggests that the #COVID19Pandemic changed the nature of the relationship between physical activity and mental health.
The study of college students, conducted before and during the #pandemic, revealed the average steps of subjects declined from 10,000 to 4,600 steps per day and rates of #depression increased from 32 per cent to 61 per cent.
#WorldPolarBearDay: Here are some of the most interesting facts about polar bears, which make them one-of-a-kind in the diverse animal kingdom.
The big, burly white polar bears of the Arctic are among the most loved animals on the planet. However, in recent decades these magnificent animals, which are vital for the health of the Arctic environment, are facing several threats, including the omnipresent climate change.
In the form of retreating ice, we are snatching away their home inch-by-inch year-on-year. In fact, in 2020, a study has projected that polar bears could be gone by 2100 if emissions remain unchecked.
@MrigDixit Before us—the modern human beings or Homo sapiens—tens of thousands of years ago, the planet was dominated by an ancient sibling of ours called #Neanderthals or Homo neanderthalensis.
@MrigDixit While their existence dates back to at least 200,000 years ago, Neanderthals went extinct roughly 40,000 years ago. Several theories have emerged in recent years explaining the cause of their extinction—from #climatechange to a deadly disease.
In a rather surprising, yet exciting discovery, researchers have spotted a new population of blue #whales swimming in the western #IndianOcean. The discovery is unique as the population was spotted from the unusual song sung by these exotic sea creatures.
Blue whales or #Balaenoptera musculus are the largest living animals on the planet and they use songs to communicate and socialise. They are often identified by their unique low-frequency sounds, which can be louder than a jet engine, with the pitch reaching up to 188 decibels.
