392. How do night goggles work and what type of energy do they use?

Truth is, not all types of light is visible. The light that we can see is only part of the electromagnetic spectrum .There are other types of light, such as infrared and ultraviolet light, which cannot be seen by the naked eye .
In the darkest places, there will always be a little light, even if it only is infrared light. What the googles do is they "enhance the image". This means that the goggles "amplifies the light" if you will.

395. What is TX- 2 initiative?

Double the number of Tigers by 2022.
Tigers are the largest species of cat and one of the most iconic animals on the planet. One hundred years ago, there were 100,000 wild tigers.
By the year 2010, as few as 3,200 wild tigers remained.
This shocking 97% population decline was driven by rampant poaching and habitat loss. In 2010, governments of the 13 tiger range countries decided innovative conservation efforts were needed. The most ambitious and visionary species conservation goal was set: to double the number of wild tigers by 2022 – the next Chinese year of the tiger.
The goal is called Tx2 running by WWF.

419. How do we judge the direction of a sound?

We can get the direction of sound only because we have two ears. The sound waves reach the right and left ear with a small time difference because the ears are at slightly different distances from the source of sound. The ear drums vibrate and the ear ossicle transmits the impulse to the inner ear. The inner ear sends it for the to the brain where the signals from both ears reach at marginally different times. The brain calculate the direction of the sound from the tiny difference in these times.

430. How does snow form?

Snow is formed when
temperatures are low
and there is moisture in
the atmosphere in the
form of tiny ice crystals.
When these tiny ice
crystals collide they
stick together in clouds
to become snowflakes.
If enough ice crystals
stick together, they'll
become heavy enough
to fall to the ground.
This tends to occur
when the temperature
is below 2°C. So it's not
expected in many parts
of Africa due to the heat.

443. Why do various planets appear to be of different colours?

Each planet has a different colour, because of its unique compositions. Mercury is grey. Since this planet has no atmosphere, we see only the dark rocky surfaces with plains, craters and ridges like those on the Moon. Venus is yellowish white due to the thickness of is colourless sulphuric acid clouds. Mars, the red orange planet is covered with a red dust of iron oxide. It has some spectacular features like volcanoes and enormous mountains. Jupiter has white and orange bands. Ammonia clouds cause the white bands, while orange is due to the ammonium hydrosulphide clouds. The north of Saturn is blue and the south, pale yellow. The ring around the planet blocks the Sun's rays from reaching the northern half. Uranus and Neptune appears light blue due to the methane clouds. Neptune is slightly darker blue because of its great distance from the sun. When watched from space Earth appears to be light-blue with white patches of clouds.

452. What is bleed holes ?

This is the reason for those holes ( Bleed Holes ) in the windows of Flight:
Flying 35,000 feet above the ground, the air pressure is very low, The cabin of the plane is pressurised so much that anyone if exposed to that low air pressure can just pass out. In order to avoid anything like this, the cabin is pressurised to a greater extent compared to outside air.
This pressure is not good for the plane but for the passengers and that is why there’s a need to release some of the strain this puts on the aircraft. These holes named as bleed holes help in strain releasing and play an integral role in giving us a safe fly.
These bleed holes allow pressure to be balanced out between the cabin and gap between panes. It is with these holes that the internal moisture is released, no frost covering occurs on the mirror and no view blockage occurs.

455. Where does the oxygen we breathe come from?

Gaseous oxygen was created on the Earth about 3.5 billion years ago. At that time, the UV light of the sun decomposed the water vapour molecules present in the atmosphere, and released oxygen and hydrogen. But a major part of the oxygen immediately reacted with other substances, so that it was no longer available in the atmosphere as gas. Oxygen was also produced by the seas, where the 'blue algae' carried out photosynthesis. These bacteria converted sunlight and carbon dioxide into energy. In the process, gaseous oxygen was released as a 'waste product', which accumulated in the atmosphere. About one billion years ago, about one-twentieth (4%) of the atmosphere consisted of oxygen.

With the discovery of the sea route to India, the Europeans became increasingly familiar with the continent of Africa; explorers particularly took note of its extensive and diverse natural reserves. Gold and diamonds were found in plenty in the south of Africa. The British and the Boers fought here for a good bargain. Even the Churches began to take interest in this continent and sent their missionaries deep into interior of Africa. From all over Africa, especially Timbuktu, numerous tribal people were caught and forcibly sent over to America as slaves.

460. What happens in an atom bomb explosion?

Unlike an atomic power plant, where a chain reaction for splitting uranium is allowed to run in a controlled way, in an atomic bomb it runs at lightning speed and totally out of control. The explosion gives rise to temperature of over 10 million °C. This strong heating creates an immense pressure wave. The pressure and the heat wave destroy everything in its surroundings. Tens of thousands of people were killed immediately when the two American atom bombs were thrown on Hiroshima and Nagasaki on August 6 and August 9, 1945, respectively. The infamous 'mushroom cloud' rock up to a height of 13 km and about 20 minutes later radioactive rain fell from this cloud on the two cities. A number of people have died or have developed abnormalities which are the consequences of the radioactivity caused during the explosion.

461. Why is it difficult for the wandering albatross to take off?

Wandering albatrosses are quite heavy, and have to do a warm-up before lifting themselves up into the air-just like an aircraft that increases its speed on the runway. They often have difficulty if the wind speed is below 12 km/h. They usually glide when they are in the air because a lot of energy is consumed in flapping their wings. Albatrosses, which have the largest wingspan of 3-5 m in the animal kingdom, cover thousands of kilometres in the air and are capable of remaining in the air without flapping their wings for several hours. They mate for life and return to the small islands to the north of Antarctic for breeding.

462. How do bats orient themselves with ultrasounds?

Bats cannot see very well. To orient themselves during their night flights, they emit ultrasounds. We cannot hear these sounds. The ultrasonic waves falling on obstacles or preys get 'reflected' back and reach the sensitive ears of bats. Thus, they come to know what all is present around them and where their prey is. This concept is also used in shipping to determine the depth of the sea using a device called sonar. It comprises a sound transmitter, a receiver, and a clock. The time difference between sending and receiving sound waves is measured, which is used to calculate the depth of the sea.

463. Why is the moon invisible at times?

We cannot see the moon, which reflects the light from the sun, when sunlight falling on it is not visible from the Earth, or when something comes in the way of the reflected light. The first phenomenon occurs every four weeks at new moon. At this time, the moon is positioned between the Earth and the sun. It reflects the light, but from the 'invisible side' so that we cannot see its illuminated surface. The second phenomenon occurs during a lunar eclipse. In this case, the Earth is positioned on a straight line between the sun and the moon, and consequently the sunlight does not fall on the moon.

464. Which planet has the strongest winds?

Neptune has the strongest winds in the Solar System. Winds whip clouds of frozen methane across the planet at speeds of more than 1,200 miles per hour (2,000 kilometers per hour). This is close to the top speed of a U.S. Navy F/A-18 Hornet fighter jet!

465. What is the Largest mobile Network in the world?

With subscriber strength of 851.2 million, China Mobile is undoubtedly the champion mobile network operator in the world. China Mobile was conceived in 1999 as a result of the China Telecom break which was originally founded on September 3rd, 1997. The headquarters of China Mobile are located in Beijing, People's Republic of China, and it has since dominated the mobile service industry in China. China Mobile is under the direct control of the People's Republic of China as it is an enterprise owned by the state. China Mobile has a market share of 70% and continues to control the vast majority of its mobile services market with the remaining 30% being shared between China Unicom with 20% shares and China Telecom with 10% shares in the mobile service market.

467. Who invented the lock and key?

Linus Yale, Jr.
In 1861, Linus Yale, Jr.  was inspired by the original 1840s pin-tumbler lock designed by his father, thus inventing and patenting a smaller flat key with serrated edges as well as pins of varying lengths within the lock itself, the same design of the pin-tumbler lock which still remains in use today.

468. What is a circuit breaker in stock exchange?

A circuit breaker is a financial regulatory instrument that is in place to prevent stock market crashes from occurring. Since their inception, circuit breakers have been modified to prevent both speculative gains and dramatic losses within a small time frame. As a result of being triggered, circuit breakers either stop trading for a small amount of time or close trading early in order to allow accurate information to flow amongst market makers and for institutional traders to assess their positions and make rational decisions.

469. What makes the center of Ice Cubes white ?

As the water freezes, it wants to form a regular crystalline structure (ice). That means impurities like oxygen and other dissolved gasses are pushed away from the crystallization front into the remaining liquid. This means that the last parts of the ice cube to crystallize end up with most of the impurities. If you’ll take a look at your photo of the ice cubes, you’ll note that the parts of the ice cube that were at the bottom of the tray are the milky colored bits. That’s because those were the last parts to freeze. The ice cubes in your tray froze from the top downward, which pushed the contaminant air downward until it was trapped at the bottom and had nowhere else to go.

470. Which is the shortest war ever fought?

The war between Zanzibar (presently part of Tanzania) and the imperial British is the shortest war ever fought. It lasted for about 40 minutes. The immediate cause was the ascension of new sultan who was not ready to cooperate with the imperial power, thus British gave him an ultimatum to surrender which he rejected. In the ensuing battle their defense failed pathetically before the mighty royal navy.

471. What Is Photosynthesis?

Photosynthesis is the process used by plants, algae and certain bacteria to harness energy from sunlight into chemical energy. Oxygenic photosynthesis functions as a counterbalance to respiration; it takes in the carbon dioxide produced by all breathing organisms and reintroduces oxygen into the atmosphere.

472. What is the fastest fighter jet in the world?

The MiG-25 was also the fastest plane ever offered for fun flights by MiGFlug – it was mainly used for Edge of Space flights. Number 3: Lockheed YF-12. This jet was an American interceptor prototype with a top speed of mach 3.35. It looked almost like the SR-71 Blackbird and featured three Air-to-Air missiles.

474. How are bubbles formed in boiling water?

At room temperature, there is always some air dissolved in water. The colder the water, the more air is dissolved. Air becomes less soluble in water as the temperature rises. When the water boils the air is released in the form of bubbles. Two thousand years ago, an attempt was made to use the power of steam with Heron's ball, but the great breakthrough came only with the steam engines. The steam engine improved by James Watt is the most well-known. A little later the steam engines were used to drive locomotives and paddle steamers – the modern steam turbines followed later.

475. Can Rainbows be full circles?

Yes! Rainbows can be full circles. However, the observer normally sees only an arc formed by illuminated droplets above the ground, and centred on a line from the sun to the observer's eye.
In a primary rainbow, the arc shows red on the outer part and violet on the inner side. This rainbow is caused by light being refracted when entering a droplet of water, then reflected inside on the back of the droplet and refracted again when leaving it.
In a double rainbow, a second arc is seen outside the primary arc, and has the order of its colours reversed, with red on the inner side of the arc.

477. How do Pay Phones Work ?

Pay phones, or coin phones, are activated by the weight of the coin as it is inserted. The coin activates a pulse, and the pulse starts the dial tone of the phone. Each pay phone is programed with calling rates and fees.
An electronic device monitoring the current rates for local and long-distance calling is installed in the payphone while it is being made. This device also contains information about calling cards and collect call data.
When the dialer attempts to make a call, the phone will calculate the amount of money needed for the call based on the length of time the dialer wants to talk. As the time ends, a voice will request additional money to be deposited to continue the call. If money is not deposited, the phone will automatically disconnect the call when the deposited money runs out.

478. Why pirates cover their one eye ?

Some assume pirates wore eye patches to cover a missing eye or an eye that was wounded in battle, but in fact, an eye patch was more likely to be used to condition the eye so the pirate could fight in the dark.
It takes an average human eye about 25 minutes to fully adapt from bright sunlight to seeing in complete darkness—if a pirate was fighting on deck in the light, then had to go under the deck to fight downstairs where it is usually pretty dark, that would be a long time to go without being able to see.  The eye patch could be used to prepare one eye to see in the dark, so when they would go below deck they could swap over the eye patch from one eye to the other and see with the eye that has already adjusted to low light conditions. This would allow them to instantly in the dark.
