Entanglement is one of the strangest phenomena predicted by quantum mechanics, the theory that underlies most of modern physics. It says that two particles can be so inextricably connected that the state of one particle can instantly influence the state of the other, no matter how far apart they are.

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away... The unusual spiral galaxy, Messier 66, is located at a distance of about 35 million light-years in the constellation of Leo. Together with Messier 65 and NGC 3628, Messier 66 is the member of the Leo Triplet, a trio of interacting spiral galaxies, part of the larger Messier 66 group. Messier 66 wins in size over its fellow triplets - it is about 100 000 light-years across.

Scouting Profile
        I have completed about 12 Proficiency (Merit) Badges: Cook, Pioneer, Citizen, Games Leader, Sanitation Promoter, Star Man, Ecologist, Soil Conservator, Nutrition Educator, Ambulance Man, Secretary, Camper. (This certainly will not be the end.)

My Experiments:
  • Have done an Arduino program which interfaces with my Linux System and receives infrared signals from a Sony TV remote to control the system.
  • Have created an Arduino sketch that automatically senses the surrounding luminosity using an LDR and adjusts the brightness of the LED. It lights bright when the surrounding is dimmer and vice versa.
  • Have created a blog about Scouting and made a complete UI makeover to make it a responsive site under all device resolutions.
  • Have created a nifty script (Shell) to instantly convert pictures of all formats into the Open Webp format which is 40% lesser in size with the same quality.
  • Am creating a motion sensing web camera, that tracks my gestures to perform tasks in my computer using the Open Computer Vision library (OpenCV)
  • Am practicing Blindfold Speedcubing and One Handed Solving with my Dayan Zhanchi. 
  • Have successfully cracked a WEP Wireless Network with AirCrack-ng tools.
  • Have Reverse-tethered Android Phone to laptop using bluetooth.
  • Have run the Android apps on Chrome using ArChon runtime on linux.
  • Have designed and developed a Material Design web app with AngularJS.

Has a very good collection of artifacts, yet it is still not popular among the people. The National Art Gallery building is itself an artifact, being the oldest in India.
