Physicists Discovers Gravitional Waves at Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO)
Einstein's General theory of relativity suggested the possibility of gravitational waves , which are produced by accelerating masses and they propagate at the speed of light in the space time continuum.
Physicists at LIGO observed the warping of space-time generated by the collision of two black holes more than a billion light-years from Earth.

Hubble space telescope to retire?
The 25 year old reflecting type telescope had gone through a total of five service missions, each leaving the telescope in better shape than before.Then why cant it be repaired again? ...With the retirement of NASA's Space Shuttle fleet in 2011,we lost our ability to upgrade or fix the HST, which will inevitably lead to the loss of our most spectacular window to the heavens by around 2020s. By then, the next generation Webb Space Telescope may be out there.

Does the sun have a surface?
What we see as the opaque surface is just nothing but a layer known as photosphere which is several hundred kilometres deep consisting of neon in plasma state(often referred to as the forth state of matter). 
It is believed that around 4800 km beneath, there exist an iron alloy transitional layer which may be the place from where the solar winds, electrically charged coronal loops originate.

So the sun may not be simply a sphere of fire or hydrogen but there may be a  hard and rigid ferrite surface beneath.

 Ever seen a bright circle surrounding a full moon or the sun? This is an optical phenomenon called as the Halo and they are produced by the ice crystals in cirrostratus clouds high above our head.The ice crystals in these clouds acts as prisms and mirrors and thereby they refract and reflect the light simultaneously .

Carbon dioxide can be a boon .
CO2 fertilization effect is the process by which plants become more productive due to the increased CO2 concenteration in the atmosphere.This has been observed decades ago but a recent study of arid regions around the globe shows that  carbon dioxide fertilization effect has infact caused a gradual greening from 1982 to 2010.
See how nature responds to our carelessness!!

Can a plant show periodic motion all by itself?This plant(ground orchid) moves one of it's leaf throughout the night.I have witnessed this and I'm pretty sure this is not because of wind.
Can anyone please give a suitable scientific explanation for this.

Assalamu Alaikum brothers and sisters,
are you aware of the Islamic golden age that lasted for the first 400 years of Abbasid rule, roughly from 750 to 1150 AD.The great inventions and discoveries that occured during this period will mesmerise anyone as it clearly shows how the Europe emerged from the dark ages to their golden age by following the works of Islamic scholars.
The following video will tell us some of those inventions.
This was uploaded by " The Merciful Servant" and all credit goes to him.
Why I posted this is to show how the true ardent believers of those time were able to come up with success by putting their faith on the lord.And I hope we believers can still be the best.

Ever wondered what is there on the surface of Jupiter?
It is an ocean,an ocean of liquid hydrogen.The main source of light down here is the frequent lightnings. The sea is so deep and farther down it is believed that we may find a special form of hydrogen called liquid metallic hydrogen which is never seen on earth.
