Today:- Kolkata, Nov – Setting up a planetarium in Mauritius, strengthening basic science education in Nepal and upgrading Bangladesh’s science museum are on the agenda of India’s National Council of Science Museums (NCSM) in the coming months to help the neighbours communicate science effectively to their people.

This apart, the Kolkata-headquartered NCSM, which functions as a society under the union ministry of culture, is launching a “big project” in online science communication and grooming science teachers in the country.

“Since we have the expertise in designing and running science centres across India, we will provide the necessary know-how, scientific inputs, equipment and exhibitions to our neighbours to strengthen their science communication as part of our cultural relations exchange, NCSM director general G.S. Rautela told IANS in an interview here.

The Rajiv Gandhi Science Centre (RGSC) in Mauritius was set up by the UPA government in 2004 and now as part of its second phase of upgradation and expansion, a planetarium, possibly the island nation’s first, is being established.

“We are adding a planetarium and new exhibition halls. We have to look for local needs. For example, Mauritius being very close to sea, we would like to do an exhibition on ocean science. They also want an exhibition on space and astronomy because the planetarium is coming up,” explained Rautela about the specifics.

India provided the exhibits for the RGSC at an approximate cost of Rs.5 crore ($756,000). India also helped in the physical installation of these exhibits and in training the technical staff (curators) who would be manning and maintaining these exhibits.

For the second phase, which includes the planetarium and upgradation work, India will provide Rs.10 crore, said Rautela.

For the Himalayan nation of Nepal, the impetus is on improving science education.

“We also have a proposal to do a science centre in Nepal. Their basic need is to improve their science education and so the name of the centre is science learning centre. We want to give them basic sciences which will help children to learn the fundamentals,” Rautela said.

India is investing Rs.5 crore for the project and so far, the conceptualisation and design, everything has been done, said Rautela, adding though it was delayed a bit, the project is “live” and construction will start “shortly”.

  1. Very nice blog, exactly what I needed. I kind of hate that this lap top battery is about dead. Seeing this made me spit up coffee on my laptop. It’s funny I believed I knew what I was talking about before seeing your site but it turns out I am a novis. I think the admin of this blog is really working too much.

  2. Your website has a certain aura about it. Right on with this posting, as you always are. It’s a real shame you do not have a donation button! You should be beyond proud of yourself. My mind set has been forever changed because of you. Precisely what I was searching for.

  5. 關于Ion Magnum技術: 它的作用是加快脂肪代謝而轉化成肌肉。專業設計的微電流模擬大腦到肌肉的正常神經傳導。乙醯膽鹼及ATP(産生能量的物質)都是由神經末梢釋放的。神經元共振導致神經末梢持續不斷的釋放ATP,甚至能達到正常釋放量的500。 Ion Magnum應用的是世界定級的神經生理學技術,它加快脂肪燃燒的速度,增强肌肉收縮,提高基礎代謝率(指的是你靜息狀態下消耗卡路里的速率)。複雜的微電流包含2000次與正常生理過程的相互作用,由此達到人體自然狀態下所不能達到的效果。它可以加快能量的轉化,增强體力和運動能力。 Ion Magnum目前由位於英國的創新科學研究中心開發、製造,該中心是由歐盟提供資金支持的。該設備及其組件均是由英國頂級的科學家手工製作的。該産品有CE標志,CE標志是歐洲共同市場的安全標志。 Ion Magnum基於最新的起搏器技術。

  8. 「 生蛇 」( 醫學名稱是 『帶狀疱疹』Shingles ) 是由水痘病毒引起的疾病。水痘癒合後,病毒在神經細胞潛伏多年,日後隨時重新激活後導致的帶狀皮疹,就是「 生蛇 」。因此,凡感染過水痘的人,都有機會「 生蛇 」。病發時,身體某一部位會感到內疼或劇痛,通常是臉或背部及腰部的一側;這時由於病毒從脊髓處沿其中華一條神經擴散到身體以及去到連接的皮膚表面,形成紅疹及小水疱。帶狀疱疹疫苗Zostavax康栢苗 (蛇針)能助減低「 生蛇 」的機會,有效預防: 「 生蛇 」( 帶狀疱疹 ) 成效高達 70% 「 生蛇 」的後遺神經痛:即使紅疹痊癒,神經痛還可以持續數月或數年。年紀越大,持續有後遺 神經痛風險越高 「 生蛇 」引起的急性及長期痛症 不適用人士: 曾對疫苗成分包括明膠( Gelatin ) 及紐奧黴 ( Neomycin ) 有過敏性休克反應的人士 有原發及繼發性免疫系統問題的病患者,或正服用抑鬱免疫系統藥物(如高劑量膽固醇)的病人 患有肺結核,正發病及未經治療人士 孕婦

  9. 用CO2激光完美的波長與熱作用比例,強大的熱作用可以使陰道粘膜中的膠原纖維、彈性纖維、網狀纖維及有機基質大量增生重塑;CO2的微脈管作用原理使陰道血管重建,血流量增加,細胞功能活躍,進而使陰道緊緻,分泌作用增強、敏感度提高,使陰道恢復年輕、健康狀態。

  10. Although I have shown this blog with many people, it looks to me like very few people are able to understand how important this really is. How big is your team, hope you don’t mind me inquiring. I simply have to tell you that your articles are really awesome. I will bookmark this page. I am super impressed! If you ever began a gang, I would be first in line.
