To what extent, the discovery of so called "Neutrino Oscillation"has potential to change our understanding of the fundamental particles of the nature? Discuss.

Hint The difference of calculation in theoretical and experimental results led to discovery of neutrino; when it was found that some of the solar neutrinos (which are all electron-neutrinos) were transforming themselves to other forms of neutrinos, and thus escaping ..

What are the findings of the NASA study on the Arctic permafrost?

Permafrost is soil that has remained frozen for years or centuries under topsoil. It contains carbon-rich organic material, such as leaves, that froze without decaying. As rising Arctic air temperatures cause permafrost to thaw, the organic material decomposes and releases ..

How the extremely high length-to-diameter ratio of Carbon Nanotubes makes them special material? Assess their potential applications in public health sector.

Carbon Nanotubes (CNTs) are allotropes of carbon with a cylindrical nanostructure.  Carbon nanotubes have varied structures, differing in length, thickness, and number of layers. The characteristics of nanotubes can be different depending on how the graphene sheet has rolled up to form the tube. This ..
