  • From Gulab Jamuns to KalamSat

By Knowledge Tribe

On June 22, 2017, NASA launched the Terrier Orion sounding rocket from Virginia, USA. Thousands of miles away, in Chennai, a team of eager young scientists at Space Kidz India, kept their eyes peeled, following the launch closely. Onboard NASA’s rocket, was the world’s smallest satellite, KalamSat– a 64-gram cube named after former Indian President and nuclear scientist, Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam.As the rocket powered into space, these scientists, led by Rifath Sharook, cheered as they watched their achievement take off. The launch was the culmination of a journey that began with (no kidding) a thought of making a satellite of the size of a gulab jamun, an Indian sweetmeat.

  • Gursimran Singh: The ‘Visionary’ Inventor

By Knowledge Tribe

It is often said that eyes are windows to the world. We understand our world, its richness, its exquisite sights, the threats around us etc with our eyes. Now, imagine this; a world of darkness, a perpetual fog where you can see little or nothing at all. While this might be a terrifying thought for some of us, this is the reality for a staggeringly large amount of people. According to recent estimates, 36 million of the world’s population are blind and 217 million have moderate to severe vision impairment. They do love reading but suffer from a limited set of resources available in Braille. A newspaper made in Braille comes out once every fortnight. What about those who want to ‘read’ the newspaper every day?

Well, that’s where Gursimran Singh comes in.

By Knowledge Tribe

What comes to your mind when you think of Korea? Kim Jong-un? Kimchi? Gangnam style? What else?

With that in mind, here’s a few things you should know about the Korean Peninsula.

  • Sunil Chhetri: Captain Fantastic

By Knowledge Tribe

The man of the hour, the “bhai” of Indian football, Captain Fantastic. Anything said about football legend Sunil Chhetri would not come close to the actual legacy the man beholds and propels upwards each passing day. Every Indian with access to the internet or television is no stranger to the man’s charisma and enigmatic skills. The captain who filled an entire stadium with just a video. Not many football players have that kind of accolade to their names. Yet, how many of us know the complete story of the man who managed to breathe back life into a game dying of negligence and ignorance in a disinterested nation? Safe to say, not many. So let’s take a peek into our captain’s life and see what led him to where he is right now.

By Knowledge Tribe

We hear of couples getting together to participate in a lot of activities together. I am sure you have been part of these yourself, at least once in your life.
