Google VIDYO Chat


You can now use voice and video capabilities in your Gmail chat (from within Gmail). 

Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

  • Download the Gmail voice and video chat plug-in, quit all open browser windows, and install the plug-in.
  • Sign in to Gmail.
  • In the Chat section of your Gmail, select the contact you want to call. If they have a camera icon next to their name, you can make a voice or video call to them; just click Video & more.

The Best Part – Even if your friend doesn’t have a video camera, you can still make a voice call or a 1-way video call.

Moon as Viewed by ChandraYaan[Distance 311200 Km]


Moon as viewed by Chandrayaan-1 on 4 Nov. 2008  , Distance ~ 311200 Km. from Moon

The first orbit reduction manoeuvre of Chandrayaan-1 spacecraft which is orbiting the moon, was successfully performed on November 9, 2008 , night. As part of that manoeuvre which began at 20:03 IST, the 440 Newton liquid engine of the spacecraft was fired for about 57 seconds. With this, the nearest point of Chandrayaan-1’s orbit (periselene) from the moon’s surface was reduced from 504 km to 200 km while the farthest point (aposelene) remained unchanged at 7,502 km. In this elliptical orbit, Chandrayaan-1 takes about ten and a half hours to circle the moon once.
