Notice Inviting tender for Selling of entry ticket in Science City, Kolkata
National Council of Science Museums (NCSM) has joined the major Science Centre networks of the world like ASTC, ECSITE, ASPAC, NAMES, REDPOP & SAASTEC to celebrate the “International Science Center and Science Museum Day” besides “World Science Day” on 10th November, 2016. It will be celebrated as the first International Science Center and Science Museum Day to build upon the UNESCO’s theme of “Science for Peace and Development”. Open house quiz, sit & draw contest, science drama and cultural dance performance are among the list of programmes.
Science City observed Swachhata Pakhwada on 30/9/16. The programme started with a Swachhata March. Students were dressed up with a special Swachhata costume and performed Swachhata March. Thereafter they participated in the campus cleaning followed by Science Drama on the Environment.
Science City, Kolkata is participating in a Global Experiment from October 1 till October 15 where students from different city schools will make environmental observations, photograph clouds and record sky observation with a GLOBE observer app. This is in partnership with GLOBE (Global Learning and Observations to Benefit the Environment) and NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration), the satellite observations would further be applied in studying the Earth and global environment by the scientists for a global event to be held onNovember 10,2016 on the occasion of the World Science Day for Peace and Development.
The objective is to make a worldwide visualization of cloud coverage that would be an effective tool in activities relating to various sustainable development goals. Clouds are highly variable and predicting their future evolution is one of the major challenges faced by climate scientists.

Journey to Space is a 2015 American 3D documentary Adventure film directed by Mark Krenzien.
NASA’s next era will be its greatest yet. That is the clear “roadmap” painted by Journey to Space. The film absolutely annihilates the perception that the space programme died with the end of the Space Shuttle Programme by showcasing the exciting plans NASA and the space community are working on and the challenges they must overcome to carry out audacious missions such as landing astronauts on Mars and capturing asteroids.
By using extensive interviews with astronauts Chris Ferguson (Commander of the final shuttle mission) and Serena Aunon (a new astronaut chosen for future flights), as well as a brilliant narration by film and television legend Sir Patrick Stewart, Journey to Space gives a sweeping overview of past space accomplishments, current activities and future plans.
Journey to Space puts into historical context the magnificent contributions made by the Space Shuttle programme and its intrepid space pioneers. It uses the most spectacular space footage – including unique views of Earth and operations in space – such as deploying and repairing the Hubble Space Telescope. It then goes on to show how the Shuttle launched and assembled the International Space Station (ISS). Together, these programmes have taught us how to live, build and conduct science in space. The ISS will continue operating in space until 2024, and the film shows how it is building a foundation for the next giant leaps into space.
The film concludes with a fascinating, realistic scenario of how astronauts will actually get to Mars, live there for long duration and then return home after a two-and-a-half-year mission. This includes the new icons of the next chapter of space exploration:
Orion is NASA’s first spacecraft designed to carry humans on long-duration deep space exploration missions throughout the solar system.
Olympus, an inflatable transportation habitat, is an early concept 45- or 50-feet diameter module that would provide astronauts the work area and living space necessary for long-duration missions. Smaller versions have already flown in space and a full-scale version is shown undergoing ground testing.
The Space Launch System (SLS), a new giant rocket, will carry spacecraft, Mars Landers and ascent vehicles to place astronauts on the surface of Mars. SLS will generate over nine million pounds of thrust and will launch hardware into orbit equivalent to the weight of 22 elephants.
Journey to Space will both inspire a new generation of young people to dream of new horizons in space, and engender a new appreciation for the accomplishments of the Space Shuttle Programme among an older generation who came to take it for granted.
