During this event students got chance to know about cosmology studies from Dr Uday Raj Khanal.  His speech on the topic of cosmology and astronomy gave new insight to the world of astronomy. Also the talk session of Dr Binil Aryal (Head of Central Department of Physics) helped student to know about current condition of physics and astronomy in Nepal. The presentation of Mr Suresh Bhattarai (Chairman of NASO) helped student to know about astronomy, engineering and outreach projects handled by NASO team for promotion and implementation of science and technology. Sabin Gautam (Treasurer of PAS) presented the ideas and activities of Pokhara Astronomical Society. Sudip Vikram Adhikari (Chairman of Beyond Apogee) presented the idea of CAN Satellite which could be easily programmed by school level students too which they termed as Sajilo Satellite.


For recreational and talent exposure purpose many student of department of physics presented their poems related to universe and astronomy. Various posters and quotes of scientific minds could be seen on the premise of the college too. The event was attended by around hundred students and visitors. After 5:00 PM observation session was jointly organized by CDP, NASO and PAS in which visitors got chance to observe the Moon and Venus. Also visitors were informed about the types of telescopes used for the observation.

This event thus helped the student and visitors to know about the astronomy, cosmology, physics study in Nepal and the activities related to these topics done by various organizations for promoting and implementing science in Nepal.

The Global Astronomy Month (GAM) is the largest global celebration of astronomy, celebrated every year in April by organizing different astronomical events like Astro-art, Astro-star party, Astro-poetry, Astro-concert etc. The motto of the GAM is to bring interested people together to encourage participation in programs related to astronomy and astrophysics. The main aim of conducting this event is to bring new opportunities for interested and enthusiastic persons to celebrate the Global Astronomy Month.

Gravity Spy: How you can contribute to LIGO’s discoveries, from the other side of the globe?

LIGO is designed to detect gravitational waves which produces a length change of 10E-18 metres in its 4 km long arm. This also makes it sensitive to a great deal of instrumental and environmental sources of noise. Among these the one that are of most concern are transient, poorly modeled artifacts known by the LIGO community as glitches. Gravity Spy is a program designed to involve citizen scientists in identifying those glitches, which are not ofastrophysical origin. These identified glitches makes a dataset that is used to train a machine learning algorithm to enhance its ability to separate the noise from the gravitational wave signals.



This program was initially launched as a beta version on June of 2016. The full implementation of the program was launched on October of 2016. It has close to 12,000 registered users and has achieved about 3,000,000 different classifications by now. You can signup at the following link and help LIGO find glitches that are already known or even find a new kind of glitch.


You can also get new updates about the gravity spy by following the blog linked below:

Enjoy and happy glitch hunting!

Happy International Women's Day 2018!

International Women's Day has surely made the world to realise the importance of women participation in different decision making level as well as research activities! One of the most interesting discussion these days is how we can involve women in the interplanetary exploration such as Mars Missions as the biology of men and women are completely different!

If you look at the women's participation in education and research (which is very rare activity for anyone working in Nepal with full of challenge!), you find many women persuing their higher studies in medical sector such as botany or zoology, etc. But there are only few people who took challenge to study physics and finish their PhDs. Prof. Dr. Nilam Shrestha Pradhan is one of three three female PhD in Physics currently working in Nepal and holds strong vision to expand the horizon of women in physics in coming days!


Women in Astronomy Nepal (WIAN), an initiative that Ms. Manisha Dwa started at NASO, is currently helping the team of female physicists in Nepal in preparation of the hosting of a regional level meeting around March/April 2019! For more details about WIAN and its activities, visit www.womeninastronomy.org .

Interested to be part of the meeting and new initiative of Women in Physics Nepal? Feel free to contact Prof. Dr. Nilam Shrestha Pradhan, Professor & Head at Department of Physics at Tri-Chandra Multiple Campus, Ghantaghar, Kathmandu.

Lets press for progress, lets empower and encouarge women and support them for their higher studies in physics/astrophysics/astronomy/space!

Wish you all a very happy International Women's Day 2018!
