Located in Germany, The Stuttgart City Library is the public library which comprises of the central library, 17 city district libraries, and two bookmobiles. For all those who don’t know, back in 2013, it received the national award as Library of the Year in the country.
The Stadtbibliothek Stuttgart library’s new building features a simple cube-like design and a minimalist white interior, which opened its doors in 2011. It has about 11,500 meters of floor space and all sides are equally 45 meters in length just like a cube. The library stands tall at 40 meters with 9 floors.
आँखों से छलकती ख़ुशियाँ जब,
पीछे छुपे ग़म को ढक लेतीं हैं ….
धूप-छांव, धुँध-धुआँ और
बे-वजह मुस्कुराहट भरी
रिश्वतों के पीछे.
ख़ुशियों ….के जन्मदिन…के
कुछ पल जश्न से मना लेते हैं…..
जश्न तो हम आज भी मनाते हैं.
कुछ भूले बिसरे नज़्म गुनगुनाते हैं.
एक आदत थी तुम्हे देखने की बजम में.
पर जश्न-ए-ज़िंदगी हार गई मौत से .
The moon might now be home to thousands of planet Earth’s most indestructible animals.
Tardigrades – often called water bears – are creatures under a millimetre long that can survive being heated to 150C and frozen to almost absolute zero.
They were travelling on an Israeli spacecraft that crash-landed on the moon in April.
And the co-founder of the organisation that put them there thinks they’re almost definitely still alive.
The water bears had been dehydrated to place them in suspended animation and then encased in artificial amber.
“We believe the chances of survival for the tardigrades… are extremely high,” Arch Mission Foundation boss Nova Spivack said.
