Abstract: 

 

Over 100 years ago an invention (horseless carriage) totally transformed the way we live, we think and we travel. This horseless carriage which was named afterwards as ‘automobile’, gave birth to a whole new industrial setup. It is these 100 years which transformed crude oil into ‘black gold’, and it is the same 100 years which transformed the earth’s atmosphere into a store house of carbon dioxide, lead, NOxs etc., threatening our future existence on this planet. Since our existence is more important than our transportation and the depletion of fossil fuels is anticipated in the near future, so there is a wave of change in the automotive industry heading towards a zero emission vehicle (ZEV) and alternative fuel vehicles. A vehicle which guarantees safe and emission free transportation is in its inception. This presentation focuses on this change along with new safety standards which are now becoming STD on every new car (in advanced countries).

Sight Seeing into Space-time

Time: 
11:00 am
Venue: 
New Lecture Theater, University of Engineering and Technology (UET), Lahore
Abstract: 

TIME is difficult to define. The dictionary defines TIME as a 'period' and defines a 'period' as 'time. This leads us to nowhere. Time is simply how long we wait (Feynmann). Time is what prevents so many things happening all at once. Can mathematical breakthroughs establish God's extradimensional might? Was there a beginning of time? Could time run backwards? Is the Universe infinite or does it have boundaries? "A Brief History of Time" by the living legend Stephen Hawking, addresses some of these fundamental questions and with us, Muhammad Omar Saleem will share some of his private moments in the exciting voyage through space-time. He will present an outline and review of the book and tell us why reading it was so exciting. He will mention and summarise the basic concepts (such as the anthropic principle, expansion of the universe, man's role in the cosmos, unification and the ultimate nature of matter) that are already there in "A Brief History of Time". He will also read out some select portions from the book.
