• Coromandel Ebony or East Indian Ebony (Diospyros
melanoxylon) is a species of flowering tree in the
family Ebenaceae that is native to India and Sri
Lanka and that has a hard, dry bark. Its common
name derives from Coromandel, the southeastern
coast of India.
• What does Coromandel Ebony go into making?
• What is being described here?
• When X is consumed, it enters the bloodstream and causes
the pituitary gland in the brain to block the creation of
vasopressin. Without this chemical, the kidneys send water
directly to the bladder instead of reabsorbing it into the
body. This is why frequent trips to the bathroom are
required after consuming X.
• Morning after, the body need to be rehydrated desperately.
The body’s organs try to make up for their own water loss
by stealing water from the brain, causing the brain to
contract and pull on the membranes that connect it to the
• Nicknames include "frozen smoke", "solid smoke", "solid air"
or "blue smoke" owing to its translucent nature and the
way light scatters in the material.
• Lightest material ever.
• What is it?
• X purchased a stereo system and was disappointed
with its performance. This led him to research the
importance of reverberant (indirect) sound on
perceived audio quality.
• Valued at $ 2.28 billion, the majority of the firm's
share was donated to Massachusetts Institute of
Technology in 2011 by X for scope of better research.
• This company has a reputation for being particularly
protective of its patents and trademarks, and very
defensive of its brand.
• Which company?
• David Saltzberg is a Professor of Physics and Astronomy at
the University of California, Los Angeles.
• He received a Sloan Fellowship, NSF Career Award, and
Department of Energy Outstanding Junior Investigator Award
while an assistant professor.
• Saltzberg earned a bachelors degree in physics in 1989
from Princeton University and a Ph.D. in physics from
the University of Chicago in 1994. From 1995-97 he worked
at CERN in Switzerland.
• He now does something very very different…
• What does he do?
He is the technical director of Big Bang
Theory. He adds complex formulae to
whiteboards on the set.
• First issued on Aug 28 1845.
• It is the oldest continuously published monthly magazine in
the United States.
• Many famous scientists, including Albert Einstein, have
contributed articles in the past.
• What’s the name?
• By name I mean I want the exact name….
• This word comes from Arabic, which
originally meant a very fine powder of
Antimony used as eye makeup. It conveyed
the idea of something very fine and the
Arab alchemists therefore used this term
to any powder obtained by
sublimation, and thus to all compounds
obtained through distillation process. What
• X is the registered trademark for a para-aramid synthetic
fiber, related to other aramids such
as Nomex and Technora. Developed at DuPont in 1965, this
high strength material was first commercially used in the
early 1970s as a replacement for steel in racing tires.
• Invented by Polish-American chemist Stephanie Kwolek.
• X became the Director of a particular department
of Red Cross.
• Also, promptly after the World War I started, X
attempted to donate gold Nobel Prize medals to
the war effort but the French National
Bank refused to accept them.

• Closely involved with the Manhattan Project.

the 1952 Ivy Mike nuclear test was named Y, in
honour of X's contributions to the scientific
• Even has the sixth state of matter, which is highly
short lived, named after him.
• The quote "logarithmic plots are a device of the devil" is
attributed to X.
• X invented an instrument generally consisting of a
constantly unwinding roll of paper, anchored to a fixed
place, and a pendulum or magnet suspended with a marking
device above the roll – to record even a sensitive motion. X
chose to use the term "magnitude" to describe the quantity
being measured because of his early interest in astronomy;
stargazers use the word to describe the brightness of stars.
Gutenberg suggested that the scale be logarithmic, so that a
7 would be ten times stronger than a 6, a hundred times
stronger than a 5, and a thousand times stronger than a 4.
• For his work on the transatlantic telegraph project he
was knighted by Queen Victoria, becoming Sir William
Thomson. He had extensive maritime interests and was most
noted for his work on the mariner's compass, which had
previously been limited in reliability.
• How do we know him more commonly?

by X's accomplishments to write the
