  18. 18. Originally theorised by Frank Wilczek, X was said to be impossible in equilibrium states. However, Norman Yao gave a blueprint to make X in non-equilibrium states. Thus, two separate teams led by Mikhail Lukin and Christopher Monroe made X separately by using Ytterbium ions and Nitrogen vacancy diamonds respectively. X breaks time translational symmetry and repeats not just over space (like a crystal), but also over time. X is seen as a new state of matter now. What is X called? 2.1
  19. 19. Answer 2.1 Time Crystals
  20. 20. List of annual dosage of ionising radiation- •Fukushima natives- 10,000 microsieverts •US Radiation worker- 50,000 microsieverts •Astronaut- 100,000 microsieverts •X- 160,000 microsieverts X are a type of people who receive the most radiation dosage on an average in the world. This is due to bio absorption of radioactive Polonium and Lead by something they regularly consume. The thing they consume can be so dangerous that separate rooms are mandated by law in many places for its consumption. Who are X? 2.2
  21. 21. Answer 2.2 X are regular smokers
  22. 22. This compound with IUPAC name (RS)-Propan-2-yl methylphosphonofluoridate has been infamous throughout history as a ‘weapon of mass destruction’ and is 26 times more lethal than cyanide. It is a nerve agent, and attacks the nervous system by interfering with the degradation of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine at neuromuscular junctions. It was used in Iraq during Iran- Iraq war, and has very recently been used by rebels in Syria. In 1995, an attack using this chemical occurred in a Tokyo subway station, killing 12. What is this chemical commonly called? 2.3
  23. 23. Answer 2.3 Sarin
  24. 24. X is a glycoprotein found in the saliva of vampire bats. It is composed of 411 amino acids, AND functions as an anticoagulant, thus keeping the blood of the bitten victim from clotting while the bat is drinking. The anticoagulant may be useful as a treatment for strokes and heart attacks. It may also be used as a blood thinner for the prevention of heart attacks. Identify X. 2.4
  25. 25. Answer 2.4 Draculin
  26. 26. Albert and X, by exchanging calculations and letters, theorised this particle class. Paul then named it after X to honour him. Peter theorized a field responsible for mass, and the particle, since it belonged to X's said particle class, was named after both Peter and X. This sparked a controversy as X's name's part was written in lowercase, unlike Peter, which raised questions of racism in science. Name X, or X's particle class which we are describing. 2.5
  27. 27. Answer 2.5 Satyendra Nath Bose or Boson
  28. 28. “We live submerged at the bottom of an ocean of the element of air, which by unquestionable experiments is known to have weight” These words were a part of a letter written by a prominent 17th century scientist X in 1644 to his friend, a cardinal and a scientist in Rome. Who is X? 2.6

  70. 70. During the 1940 Blitzkrieg, the Luftwaffe often struck under the cover of darkness. In order to make it more difficult for the German planes to hit targets, the British government issued citywide blackouts. The Royal Air Force was able to repel the German fighters in part because of the development of a new, secret radar technology. To keep the truth under wraps, the Ministry of Information popularized a science myth. What famous science myth are we talking about? 6.1
  71. 71. Answer 6.1 Carrots/ Vitamin A in carrots improve eyesight
  72. 72. This phenomenon is observed when a charged particle travels faster than the phase velocity of light in a dielectric medium. Jawaharlal Nehru observed this phenomenon in India’s first nuclear reactor, and, mesmerized by it, named the reactor ‘Apsara’. Neil DeGrasse Tyson called it 'the Sonic Boom of light'. What is the effect behind the said phenomenon? 6.2
  73. 73. Cherenkov radiation answer 6.2
  74. 74. Hennig Brand did this in 1669- Brand's process originally involved letting urine stand for days until it gave off a terrible smell. Then he boiled it down to a paste, heated this paste to a high temperature, and led the vapours through water, where he hoped they would condense to gold. Instead, he obtained a white, waxy substance that glowed in the dark. What did he synthesize for the first time? 6.3
  75. 75. Answer 6.3
  76. 76. X was an Austrian-Swedish scientist who received many awards and honors late in her life, but she did not share in the 1944 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for nuclear fission that was awarded exclusively to her long-time collaborator Otto Hahn. In the 1990s, the records of the committee that decided on that prize were opened. Based on this information, several scientists and journalists have called her exclusion "unjust", and X has received a flurry of posthumous honors, including the naming of chemical element 109 after her in 1997. Identify X. 6.4
  77. 77. Lise Meitner Answer 6.4
  78. 78. Zbtb7, originally named X, is a gene that may act as a master switch for cancer, and is responsible for the proliferation of cancer throughout surrounding cells. The original name X stood for “POK erythroid myeloid ontogenic factor". The X Company, not wanting the bad press inherent with its trademark sharing a name with a cancer-causing gene, threatened the center with legal action in December 2005, at which point it was decided to rename it as Zbtb7. Give me X 6.5
  79. 79. Answer 6.5
  80. 80. First named in 1651 in the map Almagestum Novum, this particular sea (8.5°N 31.4°E) is known for a specific bluish tint which sets it apart (due to higher metal content). It has four bays- the Bay of Love, Bay of Roughness, Bay of Harmony and Bay of Honor. On 20 July, 1969, the sea entered history books when these words were transmitted from here- 'The Eagle has landed'. Someone accompanying the person who said these words was commanded to look for 'a large Chinese rabbit, which is easy to spot since he is always standing on his hind feet in the shade of a cinnamon tree'. What is this sea called? 6.6
  81. 81. Sea of Tranquility Answer 6.6
