I watched at documentary on TV1 while having lunch at a stall this afternoon.
I think is around 12.30 pm today.. (a replay perhaps.)
The documentary is about the SUN , its magnetic field affect on Earth,the sun spot,
the flare.. and everything from the SUN compared to the moon..
And how did they prove the magnetic related to the sun spot.
Plus an experiment to calculate the speed of the magnetic flare to travel and reach Earth
within 12hour .. why seeing from side and not from the front could easily estimated the speed.
( He is spraying water to the glass.. and seeing it from the side.. )
The way they narrated the story to make it interesting and inter-related between one sentence to
next sentence is just amazing..
for a good 5minute, I was staring at the TV screen.. until it finish the presentation:).
Then come the interesting part, the interview with the scientist himself, regarding his theory
and also the un-proven hypothesis and all.. and “western scientist” ,
one was based at NASA labs, and also one from another private research center.
then it got my mind, where did all our local scientist journal had gone to ?
The media love to share “Talk with celebrities”.. bla..bla.. sort of entertainment.
Is there no local scientist is doing work and to be highlighted ?
Non-commercial film ? as such this one “National Geographic”..
Then someone replied with these ..
“Oh.. our researcher way too busy with politician , predicting where its suppose to go to..in politic arenas..”
the best brain.. the most popular blog in malaysia..
either talk about politic or just merely about artist..and also about “How to become Internet Millionaire”
Helloo… there are scientist the past that would sacrifices and dedicated their life to research effort.
Take whatever field you want.. Benjamin Franklin, Wright Brothers, Alexander Graham Bell..
which is without their piece to ‘think’ and ‘discover’ thing.. our world would never become like today.
.. and yet we’re just stuck with never-ending politic plot ? for centuries ? hahaha..
now I feel like to laugh at myself..
where did all the elders and gone to spending their precious life last few decades ?
Take a look at Korea.. how long it take to be a master in plastic cosmetic surgery advance tech..?
or Japan.. how long did they recover from the WWII lost bit atomic bomb at “Hiroshima” and “Nagasaki” ?
Or even closer.. take a look at Singapore .. lah.
not the same day we got to “Independence” until the split from “September 1963“?
Let me ask again..
“what and why did our best brainer did NOT really take advantage after that time ?”
which I doubt the answer as the “Singapore best’s brainer is just way too good”.
the more reasonable would be .. we’re just too busy into something not worth pursuing..
neither for personal pride nor for the nation ..let alone the religious glory..
Hmm.. back to research..
we could possible setup private research fund and do it our way..
don’t really have to wait for the government to fund and all.. which available under the MATRADE and many other Research depth..
the point is.. it is not CAN or NOT.. but just the matter of “Want to do it”.. or otherwise …
p/s: One Leader good qualities are having very determined “will-power”…
and the “never give up … no matter hopeless”‘s spirit..
