Facts about the snow leopard

Massive stamina

Snow leopard can drag more than four times the body weight. Their diet comprises large animals like Himalayan tahr, Horse, camel etc. Due to its habitat in harsh cold climate, the bounty is safer for consumption for the longer period of time.

Home range

The home range of snow leopard can be the more than12 square kilometer.  The snow leopard is extremely territorial and defends the home range. The present allocated area is not suitable for proliferation of snow leopard population.

Have large nasal cavity

This is essential to make the air warm while inhaling in cold climate. The extremely cold air in the higher elevation needs to make warm for survival.


During summer when the temperature drops snow leopard venture in higher elevation. During winter when there is extreme cold snow leopard migrate in lower elevation.

Life Span

The lifespan of the captive snow leopard is found to be 21 years. The lifespan of the wild snow leopard is less than the captive. Due to their extremely elusive nature, it is difficult to estimate the precise lifespan in wild.


Snow leopard prefers the broken terrain; the rocky area the agile body of snow leopard facilitates the movement.


Snow leopard lives alone in wild except during mating season. It is generally observed that the pair hunts in the couple during mating season.

This ideology predicts that property should be handled by the government and need to abolish the private property. Establishing the law and order followed by equality can make the economy of country prosperous.
Communism theory was based on the book by Charles Darwin named origin of species. The book predicts that human beings are the animals and are the by-product of long-term evolution over the thousands of years. Due to this, I will like to call Charles Darwin as the father of communism.

Metallic Hydrogen: Superconductor Discovery and Skeptics

Hydrogen is the first element of Group 1 of the periodic table and is abundant in nature. They have one proton and one elector. Freezing at 253-degree centigrade hydrogen become liquid and is widely used in Rocket fuel. Under normal atmospheric pressure hydrogen atom pair up to form the hydrogen molecule. The metallic property of the hydrogen is displayed when it loses the electron.
First Hypothesis on Metallic Hydrogen
The scientist named Eugene Wigner and Hillard Bell Huntington, the Princeton physicist hypothesized that massive pressure on the hydrogen turns it into the metal. This was hypothesized in the year 1935 (1). Until now there has not been any successful experiment to test this hypothesis.

Metallic Hydrogen Discovery
The Post-doctorate researcher Dr. Silvera and Ranga P. Dias has published the finding of metallic hydrogen in Journal science. The published journal claims that they have made metallic hydrogen by applying 495 Gigapascals pressure at the temperature -268-degr…
