The Hindu Kush
The Hindu Kush

Jeff Schmaltz, MODIS Rapid Response Team, NASA/GSFC

Once used by Alexander the Great in his effort to conquer the known world, the high-altitude passes of the Hindu Kush remain important trade and travel routes. Glaciers and heavy snowfall are ever-present features of these mountains, which rise to 7,692 meters (26,236 feet) in height.

Straddling the borders between Pakistan, Afghanistan, and India, the Hindu Kush is heavily populated. Though the valleys are heavily irrigated, growing crops at such high altitudes and low temperatures is difficult. The residents also have to worry about earthquakes, which are common as the Eurasian and Indo-Australian tectonic plates continue to push against one-another. This constant pressure and grinding create an average of four major (measuring at least 5 on the Richter scale) earthquakes a year.

In this true-color Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) image, the Hindu Kush occupies the lower-left-center of the image. To the left are the relatively lower altitude plains of southern Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. The fertile plains surrounding the northern strands of the Indus River are a deep green at the bottom center of the image (a translucent veil of smog adds a gray tinge to the region). Straddling the mountains north of the Kush are Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan, which butt up against the arid Tarim basin of northwestern China. The Silk Road, the all-important trade route between China and Europe, runs through the Hindu Kush and this basin. The Terra satellite acquired this image on November 28, 2003.

This is the story of a Pakistani Scientist, who is a Mechanical
Engineer from NED and a PHD from Florida Institute of Technology.)

NASA was getting ready to launch a very important Space shuttle. The
scientists and engineers checked And double checked everything to make sure That things are fine.

However, on the day of its launch, something seemed to Be wrong.

The rocket gave all sorts of noise but never Took off even an inch from the ground.

The engineers were puzzled because they could not Figure out the

Finally, there was a Pakistani scientist (the one who Is mentioned
above) he offered the help. NASA people Were desperate by that time and agreed to do Anything.

"Tilt the rocket 45 degrees to the left" said the Pakistani scientist.

The engineers were puzzled but did it anyway. "Bring It back to vertical position" the Pakistani said.

The engineers did so . "Now start the engines" he Said. And surprise,
the rocket took off and flew into Outer space!

Everybody congratulated him and asked him how he knew what to do. He replied -

"It's very simple. This is what we always do with our CD 70 motor bike in Pakistan.
