Kathmandu valley is experiencing rapid population growth. Realistic and scientific On the whole study of astrophysics is the key. Long-term exposure to weightlessness leads to a chain-reaction of undesirable physiological adaptations. on planet Earth also need to be confronted. A review of the literature reveals the uncertainty in these boundaries and suggests that "comfort" in artificial gravity depends as well on other aspects of environmental design, beyond the basic rotational parametres. The main cause is considered to be a mistake in the structural calculation model, especially the model for joint parts. When the potential will be sup-, plied to the gas (Argon) it will ionize and repel the radiations by its induced magnetic, the acceptable radiation dosage.
