  • The first color images of Pluto's atmospheric hazes, returned by NASA's New Horizons spacecraft last week, reveal that the hazes are blue.

  • Most materials swell when warm, and shrink when cool. But some weird materials do the opposite. Although thermal expansion, and the cracking and warping that often result, occurs everyday -- in buildings, electronics, and almost anything else exposed to wide temperature swings -- physicists have trouble explaining why solids behave that way. New research into a material that has negative thermal expansion may lead to a better understanding of why materials change volume with temperature at all.

  • Cigarette smoking and heavy alcohol use cause epigenetic changes to DNA that reflect accelerated biological aging in distinct, measurable ways, according to research. The researchers estimated biological age using a previously validated epigenetic "clock" , calculated the difference between biological age and chronological age, and assessed the relationship between tobacco and alcohol use and premature aging.

What is e-Arumbu?

e-Arumbu is an informational website which is developed by the Science Union of Jaffna,Vembadi Girls' High School.

How often do you launch this?

We launch this once a year during the months October and November.The science day of the school is celebrated during this period.This is also a part of the science day.

What made you to start this continuous process?

We annually release a magazine called "Arumbu".However it doesn't reach many people as the number of copies are limited for a certain extent.It made us to think something globally and technologically.We also had the thought to produce a talented web developing team every year.

Do you publish the articles of the outsiders?

At the moment,No.  However We will consider this in the near future.
