The Spies who made America independent


Every year on 4th of July, America celebrates its Independence Day. This day is a celebration of receiving independence from the British colonizers. But America would not have been independent, if it wasn’t for the collective efforts of its mass. Amongst the efforts of the people, there are some renowned spies that we get to know of. Read more to find out who they are.
Read More
1) Nathan Hale

Nathan, a Yale graduate, was Americas’ first spy who served in Knowlton’s Rangers. When George Washington’s forces started to gather on Manhattan Islands, Nathan went ahead to gather information behind enemy lines, surveying British fortifications and encampments where he took cover as a schoolmaster.
2) James Armistead

James Armistead was a Virginia born bondsman who began his service by transporting intelligence reports across enemy lines. Then he went on to become a spy funneling the Redcoats phony information supplied by Lafayette which even included a fraud report on Continental troops.

3) Enoch Crosby

Enoch was a Connecticut born who mistakenly became a spy and willingly went ahead with it. He reported on the movements of British sympathizers.

4) Lewis Costigin:

Lieutenant Costigin began his venture in 1777, when Washington sent him to New Jersey to report on British Movements after the Battle of Trenton. He continued to collect information on everything from troop movements to military shipping for the Continentals openly from the streets.


Without the courageous contribution of these motivated people, America would still live under the colonisation of the British rule.

Strange objects of the universe: Neutron stars

Neutron stars are exactly what they’re named as - a giant ball of neutrons, basically a really, really big nucleus. When a star the size of at least 10 times the mass of the sun dies, it collapses to form the densest, directly observable objects in the whole universe - a neutron star.

Read More

1) Take your best guess as to what the diameter of a neutron star might be. Well, even though they’re the dead remains of a star, they’re still called stars so they must at least be as massive as our sun, right? Wrong. The average diameter of a neutron star is a mere 20 km - the distance between Arsena, Uttar Pradesh and the Taj Mahal.


2) They have a very powerful magnetic field. Take any neutron star and they almost certainly will have a magnetic field at least a few billion times our earth’s own magnetic field. Sometimes these strong magnetic forces can cause the star’s surface to break apart creating extremely powerful blasts of gamma rays that can travel across thousands of light years and often cause discernible changes to the earth's atmosphere.

3) You must have a blender at your home. They spin really fast, right? Well, neutron stars spin just as fast if not much faster. A neutron star called PSR J1748-2446ad spins 43,000 every minute. Just think for a minute - in the vast nothingness of space, there lies a tiny star that spins a hundred times faster than an average ceiling fan and emits radiations so powerful that if occurred in relative proximity to earth, can kill off every single species on our planet. Terrifying.


4) Being extremely dense, the densest of any star in fact, you’d assume that they must possess an astronomical gravitational pull. You’d be right as well. On average the gravitational pull of a neutron star is 2 billion times the earth’s gravity. No wonder they ‘attract’ astrophysicists so much.

Here's what a neutron star (kind of)looks and sounds like.
