[Urdu/Hindi] What is the Size of Our Universe?

How big is our universe? This is one of the fundamental questions of humanity. It is a hard question to answer. But astronomers have made significant progress in the last 100 years to answer it. With James Webb Space Telescope, astronomers are hoping to detect the galaxies that formed soon after the Big Bang. But this is about time. What about space? Please join astrophysicist Salman Hameed in tackling the question of the size of the universe in this Urdu/Hindi science video as part of Kainaati Gup Shup.

[Urdu/Hindi] The Farthest Star in the Universe

Which is the farthest star in the universe? Sometimes astronomers get lucky. Recently astronomers have detected a star names Earendel, whose light started its journey 12.9 billion years ago!! This is on top of recent discoveries about the farthest galaxies ever discovered, only a few hundred million years after the Big Bang. Please join astrophysicist Salman Hameed in exploring how astronomers detected this star and whether it will be a science target for James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) in this Urdu/Hindi science documentary.
