Countries With the Highest Suicide Rates
Here is a list of 10 countries with the highest suicide rates which includes male, female, suicide of mysterious reasons and suicide for reasons that can be reckoned with.
Suicide in Kazakhstan is one of the biggest newsflash unfortunate events that occur. Kazakhstan holds tenth position among the countries with the highest suicide rates in the world. It is reported that around 86 teenager under the age of 18 has committed suicide over a period of 5 months in Kazakhstan . Well most of these cases could be traced back to common issues such as failure in examinations and not being strong enough to face the embarrassment of the people. Failure in general however, isn’t the end of the world, somebody would only fail if they stop trying. Other related incidences that lead to suicide would include: Extreme loneliness,conflict at home and school etc.
According to reports from Nepali Police,around 965 people kill them self due to poverty,tradegy and other reasons.Turning it into on of those countries with the highest suicide rates. Police data of Nepal also reported that more than 4000 people commit suicide each year and majority fall under the categories of Natural disaster related fears or grievances while the rest may fall under reasons of poverty as well.
Within a period of 5 years, Tanzania has the highest suicide rates and has seen the death of 3420 incidences of suicide consisting of majority in men and women and minority occupied in the numbers of minors below the age of 18 years old. Some notable reasons behind these suicides traces back to young girls and social problems they face on a daily basis of course inflicting stress of levels that they cannot take anymore and due to incurable diseases that one would choose not to live with such as HIV/AIDS etc.
With Mozambique also being one of the poorest and under-developed in Africa which means that they are bound to encounter a series of issues and life lowering things that contribute to their eventual resorting of suicide. The country has one of the highest suicide rates in the world. It is number one suicide Nation in Africa.Suicide in Mozambique isn’t an uncommon thing that could happen.
It has also been noted that the rate of suicide in Lithuania is twice as high in rural areas. The common reason for most suicides is due to peoples circumstances example : alcoholism, alcohol abuse, drug consumption of dosages that the body is unable to handle, therefore affecting their overall mindset and with an overload of their situations and circumstances that somebody would think off at any particular moment, may be enough to drive somebody to an early death.
Sri Lanka experiences one of the highest suicide rates in the world and not for the cliché reasons as mentioned above. 4000 people a year kill themselves. Besides financial issues, there are also several factors that can contribute to one’s death or suicide in Sri Lanka and that once again brings us back to the Indian traditions, gang pressure, not being educated enough to get a skilled job which again cycles back to financial issues and problems being one of the prominent and most common reasons for why Sri Lankans would take their lives.
South Koreans seem to be more of the intelligent, high profiled, educated and successful people as a difference who are prone to killing themselves or simply retreating to other parts from their home town, thinking they would be escaping their troubles without realizing their problems are to haunt them where ever they are in the world. This can be considered as the ‘not-so intelligent’ part of South Koreans. Death and suicide is a very serious thing and shouldn’t be taken lightly, nor is it something that you can laugh about, however comically the people of South Korea who end up taking their lives are businessmen who are unhappy about their businesses and how it is doing which is a very silly reason for somebody to end life for, forgetting what it took to reach that point of success in the first place.
According to sources around 25000 people take their life.Depression and economic crisis is generally more than enough for the average Japanese man or women to take their lives.An economic crisis situation would be the worst thing a Japanese businessmen could suffer as most of the world relies on Asian manufactured products and their production etc., it is almost as though Japan is highly reliant on the business of other countries in order for them to run sustain ably.
Guyana is number one on the list of countries with the highest suicide rates simply because it’s become world knowledge that the people of this Country die like flies. Guyana holds the highest suicide rates in the world for many of the common reasons mentioned and more especially for some bizarre reasons as well. Guyana people are faced with depression, rape, poverty, chronic or incurable diseases or illnesses, lack of skilled education,unemployment, civil war every now and then, family and social related issues, unhappiness with one self and more especially mental illnesses being a common thing among st locals , the most shocking reason which tops everything discussed thus far at why the rate of suicide is so high in above countries is that the suicide rate of Guyana has sky rocketed due to acts of witchcraft.

NASA was started in 1958 as a part of the United States government. NASA is in charge of U.S. science and technology that has to do with airplanes or space. NASA does a lot of different things. NASA works to make air travel faster and safer.
NASA does a lot of different things. NASA makes satellites. The satellites help scientists learn more about Earth. NASA sends probes out into space. NASA scientists study things in the solar system, and even farther away.
A new program will send humans to explore asteroids, Mars and beyond. People at NASA work on ways to make air travel better for everyone on Earth, too.
If movies about space have taught us anything, it’s that no one can hear you scream. If you get lost in space, nobody’s going to find you. Unless you’re a spacecraft with a direct link to NASA. Then, there is hope for you yet.
STEREO-B, from the Solar and Terrestrial Relations Observatory mission, went missing on October 1, 2014 after losing contact with the team back on Earth. However, on Sunday night, scientists were able to reestablish contact, after 22 months of searching, when the Deep Space Network (NASA’s tool for tracking space missions) was able to lock on to the signal.
In October 2006, STEREO-B and its partner STEREO-A embarked on a two-year-long mission to provide measurements of the sun’s flow of energy to Earth. One was slightly inside Earth’s orbit, and one was outside, allowing scientists to measure energy from multiple angles and eventually, the far side of the sun for the first time.
However, the team ran into a problem. One of the spacecraft was about to drift to the opposite side of the sun from Earth, so there was going to be a three-month period during which communication would be impossible. Since the spacecraft were only designed to be in space for two years, this development was overlooked at the time of the launch.
“The sun emits strongly in nearly every wavelength, making it the biggest source of noise in the sky,” said Dan Ossing, mission operations manager for the STEREO mission.“Most deep space missions only have to deal with sun interference for a day or so, but for each of the STEREO spacecraft, this period lasted nearly four months.”
Because the spacecraft was designed to reset after 72 hours without contact, the team decided to test it to make sure it could reestablish a signal with Earth durimg this reset period. The scientists figured it would turn itself back on.
The team received a weak signal after the first reset, and that was the last time they heard from STEREO-B. Until this week, when the Deep Space Network established a link with STEREO-B’s signal.
In a report from December 2015, scientists hypothesized that the tests went awry because the sensor that tells the spacecraft how fast it’s rotating failed, sending it spinning out of control. Meanwhile, the spacecraft’s battery was powered by solar panels, which weren’t able to get energy to power it up.
Since communications were lost, scientists have been using the network to check for STEREO-B, spacing out three three-hour blocks each week to search for it. This was a tough task, considering scientists had no idea where the spacecraft was.
But the newly located STEREO-B isn’t out of danger just yet. The STEREO team will plan further recovery processes to ensure that the spacecraft is working properly. The team has already spent several hours testing its vitals before powering it down to save battery.
It’s a process that might take years. In 2019, the team will be able to use Hubble to see it and test its rate of spin.
So I guess STEREO-B got its happily ever after, at least for now. It’s still sad to think about it floating in space, spinning out of control, hoping its friends back on Earth will find it. Although that could just be us (definitely us).

In this twenty first century we people believe on science,its invention and facts proved by the scientist and researchers.
But still there are the questions raised by seeing some of the things.We can find its two sides. In one side it is justified by the researchers while in the other hand we come to the comparison and with lots of questions with how and why???
Similar facts of science has been represented by a channel on YouTube that is “BuzzFeedBlue”. The facts listed by BuzzFeed Blue is not only enlightening but entertaining too.
The backbenchers may find this video quiet interesting as it reveals the practicality of science rather than just the normal textbook information.
So dear science lovers here is a treat for you all, especially, the ones who like reading weird facts.Watch the above video, it will definitely amaze you.
