Speaking on the occasion, Satheesh Reddy said the technological capabilities existing in DRDO laboratories for defence applications will be customised to meet the requirements of the human space mission of ISRO.
As ISRO tries to reconnect with Vikram lander, a lunar probe of NASA, which is scheduled to fly-over Vikram lander's landing surface today, will try capturing images of Vikram lander.
As mosquitoes mostly spread dengue virus while feeding on iron deficit blood, researchers suggest consuming iron-rich food if dealing with iron deficiency, anaemia or dengue fever.Dengue is most commonly acquired in urban environments, and the expansion of cities in the tropics has been accompanied by an expansion in dengue infections.
The team is led by Prof. Vikranth Racherla from Department of Mechanical Engineering of the institute.
The material is made from vertically aligned carbon nanotubes, or CNTs -- microscopic filaments of carbon that the team grew on the surface of a chlorine-etched aluminum foil.
IIT-D director V Ramgopal Rao said they were pushing for more industry-sponsored research so that there is a direct benefit for the public.
we (also) have a very high-resolution camera with a large spectral range, says AS Kiran Kumar.
Even as serious attempts are being made by Indian space agency to establish communication link with its moon lander Vikram that crashed on to the lunar surface, a Senior Advisor in ISRO has explained in simple terms the landers planned operations.
It is also reported the American space agency National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) is sending radio signals to Vikram.
In an unprecedented discovery, researchers have found water outside Earth, on an exoplanet - a planet out of our solar system. The search in the space also detected signs of water vapour in the atmosphere and Earth-like temperatures that could potentially support life.The faraway planet - K2-18b is eight times the mass of Earth and known as a super-Earth. The planet was first discovered in 2015 by NASA's Kepler spacecraft. The findings were put forth in a study published in the Journal Nature Astronomy.In pic - An artist's impression released by NASA on September 11, 2019 shows the planet K2-18b, its host star and an accompanying planet.
Scientists for the first time have detected water in the atmosphere of an Earth-like planet orbiting a distant star, evidence that a key ingredient for life exists beyond our solar system, according to a study published on Wednesday.
Of the more than 4,000 exoplanets detected to date, this is the first known to combine a rocky surface and an atmosphere with water.
Various key issues included partnering organizations, dignitaries to be invited for inaugural programme, details of technical sessions, funding possibilities, felicitation of institutions/start-ups were discussed.
Like Vikram, the ISRO too has gone into a silent mode, avoiding the media except for a few brief comments by some officials to select journalists.
The Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) on Tuesday issued a statement that the agency is trying to establish contact with Chandrayaan-2 lander (Vikram), and that the orbiter has located it, giving out the same information its chairman K Sivan revealed on Sunday.In a statement issued this morning Isro said: "Vikram lander has been located by the orbiter of Chandrayaan-2, but no communication with it yet. All possible efforts are being made to establish communication with lander."Attempts to get further clarification on how the agency is planning to establish contact have proved futile, leaving some unanswered questions.
The Bengaluru-headquarterd space agency on Tuesday again confirmed that the lander has been located on the lunar surface by the on-board cameras of the Chandrayaan-2 orbiter which is circling the moon in its intended orbit.
