Mission to Saturn 24.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
The sci-fi blockbuster Oblivion gave us a glimpse of life in 2077 on Titan, Saturn's largest moon, after the Earth was devastated by an extraterrestrial attack. But how far from reality is this? Going by Cassini-Huygens' findings, perhaps it's not too far! Cassini-Huygens is the first unmanned spacecraft to orbit Saturn, a spectacular ringed planet in our Solar System. Launched on October 15, 1997, it set out to discover the planet and its satellites, up-close. In its 20 long years, the spacecraft has revealed many fascinating facts about Saturn, its rings and moons, including some clues about the possibility of life. However, Cassini-Huygens will soon draw a close to its eventful life in September 2017. In the first seven years of its journey, the spacecraft hovered around Venus, flew past Mars, manoeuvred through the asteroid belt and slid past Jupiter, before finally entering Saturn's orbit on July 1, 2004. Its last leg started on April 22, 2017. After sailing past Titan, it will criss-cross Saturn's ...

Solar power sector has bright and shining future 23.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
Two recent events related to India's energy security are worth noting. The first was the joint announcement by the prime ministers of India and Australia that the latter would soon start exporting uranium to India. This would need legislative approval in Australia, but Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull is confident of getting that bipartisan support from his Parliament. It would be the first time that Australia would be exporting uranium to a country that has not signed the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT). India refuses to sign the NPT on principle since it is discriminatory and exempts the big five of the United Nations Security Council from signing. Because of this stance, India suffered nuclear apartheid for almost three decades before the Indo-US civilian nuclear power deal led countries from the Nuclear Suppliers' Group to export nuclear fuel to India. Thus, Australia which has 40% of the world's uranium, signed a nuclear cooperation agreement two years ago with India, facilitating the supply ...

Shrinking population, pending demands mark their woes 22.4.2017 deccanherald.com
Fifty-five acres of land, rotund in shape, replete with green and surrounded by water of river Netravathi throughout the year, makes 'Pavoor Uliya' a perfect island, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Unlike St Mary's Island at Malpe Beach in the neighbouring Udupi district, a popular tourist destination, Uliya (means leftover) is most known for its rather reclusive population of less than 200, living with their demands from several decades. Though close to city by 10 km, there is no proper road connectivity while every other basic amenity like electricity connection and drinking water supply is intact. The solar lamp at the entrance of the island is the only street light with most of them used to cellphone torches and handheld torches to even strut for a distance. As the promises remained on papers, the once-populated island with close to 60 households has come down to 38, with most shifting to safer areas in Mangaluru city and new fangled localities for the sake of their offsprings. Those ...
