NASA's Opportunity Rover remains unreachable due to Mars dust storm 16.8.2018 DNA: Opinion
NASA has reportedly not been able to establish contact with the Opportunity Rover - which has been exploring Mars for 14 years - for over two months, due to a global dust storm engulfing the red planet. However, the US space agency has not given up on trying to make contact with the robotic rover. The rover had to undergo an emergency shutdown after the dust storm prevented it from powering itself through its solar panels. Scientists from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory have been attempting to send Opportunity a message command three times a week since then. The last time NASA heard from Opportunity was June 10. "A variety of scientists think early to mid-September might be a time when the skies clear enough that it could recharge," Andrew Good, Mars and Mars technology media relations specialist, told 'Inverse'. The planet-encircling dust storm on Mars is gradually settling. Dust-lifting sites have decreased and surface features are starting to emerge. There are indications that the atmospheric opacity ...

In his last Independence Day speech before Lok Sabha elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today presented a picture of rising India under his government, contrasting it with what he termed as "policy paralysis" under the UPA, as he announced the launch date of his signature healthcare scheme covering 50 crore Indians.  Addressing the nation from the ramparts of Red Fort on the 72nd Independence Day, his fifth speech after the NDA came to power in 2014, Modi also announced the permanent commissioning of women in the armed forces and a plan to send Indian astronauts into space by 2022. "When 125 crore people move towards achieving a goal, there is nothing that cannot happen. In 2014, the people of the country did not just stop at forming the government. They moved together towards nation-building a nd are continuing to do so," he said. However, the main opposition party Congress seemed unimpressed with PM Modi's speech. Congress national spokesperson Randeep Surjewala termed the speech shallow. He was ...

Gujarat: Equipment quality, enrolling farmers risks for KUSUM scheme 14.8.2018 DNA: Mumbai
Quality of solar pumps and getting farmers on board are the two key risks for the success of the net-metered solar pumps, according to an analysis by Greenpeace India, Gujarat Energy Research and Management Institute (GERMI) and IWMI-Tata Water Policy Program. The analysis, which was released at a conference earlier this week, showed that India could surpass its solar power target of 100 GW by 2022 if solar pumps were to replace traditional water pumps in farms. It said that while the 60 GW target for large-scale solar power projects is on track, the 40 GW target for roof-top solar is still to gather momentum, and as of March, only 2.4 GW roof-top capacity had been installed. While talking about several benefits the solar pumps could provide, the analysis identified the quality of solar pumps and maintenance as a key potential risk for the success of net-metered solar pumps. Incidentally, the central government had recently launched KUSUM (Kisan Urja Suraksha evam Utthan Mahaabhiyan) scheme to promote ...

From lynching incidents to Rahul hug: Full transcript of PM Modi's interview 12.8.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
Here is the full transcript of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s interview with ANI ANI: You have mentioned in previous interviews that the methodology of computing job numbers is outdated and the true reflection is contrary to the present data available. What in your opinion is the present employment scenario in India and how will you increase employment opportunities? Prime Minister: I have already given a detailed reply in the Lok Sabha during the debate on No Confidence Motion. In short, the point which needs to be understood is that: When economy is growing at a faster pace, in fact fastest among the major economies, how will the jobs market not expand? When investment into and the pace of execution of infrastructure projects like making roads, laying down rail lines, setting up power generation including solar parks and transmission lines is at all-time high, how come the jobs will not be created. Similarly, if there is significant growth in sales of commercial vehicles and passenger vehicles, does it ...

NASA postpones Parker Solar Probe mission to Sunday morning after 'a condition' 11.8.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
NASA on Saturday scrubbed the Parker Solar Probe, announcing that the launch team will attempt the mission on Sunday morning. The first ever spacecraft to fly directly toward the Sun was poised to blast off today, on a mission to plunge into our star's sizzling atmosphere and unlock the mysteries of the centre of the solar system. NASA's car-sized, USD 1.5 billion Parker Solar Probe is scheduled to launch on a Delta IV Heavy rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida now on Sunday morning. The time has not been specified as yet. By coming closer to the Sun than any spacecraft in history, the unmanned probe's main goal is to unveil the secrets of the corona, the unusual atmosphere around the Sun. "We are going to be in an area that is so exciting, where solar wind -- we believe -- will be accelerating," said NASA planetary science division director Jim Green. "Where we see huge magnetic fields that are passing by us, as coronal mass ejections make their way out into the solar system." Not only is the corona ...

NASA counts down to the launch of first spacecraft which will touch the 'Sun' 10.8.2018 DNA: Popular News
NASA counted down today to the launch of a USD 1.5 billion spacecraft that aims to plunge into the Sun's sizzling atmosphere and become humanity's first mission to explore a star. The car-sized Parker Solar Probe is scheduled to blast off on a Delta IV Heavy rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida early tomorrow. The 65-minute launch window opens at 3:33 am (local time), and the weather forecast is 70 percent favorable for takeoff, NASA said. The probe's main goal is to unveil the secrets of the corona, the unusual atmosphere around Sun. Not only is the corona about 300 times hotter than the Sun's surface, it also hurls powerful plasma and energetic particles that can unleash geomagnetic space storms and disrupt Earth's power grid. "The Parker Solar Probe will help us do a much better job of predicting when a disturbance in the solar wind could hit Earth," said Justin Kasper, one of the project scientists and a professor at the University of Michigan. The probe is protected by an ultra-powerful heat shield ...
