India needs review of nuclear policy, but Parrikar's public comment was avoidable: Uday Bhaskar 12.11.2016 DNA: Recent Columns
When Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar made a public statement about India's no first use (NFU) policy, the line between public and personal got blurred, says senior policy expert C Uday Bhaskar. According to him, the Defence Minister's statement was extremely unusual, considering PM Modi was in Japan at that time inking a civil nuclear deal.  Parrikar sparked a row on Thursday by questioning India's 'no first use' nuclear policy . He said, "Why should I bind myself? I should say I am a responsible nuclear power and I will not use it irresponsibly. This is my (personal) thinking," Parrikar said replying to a question as he explained the need to be unpredictable in warfare strategy. Taking a dig at the media, Parrikar said they would publish that the nuclear policy has changed. "It has not changed in government. It is my concept. As an individual, I also get a feeling. I am not saying you have to use it first. Hoax can be called off," he said, adding that prior to the surgical strike, Pakistan Defence ...

India-Japan nuclear deal operationalises 2005 US dea 12.11.2016 DNA: Top News
The India-Japan nuclear deal, signed on Friday between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe in Tokyo, has finally ended India's quest for nuclear energy. This deal will also help in the operationalisation of the India-United States Civil Nuclear Agreement, which was signed way back in 2005. But in the absence of a deal with Japan, it was left hanging. The 2005 nuclear deal was important as it paved the way for the American nuclear reactor manufacturer Westinghouse, now owned by the US unit of Toshiba Corporation, to set up plants in India. Westinghouse had been acquired by Japan's Nuclear Fuel Industries and Toshiba in 2009. Westinghouse had, soon after 2005, started negotiations to set up reactors, but this deal could not go forward as Japanese laws did not permit nuclear commerce with non-NPT countries. Now, with the deal signed, the company is expected to set up six reactors in Andhra Pradesh's Srikakulam area. The India-Japan agreement came up after wide-ranging ...

NASA space telescopes spot elusive brown dwarf 11.11.2016 DNA: Urban Tales
In a first-of-its-kind collaboration, NASA's Spitzer and Swift space telescopes have joined forces to unveil an elusive brown dwarf - thought to be the missing link between planets and stars, with masses up to 80 times that of Jupiter. Researchers observed a microlensing event, when a distant star brightens due to the gravitational field of at least one foreground cosmic object. This technique is useful for finding low-mass bodies orbiting stars, such as planets. In this case, the observations revealed a brown dwarf. Brown dwarfs are thought to be the missing link between planets and stars, with masses up to 80 times that of Jupiter. But their centres are not hot or dense enough to generate energy through nuclear fusion the way stars do. Scientists have found that, for stars roughly the mass of our sun, less than 1 per cent have a brown dwarf orbiting within 3 AU (1 AU is the distance between Earth and the sun).  This phenomenon is called the "brown dwarf desert." The newly discovered brown dwarf, which ...
