  1. The International Space Station, as we all know, is currently the only fully functional space station in the Earth's lower orbit. It's the result of a partnership between European countries represented by the European Space Agency the United States, Japan, Canada, and Russia. Well, looks like there's going to be another space station by the year 2030 and it's going to be launched by none other than India. The same has been confirmed by the ISRO chief K Sivan during a press conference where he also talked a bit more about the project. © Reuters He made it a point to inform that India will not be joining the International Space Station (ISS) and launch its own space station, which will be an extension of the Gaganyaan project. “We have to sustain the Gaganyaan programme. So, subsequently, as a long-term plan, we are planning to have the space station in India. We are going to join the international community in manned missions to the moon, asteroids. We have a clear plan for the space programme,” Sivan said. The proposed space station will likely weigh 20 tonnes and it's said to be used for conducting microgravity experiments. India is targetting 2030 as the date to launch the space station and the preliminary plan is for the space station is to accommodate astronauts for up to 15-20 days in space. We still don't have a lot of details, but we hope to learn more after the completion of Gaganyaan mission. © Reuters As for the Gaganyaan mission, the government is said to have cleared a budget of Rs. 10,000 crore. It looks like there will be two flights from Sriharikota before the maiden flight with crew takes of sometime in 2022. ISRO's complete focus right now is on India's second moon mission, Chandrayan -2. It will take off on July 15 and will attempt to land near the South Pole of the Moon, which has remained an uncharted territory so far. You can learn more about the Chandrayan-2 mission right here.
  2. The words adventure and adrenaline rush mean different things for different people. For some, it could equal climbing the Everest, for others, it could mean drinking the night away before an important exam. However, the ultimate adventure, travelling to space, a dream filled with fear and inhibition for everyone might become a reality soon, only for the super-rich of course. Starting next year, NASA plans on beginning space tourism which will allow private astronauts, i.e guests to travel to outer space. Today starts a new day in low-Earth orbit as we unlock the @Space_Station's potential as a platform for companies to engage in commercial profit-making activities and we welcome private astronauts to visit on U.S. vehicles. Get more details: https://t.co/lJnIlxaii7 pic.twitter.com/8sbi1lEzIn — NASA (@NASA) June 7, 2019 To begin with, this travel is not going to take one to the Moon, but to NASA's international space station.NASA will tie up with private companies which will operate this orbit tour of 30 days. The guests will have to shell out close to 24 lakhs INR per night for this luxury. But no, that's not it folks. It has also tied up with Elon Musk's SpaceX, which will use its Dragon capsule, and Boeing, which is currently building a spacecraft called the Starliner. The taxi fare for this will be close to $ 60 million per flight! Crazy right? Well, the price is as crazy as the idea of vacationing in outer space.
  3. Despite the decriminalisation of Article 377, LGBTQIA+ individuals struggle every single day to 'be themselves' out in the open and own their sexuality; unfortunately, just like the society struggles to let go of its judgements and biases. In spite of the law being on their side, at least partially now, they still have to face a lot of stigma, just because the society assumes every individual is heterosexual. To counter this, The Times Of India has launched a campaign called 'Times Out & Proud', through which the paper will offer the LGBTQIA+ community free space in its classifieds for three months. © TOI The campaign started on the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, and it aims at making daily life easier for the LGBTQIA+ community. The campaign is based on the rightful belief that sexual orientation and gender identities should not decide the stature of a person in society. © TOI Since newspaper is one of the most basic and primary public spaces which is shared by every section of the society equally, the Times Of India decided that it's time to aggressively take progressive steps towards inclusion. As part of the campaign, the Times of India is offering the LGBTQIA+ community a free space in the classifieds section for three months. This is a safe space for the members of the LGBTQIA+ community to not just look for a house, a job or a partner, but a medium through which they can share their stories publicly. The classifieds are simply a platform that the campaign provides to the LGBTQIA+ community to voice their stories. © TOI The campaign has been launched through a film featuring the lives and struggles of different people from the LGBTQIA+ community. One can visit the campaign page to watch the film and join the campaign as well. Hopefully, this step will prove to be a path-changer, when it comes to creating awareness and bringing in non-judgemental attitudes. © TOI If you are a member of the LGBTQIA+ community or want to support a LGBTQIA+ friend or relative, share your stories in 50 words to outandproud@timesgroup.com, and it will be printed free of cost for the first three months. To join the movement and to share your thoughts and views, use the hashtag #TimesOutAndProud Watch the campaign video here:
  4. Studying Twins is Science's love affair from the dawn of time simply because of the near perfect genetic and physical match. This is ideal for scientists to conduct studies for comparing changes in human responses to change in environments. NASA did a similar test with an astronaut who also happens to have a twin brother. Scott Kelly, U.S. astronaut suggested to NASA that he and his identical twin brother, Mark could be a subject of a study of long-term space flight. © NASA This gave scientists and researchers the unique opportunity to monitor two brothers with an identical gene footprint in two very different environments. One in space and one 250 miles below it. Results have finally been publishing and the findings are shocking. Scott experienced changes that his brother Mark did not. These changes went away six months after Scott returned to earth; however, none of these changes posed any health differences. The results are now out and these were the results according to the paper: © Reuters "In this paper, they showed there was no statistically significant difference in genetic modifications they could find between the twin in the space station with the one on the ground," said Gronostajski, the director of the University of New York at Buffalo's Genetics, Genomics, and Bioinformatics graduate program. What were the changes? © NASA Scientists and doctors took many measurements from the Astronaut's body at molecular levels. Such a study has never been done before with such accuracy. Kelly also sent his blood samples to Earth via return capsules. Here are the changes that Kelly's body faced after a year in space: 1. 91.3 percent of Scott's gene activity returned to normal after six months landing back on Earth. The genes never mutated rather respond to the environment. 2. Flu Vaccine has the same effect in Space. 3. Kelly's end caps on Chromosomes got longer in space but returned to normal form upon his return. 4. One category of bacteria in Scott's gut increased, while another decreased; the ratio returned to normal after the mission. We don't yet whether this was harmful or not as more research is needed. 5. Kelly aged faster in terms of physical appearance than his Twin Brother in that period.
  5. While India is going to experience the first phase of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, the Modi government makes it a lot easier for people of the nation to decide whom to bring back in to power. © Twitter Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced on the 27th of March that India shot down a live satellite in space, achieving a pertinent place in the global space power, while also displaying India's anti-satellite missile capability(ASAT). Obviously this action wasn't aimed against any country but it did determine the fact that India is now amongst the countries that are recognised as global space superpowers. © Twitter The PM took to addressing the nation on TV, radio and social media with a speech about the happenstance at noon on Wednesday, and said the following: "In the journey of every nation, there are moments that bring utmost pride and have a historic impact on generations to come. One such moment is today," 'Mission Shakti', as it's called, was a difficult target to achieve but it was completely successful within 3 minutes of the launch, the PM added. The idea was not to release the missile to violate any international laws and treaty and that the satellite was pre-determined target orbiting at an altitude of 300km. There were no other details divulged so we don't know who owned the satellite but there is assurance this wasn't a threat of any sort, to anyone. #MissionShakti is special for 2 reasons: (1) India is only the 4th country to acquire such a specialised & modern capability. (2) Entire effort is indigenous. India stands tall as a space power! It will make India stronger, even more secure and will further peace and harmony. — Chowkidar Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) 27 March 2019 While the PM addresses the nation about the mission, it's actually the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) that is behind this project and they deserve all the credit that has gone into making this mission possible in the first place. The main aim behind the mission is to strengthen the country's overall security and with the success of this very mission, we have become the fourth country after US, Russia and China to acquire such specialised and modern technology. © DRDO "This is a fantastic capability to have and it gives us a deterrence in case our adversaries try to militarise the space or try to prevent us from using our existing space capabilities." said the former DRDO chief Dr VK Saraswat, in an interview with a news agency. #MissionShakti was a highly complex one, conducted at extremely high speed with remarkable precision. It shows the remarkable dexterity of India's outstanding scientists and the success of our space programme. — Chowkidar Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) 27 March 2019 What Is 'Mission Shakti'? While we're happy at achieving such a technologically advanced feat, most of us might be a bit confused about what Mission Shakti entails exactly. Well, we're here to clear out any and every misunderstanding you may have. © Twitter Mission Shakti is primarily a mission that has a team of scientists, who successfully launched a missile at a satellite in low-earth orbit. The anti-satellite (ASAT)that was released into space, hit the mark and destroyed the existing satellite. The missile launched, completed the entire operation in about 3 minutes and it was created by DRDO entirely, for security purposes. . @DefenceMinIndia congratulates the scientists of @isro and @DRDO_India in developing and demonstrating ASAT capabilities. We are proud of you and wish you more glories in future.@PMOIndia @nsitharaman @DefenceMinIndia@PIB_India — Defence Spokesperson (@SpokespersonMoD) 27 March 2019 Former DRDO Chief & NITI Aayog member Dr VK Saraswat on anti-satellite weapon A-SAT: If today you want to have the deterrence capability that if adversaries, that means nation across the world, want to militarise the space, India has the technological capability to match them pic.twitter.com/4XcAp4iUDd — ANI (@ANI) 27 March 2019 What Are ASATs? ASATs are anti-satellite weapons that are specifically designed to destroy satellites during warfare, although they haven't been used during war yet and have only been demonstrated so far, to show force and power. Back in 2010, the then director-general and scientific advisor of DRDO, has said India has the capability to integrate ASATs to neutralise satellites in low-earth orbits. While speculations for developing ASATs to test them out have been ongoing since 2011, on 27th March 2019, the first one was tested to destroy a pre-determined target, making ASATs a success in Indian space technology. © Reuters Other countries with the same technology have already tested their ASATs in space. While US tested it back in 2008, by launching an ASAT to destroy its own satellite, which was decaying in orbit and they were successful in destroying it. China tested theirs in 2007 and had successfully destroyed a weather satellite using a SC-19 ASAT. The non-functional satellite was orbiting at an altitude 865 KM before it was destroyed. Lastly, Russia tested theirs in 2015 and again in 2016 and they have been successfully testing and launching ASAT missiles. While the DRDO chairman talks about DRDOs success by saying : "We have mastered anti-satellite capability and we have today shown that we can hit satellites at long ranges with a few centimeters accuracy," we acknowledge the great extent of work India has put in for the launch, we would also like to throw some light on why the mission is particularly special for space technology advancements in terms of security, for the country. Why Is Mission Shakti Special? There are numerous reasons why Mission Shakti has been given the importance it deserves. One of the prominent ones is that India is now amidst the league of superpowers who have the capability to ward off any threat from a spatial point of view. While China, Russia and the USA are pursuing anti-satellite weapons to a great extent, space has actually become a harsh concern to pursue and India's role in making counter-space capabilities critical by launching an ASAT, is quite significant. © Twitter Apart from Mission Shakti helping to strengthen defence technologies and safeguarding our space assets, the ASAT weapon will likely become an important tool for the armed forces, over the next few decades. Apart from the entire effort has been indigenous and it's a moment of pride to view a spectacular advancement in this generation. Here's hoping India's cohesively strategically work towards it's security continues with utmost honour and success.
  6. At the Lotus Fashion Week 2019, on the second day, among other designers was a remarkable menswear collection called 'Meld' by Dhruv Vaish. © Studio picsing © Studio picsing © Studio picsing Inspired by modern industrial art, and keeping the masculine sensibility in account, the collection is a fusion of geometric prints, versatile textures and fabrics crafted in slick solids. Introducing fabrics like satin for men, alongside traditional works of cottons and wool. The shiny fabric has been juxtaposed with very earthy handloom cottons in contrasting hues of dark navy, purples, browns and vibrant yellows to put together a stellar outfit. © Studio picsing © Studio picsing © Studio picsing © Studio picsing © Studio picsing © Studio picsing © Studio picsing The collection represents the constantly evolving definition of traditional menswear with a limited range of shapes and colours. Introducing a plethora of unconventional colours and a range of clothing like long coats, hybrids, double layered jackets, high-waisted pants, put together with space age sun glasses represents the on-the-go modern man in Dhruv Vaish's collection.
  7. India's space agency ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation) is planning to launch 32 missions this year and it includes a lunar landing mission called the Chandrayaan-2. “The year 2019 promises to be challenging to the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) community with 32 planned missions,” chairman K Sivan said in a message to his employees on New Year on Tuesday. © ISRO / GSAT-19 Launch The most significant of these launches will be the Rs 800 crore lunar mission, a successor to the Chandrayaan-1 lunar probe. The Chandrayaan-2 will be a land rover, and the first one to traverse near the lunar south pole. The wheeled rover will move on the lunar surface and will perform on-site chemical analysis. India is also working on its first human space mission to the Moon that is currently slated for 2021-22. Last year, Prime Minister Modi announced the program and will enable ISRO to finally accomplish its dream of undertaking a human spaceflight programme. © ISRO / LVM-3 So far, the space agency has successfully tested the escape system of the crew module and are confident they shall be able to pursue the human mission within the current timelines. ISRO regularly launches various satellites that benefit the country as well as help in churning profits thanks to overseas clients. The GSAT-20 mission will provide sufficient bandwidth requirement to fulfill Digital India scheme remotely as well as pushing in-flight connectivity. © ISRO It will be the first ISRO-made satellite to attempt to move from a geostationary transfer orbit to a geosynchronous orbit using electric propulsion. 2019 also marks the birth centenary of the founding father of ISRO, Vikram Sarabhai. The agency will host a year-long celebration starting August 12 with national and international events as well as fellowships and scholarships for university students. © ISRO / ADMIRE ISRO is also researching on reusable rockets and it's being called ADMIRE. According to Times of India, ISRO has plans for a test site and a test as well. These are expected to be off of its usual launchpad in Sriharikota, although the dates are unknown. Details about ADMIRE remain under the wraps for now, but according to a few schematics, it'll be a two-stage rocket slightly smaller than the PSLV. (With inputs from IANS)
  8. We don't know about your travel plans, but three Indians are currently making headlines for their week-long trip that is worth a whopping 10,000 crores. via GIPHY We're not talking about a sequel of 'Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara'. We're talking about ISRO's most ambitious project, Gaganyaan, whose budget just got a nod of approval by the government today. The three astronauts will be sent into space by 2022. Twitter (For Representation) Union Law Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad announced the same at a press conference today, "The Union Cabinet has approved the Gaganyaan project under which a three-member crew will be sent to space for at least seven days." Cabinet approves indigenous human spaceflight programme; Gaganyaan programme to carry 3 member crew for minimum 7 days in space at a total cost of Rs 10k crores. — ANI (@ANI) December 28, 2018 This is said to be India's first manned mission to space and the Rs. 10,000 crore budget includes the cost of technology development, flight hardware and essential infrastructure elements. The announcement of launching a manned mission to space by 2022, was announced on August 15, by Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his 72nd Independence Day speech. He also mentioned that with this project, India will become the fourth nation in the league after Russia, the United States and China.
  9. NASA is already really cool. I mean, anything related to space will always be cool and I recently discovered something new that makes NASA even cooler. (Sorry for the overuse of the word 'cool') With every International Space Station mission, there's a group photo of the crew but who says they have to be boring? No one wants to see the same posed picture for every mission so the astronauts got a little creative and made the group pictures super cool and only a little cringey. Recreating an iconic movie poster for every mission, seems like the astronauts had a lot of fun adding a little more pop culture to space. Here's 'The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy's' almost exact recreation. © NASA The 'Armageddon' poster with just a few more people. © NASA 'Harry Potter', all grown up. © NASA Almost exact, down to the barefeet. © NASA This one's a little awkward, I agree. © YouTube This one is so cheesy, I can't even, © YouTube 'Transformers' looks pretty cool, I have to give it to them. © NASA And last, the beloved TV show 'Firefly'. © NASA
  10. Iron Man is up there in space right now…stranded in some dark corner…counting days to his death…alone and miserable, with depleting levels of oxygen. via GIPHY You are a damn liar if you tell me that something in you did not crack when you saw Tony's sunken face and broken spirit, issuing his last message to the love of his life- Pepper Pots. via GIPHY Obviously, Marvel fans rallied together and sent out cries for help to whoever they could. From Elon Musk to NASA, the message was being circulated loud and clear- Rescue Tony Stark. Please. via GIPHY NASA swung into action and responded to the call by listing out ways in which Tony could be rescued. Hey @Marvel, we heard about Tony Stark. As we know, the first thing you should do is listen in mission control for “@Avengers, we have a problem.” But if he can't communicate, then we recommend ground teams use all resources to scan the skies for your missing man pic.twitter.com/zavXrsPljq — NASA (@NASA) December 9, 2018 The THermal Operations and Resource (THOR) officer is truly one of Mission Control's mightiest heroes.

Always good to know @NASA has your back. https://t.co/0Vuj4oErrE — Robert Downey Jr (@RobertDowneyJr) December 15, 2018 Hang in there Tony, help is on its away. DON'T WALK INTO THE LIGHT YET! via GIPHY
  11. I will not lie, but watching Tony Stark issue his dying message to Pepper Pots in the 'Avengers: Endgame' trailer, from some corner in space nearly broke my heart. via GIPHY His sunken face and broken spirit thanks to no food and water, and the depleting oxygen levels is going to haunt me for a long, long time. via GIPHY Obviously, Marvel fans, including me, set things in motion by figuring out ways in which our beloved Tony could be rescued. via GIPHY The most obvious option is Pepper somehow getting his message and sending all possible help imaginable, and then there is the possibility of Captain Marvel managing to spot a stranded Tony in space. via GIPHY But, unknown to the rest of the world, NASA was also working on a plan to respond to Tony's distress call! Well, there is some hope in my heart now that Tony might not just 'drift away' in the dark corners of space, and actually be rescued! via GIPHY NASA, being its genius self, has listed out some ways in which Tony can be saved and the Avengers better be listening up if they want Iron Man back in the squad to kick Thanos' ass! Hey @Marvel, we heard about Tony Stark.

  12. Now that Usain Bolt has retired, is he considering an alternate career option of becoming an astronaut? View this post on Instagram Zero Gravity is a out of this world experience ððð¾ð¾ @ghmumm #DareWinCelebrate #NextVictory A post shared by Usain St.Leo Bolt (@usainbolt) on Sep 12, 2018 at 11:51am PDT This picture will make you believe that, but it's not true. While we don't know if he'll ever become an astronaut, there's one thing we're sure about that he will be the fastest man wherever he goes. Why do we say that? Because he just defeated French astronaut Jean-Francois Clervoy (the man in blue suit) in a zero-gravity race. The man in black suit is CEO of Novespace and French Interior designer Octave de Gaulle. © Reuters For those scratching their heads in confusion. Bolt wasn't really launched in space, the Olympics champ boarded a special Airbus Zero G plane, where you can experience what it feels like to be in zero gravity. © Reuters Bolt celebrated his victory, not with his signature pose, but by sipping champagne floating in the air. Reportedly, this champagne is crafted by Mumm, for astronauts to enjoy in space. © Reuters In fact, this champagne is designed keeping future space tourism in mind. Clearly, these people are living and dreaming about a world in 3018 and we are sitting waiting watching videos of alien invasion. © Reuters The 32-year-old reportedly felt like a "kid in a candy store" after spending some quality time floating in zero-gravity.

  13. Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during his live address to the nation on its 72nd Independence Day, announced that the country will be sending its first manned space mission by 2022. The mission will be called Gaganyaan and will put India in the league with countries like the US, Russia, and China who have been able to pull off a manned space mission. © ISRO The Indian Space Research Organisation, better known as ISRO, plans to send three Indian astronauts into space and the first mission is set to take place within 40 months from now. It is estimated the mission will cost $1.28 billion or Rs 90 crores. The first phase of the mission will involve deploying the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle Mark III (GSLV MK III) which also host a crew of trees into a low earth orbit. The mission is expected to last five to seven days. The GSLV MK III is India's most powerful rocket and was first used last year in June. The rocket was used to deliver a GSAT-19 satellite into orbit to provide internet access. © ISRO ISRO plans to launch the rocket from Sriharikota, Andhra Pradesh from the same space launch station that was used for the GSLV MK III launch last year. The same space station was used to launch the Polar Satellite mission that delivered a record-breaking 104 satellites into orbit. The plan is not set in stone as of now as the GSLV MK III nor the GSLV MK-II have been tested for flight with humans. ISRO also told The Times of India that it is still looking for locations for a possible landing site. The landing site needs to have no habitation around them for a safe landing. Source: NDTV
  14. I'm pretty sure if given an opportunity, no one in this world would ever pass up the chance to go to space, no one. But, space exploration is not that much of a reality yet, and it just reminds me of this one Tumblr post. Very relatable, of course. But, space travel might be possible soon, and when I say soon, I mean in just a couple of years. And, of course, the world's richest man will probably make it happen. Reportedly, Jeff Bezos' rocket company Blue Origin, plans to start charging interested passengers for its first trips into space next year and the price will be about $200,000 to $300,000, or Rs. 1.36 crore to 2.05 crore. So cheap, right? That's such a bargain, I'm so impressed by Jeff. Reuters Okay, all jokes aside, space travel is such a cool thing, so obviously you'll have to pay a lot, A LOT, for it. People who were waiting for the cost of a ticket – and who can actually afford it – on Blue Origin's New Shepard space vehicle finally have some answers through two anonymous sources, who are employees of Blue Origin. Last month, executives of the company shared at a business conference that they are planning test flights with passengers on the New Shepard soon, and then will start selling the tickets next year. Reuters According to Reuters, the New Shepard is “designed to autonomously fly six passengers more than 62 miles (100 km) above Earth into suborbital space, high enough to experience a few minutes of weightlessness and see the curvature of the planet before the pressurized capsule returns to earth under parachutes.” Reuters Apparently, Blue Origin has already completed eight test flights on New Shepard of the vertical take-off and landing, but none of them had any passengers aboard. But, two of the tests did have a test dummy named “Mannequin Skywalker.” Tbh, I prefer the name, Starman. The only thing left to see now, is who will win the race for space travel – Elon Musk, Richard Branson or Jeff Bezos. Source – Reuters

  24. The universe's fastest-growing black hole was discovered by scientists this week and in our opinion, it's the biggest monster we've seen till date. It was discovered by scientists at the Australian National University and it has the ability to consume three Earth-sized suns every second day. The black hole itself has a mass of 20 billion suns and is growing by at least one percent every million years. © NASA The light emitted by the black hole was at least 12 billion years ago which suggests it is extremely far away and was spotted just recently by scientists. “We don't know how this one grew so large, so quickly in the early days of the Universe,” said Dr. Christian Wolf from the ANU Research School of Astronomy and Astrophysics. © NASA We should literally thank our stars that this monstrosity is not at the center of the Milky Way. If this black hole was anywhere near Earth, life itself would not have been possible and would have destroyed everything in our galaxy. “If this monster was at the centre of the Milky Way it would likely make life on Earth impossible with the huge amounts of x-rays emanating from it,” Dr. Wolf said in a press release. The black hole was discovered in a very interesting way as it was discovered by using the SkyMapper telescope at ANU's Siding Spring Observatory. At first, the light could only be described as something similar to infra-red and the team later used data from European Space Agency's Gaia satellite to confirm its existence. © NASA Dr. Wolf added "These large and rapidly-growing blackholes are exceedingly rare, and we have been searching for them with SkyMapper for several months now. The European Space Agency's Gaia satellite, which measures tiny motions of celestial objects, helped us find this supermassive black hole.” So, there you have it, a black hole that is capable of wiping out the entire galaxy. We're just glad that it is nowhere near us and we can go about our daily lives without worrying about this monster. Main image for representation purposes only.
