The new US spacecraft will be named after the late astronaut Kalpana Chawla. The space shuttle for the International Space Station made this decision in recognition of its significant contribution to space science.
Union Minister of State (Independent Charge) Dr Jitendra Singh said that ISRO’s maiden mission to the Moon has sent images which show that Moon may be rusting along the poles.  The sign of this finding is that even though the surface of the Moon is known to have iron - rich rocks, it is not known for the presence of water and oxygen, which are the two elements needed to interact with iron to create rust, he said.    
Water is a precious resource and water scarcity is looming large over the entire Nation. Agriculture, which consumes around 70% of Water, for irrigation purpose, is the most vulnerable sector of the Economy owing to this crisis. To address this issue there has been discussion on implementing solar pump in almost every farmland.
As a landmark achievement in Space missions, Indian Astronomers have discovered one of the farthest Star galaxies in the universe. Union Minister Dr Jitendra Singh said, it is a matter of pride that India’s first Multi-Wavelength Space Observatory "AstroSat" has detected extreme-UV light from a galaxy located 9.3 billion light-years away from Earth. The galaxy called AUDFs01 was discovered by a team of Astronomers led by Dr Kanak Saha from the Inter-University Centre for Astronomy and Astrophysics(IUCAA) Pune.
There are a lot of flying car projects going on around the world but it seems like a distant dream of human civilization. Skydrive ready to make the flying car dream come true. The car that can be taken off by a man sitting inside it has finally been developed by a Japanese company. A Japanese company called SkyDrive conducted a successful experiment with someone in the cabin of a car. In the video, a contraction that looks like a slim motorcycle with propellers rises a few feet (1-2 m) above the ground and travels for four minutes in a netted area.
Amidst the billions of galaxies in the universe, a large number are tiny ones 100 times less massive than our own Milky-way galaxy. While most of these tiny tots called dwarf galaxies form stars at a much slower rate than the massive ones, some dwarf galaxies are seen forming new stars at a mass-normalized rate 10-100 times more than that of the Milky-way galaxy. These activities, however, do not last longer than a few tens of million-years, a period which is much shorter than the age of these galaxies - typically a few billion years.
NASA prepares to study 'giant' asteroid belt NASA has designed the Psyche mission to conduct a detailed study of 16 asteroids with 16 precious metals, including gold and diamonds. NASA's spacecraft to be studied in Florida in 2022. The spacecraft is expected to reach Psyche in three and a half years. The spacecraft will then orbit the psyche for 21 months. NASA said the mission aims to study the asteroid's core and other metals, beyond the rock formations and ice sheets. This is the first time such a study has been conducted by NASA.
This is after many years that you can see a comet with your naked eye in Earth’s night sky, a rare celestial event that occurs after many years. Nehru Science Centre in its ‘Lockdown Lecture’ series organised ‘Comet NEOWISE – A Primer’ to discuss the exploration aspects related to comets. Director, Nehru Planetarium, New Delhi Dr. N Ratnashree explained comets, their position in the sky and how one can observe a comet through a telescope, DSLR camera or even naked eye.
