Countdown for India’s Mars Orbiter Mission begins

Chennai: The countdown for the India’s ambitious Rs 430-crore Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) began Sunday 6.08 am at Sriharikota rocket port in Andhra Pradesh, a space agency official said. The countdown to the flight of Indian rocket Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV-C25) will be for 56.30 hours which is expected to blast off at 2.38 pm. Tuesday, said an Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) official who did not wish to be named. On Saturday, all the pre-countdown activities were carried out after ISRO’s Launch Authorisation Board (LAB) gave it the green signal for the rocket’s flight Nov 1 from Sriharikota, around 80 km from here. According to ISRO, the MOM objectives are twofold — technological and scientific. The technological objectives include design and realisation of Mars orbiter with a capability to survive and perform Earth bound manoeuvres, cruise phase of 300 days, Mars orbit insertion/capture, and on-orbit phase around Mars. It will also enable deep… Read More

India’s space-based ‘revolution’

India’s space-based ‘revolution’

India is preparing to send a robotic spacecraft into orbit around Mars – a first for the country. The BBC’s Asia Business Reportspoke to K Radhakrishnan, chair of the Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) – the country’s space agency – about his hopes for the mission. Q: What is the objective of India’s Mars mission? A: Essentially in this Mars mission, which we are planning, the prime objective is to demonstrate India’s capability to capture the Martian orbit and then to conduct a few meaningful scientific experiments. Q: And what are you hoping to find? A: See, essentially when we talk about Mars and exploration of Mars, you look at life as one of those goals. So (we look for) the presence of methane in the Martian environment and see whether this methane, if it is there, has a biological origin or a geological origin. We also would like to study the Martian atmosphere and… Read More

Mars One will launch its first unmanned mission to the Red Planet in 2016

Mars One will launch its first unmanned mission to the Red Planet in 2016

The firm plans to establish a human settlement on Martian soil in 2023, by offering passengers a one-way ticket. Mars One will send “a small craft that will demonstrate the technologies we need for our human colony” and is inviting partners to join the mission. Bas Lansdorp revealed details of the test mission at the International Space Commerce 2013 Summit, in London. The first step is to test whether conditions for sustaining humans can be created, by sending experimental systems on a lander. “If you have a reason to get something to Mars, get in touch with me,” Lansdorp told the conference. “It could be a country that wants to do an experiment on Martian soil. “I know the UK space agency has been interested in getting to Mars in the past. They could put something on our lander and get a payload there. “We also have consumer firms that are interested in becoming ‘the… Read More

Your movements will help charge your cell phone

Your movements will help charge your cell phone

WASHINGTON: Researchers have developed a new device that turns human motion into power for electronic devices such as cell phones, cameras and tablets. The mobile generator ‘Genneo’ can charge a device with any type of movement so a user could purposefully shake it or just leave it in a pant pocket while taking a hike. “Genneo has created a revolutionary line of products that capture energy from walking, shaking or moving in other ways and turn it into charge for your phone and other portable electronics,” according to the product description on Kickstarter. “These products are easy to carry and they capture energy as you move normally, storing that energy in their on-board battery,” it said. The device includes a micro USB port and comes with a pre-charging cable with a standard USB connection on the other side; that cable allows you to plug in one end into Genneo and the other end into your… Read More

Bihar-Nepal rail link to be ready by 2014

PURNIA: The friendly ties between Bihar and Nepal are set to get further boost as train services between Bathnaha in Araria district and Biratnagar (Nepal) are likely to begin in 2014. The work on the 18-km rail route between Bathnaha and Biratnagar, which is being expeditiously carried out, will hopefully be completed and trains would chug out of Biratnagar by 2014. Katihar DRM Bhushan Patil, who personally made an inspection of the work on rail route on Monday, told TOI that the new rail route construction would cost Rs 248 crore. While 5km stretch of the route from Bathnaha to border point will be inside Bihar, 13km stretch would fall within Nepal. The railways also proposed to upgrade the Bathnaha railway station into a model station which will provide better amenities to commuters from across the border as well, the DRM said. The foundation of the proposed new rail line between Bathnaha and Biratnagar was… Read More
