China successfully launched the Tianlian I-04 satellite on Tuesday from the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in southwest China's Sichuan Province. According to the center, the satellite was launched on a Long March-3C carrier rocket at 23:24 Beijing time. "So far, all the parameters are all correct, and the whole process is going according to schedule. The rocket blasted off at the expected time. It was very successful, and we can give full marks to the launch site.," said Li Benqi, deputy director of the center's planning department. Developed by the China Academy of Space Technology Department under the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation, the satellite will join its three predecessors to achieve global network operation. The center expects the network to provide data relay, measurement and control services for China's manned spacecraft, space labs and space stations. The network will also offer data relay services for the country's medium- and low-Earth orbiting resource satellites, as well as measurement and control support for spacecraft launches. China launched its first data relay satellite, the Tianlian I-01, in April, 2008. The second satellite was launched in July, 2011, and the third was launched in July 2012. Since China's first experimental communications satellite was launched at the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in 1984, the center has already sent more than 100 spacecraft into space, including over 20 Beidou navigation satellites, and the country's first lunar probe, Chang'e-1. "The launching of the Long March-3C carrier rocket is one of over 100 launch missions at our Xichang Satellite Launch Center. This is not just a jump in quantity, but also a progress in quality. It is an important sign, marking the overall improvement of China's strength in aerospace projects. It has also laid solid foundation for more sustained development of China's space probe," said Wu Weiqi, deputy director of the launch center. According to the center, 10 or more satellites will be launched at the center in 2017.

China launched a new high-resolution synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imaging satellite from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in Shanxi Province on Wednesday. The Gaofen-3 satellite was launched off on the back of a Long March 4C rocket at 06:55 Beijing time, according to the center. It was the 233rd flight mission by a Long March carrier rocket. "The whole process went very well. The rocket works well. We have made some major changes on our control system and three-stage engines. They have been tested in the flight and all have met our expectations," said Fan Hongtuan, chief director of the Long March 4C rocket of China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation. As China's first SAR imaging satellite that is accurate to one meter in distance, it covers the globe with an all-weather, 24-hour observation service and will be used for disaster warning, weather forecasting, water resource assessments, and the protection of maritime rights. "The satellite will provide high quality, reliable and quantitative images for ocean monitoring, water conservancy monitoring and disaster monitoring, which will give strong technological support to building our maritime strength and the One Belt One Road project," said Wu Yanhua, deputy head of State Administration of Science, Technology and Industry for National Defense. With 12 imaging modes, the high-definition observation satellite is capable of taking wide pictures of the earth and photographing detailed scenarios of specific areas. Gaofen-3 is also China's first low orbit remote sensing satellite that has a lifespan of eight years. It is able to provide high-definition remote sensing data for its users over long periods of time. Since the inception of the Gaofen project in 2013, China has had an increasingly clear view of the planet. Launched in April 2013, Gaofen-1 can cover the globe in just four days. Gaofen-2, sent into space in August 2014, is accurate to 0.8 metersc in full color and can collect multispectral images of objects 3.2 meters or longer in length. Gaofen-4, launched in late 2015, is China's first geosynchronous orbit high-definition optical imaging satellite and the world's most sophisticated. The Gaofen-3 and the Long March 4C rocket were developed by the China Academy of Space Technology and the Shanghai Academy of Spaceflight Technology, under the guidance of the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation.

CPEC Early Harvest Projects Create Over 30,000 Direct Jobs in Pakistan Follow us on www.facebook.com/pakistanaffairs2017 www.twitter.com/pakistanaffairz CPEC projects create over 30,000 jobs Another myth is busted with the latest information of jobs created by China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) Early Harvest Projects (EHP) as the official data shows that more than 30,000 Pakistani engineers and workers have got direct employment under this corridor project. Perception that only Chinese have been hired by Chinese companies working on CPEC projects is devoid of truth, said officials. According to the data of Planning Commission, around 8000 Chinese are working on these projects. Average strength of Chinese workers never crossed the figure of 25 % of the total employees. It is estimated that the employment opportunities for local youth will maximize with implementation of mega projects in mid to long term of CPEC. International Labour Organization (ILO) estimated that CPEC will support to create around 400,000 jobs while Applied Economics Research Centre (AERC) estimated that China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) is expected to create over 700,000 direct jobs between 2015 and 2030 and add 2 to 2.5 points to the annual economic growth of the country. The estimates of Planning Commission show that the figure may go much higher as CPEC would generate around 800,000 jobs over the period of next 15 years. Presently, the mega energy projects under CPEC portfolio contributed majority of jobs where 16,000 Pakistanis are hired as laborer and engineers. Port Qasim Coal Power project is the top one which created job opportunities for 5,000 Pakistanis. Sahiwal Coal Power Plant Project and Zonergy Solar Power Project stand second in list with 3,000 jobs each. “Around 300 to 500 engineers are working on these energy projects which would surely help in transfer of knowledge in these sector, thus helping the country to have its own trained human resource” said officials. With implementation of two more project in energy sector; Sukki Kinari and Karot, would generate around 6,000 jobs for Pakistani engineers and workers. “Huge number of Pakistani civil and electrical engineers could grab this opportunity where hydropower projects are under execution” said officials. Besides, energy portfolio, CPEC Transport Infrastructure Sector stands second in creating around 13,000 jobs for locals. The data shows that 9,800 Pakistanis are working on Peshawar-Karachi Motorway (Multan Sukkur Section), a biggest infrastructure project under CPEC. The data further shows that KKH Phase II Havelian provided jobs to 2071 locals, Orange Line Metro Lahore created employment for 956 people and Fiber Optic project created 580 posts for Pakistanis. Development of Free zone project at Gwadar has created 404 direct jobs with additional 2,000 indirect employment. It is estimated that this project would create thousands of job opportunities for locals; soon it is made fully functional with establishment of different industries here. The figures could grow significantly with more infrastructure projects expected to begin this year. Construction work on ML-1 project of Pakistan Railway, Gwadar Airport, Eastbay Expressway at Gwadar and other road projects are starting this as framework agreements of these projects have been signed by both side during One Built One Road Summit at China this month. “These projects could further create around 10,000 to 15,000 direct jobs this year” officials estimated. They said that facts and figure clearly indicated that more than 75 percent Pakistanis are employed on CPEC projects, a fact which is contrary to the propaganda being spread by anti CPEC forces. “All the companies try its level best to look for local engineers and laborers, fulfilling the social responsibility” said officials. In addition, CPEC projects being implemented through Public Sector Development Program (PSDP), particularly Hakla-Dera Ismail Khan Motorway Project has also generated thousands of jobs for Pakistani workers. Besides, such a huge direct employment, the CPEC projects which are in construction phase have created thousands of indirect jobs and brought a boom for construction industry as steel and cement manufacturers are fully engaged in multiplying their production.

Pak sattelite (PAKTES-1A) 2018 launching video in China
 
01:01
Pakistan has launched two indigenously built satellites into orbit, using a Chinese launch vehicle. The satellites were launched onboard a Chinese Long March (LM-2C) rocket from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Centre located at the Gobi desert, China. One of the satellites launched is a remote sensing satellite (PRSS1) – a dual-purpose Earth observational and optical satellite. With the PRSS1, Pakistan has become one of the few countries to have its own remote sensing satellite in the orbit. ‘Pakistan to send astronauts into space in two years’ The second test satellite launched is a PAK-TES-1A, developed by Space and Upper Atmospheric Research Commission (Suparco) to enhance satellite manufacture capabilities in the country. According to an official speaking on the condition on anonymity, it would help end country’s dependency on commercial satellites for information related to weather, environment and agriculture. The satellites were then transported to China as the country lacks the infrastructure to launch objects, the official explained. Meanwhile when approached, Suparco officials declined to comment. “This is a big and a proud moment for Pakistan,” remarked the official. He said that now the country will be able to gather its own data related to agriculture, climate change among others. However, the satellites are not meant for any ‘strategic or military purpose,’ he maintained. The sole objective is to obtain data for weather and environment, something that would greatly benefit the agriculture sector in the country, the official added. “Pakistan is currently in the list of those countries which lack launching facility,” said the official. The launching video of the satellites went viral on social media and Pakistanis from across the globe shared their excitement through tweets and posting its video along with appreciation messages to the entire nation. On the other hand according to the Foreign Office the 1,200 kg satellite PRSS-1 will operate at an altitude of 640 km. The satellite will enable Pakistan to meet its imagery requirements in the areas of land mapping, agriculture classification and assessment, urban and rural planning, environmental monitoring, natural disaster management and water resource management for socio-economic development of the country. Another flagship satellite, Pakistan Technology Evaluation Satellite-1A (PakTES-1A) indigenously designed and developed by SUPARCO’s engineers, has also been co-launched with PRSS-1 by the same launch vehicle. Pakistan acquires another communication satellite PakTES-1A is a 285 kg satellite equipped with an optical payload commensurate with national needs. It has a design life of three years and will operate at an altitude of 610 km. The successful implementation of PRSS-1 and PakTES-1A projects has further strengthened the space cooperation between Pakistan and China for future collaborations. The president and prime minister congratulated the nation on the historic event and appreciated SUPARCO’s scientists and engineers for their technical excellence and untiring efforts. The prime minister has assured the nation and SUPARCO of complete support for further advancement in space technology, so vital for socio-economic development and national security of Pakistan, he stressed. Our scientists and engineers are the source of pride for the nation and the country, the PM added. #PKTES-1Asatellite#subscribe#channel -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Pakistan Army Response to Indian Violation At LOC" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXAmWmVngg4 -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-
New Icing Wind Tunnel Signifies China's Progress in Aerodynamics Research
 
01:17
The newly built icing wind tunnel designed by China's Aerodynamics Research and Development Center (CARDC) signifies China's progress in research capability for aerodynamic research and testing. Focusing on icing of airfoils while flying at high altitude, the research helps to develop anti-icing and de-icing technologies. "Attention! The testing is about to begin. Start spraying," announced a member of the working staff in the center. "Copy! Start spraying, " another member responded. As a senior expert at his seventies, Liu Zhengchong, together with his team, has solved many technical problems in the cooling system, the spraying system, the simulation system, etc. His work has paved way for the building of the icing wind tunnel. "Core technologies cannot be bought from other countries. Therefore, we have built this icing wind tunnel, so as to develop China's aerospace industry independently," said Liu. CARDC is in charge of all aerodynamic research and testing for airplanes, missiles, spaceships. Liu's team has developed advanced testing techniques in tail spinning, airfoil fluttering and thermal protection, making China among the top countries in aerodynamic testing. Currently, the three main research methods of the center, namely wind tunnel testing, data analysis and model testing, have enabled the center to handle more aerodynamic issues. "I think China's aerospace industry has a bright future with the technological foundations provided by this state-of-the-art aerodynamic research base," said Le Jialing, an academician at Chinese Academy of Engineering. Deemed as the "cradle for aeronautics and astronautics devices," wind tunnel's status as a strategic resource has been recognized by many countries.

Chinese Fighters To Remotely Control Drones In Five Years: Experts. The Chinese stealth fighter jets will be capable of remotely controlling drones via satellite in the coming five years. Chinese fighters J-20 and J-31 will be capable of mobilizing the drones for battle by serving as their control platforms, Xu Yongling, a retired PLA chief test pilot and an expert at the Chinese Society of Aeronautics and Astronautics was quoted as saying at a recent defense seminar, Cankaoxiaoxi newspaper reported. "China could achieve the technology within five years. Chinese fighter jets will have the ability to control drones in real time in battles in the Indian Ocean, the west Pacific Ocean and South China Sea," Global Times reported quoting Xu as saying on Tuesday. The J-20 and J-31 can remotely control up to six large drones armed with missiles or a fleet of smaller drones if they are equipped with Artificial Intelligence, Fu Qianshao, another air defense expert, said. The AI technology is much more likely to be first used in twin-pilot aircraft, like third-generation fighter jets such as the J-10 and J-16. One pilot would process the data transmitted from drones, while the other pilot focuses on the manned mission, Fu said. However, Xu admitted that the technology poses a problem. "It's unknown if the fighter jets can reconfigure the missions of the drones in time with keyboard commands air force academy, air force basic training, air force careers, air force form, air force jobs, air force recruiter, air force requirements, air force test, best fighter jet, best fighter jets, china air, china air force, china search, chinese air force, chinese air force news, chinese airlines, chinese fighter jet, chinese military aviation, pla air force, the air force, us air force, y 20 aircraft ====================================================================================================== DISCLAIMER: Each and every content used in this video is not imaginary.

ISRO Opens Up Satellite Making To Industry
 
04:17
This video shows you that ISRO Opens Up Satellite Making To Industry. Space agency invites applications from single, combined domestic entities. The Indian Space Research Organisation has opened the door to domestic entities that can give it up to 18 spacecraft a year starting mid to late 2018. The Bengaluru-based ISRO Satellite Centre (ISAC), which has so far produced about 90 Indian spacecraft, on Monday invited single or combined industries to apply for this opportunity. ISAC Director M. Annadurai told The Hindu that the centre expected to select five or six contenders from this exercise “if they are found technically suitable.” Three-year contract ISAC would sign a three-year contract with the finalists, train, handhold and supervise their teams in making its range of satellites at its facility. The Indian Space Research Organisation Scurrently makes four categories of spacecraft — communication, remote sensing, navigation and scientific missions — and in three sizes of 1,000 kg to 4,000 kg. The first lot of spacecraft from this exercise was expected in about six months from the signing of the contracts. This is also roughly the normal time taken to assemble a satellite. Dr. Annadurai said: “The outsourcing of assembly, integration and testing [AIT] in a way covers operational spacecraft, mostly repeat types that ISRO routinely requires. However it will be decided by an in-house committee” which he heads. About the cost of industry-made spacecraft versus those made in-house, he said: “We don’t envisage any cost increase.” Currently, about eight satellites are being produced in a year for national programmes; a 2,000-kg spacecraft costs ISRO about Rs. 200 crore. The contract mentions milestone payments, assigning of new spacecraft upon delivery; and a possible renewal of contract after three years. Benefits for ISRO How would the exercise benefit ISRO or ISAC which has around 900 engineers versed in different sk!lls related to spacecraft? “Right now, the manpower of ISAC/ISRO is not adequate for meeting both the increased load of making more satellites; and also for the R&D that we need for future satellites. The present bid to outsource our AIT will help us re-deploy our human resources effectively and focus on R&D,” he said. isro, pslv, indian space research organisation, hpvp, polar satellite launch vehicle, indian space program, isro news, indian space research, uslv, pslv launch, india space, isro tenders, isro latest news, indian space research organization, isro launch, indian space news, space research in india, indian space research centre, isro latest launch, isro projects ====================================================================================================== DISCLAIMER: Each and every content used in this video is not imaginary.

5 Years of Landsat 8
 
02:36
In its five years in space, Landsat 8 has racked up an impressive line of statistics. The satellite made 26,500 orbits around Earth. It captured 1.1 million "scenes" of our home planet. Its images now represent 16 percent of all the observations kept in the 45-year Landsat archive. Landsat 8's higher resolution and faster data acquisition rates are enabling significant research and opening up new ways in which scientists, businesses, and resource managers can use the data. Water quality mapping, near-real-time ice velocity detection, and improved tracking of crop health and how much water crops use are among the research and real-world applications that Landsat 8 is enabling. Landsat 8, which before launch was called the Landsat Data Continuity Mission, launched into orbit on Feb. 11, 2013. Once it was renamed Landsat 8 and became op erational, the satellite continued a streak of engineering and science success unmatched in spaceflight: the succession of Landsat satellites has now made 45-plus years of continuous observations of Earth's surface, without any gaps. USGS and NASA are commited to keeping the entire Landsat data archive free and accessible to scientists and the public.

NavIC – India’s answer to GPS systems of America | GPS alternative by ISRO
 
06:03
We hope this video has given you some insights about NavIc India's answer to GPS. If you would like to know more here is the reference book used: Advanced Surveying: Total Station, GPS, GIS & Remote Sensing by Pearson ------------------------------ Amazon: https://amzn.to/2L28frd Download our app : https://www.exambin.com/app Learn online : https://www.exambin.com/learn In this lesson you will be knowing about NavIC – India’s answer to GPS systems of America. Navic is a gps alternative which is otherwise known as gps of india. Navic india gps, navic india are some the key terms related to the project t. Navic is launched by isro. 7 satellite navic is using. navik gps system is indian regional navigational satellite system (irnss), navic full form is Navigation With Indian Constellation, you can know how to use navic in few months when, navic launch date is announced, isro navic, indian gps name. navic cost is reavealed by isro. navic coverage will be around india. So far we are dependent on GPS that is an American initiative. Now India is all set to unveil its own 'desi' version of GPS titled 'NavlC' now for the country and some surrounding areas. Here's all about it. What is NavIC? • NavlC - is an acronym for 'Navigation with Indian Constellation'. • It is an operational name for Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS) • The name is chosen by PM Narendra Modi, after the IRNSS-1G satellite was launched. • It will provide users with accurate information about the positions and is set to will be ready for the public use by early 2018. Cost and Timeline: The project cost Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) an amount of Rs. 1,420 crore and was completed with the successful launch of IRNSS-1G satellite on April 28, 2016. ISRO’s Project Cost is Rs.1420 Crore 7th Satellite IRNSS-1G launched on April 28, 2016. IRNSS-1G was the last among the seven satellites in constellation which helps the NavlC positioning. Though, the 'desi' positioning system is operational now, it is not ready for public use as of yet. What is the difference between NavIC and GPS? India, till now, using the American GPS, which started in 1973. There have been hurdles when we use a third country’s resource one fine example is The United States had denied providing GPS information to India in 1999, during the Kargil War. With the indigenous positioning system, India will also be among the countries that have their own positioning systems like America's GPS, European Union's Galileo and Russia's GLONASS. What areas it is going to cover? Space Applications Centre director, Tapan Misra said that, "NavIC will be covering the entire country, Indian Ocean and its surroundings. In the west, the system will have a reach till eastern parts of Arabian peninsula and in the east, some parts of China. In the south, NavIC signals will work till Malaysia." On the other hand, China is also building its own Beidou Navigation Satellite System, which is not operational yet. Is there a technical difference from GPS? NavlC covers India and its surroundings with seven satellites in the constellation, while America's GPS uses 24 satellites but provides the positioning service across the world. NavIC will be providing standard positioning service to all users with a position accuracy of 5 metre. The present GPS of US has a position accuracy of 20-30 metre. How is it superior from others? SAC director Tapan Misra has told that since NavIC is not dependent on any model to find the frequency error it will be more accurate than GPS." Misra also stressed on the fact that NavlC is being made ready for common public as well with the development of digital chips, which can be used in mobiles and handsets. Release: It's just a matter of time Mr Misra has added that "Academic institutions doing ground verification and data calibration for NavIC to find its accuracy. For the technology to be used in in mobiles and other electronic gadgets the Space application centre have developed digital chips. The Indian Army Force (IAF) has already made receivers compatible with NavlC. The military service will supposedly use the positioning system to track aircrafts and deliver missiles. Future Uses India's own positioning system would aid in various things ranging from disaster management to terrestrial, aerial and marine navigation. For drivers on the road it will provide visual and voice navigation to help with directions. It can also be used with mobile phones like how GPS is used, and will help users with tracking and locating in unknown areas.

Malaysia rejects jet 'debris' images, 4 hour flight report - 13Mar2014
 
03:17
KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysia said on Thursday that satellite images of suspected debris from a missing jet were yet another false lead, and debunked a report the plane had flown on for hours after losing contact -- leaving the nearly week-old mystery no closer to being solved. China had sparked talk of a breakthrough in the riddle of the Malaysia Airlines (MAS) jet with satellite images of three large floating objects near where flight MH370 with 239 people on board lost contact on Saturday, en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. But Vietnamese and Malaysian planes that searched the area in the South China Sea on Thursday found no sign of wreckage of the Boeing 777, which has one of the best safety records of any jet. Adding to confusion, the Wall Street Journal reported that US investigators suspected the plane flew for four hours after its last known contact with air traffic control at 1:30am Malaysian time, based on data automatically sent from its Rolls-Royce engines. It would mean flight MH370 travelled for hundreds of miles after it dropped off the radar, expanding the potential crash site far beyond the vast zone under scrutiny now. The WSJ said US counter-terrorism officials were probing the possibility that a pilot or someone else on board diverted the jet towards an unknown location after turning off its communication transponder. But Malaysia denied the report as "inaccurate". "The last (data) transmission from the aircraft was at 0107 hours which indicated that everything was normal," Acting Transport Minister Hishammuddin Hussein told reporters. "Rolls-Royce and Boeing teams are here in Kuala Lumpur and have worked with MAS and investigation teams since Sunday. These issues have never been raised." He added that China had told Malaysia that the satellite photos posted on the website of a Chinese state science agency were released "by mistake and did not show any debris". The day of Malaysian denials only exacerbated the puzzles surrounding the search for flight MH370, which has been blighted by false alarms, swirling rumours and contradictory statements about its fate. Authorities have chased up all manner of leads, including oil slicks, a supposed life raft found at sea and even witness accounts of a night-time explosion, only to rule them all out. "Every day, it just seems like it's an eternity," Danica Weeks, whose husband Paul was on board, told CNN from their home in the Australian city of Perth. Fighting back tears, she described how Paul had left his wedding ring and watch with her for safekeeping before starting his journey to a mining venture in Mongolia. "I'm praying that I can give (them) back to him. It's all I can hold onto. Because there's no finality to it and we're not getting any information," she said. Malaysia has contributed to the confusion by saying the plane may have turned back after taking off. Military radar detected an unidentified object early Saturday north of the Malacca Strait off west Malaysia but it is unclear if it was the missing airliner. The search for the plane now encompasses both sides of peninsular Malaysia, over an area of nearly 27,000 nautical miles (more than 90,000 square kilometres) -- roughly the size of Portugal -- and involves the navies and air forces of multiple nations. Theories about the possible cause of the disappearance range from a catastrophic technical failure to a mid-air explosion, hijacking, rogue missile strike and even pilot suicide. Beijing will keep up the search "as long as there is a glimmer of hope", Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said. The passengers included 153 Chinese citizens, and Li told his once-a-year news conference: "Those people's families and friends are burning with anxiety." The satellite information prompted the focus of the search to swing back on Thursday to the original flight path, after a shift in recent days to Malaysia's west coast -- far from the last known location. "We will look at all areas especially the ones with concrete clues," a spokesman for Malaysia's civil aviation department said. The China Centre for Resources Satellite Data and Application said in a statement on its website earlier this week that it had deployed eight land observation satellites to scour the suspected crash area. ☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺☺ Content had been truncated due to text limit, pls visit below link for full content: www.channelnewsasia.com/news/asiapacific/malaysia-rejects-jet/1034582.html

Amazon Announces Satellite Stations
 
00:57
Business Insider reports that after expanding from retail sales to cloud computing, Amazon is now getting into satellites. The company has unveiled plans to build a dozen satellite transmission facilities throughout the world. It unveiled that plan at the Amazon Web Services annual re:invent conference in Las Vegas on Tuesday. The so-called "ground stations" are essentially antenna-equipped facilities that can send and receive data from the thousands of satellites orbiting the earth. Amazon will let customers rent access to the satellite ground stations. This in the same manner that they lease access to its computer datacenters. Amazon said that companies that have not traditionally had the financial resources to build and operate their own satellite transmission infrastructure will be able to get access to satellite services on-demand. https://www.businessinsider.com/amazon-launches-aws-ground-station-the-station-as-a-service-2018-11 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Pakistan Satellite | PRSS-1 and pakTES-1A 2018
 
02:08
Pakistan Satellite | PRSS-1 and pakTES-1A 2018 | Emerging Pakistan Subscribe our Channel for more videos. China today successfully launched two remote sensing satellites for its “all-weather” ally Pakistan, which will also help the two countries monitor progress as they build the strategic USD 50 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor. The launch of the two satellites marks yet another space cooperation between China and Pakistan since the launch of PAKSAT-1R, a communication satellite, in August 2011. The satellites — PRSS-1 and PakTES-1A — were launched from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Centre in northwest China at 11:56 am using a Long March-2C rocket, state-run Xinhua news agency reported. The PRSS-1 will be used for land and resources surveying, monitoring of natural disasters, agriculture research, urban construction and providing remote sensing information for the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) under the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) of the Chinese government. The satellites will play a positive role in the development of Pakistan’s economy and improve the lives of people. Alongside, it will also provide space remote sensing information services for the CPEC, which is flagship project of the BRI. The USD 50 billion CPEC is a network of infrastructure projects that are currently under construction throughout Pakistan that will connect China’s Xinjiang province with the Gwadar port in Pakistan’s Balochistan province, giving China an opening to the Arabian Sea. The satellite, which has a designed life of seven years, is equipped with two panchromatic/multispectral cameras, with a resolution up to a metre and a coverage range of 60 km. Designers say the two cameras are among the best exported remote sensing cameras made by China. They can be used to monitor plant diseases and pests, the report said. Each camera has independent image processing, storage and transmission capability. The design of lossless compression could greatly improve the quality of the images, according to the designers. A specially designed orbit will ensure the satellite operates steadily and will optimise the image quality. The satellite can turn at wide angles to enable the cameras to cover a wider range. The PRSS-1 has an information security design, and the data can be encrypted. The data transmission system is a mature technology, which has been used in more than 20 Chinese satellites, said He Xinyang, vice president of the Xi’an branch of the CAST. When the satellite flies over Pakistan, it can send back real-time images, said Zhang Qian, a designer for the data transmission system. Today’s launch is the 279th mission of the Long March rocket series. Long March-2C rockets are mainly used to send satellites into low Earth or Sun-synchronous orbits. It is also the first international commercial launch for a Long March-2C rocket within nearly two decades after it carried Motorola’s Iridium satellites into orbit in 1999.

Chinese And Indian Competition In Space Heats Up
 
15:52
Chinese And Indian Competition In Space Heats Up. On May 5, India began a new diplomatic push in South Asia by launching the “South Asia satellite” into space. Built and launched by the government-run Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), the satellite will provide communications and meteorological data to India’s South Asian neighbors (Economic Times, May 5 and Xinhua, May 5). The satellite is an attempt to not only strengthen India’s ties with its smaller neighbors and promote India-led regional co-operation but also to contain mounting Chinese influence in the region and countering its space co-operation with these countries. China’s influence in Sri Lanka has grown due to robust bilateral economic and defense ties (China Brief, May 15, 2015). Space collaboration has taken this co-operation to a higher level. In 2012, China put a commercial satellite into space for Sri Lanka (The Island, November 21, 2012). It is extending its Beidou Navigation Satellite (BDS) System to Sri Lanka and is setting up at least ten Continuously Operating Reference Stations there for this purpose (China Daily, April 1). Having drawn Sri Lanka into its orbit, China is attempting to build additional space partnerships with Afghanistan, Nepal and the Maldives—much to Delhi’s alarm (The Hindu, March 21, 2013). In response, India has turned to space diplomacy to court neighbors and allies in East Asia. In Vietnam, India set up a dual civilian- and military- use satellite tracking and imaging center (India Today, January 25, 2016). At the height of the Cold War the United States and the Soviet Union used money and weapons to build satellite states; today China and India are using satellites in space to win influence and secure their geo-political and economic interests. They see each other as competition in the global satellite launch business. So how do the Indian and Chinese space programs compare? In which areas is competition likely to be most intense? Background China’s space program began in the late 1950s and predates India’s by at least a decade. Unlike India’s space program, which was driven by development applications of space technology, China’s program originated in military objectives. In 1993, the China National Space Administration (CNSA) was set up to coordinate the country’s space activities. India’s space program had a humble beginning and continues to operate with very limited resources—the Organization for Economic and Social Development (OECD) estimates that India’s annual space budget in 2013 was roughly $1.2 billion compared to China’s $6.1 billion and the US’ $39.3 billion (World Economic Forum, Jan 11, 2016; Rediff, November 20, 2003). indian satellite, indian space mission, indian space news, indian space program, indian space research centre, indian space research organisation, indian space research organization, indian space station, isro, isro latest launch, isro latest news, isro launch, isro news, isro news today, isro satellite launch, isro satellite launch today, isro tenders, pslv, pslv launch today, pslv rocket, satellite launch, space research in india, uslv ====================================================================================================== DISCLAIMER: Each and every content used in this video is not imaginary.

पाक को मजबूत करने में लगा चीन भारत के लिए खतरा/ China building 8 submarines for Pak to counter India
 
02:36
China has been extending support to its "all-weather" ally Pakistan with an aim to counter India. The latest in its series of efforts, China is helping Pakistan with the construction of eight submarines to ensure a tough competition to the Indian Navy in the Indian Ocean. According to sources, under Project Hangor, China's shipbuilding industry is building the submarines which will soon be handed over to Pakistan. India, as of now, has 16 submarines while Pakistan has 10. The acquisition of new submarines is a part of Pakistan's effort to scale up its capabilities in underwater warfare. At a time when instances of Chinese troops infiltrating into the Indian territory is also not new, the submarines will add to Pakistan's strength and are likely to be a headache for the Indian Navy. The move comes at a time when China has already successfully launched two remote sensing satellites for Pakistan which will also help keep an eye on India as they build the strategic $50 billion China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC). The launch of the two satellites is yet another space cooperation between China and Pakistan since the launch of communication satellite PAKSAT-1R in August 2011. The satellites -- PRSS-1 and PakTES-1A --- were launched from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Centre in northwest China using a Long March-2C rocket. The PRSS-1 is China's first optical remote sensing satellite sold to Pakistan. It is the 17th satellite developed by the China Academy of Space Technology (CAST) for an overseas buyer. It is being said that the PRSS-1 will be used for land and resources surveying, monitoring of natural disasters, agriculture research, urban construction and providing remote sensing information for the CPEC under the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) of the Chinese government. The USD 50 billion CPEC is a network of infrastructure projects that are currently under construction throughout Pakistan that will connect China's Xinjiang province with the Gwadar port in Pakistan's Balochistan province, giving China an opening to the Arabian Sea.

USA: NASA LANDSAT 7 SATELLITE SUCCESSFULLY LAUNCHED
 
01:23
Natural Sound NASA successfully launched its new Earth-imaging satellite on Thursday from Vandenberg Air Force base in California. The 770 (m) million dollar mission will monitor global conditions ranging from soil moisture and snow packs to the effects of flood, fire, earthquakes and volcanoes. NASA's Landsat 7 satellite was launched on Thursday on a two-stage Boeing Delta II booster. The Landsat series dates back to 1972. Landsat 5, launched in March 1984, is still operating. The Landsat 7 mission, with updated technology, was designed to maintain the flow of Earth observation data gathered over the past quarter century. The rockets roared off the launch pad without any problems, carrying the 4,400-pound satellite toward polar orbit. All went well through the first phase of the flight, ending with cutoff of the second stage and the rocket and satellite coasting at 17,000 mph, launch control reported. Landsat 7 is to repeat coverage of any given area every 16 days. Combined with Landsat 5's data, each area will be covered every eight days. The data can be used to determine the health of crops and other vegetation by monitoring water content of the soil, keeping tabs on natural disaster impacts, and monitoring population changes in metropolitan areas. A U-S Geological Survey data center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, will be the primary receiving station and data distribution centre.

Garada - SAR Formation Flying Satellite Coverage 1
 
00:27
Garada, funded by the Australian Space Research Program (ASRP), is a collaborative space engineering research project at the Australian Centre for Space Engineering Research (ACSER). Garada's primary mission is focusing on measuring the moisture in Australia's soils - for environmental protection, agriculture, land use planning, meteorology, ecology, mining and prediction of dust conditions. Using L-band radar, it will also measure forest conditions and flooding events. View the Finding Australia's Invisible Resource report produced by the Garada project explaining the Design of a National Environmental Monitoring Capability. Industry studies have identified urgent shortfalls in Australia's access to medium resolution optical and L-Band SAR data. There are currently no L-Band satellites and only two are planned by other countries in the years ahead. The Garada project aims not only to help fill the gap with a design that uses high technology to achieve significant cost reduction but to build some of the essential supporting satellite navigation hardware. The Garada project includes a study of the orbits and ground station design for Antarctic Groundstation (AG), a proposal for a ground station at an Australian Antarctic base to downlink data from polar orbiting satellites including Garada. AG relies on Antarctic Broadband (AB) to relay the data back to the Australian mainland. AG will double the downlink capacity of all existing and planned polar orbiting satellites that rely on the Norwegian ground station at Svalbard. In collaboration with prominent industry partners, the UNSW-led project will also identify preliminary industrialisation options, both Australian and international, for the development of the low cost L-Band SAR and AG. Garada project will boost Australia's space capabilities in the niche of small satellites and help develop the case for an Antarctic polar ground station that will improve the data return from all polar orbiting satellites.

The Uyghur emergency: The causes and consequences of China's mass incarceration of Turkic Muslims
 
01:22:44
The Chinese government is under increased pressure over its archipelago of mass detention camps, holding approximately one million Uyghurs and other Turkic Muslims in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (also known as East Turkestan). Beijing has responded with a flurry of contradictory rhetoric, first denying that the camps exist, then portraying them as voluntary vocational training centres, and most recently describing them as a ‘counter-terrorism’ measure that Europe should learn from. In this public seminar, a panel of experts and practitioners focus on some of the core questions surrounding the evolution of this crisis. Why is this happening now? How many people are in the camps? What are the implications for the Uyghur people, China and the international community?

China fear spurs India’s plans to store Brahmaputra water
 
04:02
India wants to fast-track plans to build reservoirs to store water from the Brahmaputra and its tributaries to counter a “worst-case scenario” of China diverting about 80% of the river’s lean season flow in Arunachal Pradesh to irrigate the neighbouring country’s arid regions. The Brahmaputra originates in Tibet, flows eastward and takes a sharp turn west to reach Arunachal Pradesh where it is called Siang. The river’s water discharge is 18.2 billion cubic metre (BCM) in the lean season — November to April — when it enters the eastern state. The government is keen on storing the Brahmaputra’s water in case China restricts the river’s flow in the upper reaches. The idea stems from a worst-case scenario assessment based on Chinese plans, a senior official said. India wants to store around 14.8 BCM of water to drive four proposed hydropower projects on the Siang, Lohit, Subansiri and Dibang rivers in Arunachal Pradesh during the dry winter and spring. The primary focus is on the 10,000 megawatt Siang project that will have a reservoir to store 9.2 BCM of water. “The lean season average for Siang at the point it enters India in Arunanchal’s Tuting is 18.2 BCM of water. Then at the next measuring point in Pasighat, it is 22.3 BCM,” an official said. The reservoirs are likely to help control the annual floods in Assam, the official said. Harnessing the Brahmaputra for power has been a longstanding plan and it has faced stiff resistance from locals and environmentalists, who argue that dams will inundate large tracts of virgin forests and will remain a huge risk in the highly seismic region. But fresh reports of Chinese threats to divert the river’s water prompted the Centre to call an inter-ministerial meeting recently to discuss the proposed projects. The governments of Arunanchal Pradesh and Assam were asked to give their opinion on an enhanced compensation package to landowners for the Siang project. The states are yet to reply. “Earlier, the Siang Upper Storage-I and Siang Upper Storage –II were proposed. Now, an in-principle decision was taken to merge the two projects,” a water resources ministry official said. “The state government has been assured that funding concerns can be addressed and loans will be available,” another official added. Funding has been a niggle as investment from abroad for projects in Arunanchal Pradesh raised the hackles of China, which claims 90,000 square km of the state as its own. Shashi Shekhar, former secretary at the water ministry, called for caution considering the region’s sensitive ecology. “Holding so much water in a highly tectonic zone can be risky. Much study is required before a final call can be taken. The government should not rush into the projects based on threat perceptions from China,” he said. According to Shekhar, the government should do a cost-benefit analysis of the project. But several experts thought India should counterbalance any China’s plans for the Brahmaputra. Lalit Mansingh, a former foreign secretary, said the country should raise the storage capacity and mount a diplomatic campaign to expose internationally how China “by stealth works on water diversion in Brahmaputra that can affect a lower riparian state”.

ISRO’s Mega Plan For 2018 Revealed | 12 Missions In 12 Months | GSLV | Ariane 5 | PSLV
 
10:20
ISRO's big launches for 2018 include Chandrayaan-2, GSAT-11, GSAT-29, GSAT-7A, RISAT-1A & Pad abort test missions. It has already launched the Cartosat-2, GSAT-6A and IRNSS-1I missions. Launches will include both GSLV MK2, GSLV MK3 and PSLV rockets. It will also include France's Ariane rocket. 2018 is proving to be a very busy year for India’s space agency ISRO, with a mission planned for each month. The Indian Space Research Organisation has already launched 3 important satellites between January 1 and April 12. These include remote sensing satellite Cartosat-2 on board the PSLV-C40 rocket in January, communication satellite GSAT-6A on board GSLV-F08 rocket on March 29, and navigation satellite IRNSS-1Ion board the PSLV-C41 rocket on April 12. “In the next eight months, ISRO has nine more important missions planned,” ISRO Chairman K Sivan told reporters at the Sathish Dhawan Space Centre in Andhra Pradesh’s Sriharikota last week. This means ISRO will average one mission every month for the year 2018 – which would be a remarkable achievement. Chandrayan-2 Mision. Expected to be the biggest mission of all this year, Chandrayaan-2 will be India’s second mission to the moon. Unlike Chandrayaan-1, which only had a lunar orbiter, Chandrayaan-2 will have an orbiter, a lander and a rover. According to ISRO’s plan, after reaching the 100 km lunar orbit, the ‘lander’ housing the ‘rover’ will separate from the ‘orbiter’. After a controlled descent, the lander will soft land on the Moon’s surface at a specified site and deploy the rover. The rover, which will be six-wheeled, will move around the landing site in semi-autonomous mode as decided by the ground commands. The instruments on the rover will observe the lunar surface and send back data, which will be useful for analysis of the Moon’s soil. THE GSAT-11 MISSION. As explained by ISRO, the GSAT-11 is a multi beam high throughput communication satellite operating in Ka and Ku-bands employing a new bus. It provides 32 user beams in Ku-band and 8 gateway beams in Ka-band. The payload includes Ka x Ku-band forward link transponders and Ku x Ka band return link transponders. THE GSLV-Mk3-D2 GSAT-29 MISSION GSAT-29, which too is a GSAT series satellite as explained above, is configured around ISRO’s Enhanced 1 to 3K Bus and will be the payload for second developmental flight of GSLV-Mk 3. It carries Ka x Ku multi-beam and optical communication payloads for the first time. The mission targets for Village Resource Centres (VRC) in rural areas to bridge the digital divide. GSAT-7A MISSION. The GSAT-7A satellite is an advanced military communications satellite. It will be dedicated for the sole use of the Indian Air Force. It is similar to the GSAT-7 which is currently being used exclusively by the Indian Navy. The Navy’s GSAT-7 is a multi-band communication spacecraft, which has been operational since September 2013. The GSAT-7 satellite helps enable the Indian Navy to extend its blue water capabilities and stop relying on foreign satellites like Inmarsat, which provide communication services to its ships. Similarly, the GSAT-7A satellite will help the Indian Air Force spread its wings further. THE RISAT-1A MISSION. RISAT or Radar Imaging SATellite (RISAT-1A) will be a remote sensing satellite that is similar in configuration to RISAT-1. It will be the third satellite in the RISAT series. RISAT-1, which was the second in the series, uses C-band 5.35 GHz synthetic aperture radar for earth observation. PAD ABORT Test. ISRO is gearing up to conduct a critical ‘crew bailout test’ to see how fast and effectively the crew module of an intended space mission could punch out from the spacecraft safely in the event of an emergency. PSLV-C42 Mission. The PSLV C42 Mission is planned in August. Which may launch SSTL-S1, a dedicated commercial satellite. Cartosat-3 Mission. Oceansat-3 Mission. There may be RLV-TD Landing experiment. This time, the RLV-TD will land on land instead of water. The RLV-TD will almost be a ditto version of the first scaled-down RLV-TD with the only exception being it will have landing gear. Video Source: ISRO
Made In India - ISRO Space Research -2013
 
09:01
The Indian Space Research Organization is the primary space agency of the Indian government. ISRO is amongst the six largest government space agencies in the world. Its primary objective is to advance space technology and use its applications for national benefit. It was established for the research and development of vehicles and activities for the exploration of space within and outside of Earth's atmosphere in 1969. Headquartered in Bangalore, Isro chief executive is also chairman of the Indian government's Space Commission and the secretary of the Department of Space. India's space era dawned when the first two-stage sounding rocket was launched from Thumba in 1963. With the advent of the Indian space program, emphasis was laid on indigenous, self-reliant and state-of-the-art development of technology for immediate practical applications in the fields of space science research activities in the country. ISROs first satellite, Arya bhatta, was launched by the Soviet Union in 1975. Rohini, the first satellite to be placed in orbit by an Indian-made launch vehicle was launched in 1980. ISRO has several field installations as assets, and cooperates with the international community as a part of several bilateral and multilateral agreements. Geopolitical and economic considerations during the 1960s and 1970s compelled India to initiate its own launch vehicle program. During the first phase (1960s-1970s) the country successfully developed a sounding rockets program, and by the 1980s, research had yielded the Satellite Launch Vehicle-3 and the more advanced Augmented Satellite Launch Vehicle (ASLV), complete with operational supporting infrastructure. ISRO further applied its energies to the advancement of launch vehicle technology resulting in the creation of Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) and Geo synchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) technologies. Indian scientists and engineers developed the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle which is an expendable launch system developed to allow India to launch its Indian Remote Sensing (IRS) satellites into sun synchronous orbits. The reliability and versatility of the PSLV is proven by the fact that it has launched 55 satellites / space crafts (26 Indian and 29 Foreign Satellites) into a variety of orbits so far. The Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle is a launch system developed to enable India to launch its INSAT-type satellites into geostationary orbit and to make India less dependent on foreign rockets. At present, it is ISRO's heaviest satellite launch vehicle and is capable of putting a total payload of up to 5 tons to Low Earth Orbit. Indian Space Research Organization has successfully operationalized two major satellite systems namely Indian National Satellites (INSAT) for communication services and Indian Remote Sensing (IRS) satellites for management of natural resources. INSAT is a series of multi-purpose satellites to satisfy the telecommunications, broadcasting, meteorology and search-and-rescue needs of India. Commissioned in 1983, INSAT is the largest domestic communication system in the Asia-Pacific Region. IRS are a series of earth observation satellites, that provides remote sensing services to the country. They provide data in a variety of spatial, spectral and temporal resolutions to enable several programs to be undertaken relevant to national development. India's economic progress has made its space program more visible and active as the country aims for greater self-reliance in space technology. India also connects space exploration to national prestige. ISRO has achieved numerous milestones since its establishment. In 2008, ISRO successfully launched its first lunar probe, Chandrayaan-1, while future plans include indigenous development of GSLV, manned space missions, further lunar exploration, and interplanetary probes. Over the years, the space organization has conducted a variety of operations for both Indian and foreign clients. In 2010 India has launched 11 satellites, including nine from other countries—and it became the first nation to launch 11 satellites on one rocket. The Indian Space Research Organization launched its first Mars orbiter, called Mars Orbiter Mission, or Mangal yaan, on 5 November 2013. The primary objective of the Mars Orbiter Mission is to showcase India's rocket launch systems, spacecraft-building and operations capabilities. Specifically, the primary objective is to develop the technologies required for design, planning, management and operations of an interplanetary mission. The Indian Space Research Organization has proposed a budget of US $2.3 billion for its human spaceflight program. If realized in the stated time-frame, India will become the fourth nation, after the USSR, USA and China, to successfully carry out manned missions indigenously.

This is SHYAM TOMAR and welcomes to Tech & Myths #shyamtomar For all updates : LIKE My Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/techandmyths/ Follow Me on Twitter https://twitter.com/techandmyths My website http://www.techandmyths.com The colonization of the Moon is a proposed establishment of permanent human communities or robotic industries on the moon. Discovery of lunar water at the lunar poles by Chandrayaan-1 has renewed interest in the Moon. Polar colonies could also avoid the problem of long lunar nights – about 354 hours, a little more than two weeks – and take advantage of the Sun continuously, at least during the local summer (there is no data for the winter yet). Permanent human habitation on a planetary body other than the Earth is one of science fiction's most prevalent themes. As technology has advanced, and concerns about the future of humanity on Earth have increased, the argument that space colonization as an achievable and worthwhile goal has gained momentum. Because of its proximity to Earth, the Moon has been seen as the most obvious natural expansion after Earth. There are also various projects in near future by space tourism startup companies for tourism on the Moon. The SpaceX Lunar Tourism Mission is a planned private mission to fly two space tourists around the moon aboard SpaceX's Dragon 2 spacecraft. SpaceX aims for a launch sometime late 2018, after the Dragon 2 is tested and flown under NASA's Commercial Crew Program.[1] The Space X Lunar Tourism Mission (this is an unofficial name) could fall around the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 8 flight, which flew astronauts around the moon for the first time, as part of the Apollo program. The announcement for this mission was made on February 27, 2017. Nowadays scientists are thinking to colonization on Solar system's red planet Mars. A human mission to Mars has been the subject of science fiction, aerospace engineering, and scientific proposals since the 19th century. The plans comprise proposals to land on Mars, eventually settling on and terraforming the planet, while utilizing its moons, Phobos and Deimos. The exploration of Mars has been a goal of national space programs for decades. Preliminary work for missions that would involve human explorers has been undertaken since the 1950s, with planned missions typically being stated as taking place 10 to 30 years in the future when they are drafted. The list of manned Mars mission plans in the 20th century shows the various mission proposals that have been put forth by multiple organizations and space agencies in this field of space exploration. NASA is on a journey to Mars, with a goal of sending humans to the Red Planet in the 2030s. That journey is already well underway. For decades, the agency and its partners have sent orbiters, landers and rovers, dramatically increasing our knowledge about the Red Planet and paving the way for future human explorers. The Curiosity rover has gathered radiation data to help us protect future astronauts, and the upcoming Mars 2020 rover will study the availability of Martian resources, including oxygen. There is more to learn as we expand humanity's presence into the solar system: Was Mars once home to microbial life or is it today? Can it be a safe home for humans? What can the Red Planet teach us about our own planet's past, present and future? Building on the robotic legacy, the human exploration of Mars crosses three thresholds, each with increasing challenges as humans move farther from Earth: Earth Reliant, the Proving Ground, and Earth Independent. It will not easy to colonize another planet and sending space shuttle in the space that is by scientists are thinking to make the permanent base on the moon in near future. The moon colonization will help to space colonization on another planet. The distance of moon from earth is 2,84,400 kilo meter.

BALANCING THE SCALES IN THE GLOBAL LAND-USE MARKETPLACE • Dr. Alan Belward JRC
 
44:30
Dr. Alan Belward works at the European Commission's Joint Research Centre at Ispra, Italy, where he is Head of Land Resource Management Unit -- a research team providing information for European policies dealing with terrestrial environment and development-aid issues. His research interests focus on monitoring terrestrial ecosystem dynamics from the analysis of satellite remote sensing data for natural resource management, for assessing climate change impacts and for the conservation and use of biological diversity. Dr. Belward served on numerous international science teams, including work for the Committee on Earth Observation Satellites, the International Geosphere Biosphere Programme and the Global Climate Observing System. He is currently a member of the NASA and USGS Landsat Data Continuity Mission Science Team and the European Space Agency's Sentinel-2 Mission Advisory Group. He is also a visiting lecturer at the Technical University of Vienna where he teaches Environmental Technologies and International Affairs. Our planet supports over 7 billion people and this is increasing by at least 135 additional people a minute -- every minute of every day. This has dramatic consequences for the Earth, especially our land. The land is where most of us live most of the time. It feeds and waters us, clothes and houses us, meets much of our energy demands and plays a critical role in shaping Earth's climate system -- and we don't make any more of it. Land is pretty much a finite non-renewable resource. According to the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (among others) 60% of the world's major ecosystem goods and services have already been degraded or are used unsustainably. If we want to avoid a mismatch between resource use and regenerative capacity and avoid tipping points beyond which return and recovery become impossible then there are hard decisions to be made in the land-use marketplace. Do we use land to produce food? Or fibre? Or fuel? Do we use the land as a carbon sink, a hydrologic reservoir or protect it to preserve biological diversity? International (and national) environmental policies are attempting to balance the scales between use and abuse of the land. These stand more chance of success if they are informed by accurate, accountable and timely evidence. Earth imaging satellites have been gathering such evidence for over 40 years. This talk introduces some of the policies that impact land-use on the global scale and highlights the role of Earth-imaging satellites in responding to these. 21st NOVEMBER 2012 The Mercantile, Dame Street, Dublin 2 ● The making of this video was supported by Dublin City of Science 2012 ● Camera: Marek Bogacki Produced by DOCUMENTAVI 2012

Grateful Helpline Caller Searches for Phone Counsellor to Thank Him in Person 20 Years Later
 
03:56
Good advice often takes years to bear fruit. As Thong Foo Kong has discovered. He has volunteered as a hotline counsellor with Care Corner Counselling Centre since 1993. Some 20 years after advising a young lady caller on the relationship and work-related issues, Mr Thong had an unexpected reconnection with her. Elaine Lee, now married with children, left home at 18 years old to work in Singapore. A foreigner on unfamiliar soil, she found comfort and confidence in speaking with Mr Thong over the phone. “I missed my family,” Ms Lee explains, referring to that period as “the lowest point” in her life. But no matter how down she was, she always felt heartened and hopeful after their phone conversations. “He encouraged me to upgrade myself,” Ms Lee adds, which spurred her on to take night classes after work. It was a phone conversation that spanned across two years, and in that time, though never having met, Ms Lee was extremely grateful for their talks. Grateful enough to start a search for Mr Thong many years later, as she felt she needed to thank him in person. Her gesture has touched Mr Thong deeply. He had never imagined that anyone would try to contact him after so long. Nor did he expect to receive such gratitude. He quotes part of a Chinese saying, “A kind word can warm (a person for) three winter months.” A counsellor’s words stay long after they have been spoken, explains Mr Thong, and this advice can take root in a person’s life at any time. He wishes his surprise encounter with Ms Lee will inspire others to volunteer with the Care Corner hotline. And in turn, Mr Thong’s kindness will live on in future generations, as Ms Lee ensures her children learn the importance of helping those in need. ____________ Learn more about Care Corner: http://www.carecorner.org.sg/services_cc.html You can also be a volunteer with Care Corner: http://www.carecorner.org.sg/volunteer.html Read the full story: https://www.ourbetterworld.org/en/story/2-year-phone-conversation-changed-her-life ____________ Filmmaker: Francis Lau Text: Tsen-Waye Tay Executive Producer: Denise Oliveiro ____________________________________________________________________ For more inspiring stories subscribe now! http://bit.ly/14Ohz8G Our Better World - Telling Stories.

ISRO Prepares For Several Rocket Launches Towards The End of 2018
 
02:01
The Indian space agency will have a busy year-end with several rocket launches planned from its rocket port at Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh, said a top official. The GSAT-11 satellite, which had been recalled from Arianespace’s rocket port in French Guiana for further tests, is also expected to be put into orbit by Arianespace’s rocket Ariane by the year-end, the official said. “The calendar year-end will be a busy one for ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation), launching satellites with our three rockets — Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) and Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV Mk II and Mk III). “Starting September there will be rocket launches with Indian as well as foreign satellites,” K. Sivan, ISRO Chairman told IANS on Monday. According to Sivan, in September ISRO will fly a PSLV rocket with two foreign satellites, earning revenue for the country. In October, another PSLV rocket will fly with an Indian remote sensing satellite and several foreign satellites. October will also see India’s heaviest rocket 640-ton GSLV Mk III flying up with GSAT-29 with Ka x Ku multi-beam and optical communication payloads. The mission targets Village Resource Centres (VRC) in rural areas to bridge the digital divide. In November, ISRO will fly a GSLV Mk II rocket to put into orbit GSAT-7A, to be used by the Indian Air Force (IAF). Earlier, ISRO had launched GSAT-7 or Rukmini satellite for the Indian Navy. Queried about the 5.8-ton GSAT-11, a communication satellite that was recalled from French Guiana this April, Sivan said: “We expect the satellite to be launched before the end of this year. Discussions with Arianespace are on regarding the time and date of the satellite launch.” Video Credit: ISRO & Arianespace
CIA China is waging a 'quiet kind of Cold War' Against US
 
04:31
China is waging a "quiet kind of cold war" against the United States, using all its resources to try to replace America as the leading power in the world, a top CIA expert on Asia has said. Beijing doesn't want to go to war, he said, but the current communist government, under President Xi Jingping, is subtly working on multiple fronts to undermine the US in ways that are different than the more well-publicized activities being employed by Russia. "I would argue ... that what they're waging against us is fundamentally a cold war — a cold war not like we saw during THE Cold War (between the US and the Soviet Union) but a cold war by definition," Michael Collins, deputy assistant director of the CIA's East Asia mission centre, said at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado yesterday. Rising US-China tension goes beyond the trade dispute playing out in a tariff tit-for-tat between the two nations. There is concern over China's pervasive efforts to steal business secrets and details about high-tech research being conducted in the US. The Chinese military is expanding and being modernised and the US, as well as other nations, have complained about China's construction of military outposts on islands in the South China Sea. "I would argue that it's the Crimea of the East," Collins said, referring to Russia's brash annexation of Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula, which was condemned throughout the West. Collins' comments track warnings about China's rising influence issued by others who spoke earlier this week at the security conference. The alarm bells come at a time when Washington needs China's help in ending its nuclear standoff with North Korea. On Wednesday, FBI Director Christopher Wray said China, from a counterintelligence perspective, represents the broadest and most significant threat America faces. He said the FBI has economic espionage investigations in all 50 states that can be traced back to China. "The volume of it. The pervasiveness of it. The significance of it is something that I think this country cannot underestimate," Wray said. National Intelligence Director Dan Coats also warned of rising Chinese aggression. In particular, he said, the US must stand strong against China's effort to steal business secrets and academic research. Susan Thornton, acting assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs, said increasing the public's awareness about the activities of the hundreds of thousands of Chinese students or groups at US universities could be one way to help mitigate potential damage. "China is not just a footnote to what we're dealing with with Russia," Thornton said. Marcel Lettre, former undersecretary of defense for intelligence, said China has the second-largest defence budget in the world, the largest standing army of ground forces, the third-largest air force and a navy of 300 ships and more than 60 submarines. "All of this is in the process of being modernized and upgraded," said Lettre, who sat on a panel with Collins and Thornton. He said China also is pursuing advances in cyber, artificial intelligence, engineering and technology, counter-space, anti-satellite capabilities and hypersonic glide weapons. Army Lt Gen Robert Ashley, head of the Defence Intelligence Agency, told a congressional committee earlier this year that China is developing long-range cruise missiles -- some capable of reaching supersonic speeds. "The Pentagon has noted that the Chinese have already pursued a test program that has had 20 times more tests than the US has," Lettre said. Franklin Miller, former senior director for defense policy and arms control at the National Security Council, said China's weapons developments are emphasising the need to have a dialogue with Beijing. "We need to try to engage," Miller said. "My expectations for successful engagement are medium-low, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't try.

Pakistan launches two satellites using Chinese rocket
 
00:29
ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has launched two indigenously built satellites into orbit, using a Chinese launch vehicle, officials confirmed to The Express Tribune on Monday. The satellites were launched onboard a Chinese Long March (LM-2C) rocket from the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Centre located at the Gobi desert, China. One of the satellites launched is a remote sensing satellite (PRSS1) – a dual-purpose Earth observational and optical satellite. With the PRSS1, Pakistan has become one of the few countries to have its own remote sensing satellite in the orbit. ‘Pakistan to send astronauts into space in two years’ The second test satellite launched is a PAK-TES-1A, developed by Space and Upper Atmospheric Research Commission (Suparco) to enhance satellite manufacture capabilities in the country. According to an official speaking on the condition on anonymity, it would help end country’s dependency on commercial satellites for information related to weather, environment and agriculture. The satellites were then transported to China as the country lacks the infrastructure to launch objects, the official explained. Meanwhile when approached, Suparco officials declined to comment. “This is a big and a proud moment for Pakistan,” remarked the official. He said that now the country will be able to gather its own data related to agriculture, climate change among others. However, the satellites are not meant for any ‘strategic or military purpose,’ he maintained. The sole objective is to obtain data for weather and environment, something that would greatly benefit the agriculture sector in the country, the official added. “Pakistan is currently in the list of those countries which lack launching facility,” said the official. The launching video of the satellites went viral on social media and Pakistanis from across the globe shared their excitement through tweets and posting its video along with appreciation messages to the entire nation. On the other hand according to the Foreign Office the 1,200 kg satellite PRSS-1 will operate at an altitude of 640 km. The satellite will enable Pakistan to meet its imagery requirements in the areas of land mapping, agriculture classification and assessment, urban and rural planning, environmental monitoring, natural disaster management and water resource management for socio-economic development of the country. Another flagship satellite, Pakistan Technology Evaluation Satellite-1A (PakTES-1A) indigenously designed and developed by SUPARCO’s engineers, has also been co-launched with PRSS-1 by the same launch vehicle. Pakistan acquires another communication satellite PakTES-1A is a 285 kg satellite equipped with an optical payload commensurate with national needs. It has a design life of three years and will operate at an altitude of 610 km. The successful implementation of PRSS-1 and PakTES-1A projects has further strengthened the space cooperation between Pakistan and China for future collaborations. The president and prime minister congratulated the nation on the historic event and appreciated SUPARCO’s scientists and engineers for their technical excellence and untiring efforts. The prime minister has assured the nation and SUPARCO of complete support for further advancement in space technology, so vital for socio-economic development and national security of Pakistan, he stressed. Our scientists and engineers are the source of pride for the nation and the country, the PM added.

03:32
This video show you that Earth Observation Satellite “RESOURCESAT-2A” to be launched on Dec 7, ISRO SUBSCRIBE US at :: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxBZ-W32ThgnLWOkyS-dyFw India's latest Earth observation satellite, RESOURCESAT 2A, will be launched on board ISRO's workhorse Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle on December 7 from the spaceport of Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh. "RESOURCESAT-2A is scheduled to be launched on December 07, 2016 at 10:24 hours (IST) from SDSC (Satish Dhawan Space Centre), SHAR, Sriharikota," said the Indian Space Research Organisation, which had earlier planned to launch it on November 28. PSLV-C36, the 38th flight of PSLV, will place the 1,235-kg RESOURCESAT-2A into an 817 km polar Sun Synchronous Orbit (SSO), ISRO said, adding that, in this flight, the 'XL' version of PSLV with six solid strap-on motors is being used. Remote sensing satellite RESOURCESAT-2A, used for resource monitoring, is a follow-on mission to RESOURCESAT-1 and RESOURCESAT-2, launched in 2003 and 2012, respectively. It is intended to continue the remote sensing data services to global users provided by RESOURCESAT-1 and RESOURCESAT-2, ISRO said. The configuration is similar to RESOURCESAT-2 having three-tier imaging capability, with a unique combination of payloads consisting of three solid-state cameras-- a high resolution Linear Imaging Self Scanning Sensor - LISS-IV, a medium resolution Linear Imaging Self Scanning Sensor - LISS-III and an Advanced Wide Field Sensor (AWiFS). The spacecraft mass is around 1200 kg with a power generation capacity of 1250 W and a mission life of five years. PSLV, ISRO's versatile launch vehicle for launching multiple satellites in polar SSOs, Low Earth Orbits (LEO) as well as Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit (GTO) and sub GTO, has 36 successful launches to its credit so far. During 1994-2016 period, PSLV has launched a total of 121 satellites, including 79 from abroad. earth observation satellite, satellite, observation satellite, earth, earth satellite, resourcesat-2a, resourcesat, liss-iii, advanced wide field sensor, awifs, pslv-c36, pslv, spacecraft, low earth orbit, leo, geosynchronous transfer orbit, gto, launched, pslv launched, satellite launched, earth orbit, orbit, isro, payload, flight, linear imaging self, scanning sensor, polar satellite launch vehicle, sriharikota, space mission, space, india space mission, india, Channel Link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxBZ-W32ThgnLWOkyS-dyFw Also Visit our website for more news at http://www.conflictzone.co.nf/

Chandrayaan-2 'Packs More Power Than NASA's Apollo Missions'
 
04:25
This video shows you that Chandrayaan-2 'Packs More Power Than NASA's Apollo Missions'. India's most ambitious space mission yet, Chandrayaan-2, that hopes to place a robotic rover on the moon could be launched as early as April this year, says Dr Jitendra Singh, Minister of State in the Prime Minister's Office that is in charge of space affairs. "Chandrayaan-2 is one of the most remarkable ISRO missions of 2018 and it will be a world event," Dr Singh told NDTV. Only USA, Russia and China have been able to soft-land spacecraft on the lunar surface. If India succeeds, it will be a huge achievement for space agency ISRO that has a budget almost 20 times less than US space agency NASA. Dr Singh says Chandrayaan-2 with its many scientific capabilities will throw up data that "may open up possibilities of future habitation of the moon". There are tantalising possibilities of a human outpost on the moon in the future and India is already investing in its human space flight programme. Chandrayaan-2 is India's second foray to the moon and the Rs. 800 crore mission aims at putting an orbiter around the moon, from which a lander and a rover would detach and reach the lunar surface. Landings in thin atmosphere and low gravity of the moon are very tricky. "Even though Neil Armstrong had walked or, one can say, taken a stroll on the lunar surface in 1969 but it was left to India's small Chandrayaan-1 space craft launched in 2008 that discovered the presence of water molecules on the parched lunar surface in 2009," said Dr Singh. The work does acknowledge that India helped discover water on the moon which was considered a parched environment till then. The Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft, which weighs three tonnes, is being finalised at ISRO's satellite centre in Bengaluru and will be hoisted into space from Sriharikota using the Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle MK II or GSLV MK II. The unique spacecraft will carry 13 scientific instruments that will study the moon like never before. "Chandrayaan-2 will be a breakthrough mission not only for India but for the entire world," said Dr Singh, asserting that the mission "will make every Indian proud". ISRO that hopes to place India's flag on the rover says the launch window opens in April and goes on till October 2018. The rover has to be placed on the lunar dawn and is expected to last at least for 14 Earth days on the lunar surface. It will analyse the soil and look for moon quakes while mapping lunar resources. This unmanned mission, Dr Singh says, packs in 'more power than the Apollo missions by NASA'. Chandrayaan-2 will also reinforce India's capabilities and supremacy in the comity of world nations, he said. india satellite image, indian satellite, indian space mission, indian space news, indian space program, indian space research centre, indian space research organisation, indian space research organization, indian space station, isro, isro latest launch, isro latest news, isro launch, isro news, isro news today, isro satellite launch, isro tenders, pslv, pslv launch today, satellite launch, space research in india, uslv, weather india satellite ====================================================================================================== DISCLAIMER: Each and every content used in this video is not imaginary.

NASA InSight: The Science and Engineering of a Mars Lander
 
01:49:25
Original Air Date: Wednesday, Nov. 21, 2018 PART 1: Engineering Briefing Prior to landing on the Red Planet NASA discusses the engineering that went into the InSight lander. Launched on May 5, InSight marks NASA's first Mars landing since the Curiosity rover in 2012. The landing will kick off a two-year mission in which InSight will become the first spacecraft to study Mars' deep interior. Its data also will help scientists understand the formation of all rocky worlds, including our own. InSight is being followed to Mars by two miniature NASA spacecraft, jointly called Mars Cube One (MarCO), the first deep-space mission for CubeSats.

"The water was beautiful for China in the South China Sea in 2017," said Michael Fuchs, a senior fellow at the Center for American Progress. Though most analysts agree the White House has put the issue on the back burner, there is disagreement as to why. At the start of the year, it appeared that the Trump administration would take a more muscular approach to the South China Sea. "Building islands and then putting military assets on those islands is akin to Russia's taking of Crimea. Its taking of territory that others lay claim to," Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said in his confirmation hearing in January."We're going to have to send China a clear signal that first, the island-building stops, and second, your access to those islands also not going to be allowed."This satellite image shows construction on Fiery Cross, a reef occupied by China.

No Brahmaputra dam being planned  Chinese Media
 
03:31
China, which is constructing many hydropower projects in Tibet, plans to focus on dam building on rivers close to its provinces and not on the Brahmaputra which sparked concerns in India, state media reported today. China had last month rejected as "false and untrue" a media report that it was planning to build a 1,000-km long tunnel to divert water from the Brahmaputra river in Tibet close to Arunachal Pradesh to the parched Xinjiang region. India, as a riparian state, had flagged its concerns to China about various dams being built by it on the Brahmaputra river, which is known in China as Yarlung Tsangpo. An article in Global Times said that "the Jinsha, Lancang and Nujiang rivers are famous waterways in Tibet with enormous hydropower potential, but they do not run through India. "This does not necessarily mean hydropower stations in transboundary rivers flowing from China to India, such as the Yarlung Zangbo River (Brahmaputra), will be isolated from the plan to transfer Tibet's electricity out, but they may be not the first choice," the article said. The Zangmu dam over the Brahmaputra, which became partially operational in 2014, raised serious concerns in India as the first major hydropower project among few more planned by China on the trans-border river in Tibet. The dam's reservoir capacity of just 86.6 million cubic meters of water accounts for a tiny portion of the average annual runoff of the Brahmaputra, the article said. "In any case, India does not need to be oversensitive to Tibet's hydropower development plan," it said. Tibet wants to accelerate water-resource exploitation and make it a new source of economic growth by selling excess hydropower to economically prosperous regions, it said. "But there are still a number of challenges. Once hidden costs of transmission are considered, sending electricity over long distances is inherently inefficient. "To transfer Tibet's electricity out, the exploitation of hydropower resources in the region is likely to be mainly concentrated on the Jinsha River, Lancang River and Nujiang River, which are located close to the border area between Tibet and other Chinese provinces," it said. India's concerns figured in the official media coverage of the USD three-billion Suwalong project over the Jinsha river which state-run Xinhua news agency is proceeding smoothly. The Jinsha is a tributary of the Yangtze river. The Suwalong project is located at the junction of Mangkam county of Tibet and Batang county of Sichuan province in southwest China. It will be the largest power station in Tibet upon completion, bigger than Zangmu dam over the Brahmaputra. The power station has a designed capacity of 1.2 million kilowatts and will be able to generate about 5.4 billion kwh of electricity per year. A 112-meter-high dam will be built to form a reservoir that can store about 674 million cubic meters of water. Generators are expected to start operations in 2021. china blocks brahmaputra,brahmaputra in china name,dam on brahmaputra consequence and reality check,china brahmaputra dam,water disputes between india and china,brahmaputra river latest news,india china water treaty,china stopped brahmaputra river 2017,indian dams on brahmaputra river,biggest dam on brahmaputra,list of dams on brahmaputra river in india,dam on brahmaputra consequence and reality check,list of dams on brahmaputra river in china,brahmaputra river name in china,zangmu dam controversy,jiacha dam,, In india various types of languages are spoken but our national language id Hindi but here are lots of people in south india. north east who can't speak or under stand hindi but they can understand english language so finally we decided to make video in both language so that each and every person can understand and can be informed about defence news on youtube .our videos are related to global defence news . we try to update defence news as soon as possible without any editing but we never say its 100% true but try to get it from verified sources .

Vehicle to probe sea surface to hit the market soon
 
02:53
It’s Made In India. A remotely operated vehicle (ROV) developed by the National Institute of Ocean Technology (NIOT) with multiple civil and military applications ranging from detecting mines to removing garbage deep in the sea, is planned to be commercially launched in a year. The unmanned vehicle can scan the sea surface in both shallow and deep waters. It can go up to a depth of 6,000 metres and transmit high resolution photos and data. In shallow waters it can see up to a depth of 500 metres. Joint effort For the Indian Navy it is considered of strategic importance. ROVs have been field-tested to map coral reef biodiversity in Andaman and Nicobar Islands a few years ago. The National Research Development Corporation (NRDC)’s Visakhapatnam-based Intellectual Property Facilitation Centre and Technology Innovation Support Centre marketed the technology and facilitated the signing of an agreement between NIOT and L&T Defence recently. NRDC Chairman and Managing Director H. Purushotham told The Hindu on Thursday that L&T Defence would roll out the first vehicle in nine to 12 months. Each vehicle will cost Rs. 25 crore to Rs. 30 crore. Mine detector He said the Navy would benefit by detecting mines planted by enemies and undertake exploring the mineral wealth in the oceans. In future, he said export of ROVs would be explored to tap overseas demand. Dr. Purushotham said the low-cost buoyant apparatus developed by NIOT could also be deployed in water bodies such as rivers, lakes, ponds and coastal areas. The vehicle is equipped with sensors and one of the functions is garbage removal. The technology will be licensed for 10 years. “It will be non-exclusive with recurring royalty and a lumpsum technology transfer fee.” Dr. Purushotham said but declined to give details. During field tests, the ROV had taken images of corals useful for developing algorithms to map the coral reefs using sensing techniques, especially satellite remote sensing. Dr. Bijaya Kumar Sahu, scientist in-charge of NRDC Intellectual Property Facilitation Centre and Technology Innovation Support Centre-Vizag, said they were promoting innovation, IPR and technology transfer activities among MSMEs, startups, industries, academia and universities in the region.

Viewing Mosul Dam Lake on the CORONA Atlas
 
00:17
Visit the CORONA Atlas, http://corona.cast.uark.edu CORONA is the codename for the United States’ first photographic spy satellite mission, in operation from 1960-1972. During that time, CORONA satellites took high-resolution images of most of the earth’s surface, with particular emphasis on Soviet bloc countries and other political hotspots in order to monitor military sites and produce maps for the Department of Defense. The more than 800,000 images collected by the CORONA missions remained classified until 1995 when an executive order by President Bill Clinton made them publicly available through the US Geological Survey. Because CORONA images preserve a high-resolution picture of the world as it existed in the 1960s, they constitute a unique resource for researchers and scientists studying environmental change, agriculture, geomorphology, archaeology and other fields. In regions like the Middle East, CORONA imagery is particularly important for archaeology because urban development, agricultural intensification, and reservoir construction over the past several decades have obscured or destroyed countless archaeological sites and other ancient features such as roads and canals. These sites are often clearly visible on CORONA imagery, enabling researchers to map sites that have been lost and to discover many that have never before been documented. However, the unique imaging geometry of the CORONA satellite cameras, which produced long, narrow film strips, makes correcting spatial distortions in the images very challenging and has therefore limited their use by researchers. Thanks to grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Council of Learned Societies, the University of Arkansas’ Center for Advanced Spatial Technologies (CAST) has developed methods for efficient orthorectification of CORONA imagery and now provides free public access to our imagery database for non-commercial use. Images can be viewed online and full resolution images can be downloaded in NITF format. IMAGERY This project focuses on the Middle East and surrounding regions, areas where CORONA coverage is abundant and where its value to archaeology and other fields has been well-demonstrated. The large majority of the images we provide come from the KH4B satellites, the latest generation of CORONA missions in operation from September 1967 through May 1972. During this time, there were sixteen successful CORONA missions, designated 1101-1117 which recovered more than 188000 images. These satellites were equipped with two panoramic cameras, one facing forward and another aft with a 30º angle of separation, producing an approximate ground resolution of 6 feet (1.8m) at nadir as well as offering the capability for stereo-viewing and the extraction of topographic data. Images were originally recorded on black-and-white film, copies of which are curated by the USGS EROS Data Center. The USGS has scanned the images at 7 micron (3600 dpi) resolution. Additional technical details regarding the CORONA program and image characteristics can be read here. Cameras on different CORONA missions produced images that vary a great deal in quality, while many images suffer from cloud cover, atmospheric haze or other issues. For imagery which we purchased, we have concentrated on providing the greatest possible regional extent, as opposed to multiple images of the same area, and have also sought to offer stereo coverage wherever possible. Imagery purchased for this project has been supplemented by images purchased for other projects or those shared with us by colleagues, notably the Center for Archaeology of the Middle Eastern Landscape (CAMEL) and the University of Chicago’s Oriental Institute. Our work has been largely dedicated to developing methods for orthorectification of CORONA imagery. The technical aspects of this process are described in a forthcoming paper: Jackson Cothren, Jesse Casana, Tuna Kalayci and Adam Barnes, “An efficient method for rigorous orthorectification of CORONA satellite imagery” International Journal of Remote Sensing.

India Joins U.S. And China With Plans To Visit The MOON
 
02:56
This video shows you that India Joins U.S. And China With Plans To Visit The MOON. So far, no one has ever managed to land on the far side of the moon, or near its shadowy poles. India wants to tackle both those firsts in one fell swoop this year, with its Chandrayaan-2 mission, a trio of orbiter, lander and rover that would represent the country's second visit to the moon. The mission is scheduled to launch sometime in the first half of this year, no earlier than March. Its target is a patch of lunar surface about 370 miles away from the south pole, where scientists think the rock may be 4 billion years old, formed just after the moon's giant ocean of liquid rock began to solidify. The region is an area NASA would also like to visit, preferably with a robot that would bring souvenir rock home to Earth for scientists to analyze directly in the laboratory. But despite NASA's renewed focus on lunar exploration, as dictated in December by an order from President Trump, the agency won't beat India back to the moon. That's even after India's Chandrayaan-2 mission was delayed by three years after Russia backed out of designing and producing the mission's lander. Rather than lose out on that part of the mission, the Indian Space Research Organization decided to just do it themselves. But they aren't sure how long they can expect the mission to last once the lander and rover arrive—it could be over in as little as two weeks, ending as soon as the sun sets, since the mission runs on solar power and the polar area is quite shadowy even during the day. During that time, the team hopes to gather data about charged particles around the moon and the small "moonquakes" that ripple through its surface. The new mission's predecessor, Chandrayaan-1, was an orbiter that found the first evidence that there was water ice on the moon. Now, scientists know that ice is likely concentrated at the poles, where it could become an important resource for human and robotic explorers alike. The orbiter piece of the upcoming mission will look to build on its predecessor by mapping how water actually moves around the moon. In the long term, India has its sights set well beyond the moon, with dreams of visiting Mars, Venus or an asteroid. india satellite image, indian satellite, indian space mission, indian space news, indian space program, indian space research centre, indian space research organisation, indian space research organization, indian space station, isro, isro latest launch, isro latest news, isro launch, isro news, isro news today, isro satellite launch, isro tenders, pslv, pslv launch today, satellite launch, space research in india, uslv, weather india satellite ====================================================================================================== DISCLAIMER: Each and every content used in this video is not imaginary.

Ethiopia Health and Air Quality - NASA DEVELOP Spring 2013 @ International Research Institute
 
06:37
In some countries, such as Ethiopia, malaria is highly sensitive to variations in the climate. In this context, climate information can either be used as a resource, for example in the development of early warning systems, or must be accounted for when estimating the impact of interventions. In Ethiopia, the determinants of malaria transmission are diverse and dynamic, but altitude (linked to temperature) is certainly a major limiting factor in the highland plateau region, and rainfall in the semi-arid areas. This project addressed this need by using MODIS Land Surface Temperature, Landsat and digital elevation models (DEM) data alongside epidemiological data on malaria cases collected by the Earth Institute-supported Center for National Health Development in Ethiopia (CNHDE) in East Shewa (Oromia Region), Ethiopia, between 1993 and 2007, based on extensive field-based studies conducted in close alignment with the Oromia Health Bureau and the Ethiopian Federal Ministry of Health. This area is uniquely suited to the project's objectives because it embraces a wide variety of epidemiological settings: mesoendemic and hypoendemic malaria transmission; urban and rural malaria; malaria associated with development projects that attract non-immune immigrant workers; and malaria-free areas. Moreover, the presence of both Plasmodium falciparum and P. vivax malaria provides an opportunity to understand the dynamics of each parasite species. The research investigated how land surface temperature measured by MODIS can be used to estimate maximum and minimum air temperature and be linked with malaria incidences in Ethiopian highlands. The project also investigated how Landsat can detect water bodies which create the breeding sites for mosquitoes. Lastly, the research showed how DEM can be integrated to better map the risk of malaria related to elevation and temperature. Future work may involve how the work developed in East Shewa may be extended to other areas of Ethiopia, particularly other districts in Oromia for which we have epidemiological data, as well as other regions of the world where climate and environmental factors are important drivers of malaria transmission, such as Nepal.

Wetland Loss in the Yellow Sea
 
05:10
The Yellow Sea lies at the center of one of the most populated regions on earth. More than 420 million people live in it’s vicinity and the pressure on natural resources cannot be overstated. Already more than half of the Yellow Sea’s intertidal areas have been converted to land through a process dubbed “reclamation” and the pace of this reclamation is accelerating. If the remaining intertidal areas are lost, long distance migrant bird species and the livelihoods of people that make their living from these mudflats will be lost as well. Already, the Spoon-billed Sandpiper’s population has declined to only a few hundred individuals and the IUCN has stated “that unless major steps are taken taken to reverse current trends, the East Asian-Australasian Flyway is likely to experience extinctions and associated collapses of essential and valuable ecological services in the near future.” Through satellite imagery, animations and on the ground footage this film visualizes the scale and speed of changes that have occurred along the Yellow Sea’s coastlines in recent years. This film is also available in Korean, Mandarin, Japanese and Russian.

The Arctic and North Passages
 
01:59
The loss of sea ice, due to global climate change, in the Arctic has opened up new shipping lanes and access to natural resources. Satellites, such as SARAL/AltiKa, can monitor the ice thickness and extent. This information can then be used to track sea ice and forecast ocean currents and other parameters that will aid in reducing risk in shipping lanes and oil platforms, and thus help in the prevention of natural and man-made disasters.
