Void Journalism

Published

on

Bollywood has been an industry entertaining us for ages now and it’s not a secret that the industry had hidden truths since then. From June 14 when we got the unfortunate news of Sushant singh rajput’s death it left all of us shattered, and as it was a mysterious death it turned out to run into the headlines of news channels. Our country had enough with the corona news on TV channels where people got goosebumps by rapidly seeing the news of people dying due to corona and to that the news channels got one more score to increase the TRP. Justice is important and social media, news channels could be a great shoulder to lean on if justice needs to be prevailed. Which some of our indian channels did stand for, but lost the humanity and just craved to cover the updates.There’s no need of highlighting, all of us know how disgraceful the media has turned. Why do people forget that jobs are just part of life and deep down we are humans and should be treated equally with respect. For sure, the information should be passed on to the audience of whatever has gone wrong and they should raise voice against the culprits which they are raising, but they have lost the silver lining of innocence which journalism has with it. SSR case was about covering up his murder mystery which is not what certainly is being covered up, instead vigorously there is this spread of negativity amongst the audience for the Bollywood industry who have been entertaining us since decades. Any person who consumes drugs is the one who is doing the crime, no matter what profession that person is into so it’s not about our Bollywood but the one who consume it, who should get arrested and this is the duty of our NCB and not the journalism media. Same goes with the SSR case, the movement for CBI investigation became global, we waited for so long and finally got the CBI investigation for SSR, the CBI is the one who should look into this matter and let us all know the truth and the news channels are just a bridge between us and the CBI for passing the information but the news channels seems to frighten us more with so called “mirch masala”. The social media platforms like Instagram and Twitter where anonymous people spread hate into the comments who have no idea what actually happened!? Who have just seen these stars in films and not known them in person, just by typing rubbish against anyone is so a sign of illiteracy. And on top of that are the YouTube channels who are giving out fake news on this current topic without not even researching on that particular topic, these people are not only spreading hate but also defaming YouTube platform where 80 to 85 % of people in india are present. They are the one who are harm against the YouTube community .They add nonsense headlines on their videos and just for some views and likes people loose their self respect. Of course India is a democratic country and each has his/her right of speech, but we also should not forget integrity and peace. We should let the people in charge and authorities do their duty so that the culprits may get arrested and the journalism of india should take a step towards humanity while passing out information to the audience and not pass whatever predictions they want behind the question mark ❓

OSIRIS-REx: NASA’s spacecraft to unveil origin of life?

Published

on

What is the origin of life ?. The monumental question that became a debate between scientist and  philosophers from decades. Now in 2020 ,NASA’s Spacecraft OSIRIS-REx is on the way to find the answer.

NASA’s Origin,Spectral Interpretation, Resource Indentification and Security-Regolith Explorer or OSIRIS-REx was launched in September of 2016 with a mission to collect samples of particles from asteroids , Specifically NASA is focusing on B-type Asteroids. B-type Asteroids
are the primitive one meaning they were formed nearly 4.5 billion years ago when our earth was formed and hasn’t changed much since then. This make B-type Asteroids on focus because they could contain Carbon based Organic molecules similar to those that led life on earth.

After Spotting a B-type Asteroid called 1999 RQ36 also known as Bennu ( an Egyptian bird deity) . Its diameter is about 500 meters i.e approximately 3 times bigger than statue of unity.
Since December 2018 , OSIRIS-REx has been surveying the surface of bennu , Mapping its surface and tracking the spin by orbiting around it. In 2019 it observed clusters of particles or dust coming up from the surface of asteroid. It also found that Bennu is densely covered in boulders which astronomers expect to be smoother. This discovery complicates OSIRIS-REx main mission of landing and collecting sample. Through all the surveys OSIRIS-REx indentified four possible sites where space craft could land. From all these four sites nightingale is found to be more promising than others.

NASA planned two rehearsals before actual landing to make sure everything would go smoothly. First rehearsal in April 2020 went off without any problem. Second rehearsal was pushed back to August 2020 due to corona virus pandemic. Second rehearsal went upto three steps of the sampling sequence but couldn’t collect the sample, this held because of connectivity issues as it takes 16 minutes for radio signal to reach that far. Hence scientists concluded that mission must be done autonomously by the space craft itself. The on board navigation system on Second rehearsal gave much detailed information about Bennu that convinced scientist to go further on mission . By collecting the data required for the mission now the next step is to go all the way up to collect the sample from Bennu.The first attempt after two rehearsals is scheduled on 20th October 2020.

If all goes well , OSIRIS-REx will send the sample back to earth arriving in September 2023. This sample would give scientist to look at very first piece of our solar system. This might give our answer on the question that what is origin of life? , Only if we found organic compound that led life on earth. To get our answers we need to wait till 2023.

Provisions of the Bill:

The Bill amends the Aircraft Act,1934 the bill regulates the manufacture, possession, use, operation, sale, import, and export of civil aircraft and licensing of aerodromes.
The Bill will provide statuary power to the regulatory institutions of Civil Aviation like the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), the Bureau of Civil Aviation Security (BCAS), and the Aircraft Accident Investigation Bureau (AAIB).

The Civil Aviation Minister quoted “the amendment was necessary for light of the recent growth of the civil aviation sector,
DGCA: The bill entitles the DGCA to act as a watchdog. The DGCA will foresee the regulatory functions as mentioned in the bill for the growth of the civil aviation sector. The DGCA can levy up to Rs 1crore as a penalty on airlines, airports, and other key aviation entities.
BCAS: The BCAS will be carrying out regulatory and oversight functions on civil aviation security.
AAIB: To carry out investigation related to aircraft accidents and incidents.
Reasons behind the Amendment
The statuary power that the Bill provides to the civil aviation institutions is likely to help the civil aviation sector to improve India’s safety aviation rankings as recommended by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
The bill intends to increase the fine amount for any violation of rules from RS 10 lakh to Rs 1 Crore for aviation sector stakeholders.
Under the Bill, the central government may cancel the licenses, certificates, or approvals granted to a person under the Act if the person contravenes any provision of the Act.

Exemptions
The aircrafts belonging to the navy, military, and air force of the Republic of India will be exempted from the bill
The extension of the exemption will also be extended to the other armed forces other than these three.
Challenges

The Disinvestment by the government from Air India has resulted in the firm incurring heavy losses (26 crores per day) the pandemic is expected to further increase the number of losses
According to recent data, there has been a rise in the number of near-miss incidents in the airspace, near miss is a close call that has the potential to cause great injury to humans or the environment but does not occur,
The aviation sector faces shortages of Air Traffic Controllers (ATC)
Because of the COVID- 19 pandemics there has been an increase in the drop in demand which has compelled the airlines and its stakeholders to face financial crisis.
