NASA spacecraft to land like helicopters

In an attempt to enable its future space capsules to land like helicopters, NASA has tested a new rotor landing system. The objective is to replace parachutes with spinning blades to enable soft and controlled landings on land instead of the ocean.

  • The rotor re-entry and landing system is designed for capsule-inspired spacecraft like the Orion Multipurpose Crew Vehicle that should fly before the end of the decade.
  • The landing system’s process is called auto-rotation, and while it’s been proven on helicopters it’s never been tried on spacecraft.
  • The biggest challenge being faced by design Engineers getting is getting the blades deployed the right way.

The system for transport of Canadian Uranium to India finalized b/w Indian and Canada

India and Canada developed a mechanism for transport image of the Canadian Uranium to India. Thus, India succeeded in clearing the mistrust generated on the Canadian side after the nuclear explosion from India in 1974.

Both the sides were successful inking the agreement on the mechanism of shipment of the Canadian Uranium to India for the first time after 1974. The nuclear cooperation agreement was inked b/w the two nations two years ago but their remained hurdles of mistrust on the Canadian side of how would India use the uranium provided by Canada in its nuclear power plants. After crossing over the hurdles it’s now believed that the shipment of Uranium to India would benefit India as it would bring millions of dollars in the new business and would create quality jobs in India.
