Researchers Discover Three Super-massive Black Holes Merging Together in Our Nearby Universe

New Delhi, August 28, 2021: Indian researchers have discovered three supermassive black holes from three galaxies merging together to form a triple active galactic nucleus, a compact region at the center of a newly discovered galaxy that has a much-higher-than-normal luminosity. This rare occurrence in our nearby Universe indicates that small merging groups are ideal […]

Indigenously developed powders from unused scrape materials to be used for the repair of aero-engine components made of Ni-based super alloy

New Delhi, August 25, 2021: Indian Scientists have for the first time repaired aero-engine components through emerging additive manufacturing or 3D printing technique called Directed Energy Deposition process that can significantly reduce repair costs and overhaul time. The indigenously made powders suitable for the additive manufacturing process called the Directed Energy Deposition process. Ni-based superalloy is […]

Multi-Storeys Constructed with Thermocol can be Earthquake-resistant Buildings?

New Delhi, August 24, 2021: Thermocol could be the material of the future for construction of earthquake-resistant buildings, with thermal insulation and could also save energy required to develop construction materials. Researchers at IIT Roorkee have found that thermocol or Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) is used as a composite material in core of reinforced concrete sandwich, […]

Traditional Pineapple Agro-forestry Systems can Address Twin Challenges of Climate Change and Biodiversity Loss

New Delhi, August 21, 2021: Pineapple-based agroforestry, traditionally practiced by ethnic “Hmar” tribe in southern Assam, can be a sustainable alternative to jhum cultivation for the North East India. This traditional practice can provide twin solutions for climate change and biodiversity loss, according to a new study. Jhum cultivation, also called swidden agriculture, the dominant agricultural […]

Visceral Leishmaniasis: Indian researchers develop non-invasive option

New Delhi, August 20, 2021: Indian researchers have developed a non-invasive, easy to administer, cost-effective, and patient compliant potential therapeutic strategy against Visceral Leishmaniasis, a neglected tropical disease. Their strategy based on nano carrier-based oral drugs coated with Vitamin B12 enhanced oral bioavailability and efficacy of the therapy by more than 90%. Visceral Leishmaniasis (VL) […]
