Discovery of Narrow-Line Seyfert 1 Galaxy

Astronomers discovered a new active galaxy. That galaxy has been identified as the farthest gamma-ray-emitting galaxy discovered so far.

This active galaxy is called the Narrow-line Sever 1 (NLS1) galaxy and is about 31 billion light-years away. It opens the way for the exploration of more such galaxies that emit gamma rays.

Scientists from ARIES, Autonomous Research Institute, Department of Science and Technology (DST) of the Government of India, in collaboration with researchers from other institutions, studied about 25,000 luminous active galactic nuclei (AGN) through the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) and discovered a unique object, The object emits high-energy gamma rays with a high redshift (greater than 1). They identified it as the NLS1 galaxy emitting gamma rays, which is a rare entity in space.

SDSS is the main optical imaging and spectroscopy survey of astronomical objects in operation over the past 20 years. It was founded by the University of Chicago.

Government to try out digital farming in 100 villages

 

The agriculture ministry has selected 100 villages in six states — Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat, Haryana, Rajasthan and Andhra Pradesh — for pilot projects on digital farming, leveraging the use of technology, data and artificial intelligence (AI) in supporting farmers in multiple activities. It has signed an MoU with Microsoft India to develop farmers’ interface for post-harvest management and distribution.

 

This project will reduce input costs for farmers and make farming easy. It is proposed to undertake similar pilot projects with other public and private players to create a vibrant digital agro-ecosystem in the country.

 

Microsoft India has joined its local partner, CropData, to do the pilot projects in 100 villages across 10 districts in six states. Digital technology and data will be used to assist farmers in taking right and cost-effective decisions.

 

These three states see highest EV sales in India

 

India’s electric mobility sector is on a steady road to recovery, post a lockdown-induced dip in sales. The sector registered nearly 1.35 lakh EVs in FY21, according to CEEW Centre for Energy Finance’s (CEEW-CEF) electric mobility dashboard.

The updated dashboard released on Wednesday highlighted that electric vehicle (EV) registrations formed 0.88 % of all vehicle registrations in the last financial year – the highest share ever achieved. The Indian automobile market has registered over 6.38 lakh EVs since 2011-12.

 

The mobility dashboard shows that the Faster Adoption and Manufacturing of Electric Vehicles (FAME) in India – II scheme has achieved only 4.25% of its sales targets till now. One major barrier could be that many potential EV buyers are unaware of the financial incentives available to them such as user subsidies and significant exemptions from road tax and registration fees.
