Neutrinos

Neutrinos are electrically neutral, elementary weakly interacting subatomic particles with half-integer spin. They belong to the lepton family. Neutrinos were first proposed by Swiss scientist Wolfgang Pauli, are the second most widely occurring particle in the universe, only second to photons, the particle which makes up light. Neutrinos are similar to the more familiar electron, …

Shakti microprocessor

It is India’s first indigenous microprocessor. Develop by IIT Madras. It has been developed under project partly funded by Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology (MeitY), as part of two-decade-old efforts to develop indigenous microprocessors. Significance: It will reduce dependency on imported microchips especially in communication and defence sectors and thus eliminate risk of cyber-attacks. …

Compressed Bio-gas

Bio-gas is produced naturally through process of anaerobic decomposition from waste and bio-mass sources like agriculture residue, cattle dung, municipal solid waste, sugarcane press mud, sewage treatment plant (STP) waste, etc.   It is called CBG after biogas is purified and compressed, which has pure methane content of over 95%. CBG is exactly similar to …
