History books tell us how great the Roman empire was, they use the word 'civilized'. Yet, Romans did what neither the Aztec cannibals or Spanish conquistadors didn't do - they turned murder into a sport. This thread is based on -
Roman history is in three parts -
1. First were Roman kings - War leaders who went around smashing people. Then the seventh king (seriously named Lucius Superbus) started smashing his own people so..
2. Kings were thrown out in 509 BC and people evolved a system - Republic.
This was around the same time kingdom of Magadha was rising in ancient Bihar. Romans, however decided one strong leader was better for smashing other people so..
3. They created 'Emperor' with an 'empire' who smashed everyone in sight, and many who were out of sight too.

Reportage from October's #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth for the lovely folx @labhopping.
Random projected pride in #ISRO should translate also to caring about how India's top scientific institutes are set up. Such conditions are not conducive to good science. Please read, share.
@labhopping #Suicide in #Indianscience isn't an aberration & we need to question the socioeconomic structures that set it up this way. From rampant #casteism to #Islamophobia (particularly in the wake of #Kashmir occupation) and gendered harassment--the accounts were deeply upsetting
All this plus institutes like the #IITs, #IISc are protected by media gags on students and faculty who fear being expelled if they speak publicly about these issues. Deep gratitude to everyone who spoke w me regardless. Y'all brave and resilient and this is how we get to hope.

Kartarpur Corridor - ISI's Bridge to #Khalistan

While the intention appears to be noble the larger Pakistani plot behind #KartarpurCorridor is ISI's Bridge to #Khalistan directed at the #Khalistan2020 Referendum

So tomorrow #NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter circling Moon since 2009 is scheduled to fly over #Chandrayaan2 #Vikram lander's site. Interestingly #LRO was close enough during Vikram's landing to gather data about maneuver using its Lyman-Alpha Mapping Project instrument.
"As a matter of fact during descent of #Chandrayaan2, the
Lyman-Alpha Mapping Project #LAMP instrument was observing the changes in the exosphere of #Moon as a result of the rocket effluence coming down"

- Jay Jenkins, Office of Exploration at NASA's Science Mission Directorate
#ISRO lost contact with #Chandrayaan2's #Vikram during final stages of its descent. An unexplained wobble may have caused Vikram to go off course, data suggests. Descent was to last around 15 minutes. But around 11 minutes after Vikram began its decent, things went haywire.

In a more stunning fallout @pallavabagla has been capturing pictures of Women Scientists & selling it to Getty Image. #PallavaBagla #ISRO #KSivan #Chandrayaan3 #NDTVWithPakistan #IndiaWithISRO #VikramLander Pics that are in Getty contributed by this Disgraceful man. @PMOIndia
All these pictures have similar details and price difference..

As a science writer, I've not covered a govt more anti science than the current one. Nothing the PM does, incl an insincere photo-op hug, changes how badly his govt hurt scientific temperament in India. Some eg: 
#ISRO
His first move in 2014 was to merge HIV prog with the ministry & set up a separate ministry to promote Homeopathy, among other unscientific things.. and it now routinely peddles crappy treatment for everything from HIV to diabetes...
#MinimumGovernance

Or this "dangerously misguided" policy to patent cow urine. (You cant want scientific prog & cow urine for cancer..is all I'm saying.)

After dozens of murders of high assets in key nuclear, tech n science installations, people like Bagla should be quizzed n jailed for breach of security n economic criminality

India's #VikramLander failure is being debated here depending on which angle one is taking: consider.
1, as a scientific/tech achievement, final-phase failure aside, it is a big leap and shows #ISRO in a good light; 2, it also shows that #India is producing an impressive array>
> of scientists and engineers; that should be a matter of concern for us; 3, space is one of the frontiers in future wars, which will be tech-, and capital-intensive, not labour-intensive; 4, we should take serious stock of the education we are imparting and whether we can keep>
> up or, better still, overtake. i don’t have to say what it means if we can’t…
now to the failure: we are adversaries; #Kashmiris are under lockdown and being oppressed. while we should never underestimate the adversary, there’s absolutely no reason why we shouldn’t be happy>

#ProudOfISRO ISRO can take risks, learn from failures and script success stories. Great institution. Our risk-averse corporate sectors who invest in bonds instead of capex need to learn from ISRO.
"India had to develop the lander indigenously after Russia, which was to build the lander under the original plan, backed out. Given the mass of the lander, the propulsion system on-board was required to produce thrust of around 3.2 to 4 Kilonewton. ++
++To make such an engine, ISRO would have had to go back to the drawing board — a move that could have delayed the mission.
ISRO decided to use the existing technology instead."

How the shameless #DMK Govt shunted away #ISRO Launchpad from #Kanniyakumari to #Sriharikota? Shocked to know? But going by DMK's track-record this is nothing. So it was clear to ISRO that to launch polar satellites launchpad has to be located on the Eastern Coast. Hence they (1)
selected Kanniyakumari TN. #VikramSarabhai takes an appointment to meet then TN CM DMK's #Annadurai, Annadurai suffers backpain & hence asks DMK Minister Mathiyalagan to meet #Sarabhai. Mathiyalagan comes fully drunk to meet who? Father of Indian Space Program #VikramSarabhai (2)
& talks rubbish + makes unreasonable demands(u know what?) to #Sarabhai. Frustrated #VikramSarabhai leaves TN in agonly & ISRO ticks off #Sriharikota for #Kanniyakumari This shocking treachery of DMK is revealed in Scientist #NambiNarayanan's recent book.

Neeraj Verma & Rashmi travelled all the way to from #Nagpur to #Sriharikota to witness the historic #Chandrayaan2 take off. I asked them what do they do for a living? Their answer amazed me, We are science activists (vigyaanan sevak) said the couple. Like how? #IndiaMoonMission
The couple travelled more than 1100 KM's to reach #Sriharikota from their village near #Nagpur border to be a part of @isro #Chandrayan2 launch

The couple travelled for more than 20 hours & reached #Sriharikota on 15th July, but the launch was called off in the last minute
They went back to their village & by the time they reached home the next launch date was announced

The couple left home again and travelled all the way back to #Sriharikota just to be there to witness the historic #MoonMission2 launch

Those who are saying WHY #PMMODI IS TAKING THE CREDIT? Let me give a point by point rebuttal. #MissionShakti #ASAT #DRDO #ISRO

1. ISRO never got attention by UPA Govt. But the Modi Government granted 50% more budget in ISRO Budget just in first 2 months

ndtv.com/india-news/at-…
2. It never stopped at that phase. Modi Government kept increasing the budget every year.

Currently the Budget of ISRO = 11,538.26 crores INR for the financial year 2019-20
3. During UPA time ISRO's budget hardly increased. From around 4000 Cr in 2009 to 5500 Cr in 2014.

2012-13, a sum of Rs. 5,615 crore had been allocated
