INDIA beware!
Did #Cheen really think they will be able to fool #Israel? LISTENING devices in THERMAL MUGs! 😄
These were gifted to Israeli govt by Chinese embassy.
Shin bet (internal spy agency of Israel) has taken up the investigation!
Reminiscent of #ISRO- cheeni #OPPO deal!

Earlier in Israel Chinese students wr apparently also tasked to spy. Nothing new! CONFUCIUS institute is known to carry out such acts across the world. Confucius institute is still active in Mumbai. Know more about it in one of our

We had also reported 2 years ago on how an #ISRO’s office in #Kolkata is located right next to infamous cheeni company. Read here 👇…

#ISRO truck blocked in Kerala!
Reason why India’s TIP (Kerala) is kept so rogue! #PortStates
Pls read d thread!🙏

On sunday workers union demanded “gawking wages” for an ISRO truck.
A practice where headloaders charge money for STARING at people loading/unloading cargo.🙄
2/10 It’s a banned practice yet workers union protested for it. This is jst ONE example of hw c0mmies work. They create a ruckus when not provided gawking wages. A #sinister practise to make KERALA an UNDESIRABLE location for investments.Ports of KERALA face similar issues.
3/10 Why ports of Kerala r so important? India is well placed geographically and since ancient times we hv hd ports which helped India prosper. Why did #VascoDeGama arrive in Kerala? Kerala was always an opening to Indian subcontinent. Thats why! (Pic: yozivag)

And…. it took off today. 👍 #ISRO has posted update: “Performance of 1st and 2nd stages was normal. However, Cryogenic Upper Stage ignition did not happen due to technical anomaly. The mission couldn't be accomplished as intended.” Will have to wait to see the impact of this.
ISRO’s GSLV failed to put EOS-03 in orbit. This launch was to be followed by other launches.
This was the 14th launch of GSLV and 4th failure. Last time GSLV developed anomaly in 2010.…

This is how #JoeBiden hurt #ISRO. 👇There were back to back attempts to sabotage ISRO’s projects. My video about—Joe Biden, ISRO & a SPY RACKET.👇 This man if elected will not jst side with China, bt will impede INDIA’s growth. The spy racket is a proof!!
This is y Joe Biden is wrong for India.

Now the question is was there an attempt to sabotage Chandryaan-2's launch also? Only time will tell. Image
Adding this tweet thread here, coz it proves how Joe has been consistently pro-China.

ISRO’s #Chandrayaan1 Reveals Rusting of #Moon; Scientists Point at #Earth's Atmosphere as Possible Cause…

(📸: Shuai Li)
Data from the #ISRO has revealed that the Earth’s natural satellite Moon might be rusting. The new research suggests that the moon is turning slightly red, indicating the formation of a reddish-black mineral form of iron named hematite on its surface, particularly at the poles.
The formation of rust or iron oxide can be attributed to the presence of two key elements—water and oxygen—when they come in contact with iron.

#Chandrayaan2 | @isro’s Chandrayaan 2 identifies craters that may have water after mapping 4 million square kilometres of the Moon in its first year…

By @pabsgill Image
🛰️It’s been a year since #Chandrayaan2 has been in orbit around the Moon.

In that time, the eight instruments it has onboard have been scouting the lunar surface for craters that could hold water and landing sites for future missions.
🛰️#Chandrayaan2’s Terrain Mapping Camera took photos of nearly 4 million square kilometres of the Moon’s surface.

The Terrain Mapping Camera - 2 (TMC -2) completed 220 orbits of the Moon and took images of nearly 4 million square kilometres of its surface. Image

#OnThisDay in 1919 was born Vikram Sarabhai, the father of India's space programme. But Sarabhai was much more than just a scientist, living an extraordinarily full life. Read on to learn more about him! #VikramSarabhai #ISRO #India #history #funwithfundas (1/23)
According to a popular (unconfirmed) story, Rabindranath Tagore, a part-time phrenologist, seeing the baby Sarabhai's large and unusually shaped forehead, pronounced that "this boy will achieve great things". #tagore (2/23)
For those wondering, phrenology is a pseudoscientific study of the shape and bumps on the skull to predict a person's character and traits. It was very popular in the 19th century. (3/23)

July 22, 2020 marks the one-year anniversary of the launch of #Chandrayaan2, India’s second lunar exploration mission developed by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).
Initially scheduled to launch on July 14, 2019, this mega-mission launch was aborted and rescheduled with just an hour to go due to a technical glitch.

(1/7) A @ncaor_goa study: Glacier research is so treacherous at the “3rd Pole-the largest mass of ice & glaciers outside the #polar region”. Scientists in the Indian Himalayas [6Kft -17Kft] live on low oxygen, zip lines & paths blocked by giant boulder. Image
1/3 of the glaciers of the Hindu Kush #Himalayas [2175 mile long] are in danger. “We haven’t even scratched the surface in understanding how fast the glaciers are melting & what happens next” says Sharma, a glaciologist with @ncaor_goa Image
The mass balance of six glaciers of the many in the Hindu Kush #Himalayas range has alarmingly squeezed in the last decade to 86.9 sq. miles in 2019 from 115.8 sq. miles in 2009 & there are thousands like these.

Many have asked about the status of re-establishing contact with #VikramLander. I see #NASA DSN continues to send signals toward the moon aimed at Vikram, with DSN54 presently active. No reports of signals heard professionally or by amateurs.
The next major event is unfolding now as @LRO_NASA's orbital plane is arriving over the #VikramLander site. As the lander was only suppose to survive the first lunar day the chances of recovering the mission, assuming it is intact and comms are reestablished, are dwindling fast.
Given the lack of communications, the results of the @LRO_NASA data could verify the condition of the lander and perhaps provide valuable data to #ISRO for the next landing attempt.

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.
