water on the moon

The Indian Space Research Organisation(ISRO) announced in September that the country’s first unmanned lunar mission Chandrayaan-I found evidence of water on the moon within a month after it was launched in October,2008, to make the first such discovery. NASA had also announced in September that it found evidence of water.
The crashing spaceship was launched in June along with an orbiter that is now mapping the lunar surface. LCROSS, short for Lunar Crater Observation and Sensing Satellite and pronounced L—Cross, is on a collision course with the moon, attached to an empty 2.2—tonne rocket that helped get the probe off the ground.
The lunar crash kicked up at least 25 gallons (95 liters) and that's only what scientists could see from the plumes of the impact.

If the country’s top research institutes are embedded into university campuses, it will give students a direct experience of cutting-edge research from a very early stage, according to Nobel Prize winner Venkatraman Ramakrishnan.
It would be a good idea to embed research institutes inside university campuses, and perhaps also integrate research more into universities,”
“I have always felt that for research to improve, students need to be exposed to the very best research at an early stage." he said.

Ural Mountains

The Ural Mountains runs roughly north-south through western Russia. They are usually considered the natural boundary between Europe and Asia.
The Urals extend 2,498 km from the Kazakh steppes along the northern border of Kazakhstan to the coast of the Arctic ocean.
Its highest peak is Mount Narodnaya.
The Urals have large deposits of gold, platinum, coal, iron, nickel, silver, oil and other minerals.

Rising sea levels

By 2050 the number of people living in delta cities is set to increase by as much as 70%, experts suggest, vastly increasing the number of those at risk.
Glaciers: If the world's mountain glaciers and icecaps melt, sea levels will rise by an estimated 0.5m
Thermal expansion: The expansion of warming oceans was the main factor contributing to sea level rise, in the 20th Century, and currently accounts for more than half of the observed rise in sea levels.
Ice sheets: These vast reserves contain billions of tonnes of frozen water - if the largest of them (the East Antarctic Ice Sheet) melts, the global sea level will rise by an estimated 64m.
Rising temperatures have also caused ocean waters to expand - the main cause of sea level rise in the 20th Century.
The weakening of the Gulf Stream coupled with the gravitational effects of being closer to the North Pole mean waters in the northern hemisphere are experiencing the biggest rise.
Our children and those as yet unborn deserve to live in a world that is healthier, more equitable and which offers a sustainable future .
