In a historic achievement, India’s Chandrayaan-3 spacecraft successfully landed near the Moon’s challenging south pole, becoming the first nation to do so and fourth nation to achieve a controlled lunar landing. The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) celebrated this triumph after a previous unsuccessful attempt in 2019. Chandrayaan-3, launched in July, carried a landing module with a robotic rover named Pragyan. This feat boosts India’s global scientific and technological standing, inspiring further lunar and interplanetary missions. The lunar south pole’s significance lies in the potential presence of water ice and insights into the early Solar System. India’s success may catalyze international collaboration and investment in the private space sector, fueling innovation across various domains.

A new study published in the Journal of Dental Research has found that common oral infections, such as periodontal disease and tooth decay, are associated with an increased risk of cardiometabolic diseases. These conditions, which include heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, are often linked to inflammation, and the study’s findings suggest that oral infections may […]
Extremely thin ceramic coatings can completely change the properties of technical components. Coatings are used, for example, to increase the resistance of metals to heat or corrosion. Coating processes play a role for large turbine blades as well as for extremely stressed tools in production technology. TU Wien (Vienna) has now investigated what determines the […]
