Technological advancements are just so prodigious that one is in utmost awe all the time. India surely doesn’t seem to back off in this bewitching “Tech-Race”. And in yet another significant move, a scientist from Kerala, A. Seema has come up with a bra which can detect Breast Cancer.

India witnesses high rates of breast cancer incidence every year. There are huge, underlying deficits in the procedural as well as infrastructural facilities for breast cancer. Addressing all these shortcomings, a six-member team, headed by Dr A Seema of the Centre for Materials for Electronics Technology has invented a path breaking device in the form of a bra that can detect this form of cancer at a very cheap rate. The bra is embedded with sensors that measure the skin temperature and also create thermal imaging to detect cancerous cells.

How Did The Initial Idea Come Up?!

The idea behind such a type of bra was seeded back in 2014, and now after years of research along with four years of developing the bra finally got approved through successful clinical trials conducted at Malabar Cancer Centre. The one-of-a-kind bra is embedded with sensors that map the skin temperature of the breasts and detects the presence of any abnormalities. This can then serve as the basis for patients to take further course of action. Earlier, the President of India Ram Nath Kovind honoured her with Nari Shakti Puraskar for A Seema’s outstanding contribution to human welfare.

Chandrayaan-2 Spins History In Lunar Orbit

India’s spacecraft to the moon Chandrayaan-2 successfully entered the lunar orbit on Tuesday, clearing a crucial move for it to land on the moon’s surface on September 7.

The spacecraft will hover around the moon’s orbit for the next few weeks, before it is slowly lowered onto the lunar surface. Chandrayaan-2 is an integrated spacecraft comprising an orbiter, a lander – Vikram named after the father of India’s space programme Vikram Sarabhai and Pragyan, a rover that will roll out out once the lander touches ground.

India’s first moon mission Chandrayaan-1 suffered damage to a few instruments after it faced issues with the heat shield of the spacecraft on entry into the lunar orbit. Space scientists had attributed to the lack of adequate information on the heat generated due to friction when entering the moon’s orbit, a crucial data the US declined to offer. This time around, Isro officials had enough data from its first mission to make the lunar entry smooth.

“We did what all humanly was possible, but at the same time since it is new mission and it is a terrifying moment for us,” said K Sivan, Chairman of Isro.

A series of orbit manoeuvres will be performed on Chandrayaan 2 spacecraft to enable it to enter its final orbit passing over the lunar poles at a distance of about 100 km from the moon’s surface, Indian Space Research Organisation said.

“The landing day is fixed and the location of the Moon is fixed, but our launching day delayed to achieve the same landing day, we worked on the time based on that,” Isro chairman K Sivan said. “After landing images will be made available by the Rover”.
