KARACHI: China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) Authority Chairman Lt-Gen (retd) Asim Saleem Bajwa on Tuesday said no power on earth could sabotage the CPEC as it was the country’s national project.
Addressing a ceremony at the Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry (KCCI), he said the CPEC, being a flagship project of the Chinese Belt and Road Initiative, had improved road connectivity between the two countries and would do so further.
On the eastern alignment of CPEC, Bajwa said only one section — Sukkur-Hyderabad — was left which was launched by Prime Minister Imran Khan recently. He said the request for proposals of the project would be completed under public-private partnership and floated within a month and after that the groundwork would begin.

Earth’s continental crust may have emerged 3.7 billion years earlier than scientists had previously estimated. A team of scientists has devised a new way to date ancient chunks of crust and according to their latest research, the age of the continents have been misjudged by half a billion years. A research presented at the virtual European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly 2021 conference, the team showed that by analyzing a mineral called barite, which is a combination of ocean salts and barium released by volcanic ocean vents, they found evidence that Earth’s continental crust was around at least 3.7 billion years ago, much older than previous estimates.

Four astronauts aboard a SpaceX Dragon Crew capsule returned to Earth early Sunday, splashing down off Panama City early Sunday, a NASA Livestream showed.
Boats were retrieving the spacecraft and crew after their six-month mission aboard the International Space Station.
The crew reported they were feeling well, NASA said.
The capsule splashed down at 2:56 am (0656 GMT) in the dark in the Gulf of Mexico off the Florida coast after a six-and-a-half-hour flight from the ISS, images relayed by NASA's WB-57 high-altitude research aircraft showed.

Even at Verizon, the carrier with the most aggressive performance of the mmWave 5G, users with compatible devices spent 0.8 percent of their time on high-speed networks to deliver faster speeds than the low- and mid-range spectrum. The average download speed on MmWave 5G was 232.7 Mbps for AT&T, 215.3 Mbps for T-Mobile and 692.9 Mbps for Verizon.

Geoengineering schemes that can act as 'Plan B' for Earth

Card image cap

Dismissed a decade ago as far-fetched and dangerous, schemes to tame the effects of global warming by engineering the climate have migrated from the margins of policy debates towards centre stage.

"Plan A" refers to solving the problem at its source. But the UN's top climate science body has made it clear that slashing carbon pollution won't be enough to keep Earth from overheating. That has opened the door to a host of geoengineering schemes, from building underwater walls to shore up an Antarctic glacier the size of Britain to injecting a giant sunscreen into the stratosphere.

Cracks on ground not a worry: Assam Geologists | Guwahati News


Image used for representational purpose only
GUWAHATI: Geologists in Assam have said there is nothing to fear as of now though some fissures have appeared on the ground in different parts of the state after an earthquake measuring 6.4 on the Richter scale hit the state on Wednesday morning followed by several aftershocks.
Geologist Nababrot Gogoi told TOI, “Fissures developed due to tectonic movements and sometimes ground water oozes out through these fissures. Sometimes, clay or sand also oozes out with water. It is a natural phenomenon.”
He further added, “If you minutely observe then you will see that the fissures were not developed haphazardly. These were developed in an alignment. Though there is no such danger, the fissures will be very risky if earthquakes continue to occur frequently. A part of the soil may subside and another part may rise. This is called neo-tectonic activity.”

What on earth happened to Ever Given?
World
Sat, Apr 24, 2021
On March 23 this year, a 200-tonne cargo carrier caught the attention of all and sundry amid a pandemic grappling the entire globe. ‘Ever Given’ was stuck in one of the world's most important trade routes Suez Canal, blocking the transit of other vessels and affecting global trade as a consequence. For the next seven days, efforts were underway to dislodge the massive vessel that was causing trade losses in billions of dollars.
Ever Given is a golden class container vessel which is the 13th largest class of container ships in the world today. She is capable of carrying 20124 TEU’s which are 20 foot by 8.5-foot containers when loaded to full capacity.

Warmer ocean temperatures may decrease Saharan dust crossing the Atlantic | Earth


April 29, 2021
Every year millions of tons of dust from the Sahara Desert are swirled up into the atmosphere and carried across the Atlantic. Research suggests that, as the climate changes, Saharan dust transport will decrease.
By Lara Streiff/ NASA’s Earth Science News Team
Every year, millions of tons of dust from the Sahara Desert are swirled up into the atmosphere by easterly trade winds and carried across the Atlantic. The plumes can make their way from the African continent as far as the Amazon rainforest, where they fertilize plant life. New research suggests that, as the climate changes and oceans continue to warm, dust transport will shrink to a 20,000-year minimum within the next century.

Asteroid That Hit Botswana In 2018 May Have Its Origin Dated Back To 22 Million Years Ago
The mysterious asteroid that hit Botswana, Southern Africa in 2018 was a topic of research for quite a while. Today, scientists have finally found its origin.

In 2018, asteroid debris had mysteriously impacted Botswana, Southern Africa. Today, scientists have finally provided a conclusion over what rock did the debris belong to and how it came in contact with Earth. Apparently, tracing its origin was a challenge as the observations picked up only shortly before the debris had contacted Earth. Hence, scientists had to dig down video footage and examine the rock samples, basically take the harder route to finally come to a conclusion. But what is truly surprising is that the debris was found to be originating from an asteroid that astronomers have been monitoring for a while now.
