Finnish Formula One driver Kimi Raikkonen registered his first victory in last five years by finishing at the top of the podium in the United States (US) Grand Prix on Sunday.

It is the longest victory gap in the history of Formula One, breaking the earlier record which was held by Riccardo Patrese of Italy.

Expressing his content over the win, the 39-year-old admitted that it has been a long wait for him.

“It’s been a long wait, but here we are,” CNN quoted Raikkonen, as saying.

The victory of the Ferrari driver extended Briton driver Lewis Hamilton’s wait for his fifth F1 title as the latter finished the race at the number three spot.

Raikkonen, who recently announced that he would be leaving Ferrari by the end of 2018 season, made a World Championship winning debut for Ferrari in 2007. He left the team at the end of 2009, spending 2010 and 2011 with National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) competing in the World Rally Championship.

He then returned to Formula 1 with Lotus in 2012, where he spent two seasons. He rejoined Ferrari in 2014 and was associated with the team since then.

AHMEDABAD (Gujarat): Ahmedabad-based Physical Research Laboratory (PRL) has developed three payloads for India’s second lunar exploration mission Chandrayaan-2, which unlike Chandrayaan-1 will include an orbiter, a lander and a rover.

While the country’s first lunar probe was launched in October 2008, the schedule of the proposed Chandrayaan-2 lift-off is being eagerly awaited.

“There are three payloads developed by the PRL for Chandrayaan-2. The orbiter will have a solar X-ray monitor developed by PRL. It will monitor x-rays coming from the Sun and X-rays being generated on the surface of the moon,” said PRL Director Dr. Anil Bhardwaj.

He was speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the 15th International Symposium on Equatorial Aeronomy, organised at the main PRL campus here.

PRL, a unit of Department of Space, was founded in 1947.

“On the lander, there will be Chandra’s Surface Thermophysical Experiment (ChaSTE). This is a probe which will measure the temperature beneath the surface by getting inside the surface of the moon. It will do so after the lander lands on moon,” the director said, adding that this equipment will also be developed by PRL.

(ChaSTE) is one of the science experiments proposed to conduct in lunar surface in Chandrayaan-2 mission. (AGENCIES)

WASHINGTON: Stargazers can now spot constellations of their favourite modern legends like ‘The Little Prince’, ‘Godzilla’, ‘Star Trek’, and ‘Hulk’ in the night-sky.

However, these constellations are not made up or stars. It is an astronomic artwork of gamma rays to mark a decade long service of Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope, NASA has established 21 gamma-ray constellations to salute the modern mythos, reports Japan Today.

“Developing these unofficial constellations was a fun way to highlight a decade of Fermi’s accomplishments,” said Julie McEnery, the Fermi project scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. “One way or another, all of the gamma-ray constellations have a tie-in to Fermi science.”

Since July 2008, Fermi’s Large Area Telescope (LAT) has been scanning the entire sky each day, mapping and measuring sources of gamma rays, the highest-energy light in the universe. The emission may come from pulsars, nova outbursts, the debris of supernova explosions and giant gamma-ray bubbles located in our own galaxy, or supermassive black holes and gamma-ray bursts the most powerful explosions in the cosmos in others.  (AGENCIES)

This was stated by former Sri Lankan minister and former cricket captain Arjun Ranatunga while addressing a press conference in Colombo on Monday.

Ranatunga, who accompanied Sri Lankan Prime minister on his India visit last week, had discussions with finance minister Arun Jaitley and former BCCI President Anurag Thakur in this regard.

The minister said that India will also assist Sri Lankan cricket board in framing a legislation to fight corruption and fixing charges.

His statement came as Sri Lankan cricket is under probe for corruption charges and former skipper Sanath Jayasurya was given a charge sheet by ICC for not cooperating in a corruption investigation.

Sri Lanka has suffered several defeats at home and abroad which has put the board and selection team under scanner.

Sri Lankan cricket board is also to hold elections to choose new members and the minister called upon the need for adopting a new constitution.
