DRDO officials led by PK Singh had visited the site and held discussions with local officials regarding various aspects of the memorial. A total of Rs 50 crore had been allocated for the memorial and a knowledge centre, they had said. In the first phase, Rs 15 crore would be spent on the construction of the memorial on a 27,000 sq ft area.

It would cover the burial site and a statue of Kalam. The memorial would be ready for inauguration on July 27 next year, the second death anniversary of the former President. The construction of knowledge centre will be taken up in the second phase, they added.

NASA releases new images A Day on Pluto, a Day on Charon

Pluto’s day is 6.4 Earth days long. The images were taken by the Long Range Reconnaissance Imager (LORRI) and the Ralph/Multispectral Visible Imaging Camera as the distance between New Horizons and Pluto decreased from 5 million miles (8 million kilometers) on July 7 to 400,000 miles (about 645,000 kilometers) on July 13. The more distant images contribute to the view at the 3 o’clock position, with the top of the heart-shaped, informally named Tombaugh Regio slipping out of view, giving way to the side of Pluto that was facing away from New Horizons during closest approach on July 14.  The side New Horizons saw in most detail – what the mission team calls the “encounter hemisphere” – is at the 6 o’clock position.

These images and others like them reveal many details about Pluto, including the differences between the encounter hemisphere and the so-called “far side” hemisphere seen only at lower resolution. Dimples in the bottom (south) edge of Pluto’s disk are artifacts of the way the images were combined to create these composites.

These images and others like them reveal many details about Charon, including how similar looking the encounter hemisphere is to the so-called “far side” hemisphere seen only at low resolution – which is the opposite of the situation at Pluto. Dimples in the bottom (south) edge of Charon’s disk are artifacts of the way the New Horizons images were combined to create these composites.
