Recently, the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) which has the largest particle accelerator in the world known as the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), has published a report that presents LHC’s larger and more powerful potential successor, the Future Circular Collider (FCC). Many criticized that the super collider which is expected to cost billions of dollars is not going to be a good investment. However, it has to be noted that, the same kind of criticisms had overwhelmed the LHC project until it discovered the Higgs Boson.
In this article, you will learn every basic thing related to the particle physics and the associated research, so that you will be able to better understand the future news related to the particle physics.
ISRO has launched GSAT-29 communication satellite successfully on board GSLV-MK III D2. With this launch, GSLV-MK III is considered to be operational for space missions like Chandrayaan II and Gaganyaan. Gaganyaan mission was announced by Prime Minister in his Independence Day speech, that ISRO will be sending its first human spaceflight mission into space by 2022.

ISRO has launched GSAT-29 communication satellite successfully on board GSLV-Mk III D2 from Satish Dhawan Space Centre at Sriharikota. With this launch, GSLV Mk III completed the test flights and is declared operational, thus joining the ranks of the working vehicles such as PSLV. Besides, this launch serves as a major boost for Chandrayaan-II (moon) and Gaganyaan (manned) missions.
Recently a private company in Chengdu, China has announced its plans to put a “fake moon” or illumination satellite into space by 2020 in order to brighten the night sky replacing streetlights and lower electricity costs. The fake moon will be 8 eight times brighter than the moon which is a cause of concern.
ISRO will soon carry out another major test for its Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV) in 2019. ISRO conducted first RLV test in 2016 which was successful. The final version will take at least 10-15 years to get ready.
