photo by Prashant Nadkar) Related News Numerous volcanic deposits distributed across the surface of the Moon contain unusually high amounts of trapped water compared with surrounding terrains a new study of satellite data has revealed The study found evidence of water in nearly all of the large ‘pyroclastic’ (fragments of rock formed after volcano eruptions) deposits that had been previously mapped across the Moon’s surface including deposits near the Apollo 15 and 17 landing sites where the water-bearing glass bead samples were collected The finding of water in these ancient deposits which are believed to consist of glass beads formed by the explosive eruption of magma coming from the deep lunar interior bolsters the idea that the lunar mantle is surprisingly water-rich researchers said in a paper published in the journal Nature Geoscience “The key question is whether those Apollo samples represent the bulk conditions of the lunar interior or instead represent unusual or perhaps anomalous water-rich regions within an otherwise ‘dry’ mantle” said lead author Ralph Milliken Associate Professor at the Brown University “By looking at the orbital data we can examine the large ‘pyroclastic’ deposits on the Moon that were never sampled by the Apollo or Luna missions The fact that nearly all of them exhibit signatures of water suggests that the Apollo samples are not anomalous so it may be that the bulk interior of the Moon is wet” Milliken added Scientists first traced amounts of water in 2008 when some of the volcanic glass beads brought back to Earth from the Apollo 15 and 17 missions overturning the previous held assumption that the interior of the Moon had been largely depleted of water and other volatile compounds In 2011 study of tiny crystalline formations within those beads revealed that they actually contain similar amounts of water as some basalts on Earth That suggests that the Moon’s mantle parts of it at least contain as much water as Earth’s For the study scientists used orbital spectrometers to measure the light that bounces off a planetary surface “By looking at which wavelengths of light are absorbed or reflected by the surface scientists can get an idea of which minerals and other compounds are present” the researchers noted For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express AppWritten by Agencies | Washington | Published: August 30 2010 3:57 pm Top News A severe global shortage of radioactive isotopes that enable life-saving medical scans may make healthcare costlier and complicateaccording to experts Medical isotopes are the tiny amounts of short-lived radioactive substances that get injected into patients They then congregate within bone or other tissuesand show up as lit areas in medical scans That method enables 20 million medical scans and other treatmentssuch as targeting cancer cells for destructioneach year Butthe recent shortages have forced physicians to begin cutting back on the procedures “There has been some move away from nuclear medicine procedures to other imaging technologies that involve more radiation to the patient and higher cost” said Robert Atcherdirector of the National Isotope Development Centre under the U S Department of Energy About 80 per cent of the nuclear medicine procedures rely upon the isotope technetium-99mwhich has a “half-life” of just six hours That means the radioactive substance decays by 50 per cent every six hours until it vanisheswhich makes it impossible to stockpileLiveScience reported The global shortage has been attributed to the sudden shutdown of a nuclear reactor in OntarioCanadain May 2009 The reactor produces a third of the world’s medical isotope requirements According to the expertsthis left a shortfall despite three reactors in BelgiumFrance and South Africa stepping up their production “There still have been times in AprilMay and July when their schedules were such that there was virtually no material available” said Atcher “There has been a shift to an older isotope for cardiac imagingbut we have exceeded our ability to produce that one as well” Supplies became even more strained when the High Flux Reactor in the Netherlands went offline in February 2010according to Atcherwho presented a report on the shortage at the 240th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society held this week The shortageAtcher saidhas already led to bad effects for nuclear medicine beyond physicians turning to oldermore expensive procedures For instancemany companies that convert the isotopes for medical applications have ceased to be profitable Nuclear medicine technologists who typically handle the injections isotopes into patients’ bloodstreams and image patients have also suffered cuts in work hours and layoffs A radioactive isotope shortage also threatens activities such as environmental researchoil exploration and regulating nuclear proliferation For nowrescuing nuclear medicine will require major changes enabled by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS)according to Atcher “We need FDA and CMS to enable the expansion of PET (Positron Emission Tomography) imaging by approving radiopharmaceuticals for useand to agree to reimburse for studies using new probes that are much more powerful in the information that they provide”

officers was responsible for spreading canards about him Pal was a true whistleblower and assisted us in solving a series of crimes Top News The career of a police officer is full of incidents and anecdotes but sometimes you need a trigger to jog your memory The recent statement by the director of the CBI that to catch a thief one needs to set a thief on him reminded me of an incident when I was the superintendent of police in Jamshedpur in the mid-1980s I had joined the district replacing a police officer who was straight out of Bollywood and Dabangg in Salman Khan style except even more imposing at 6 feet 3 inches He had been SP there for five years and was extremely popular and respected For me the task was to prove that I could be equally effective and efficient but in a less flamboyant way Soon after I joined there was a spate of chain snatchings in the posh circuit house area of Jamshedpur where senior Tata Steel officers lived As the women went for their evening walk a gang would come on motorcycles and snatch their gold chains jewellery watches etc The public and press started questioning the competence of the new SP and began comparing me with my predecessor — negatively of course When local SHOs were asked as to who was responsible for these snatchings they would invariably name Sudha Pal a notorious criminal and his gang Pal had by then attained almost a mythical dimension as every crime that took place would be blamed on him It was therefore of utmost importance to me in order to establish myself to arrest him The police officers in the district had been given strict instructions that he had to be apprehended at all costs and progress was monitored on a daily basis As the pressure mounted an informer came and said that Pal wanted to meet me as he was being falsely implicated in the chain snatchings We agreed to meet on the condition that I would not have him arrested The meeting was held where else but at the SP’s residential office In those days no registers were maintained Pal came late at night and was able to convince me of his innocence and that a rival gang in connivance with some police officers was responsible for spreading canards about him He also assured me that he was trying to reform himself by getting into legitimate business activities but was unable to do so because of police harassment In order to test his sincerity I asked him who was responsible for these snatchings if it wasn’t him He gave me two unknown names and said “SP sahib you catch them and your problem will be solved” He assured me that he would never in future be involved in any criminal activity and would keep me informed of the activities of various gangs in the district I let him go as he had approached me of his own volition and because if the information he had given was not correct we could always catch him again This was a chance I had to take In the next few days we caught the two boys he had mentioned They were 17- and 18-year-olds with no criminal record I was sceptical when they were produced before me But sure enough after the local police had interrogated them for a few days they confessed to all the snatchings and we were able to recover the gold ornaments and chains from the fence to whom they had been sold As I was only a few months in the job my stock among my subordinates as well as the press and public immediately spiked My subordinates had no clue as to how I had got the information leading to such an important detection Pal came and met me again a few days later and I thanked him for the valuable tip he had given I never saw him again A few months later his body was found in the middle of a jungle about 30 kilometres from Jamshedpur He had been kidnapped and murdered by a rival gang The local press and the general public were convinced that he had been killed in an encounter by the local police but that was not true However to keep the police’s aura alive we never confirmed or denied it Pal was a true whistleblower and assisted us in solving a series of crimes in order to prove his innocence But in the end those who live by the sword die by it He was one of many criminals who wanted to reform but were unable to get out of the cesspool of crime This incident also reinforced the conventional wisdom “set a thief to catch a thief” The writer is a former director of the Central Bureau
