Arvind Vaid, IVF expert at Indira IVF Hospital, said the patient, Sharmin Imam had earlier undergone diagnostic laparoscopy followed by laparotomy for severe endometriosis with severe bowel adhesions.

“We suggested her to undergo IVF (in vitro fertilisation) treatment with donor eggs. After transferring three embryos, the woman tested positive for pregnancy. Later, she underwent an ultrasound in Dhaka and was diagnosed with heterotrophic/heterogeneous pregnancy,” said Vaid.

Vaid said: “A timely diagnosis of heterogeneous pregnancy and intervention often results in successful outcome of the intrauterine foetus. Imam’s post-operative obstetric scan revealed a healthy intrauterine sac of seven weeks with cardiac activity of 146 beats per minute. Therefore, she was discharged two days after the surgery.” (IANS)

June 06, 2017: NASA has chosen 12 astronauts out of a record-breaking 18,300 applications for upcoming space missions. An American of Indian descent, Raja Chari, has successfully earned his spot in the top 12.

The astronauts were selected on the basis of expertise, education, and physical tests. This batch of 12 astronauts is the largest group selected by NASA since two decades. The group consisting of 7 men and 5 women surpassed the minimum requirements of NASA.

Born in Waterloo, Iowa, Chari graduated from Air Force Academy in 1999 with a bachelor’s degree in Astronautical Engineering and Engineering Science. He went on to complete his master’s in Aeronautics and Astronautics from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The astronaut is also a graduate of US Naval Test Pilot School.

Currently, Raja Chari is a Lieutenant Colonel in the US Air Force. He is the commander of 461st Flight Test Squadron and director of the F-35 Integrated Test Force at Edwards Air Force Base in California.

After Late Kalpana Chawla, Lt. Col. Raja Chari is the second Indian American astronaut chosen by NASA.

The 12 astronauts will have to go through two years of training. Upon completion, they will be assigned their missions ranging from research at the International Space Station, launching from American soil on spacecraft by private companies, to flying on deep space missions on NASA’s Orion Spacecraft.

The US Vice-President Mike Pence visited the Johnson Space Centre in Houston to announce and congratulate the new batch. Pence also said that President Trump is “fully committed” to NASA’s missions in space.
