The police said Vicky, who runs a coaching centre at Old Rajinder Nagar for Maths and Science subjects, has been detained for his alleged role in circulating the leaked papers of classes 10 and 12. “The CBSE officials received a complaint via fax from an unknown person on March 23 that Vicky is involved in the leak of question papers,” said a police officer.

The FIR, registered by the Crime Branch on the complaint of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), also mentioned Vicky’s name, the officer added.

A Delhi-based businessman was also being questioned after some students said they received the question papers from him on Whatsapp, he said.

According to the officer, the academic unit at Rouse Avenue had on March 26 received some sheets of handwritten answers of Economics paper before the exam commenced. Some tutors and teachers of a few other coaching centres are also under the scanner, the officer said.

Many other teachers may also be included in this leak.

“Police are suspecting a strong syndicate involved in the question paper leak. We will also question CBSE officers who could be involved,” he added. IANS

NASA Plans To Unveil New Mission For Studying The Causes of Solar Particle Storms

"We are so pleased to add a new mission to our fleet of spacecraft that help us better understand the Sun, as well as how our star influences the space environment between planets," said Nicky Fox, Director of NASA's Heliophysics Division

NASA is planning to launch a new mission to study how the Sun generates and releases giant space weather storms — known as solar particle storms — into planetary space.

The new mission, called the Sun Radio Interferometer Space Experiment (SunRISE), is an array of six CubeSats operating as one very large radio telescope, the US space agency said on Monday. NASA has awarded $62.6 million to design, build and launch SunRISE by no earlier than July 1, 2023.

Understanding how the Sun generates and releases giant space weather storms can ultimately help protect astronauts travelling to the Moon and Mars by providing better information on how the Sun’s radiation affects the space environment they must travel through.

“We are so pleased to add a new mission to our fleet of spacecraft that help us better understand the Sun, as well as how our star influences the space environment between planets,” said Nicky Fox, Director of NASA’s Heliophysics Division.

“The more we know about how the Sun erupts with space weather events, the more we can mitigate their effects on spacecraft and astronauts.” The mission design relies on six solar-powered CubeSats — each about the size of a toaster oven — to simultaneously observe radio images of low-frequency emission from solar activity and share them via NASA’s Deep Space Network.

The constellation of CubeSats would fly within six miles (9.6 kms) of each other, above Earth’s atmosphere, which otherwise blocks the radio signals SunRISE will observe.

Together, the six CubeSats will create 3D maps to pinpoint where giant particle bursts originate on the Sun and how they evolve as they expand outward into space. This, in turn, will help determine what initiates and accelerates these giant jets of radiation.
