MIT Developed New Technology To Remove Co2 From Air

Researchers from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have developed a new way of removing carbon dioxide from the air. The new technology will be able to work at virtually any concentration level. This will also introduce new strategies to reduce atmospheric greenhouse gas levels. According to MIT researchers, the new method can remove the gas even when it is present in very lowconcentrations as compared to previously available methods that require high concentration levels such as those found in the fossil fuel emissions from power plants. As per the research published in Energ

Chandrayaan 2 Detects Argon 40 In Lunar Exosphere

According to ISRO, the Chandrayaan 2 orbiter that is currently orbiting the Moon has detected Argon 40, a noble gas, in the Lunar Exosphere. The orbiter’s payload, Chandra’s Atmospheric Composition Explorer-2 (CHACE-2) found Argon 40 from an altitude of 100 kilometers. The payload is a Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer (QMA) with an ability to scan the lunar neutral exosphere in the mass range of 1 to 300 amu and is meant to carry out an in-situ study of the composition and distribution of the lunar neutral exosphere and its variability. It is an isotope of the noble gas Argon, which is
