2) The food management system of the Chinese military in the hands of robot cooks

The main motive behind introducing technology in the Chinese military plans is improving the mechanisation, reducing the labour intensity, strengthening intelligence of meal making, and lessening energy consumption of cooking.

3) Chandrayaan 2: completion of one year around the moon in orbit and still have fuel for 7 years

Chandrayaan-2, India’s second Lunar Mission, has completed rounds around the moon for one year on Friday as it was launched and inserted into the lunar orbit on 20 August. And still all features are working well and enough fuel is there to get it operated for 7 more years.

The mission was launched to get more and more knowledge about the moon for the better understanding of its origin and evolution with the detailed study of some concepts like mineralogy, thermophysical, topography, and surface chemical composition characteristics and atmosphere. Likewise, during the year, raw data has been downloaded at the Indian Space Science Data Centre (ISSDC) from the payloads.

 

4) Bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir results in an increased number of terrorists

Bifurcating Jammu and Kashmir into two union territories has deteriorated the security sector in the Kashmir valley as the number of residents joining terrorist groups are increasing day by day. The fact sheet from the ministry clearly shows that 90 locals have joined different terror groups in this year and it seems to double up in the coming months due to bitterness inducing COVID-19 alienation time. Most of them are Kashmiri locals, whose identity is come to know after the identification of their dead bodies in the encounter.

The worst point is that initially, it was easy to know the number of people joined in the terror groups because of the online updating of their missings by family friends or neighbours. Contrarily,  now nobody comes forward.
