I was trying to ask our scientists about the achievements in science during the year 2008. As you are all aware, the placing of chandrayan on moon orbit has taken place during the year 2008. It has resulted in terrain mapping revealing some interesting lunar land forms that are unusual and the presence of iron in minute amount in certain minerals found in lunar surface. The x-ray spectrometer is able to detect signals of the element magnesium, aluminum and silicon from the lunar surface. Scientists of CCMB have developed a technology for asexual seed production in food crops by a process called apo-mix-is which would allow production of high yielding hybrid seeds at greatly reduced cost for the farmer. I am sure members assembled here will be able to visualize many such accomplishments.
