Laboratory (JPL) and California Institute of Technology have launched a major project to study and understand clouds and weather in the atmosphere of exoplanets and brown dwarfs spread across the universe The predictions relate to polarisation of light from exoplanets Sujan Sengupta senior a scientist at the Indian Institute of Astrophysics Bengaluru had made theoretical predictions in collaboration with Mark SMarley of NASA’s Ames Research Centre at California Now an international team is planning to study atmosphere of exoplanets based on their method using the 200-inch Hale Telescope of Palomar Observatory in California Polarisation is a potent method for determining what is in a planet’s atmosphere Scientists had detected the presence of sulphuric acid in the atmosphere of Venus by using this method Explaining polarisation Professor Sengupta said “let us take a beam of radiation When it traverses through a medium it interacts with the material of the medium and carries the information of the medium to a detector Light emitted by sun stars candle flame are all unpolarised to start with But when they are reflected by say water bodies they become partially polarised in the direction parallel to its surface Likewise starlight bouncing off an exoplanet could be partially polarised and this could be used to understand their atmosphere” Representational image Image Courtesy: India Science Wire He and Marley have developed a novel technique to exploit polarisation of light from brown dwarfs and exoplanets to understand their atmosphere The two have theorised that unpolarised starlight would become wee bit linearly polarised with its electric field aligned in one plane when it bounces off particles in the atmosphere of exoplanets Thus if a distant star shows net polarisation it would be a telltale sign of the presence of an exoplanet with sufficient cloud cover Further they have predicted that the method could also be used to detect various characteristics of the exoplanet such as shape of the planet density of the clouds chemical composition of the atmosphere and periodicity of its self-rotation If the exoplanet is perfectly circular net polarisation would be zero since polarisation averaged over the surface of a perfectly round object would tend to cancel itself out On the other hand if the exoplanet is spinning very fast like say Jupiter then its shape would be oblate that is non-spherical pumpkin-shaped and thus polarisation averaged over its surface would not cancel out The residual polarisation will give non-zero value Their technique could also help predict if there is an exoplanet with an exomoon orbiting it For when a large natural satellite or exomoon transits a planet a tiny bit of its surface would be blocked from view The polarisation from this eclipsed area would not be available for the averaging resulting in asymmetry leading to a non-zero value The fluctuation of the non-zero value of the polarisation would be the significant evidence and indicate the periodicity of the exomoon orbiting the host exoplanet The new technique is expected to be of particular use in detecting exoplanets with lesser mass such as Earth-sized planets which are difficult to detect through existing means In addition astronomers could use this innovative method detect extrasolar planets that have highly elliptical orbits which are unable to make their host star wobble or blink by transiting in front of them Dr Sengupta had predicted that light of brown dwarf a stellar body that is at least 17000 times heavier than Earth but not massive enough to become a star should be polarized because it had silicon cloud This was subsequently confirmed through observations and now it is known that 95% of the brown dwarfs are polarized Besides this project the proposed TMT (Thirty Meter Telescope) will also have a sensitive polarimeter for exoplanet research It is being designed and developed by Indian astronomers Sengupta is a member of the TMT’s International Science Development Team for Exoplanets research Sengupta says “polarimeter proposed will also be used in characterising and detecting exoplanets and exomoon” Dimitri Mawet of Caltech who is leading the international team says that they are proposing to “commission high precision near-infrared imaging low-resolution spectro-polarimeter for the 200-inch Hale telescope on Mt Palomar to study the composition morphology and dynamics of the scattering clouds of exoplanets” The team includes Indian astronomer AN

would be a part of the history with him being the first mainstream hero ever to have a two-part release of his film Rakht Charitra would be arriving in its first part this Friday while the second part would come exactly a month later Howeverthis is for the Hindi and the Telugu version When it comes to the Tamil versionwhich is expected to be spearheaded entirely by Surya due to his immense popularity down SouthRakht Charitra would release in a singlealbeit a longer version Confirms Ramu”In the Hindi versionVivek (Oberoi) features in both the parts of the film though Surya is only introduced in the first part while he becomes far more prominent in the second version Henceit was a given that the Hindi version of the film would release in both the parts Telugu version too made sense to come in two distinct parts since the audience out there in Andhra Pradesh and adjoining regions are pretty much aware about the core story and the exploits of Paritala Ravi (played by Vivek) and Suryanarayan Reddy (Surya) Hencefor them it’s the story that would matter mostmore than the actors playing the part” Howeverwhat tilted the balance in favour of a single part release of the Tamil version of Rakht Charitra was the bigger presence of Surya in it It was apparent that since Vivek comes primarily from the B-townthe audience may have gone a little restless to see only him in the first part of the film and then wait for their local hero Surya to arrive only in the second part “Not that you would see only Surya in the single part Tamil version”reassures Ramu”Vivek is an integral part of the film and while he anyways had an equal role to play along with Surya in the second partthere are scenes of his from the first part that have been integrated with the second part here So now we will have a full length feature film with both the actors” While both parts of the Hindi and Telugu versions would be a little over two hours eachthe Tamil version is expected to be released with a three hours running length Moreoverthe editing of each of the three versions – whether HindiTelugu or Tamilwould differ as well so as to bring to fore the local flavour of the territories This means that the trilingual features all the actors enacting their scenes little differently in each of the versions “I spoke in all the three languages – TamilTelugu as well as Hindi – but enacted the scenes differently”says Surya who is not quite looking at Rakht Charitra as his big Bollywood launch but is instead treating it as just another exciting film of his”YesI know that in Tamilthe film is coming in only one part” Though he stays on to be quite modest about his popularity in South being the sole reason for the decision being madehe humbly attributes the decision making to his director Ram Gopal Varma “Since the first part doesn’t feature me for most of its durationRamu felt it would make sense to wait for some time and then club both parts together”says Surya”Ramu feels that the film would find more patronage in Tamil version if crowds come in because of me” For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian Express App More Related NewsNew Delhi: The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) on Friday welcomed the Supreme Court’s verdict striking down the BJP-led central government’s proposed National Judicial Appointments Commission (NJAC) "The AAP is of the firm view that independence of the judiciary and a transparent system for the appointment of judges are of equal importance as both of them are interlinked" the party said in a statement in New Delhi Representational image Naresh Sharma/Firstpost The Narendra Modi-led central government tried to rush through the bill to change the system of judges’ appointment in higher judiciary to wrest control of it and the Supreme Court has rightly quashed it declaring both the 99th constitutional amendment as well as the bill to create the NJAC as unconstitutional the party said "There is no denying the fact that the collegium system for appointment of judges which has been in existence for over two decades now is not an ideal system and requires drastic changes" the AAP however added The party said the new appointment system for judges could have been worse than the existing one "If the collegium system is opaque then the now axed NJAC was heavily loaded in favour of the ruling party Had it been

an injury crisis but buoyed by memories of their flooring of Brazil at the same stage of the 2014 World Cup The Marseille clash will be another test of Germany’s mettle after their historic quarter-final defeat of Italy Die Mannschaft are without three stars with defender Mats Hummels suspended plus striker Mario Gomez and midfielder Sami Khedira injured Captain Bastian Schweinsteiger is highly doubtful with a knee strain but nevertheless the world champions are relishing the French challenge Joachim Loew has compared the situation to two years ago when Germany stunned hosts Brazil 7-1 France’s 5-2 hammering of minnows Iceland in the quarter-finals on Sunday means the hosts come to Marseille with hopes high — game on says Loew Germany will be hoping of repeating their World Cup semi-final performance in the Euros AFP "The majority of the people in the stadium will be behind France the country is now full of this euphoria this energy" said Germany’s head coach "It’s great when it’s like this "In Brazil it was just the same There were 200 million behind the team and we coped well" he said with a heavy hint of understatement midfield changes A scoreline similar to the sensational 7-1 drubbing is very unlikely but the message from the German camp is clear — challenge accepted "France will have gained a lot of confidence from their victory but they know regardless of our personal situation what we can do I’m looking forward to the game" said Loew Thomas Mueller and Mario Goetze who will replace Gomez are likely to start up front in Marseille as Loew hinted at a 4-4-2 line-up rather than the 3-5-2 which beat Italy But a new face is set to be seen in the middle Either Emre Can of Liverpool or Borussia Dortmund’s Julian Weigl is set to parter Toni Kroos in the defensive midfield with Khedira out and Schweinsteiger struggling "We’re going to have to make changes and find solutions" said Loew I trust any of my players in the squad but I won’t play anyone who is not 100 percent fit" He was full of praise for France’s star-studded attack of Olivier Giroud Dimitri Payet and Antoine Griezmann all of whom scored against Iceland As it was against Italy who Germany had never previously beaten at a major tournament this is another tie steeped in history while France will want revenge French revenge Les Bleus lost to Germany in the 2014 World Cup quarter-finals at Rio de Janeiro’s Marcana thanks to Mats Hummels’ first-half header And France has never fully forgiven Germany for their penalty shoot-out defeat in the controversial semi-finals of the 1982 World Cup finals in Spain An epic 3-3 draw with four goals scored in extra-time came down to a penalty shoot-out which Germany won 5-4 but the match is remembered for a brutal incident France’s Patrick Battiston was knocked unconscious with two teeth missing and three cracked ribs after a collision with Germany goalkeeper Harald Schumacher Although no foul was given by the referee it did nothing for diplomatic relations between the European neighbours Loew deflected any questions of the 1982 match but talked up the current French team who he believes will be harder to beat than Italy "France are harder to predict they are more flexible" said Loew after their win over Iceland "They had a few problems to get into the tournament but you could see that the early goal freed them up and were 3-0 up at half-time "They will have almost a fanatical support behind them in Marseille and forwards in form like Giroud Griezmann and Payet "I’ve always said they are amongst the favourites I love games like this" World Cup winner James Faulkner said he was "deeply embarrassed and sorry" after being fined 10000 ($15650 14350 euros) on Wednesday and banned from driving for two
