As many as 30 passengers had boarded the bus at Gaur and seven others at Chandranigahpur, according to the general secretary of Prithvi Highway Bus Entrepreneurs Committee (PHBEC), Yogendra KC.

The casualties are yet to be identified. The incident site is 2.5 km away from Munglin, informed police. Police and locals rescued the injured and fished out the bodies from the wreckage of bus, which was submerged in the river.

Meanwhile, the injured have been sent to the hospitals in Bharatpur in the district. Security personnel deployed from Chitwan DPO are carrying out the search operation at the site. Police are trying to find out the cause of the pre-dawn accident.

Poorly maintained vehicles and roads and carelessness on the part of doctors are held responsible for the most of the highway accidents in Nepal.

Her belongings including passport, identity card and clothes were found at a point along the Highway in Syangja district. Her phone, however, was missing and police were searching for it to locate her along with the help of sniffer dogs.

But, on Thursday, police officers found a decomposed body at a point around 153 kilometres west of Kathmandu after locals alerted the police of a foul smell in the area, according to the report.

The body has been taken to Kathmandu for postmortem.

Cops to fine motorists using pressure horns

The Metropolitan Traffic Police Division is launching a drive to punish motorists using pressure horns within the Ring Road, especially in a ‘no horn zone’, to ensure a noise-pollution free city.

The MTPD has warned that it will slap a fine of up to Rs 1,500 on erring drivers as per Section 164 of the Motor Vehicle and Transport Management Act, 1993 if they are caught blowing horn in the ‘no horn zone’.

With increasing number of vehicles and limited road length in urban settlements of the Kathmandu Valley,the problem of traffic congestion, accidents, air and noise pollution have become serious issues.

Noise pollution in commercial places, new and old residential areas and tourist spots of the Kathmandu Valley exceed the Guidelines for Community Noise set by the World Health Organisation.

According to Environmental Statistics of Nepal-2013 recently released by the Central Bureau of Statistics, five traffic areas go over the limit or permissible level of 70 decibels (dB) for road traffic noise.

The statistics list Kupandole as the most noise-polluted traffic area with 77 dB noise level followed by Putalisadak with 75 dB, Kalanki 74 dB, Maitighar 71 dB and Suryabinayak 71 dB during the daytime.

Similarly, commercial and residential areas such as Asan Chowk (74dB), Manbhawan (71db) and Naya Bazaar (64 dB) are said to be equally affected by noise pollution.

According to the WHO, human ear can tolerate only 26 decibels of sound.

Sound exceeding 70 dB is detrimental to health and can cause headache, irritation, fatigue, restlessness, stress, distraction and sleep loss.

Regular exposure to noise can cause hypertension, temporary or permanent hearing loss, stress, sleeplessness, fright and distraction, among other health problems.

Pointless honking is a major factor causing noise pollution in the Valley where more than 700,000 vehicle ply every day.

A traffic police official informed that MTPD has launched a crackdown on vehicles who honk unnecessarily in the core areas of the capital city. The existing law allows vehicles to use pressure horns on highways only.

A pressure horn generally produces sound measuring more than 60 decibel. “It is excusable only on the highways,” said SP Lokendra Malla.

NASA Just Found a Lost Spacecraft


NASA was started in 1958 as a part of the United States government. NASA is in charge of U.S. science and technology that has to do with airplanes or space. NASA does a lot of different things. NASA works to make air travel faster and safer.

NASA does a lot of different things. NASA makes satellites. The satellites help scientists learn more about Earth. NASA sends probes out into space. NASA scientists study things in the solar system, and even farther away.

A new program will send humans to explore asteroids, Mars and beyond. People at NASA work on ways to make air travel better for everyone on Earth, too.

If movies about space have taught us anything, it’s that no one can hear you scream. If you get lost in space, nobody’s going to find you. Unless you’re a spacecraft with a direct link to NASA. Then, there is hope for you yet.

STEREO-B, from the Solar and Terrestrial Relations Observatory mission, went missing on October 1, 2014 after losing contact with the team back on Earth. However, on Sunday night, scientists were able to reestablish contact, after 22 months of searching, when the Deep Space Network (NASA’s tool for tracking space missions) was able to lock on to the signal.

In October 2006, STEREO-B and its partner STEREO-A embarked on a two-year-long mission to provide measurements of the sun’s flow of energy to Earth. One was slightly inside Earth’s orbit, and one was outside, allowing scientists to measure energy from multiple angles and eventually, the far side of the sun for the first time.

However, the team ran into a problem. One of the spacecraft was about to drift to the opposite side of the sun from Earth, so there was going to be a three-month period during which communication would be impossible. Since the spacecraft were only designed to be in space for two years, this development was overlooked at the time of the launch.

“The sun emits strongly in nearly every wavelength, making it the biggest source of noise in the sky,” said Dan Ossing, mission operations manager for the STEREO mission.“Most deep space missions only have to deal with sun interference for a day or so, but for each of the STEREO spacecraft, this period lasted nearly four months.”

Because the spacecraft was designed to reset after 72 hours without contact, the team decided to test it to make sure it could reestablish a signal with Earth durimg this reset period. The scientists figured it would turn itself back on.

The team received a weak signal after the first reset, and that was the last time they heard from STEREO-B. Until this week, when the Deep Space Network established a link with STEREO-B’s signal.

In a report from December 2015, scientists hypothesized that the tests went awry because the sensor that tells the spacecraft how fast it’s rotating failed, sending it spinning out of control. Meanwhile, the spacecraft’s battery was powered by solar panels, which weren’t able to get energy to power it up.

Since communications were lost, scientists have been using the network to check for STEREO-B, spacing out three three-hour blocks each week to search for it. This was a tough task, considering scientists had no idea where the spacecraft was.

But the newly located STEREO-B isn’t out of danger just yet. The STEREO team will plan further recovery processes to ensure that the spacecraft is working properly. The team has already spent several hours testing its vitals before powering it down to save battery.

It’s a process that might take years. In 2019, the team will be able to use Hubble to see it and test its rate of spin.

So I guess STEREO-B got its happily ever after, at least for now. It’s still sad to think about it floating in space, spinning out of control, hoping its friends back on Earth will find it. Although that could just be us (definitely us).
