April-6

  • The much awaited test of an updated version of India's most potent Advanced Air Defence (AAD) interceptor missile from a defence test facility off the Odisha coast on Monday turned out to be a fiasco with the weapon system falling immediately after taking off from the launcher. The indigenously built missile, dubbed as 'Ashwin' was fired from the launching complex - IV of the Wheeler Island at about 11.45 am. The AAD interceptor missile is a single-stage missile powered by solid propellants.
  •  The world's biggest particle accelerator is back in action after a two-year shutdown and upgrade, embarking on a new mission that scientists hope could give them a look into the unseen dark universe. Scientists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN, shot two particle beams through the Large Hadron Collider's 27-kilometer (16.8-mile) tunnel, beneath the Swiss-French border near Geneva.
  • Sania Mirza took a giant leap towards becoming world number one player in the doubles by pocketing 1000 ranking points, following her stupendous title win in the Miami Open with partner Martina Hingis. Sania's ranking remained at number three but she closed the gap to just 145 points with the world number one Italians Sara Errani and Roberta Vinci, who both have 7640 points each.With her second title in a row with Martina, Sania now sits at number three with 7495 points.
