Maharashtra facing ‘historic economic crisis’, will have to take loans to help flood-hit people: Sharad Pawar
NCP chief Sharad Pawar on Monday said Maharashtra is facing a “historic economic crisis” and the state government has no option but to take loans to help flood-affected people in the state. Pawar, who is on a tour of the Marathwada region to review the flood situation, told reporters in Osmanabad that a state government cannot do anything alone in a crisis of such magnitude. Last week, heavy rains and floods claimed at least 48 lives in Pune, Aurangabad and Konkan divisions, while crops on lakhs of hectares were damaged.

The center of our Milky Way galaxy is too distant for us to visit in person, but we can still explore it. NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope has released sound recordings from space. According to the American space agency, Hubble has released cosmic sights that can be experienced with other senses as well. Hubble now allows us to see what the Galactic Center looks like in different types of light. By translating the inherently digital data (in the form of ones and zeroes) captured by telescopes in space into images, astronomers create visual representations that would otherwise be invisible to us.
