As billionaires Jeff Bezos and Richard Branson went on suborbital space flights with their respective companies recently, space tourism has become the buzzword all of a sudden. For Santhosh George Kulangara, who was the first Indian to be selected by Branson?s Virgin Galactic as a paid space tourist as early as 2007, the long-cherished dream of space travel seems just a few months away. The Kerala-based solo-traveller and entrepreneur is the founder of Safari TV, a unique channel dedicated to travel and exploration, and now a part-time member of the Kerala State Planning Board.

As Kulangara gears up for the historic space travel ? Virgin is yet to confirm when he will take to space and if more training is needed for the same ? unlike any of the trips to more than 130 countries he has visited, indianexpress.com caught up with the 49-year-old to talk space, life, and the world around us in an extensive interview.

Excerpts:

You seem to believe that there is a real future for space tourism and foresee colonisation of other planets for economic purposes?

Space tourism is purely a futuristic business. This can become the next big thing for humans. Why did Spaniards sail to Latin America all those centuries ago? The French to Africa? The British to India? Europe is this rich because the people there were adventurous and went to other lands and conquered them. Like that, space tourism is an investment for the future. We should think about a future when the resources on planet earth are no more enough to sustain all the human beings here. If there is a company experienced in travelling to space and other planets and capable of doing explorations, wouldn?t they stand to benefit from that situation? I foresee colonisation of other planets and initiatives such as space tourism are just means to that end.

Can you elaborate on how you came across this space tour project and how you became part of it?

I was travelling on a train in the UK in 2005 and happened to see an ad in a newspaper left by another passenger. It said Richard Branson was inviting people to join his company?s space tour. I already knew about Branson and had huge admiration for him. I was immediately interested. I took that newspaper with me and after returning home, sent a mail to Branson?s company. I told them of my background that I am someone who does travel documentaries. There were a few telephonic interviews and even they seemed to be happy to have a mediaperson with them. But there were some bureaucratic hurdles as I needed the Indian government?s permission to join the trip to space. Finally, I was officially enrolled as the first space tourist from India in 2007.

What was the reaction of people back then? With so many hiccups along the way, did you also doubt at some point whether it would materialise or not?

Santhosh George Kulangara during a zero-gravity training a few years ago.

To be fair, not many believed it was possible when I joined the space tourism project in 2007. Even media persons would say this was a non-starter. But now, a generation has changed and the youngsters of today, who are more knowledgeable about technological advancements, know these things are possible. I, though, have always believed it would happen despite the hiccups. I think within a year from now, we will fly to space. It will be an answer to people who ridiculed us saying it was impossible.

What is the cost of the trip for you? It surely will be the most expensive trip for you ever?

Yes. This will be the most expensive journey for me till now. I?m shelling out $2.5 lakh ( Rs 1.8 crore approx) for the trip besides training costs and other expenses. It might seem like a huge amount. But worth it for the experience and the historical significance. I know I?m going to become the first Indian space tourist. Isn?t that enough incentive? When I was at the Kennedy Space Center in the United States undergoing the training, I felt like I had reached the top of the world. The get-togethers involving celebrities like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Leonardo DiCaprio at the Mojave desert, getting to know personalities like Richard Branson, you pay for these experiences. Many spend this much money to buy houses right? It?s not a huge amount. It?s all about one?s perspective. If I had thought like everyone else, I would not have been able to do even one episode of Sancharam (his travel show which has crossed 1500 episodes).

How did the training programme for the tour go? Will you have to undergo another round of training given you completed the training nearly a decade ago?

I?m not sure whether we will have to undergo another round of training because the training was completed way back in 2011 or only do medical tests. The training was mostly to gauge whether we could withstand certain conditions the body would experience during the space trip. We had classroom learning before a special plane from Kennedy Space Center took us on a flight across the Atlantic Ocean. In the zero-gravity training, the aircraft would go in a parabolic shape and we would feel weightless for a few seconds. The G-tolerance training, on the other hand, was taxing as we would feel as if our weight has increased by six times over and all the liquid in our system is being sucked out. Fortunately, I managed to clear all such tests.

So was space the only place left for you given you have been to all continents?

To be honest, I haven?t travelled to every place on the globe. But since I have visited 130 countries, it will be difficult to have fresh, culturally shocking experiences now. I have a fairly good understanding of what to expect in terms of the geography, the people, cuisine and culture in most of the regions around the world.

Do you think travel is essential for a human being? And do we have an attitude that only the rich can afford to travel?

Yes, of course. Travel broadens our horizons. The problem with us is that we all live in a set pattern. Go to school and college, get a job, save money, marry, build a house, buy a car, get old, fall ill and die. Imagine we are going to Ooty. What do we gain if we just go there on a bus and return without exploring the place? Can we call that a fruitful journey? Most of us live our lives like that in our small little cocoons. This is where I find the westerners different from us Indians. They invest their money in life experiences. Not in banks. We should also have that realisation. Here, everyone is living for the next generation. No one is living for himself or herself. If you do proper planning, cost-effective travel is possible for people belonging to any economic category.

How did you develop an interest in travel and making travel documentaries?

My father used to run a parallel college at our village Marangattupally in Kerala?s Kottayam district. He used to conduct study tours for his students and my sisters and I used to tag along with the group during our school days. After every trip, my father would ask us questions about all that we encountered and made us write travelogues. So there was no other way but to note down every minute detail we saw and heard during our trips and it soon became second nature for me. That experience helped me nurture my style of taking and keeping notes of all the places I visit. In a way, I realised very early that travel is not a hindrance to your formal education, it is very much a huge part of it.

Santhosh George Kulangara with the completion certificate of his training for space tourism.

The broadcast media took its sweet time to understand the value of your travelogues. Can you go through the early years of struggle?

Even though I used to help my father with Labour India (a publishing house of journals and magazines for students run by Kulangara?s family), my dream was to make travel documentaries. I used to edit college magazines for money for my travels. The first foreign country I visited was Nepal. Then I went to Maldives, Singapore and so on, and gradually covered all continents. I travel cheaply and shoot the visuals myself. If I spend Rs 1 lakh on a journey, I make sure that I shoot at least 25 episodes. Initially, I gave my programmes to multiple TV channels and everyone sat on them for years thinking what is special about travelogues by a 24-year-old. Finally, in 2001, Asianet started telecasting Sancharam and it became a huge success.

What are some of the countries you are yet to visit? And which country have you visited the most?

Amazon rainforests in South America are next on my bucket list. I have not been to countries like Saudi Arabia, Iran and North Korea. The countries I have visited most are America and China. I believe all Indians should go to China as tourists. When you think of China, you generally think of a borderline dictatorial regime. But tourism flourishes in China.

Santhosh George Kulangara during the zero-gravity training.

Have you had any scary experiences shooting from conflict-ridden countries?

I go to a country only after studying about it fully. First of all, I grasp the map of the places I want to go and make a mindmap of all things I want to do. I have travelled through Yemen during the crisis and shot visuals. If you are careful, nothing bad will happen to you. Also, I have needed only English to communicate in all my travels.

You seem to reject all sorts of regional exceptionalism, whether it?s the Indian or Kerala one?

We have to understand there are more beautiful places and better systems than ours in the world. When it comes to city planning and aesthetics, we are still stuck in the bygone era. Our cities are not aesthetically pleasing like the truly global ones. In Kerala, we are exceptional in certain things like education, health, social justice etc. But we have an attitude against industries that has cost us dearly.

Coming back to the space voyage, will you be shooting visuals of it as well?

Yes, I will. The only thing I insisted on before signing the contract with Virgin in 2007 was that I am allowed to shoot during the trip so that people back home will be able to watch the unique sights from our space travel.

India is one of the leading countries in space research. What chance does India have in space tourism?

ISRO is also observing these developments, I think. The ultimate aim should be to make people travel like in a passenger aircraft.

[content] => Array ( [encoded] =>

Chile, champion of renewable energies in Latin America, relies on green hydrogen, this gas obtained by electrolysis with clean, non-carbonated electricity. In November 2020, Chilean President Sebastian Piñera unveiled an ambitious national plan to make his country one of the world’s top three exporters of this energy, used, among other things, in transport and the steel industry. The government plans to create a fund endowed with 50 million dollars (43 million euros) to support projects in this sector, and has started to deploy “green hydrogen diplomacy” to position itself in this market. world still in its infancy.

The country’s main asset lies in its capacity to produce renewable energy, at competitive prices, thanks to its exceptional and varied climatic conditions. On a narrow strip of land stretching 4,500 km from north to south, the country can produce all the green energies on the planet. In addition to the Atacama Desert, which enjoys the highest solar radiation in the world, the wind blows hard on the 4,000 kilometers of coastline and even beyond, as on the plateaus of Chilean Patagonia. The country’s wind and solar energy production capacities have increased tenfold over the past seven years, thanks in particular to foreign investment.

Strengthen your autonomy

The American fund EIG Global Energy Partners has thus invested more than 800 million dollars in the construction of the first thermodynamic solar power plant in Latin America. Inaugurated in March 2019, it produces continuous electricity for 250,000 homes, day and night, using solar heat which produces energy from a turbine running on water vapor. The country invested very early in the renewable energy sector to strengthen its autonomy, shortly after the sudden shutdown, in 2007, of gas supplies from Argentina.

This policy now allows it to exit coal earlier than expected. In early July, the government announced the closure of four coal-fired power stations, fifteen years ahead of schedule. “With clean energies, electricity is no longer produced and consumed in the same place, as could be the case with coal-fired power stations, so it is necessary to build a vast distribution and transmission network”, notes Dario Morales, director of studies at the Acera association, which brings together renewable energy players in Chile.

It rocks in the societies of friends of museums. Since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic in March 2020, they have lost an average of 20% to 25% of their members. However, the contribution of these benefactors is by no means marginal. In 2019, the Friends of the Center Pompidou gave 3 million euros for acquisitions, while the public subsidy capped at 1.8 million euros. The Friends of the Museum of Modern Art in Paris had put, the same year, 2 million on the table for the work of embellishment.

However, it is difficult to solicit these generous donors when, for eight months, the establishments were unable to offer them the usual compensation for their generosity: free visits, previews, private conferences or one-on-one with the curators … And of course a tax advantage: they benefit from a deduction on their income of 66% of the sums given.

It is in difficult times, they say, that we recognize our ?real? friends. Deputy CEO of the Friends of the Louvre society, Sébastien Fumaroli has done the count: the real “activists” – understand those who do not expect privileges in return – represent 50% of its membership, or around 30,000 to 35,000 members. In December 2020, the company created a new Circle of Patrons. This group has already raised 300,000 euros, devoted primarily to the ?Treasures of Cairo? exhibition, scheduled for 2022.

In battle order

At the same time, the subscription launched by the Friends of Orsay et de l’Orangerie made it possible to collect the 200,000 euros necessary for the purchase of a Breton boy in profile by painter Roderic O’Conor. Some of the most active members of the National Museum of Modern Art have joined together to raise 200,000 euros for the benefit of the exhibition ?They’re abstraction?.

Despite the loss of a fifth of its members, the Friends of the Palace of Versailles society has a comfortable woolen stocking, supplied by bequests, donations and life insurance contracts, which allows it to honor its commitments, in particular for restorations. And its members continued to help the castle on an individual basis, mainly through direct donations of works, such as this set of thirteen works published between 1681 and 1810 for the Marie-Antoinette library.

Today, these circles are in battle order to find their flock. « Since the reopening of the castle, we are in the process of recovering them », assures, optimist, Thierry Ortmans, president of the Friends of Versailles. To convince dropouts to resume their subscription, everyone is going with their own carrot. The Friends of the Louvre society, which lost 15,000 members, offered its members in 2020 a free additional card for a person of their choice. An offer that has enabled them to attract 10,000 potential new recruits, which must now be transformed into solid contributions.

It rocks in the societies of friends of museums. Since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic in March 2020, they have lost an average of 20% to 25% of their members. However, the contribution of these benefactors is by no means marginal. In 2019, the Friends of the Center Pompidou gave 3 million euros for acquisitions, while the public subsidy capped at 1.8 million euros. The Friends of the Museum of Modern Art in Paris had put, the same year, 2 million on the table for the work of embellishment.

However, it is difficult to solicit these generous donors when, for eight months, the establishments were unable to offer them the usual compensation for their generosity: free visits, previews, private conferences or one-on-one with the curators … And of course a tax advantage: they benefit from a deduction on their income of 66% of the sums given.

It is in difficult times, they say, that we recognize our ?real? friends. Deputy CEO of the Friends of the Louvre society, Sébastien Fumaroli has done the count: the real “activists” – understand those who do not expect privileges in return – represent 50% of its membership, or around 30,000 to 35,000 members. In December 2020, the company created a new Circle of Patrons. This group has already raised 300,000 euros, devoted primarily to the ?Treasures of Cairo? exhibition, scheduled for 2022.

In battle order

At the same time, the subscription launched by the Friends of Orsay et de l’Orangerie made it possible to collect the 200,000 euros necessary for the purchase of a Breton boy in profile by painter Roderic O’Conor. Some of the most active members of the National Museum of Modern Art have joined together to raise 200,000 euros for the benefit of the exhibition ?They’re abstraction?.

Despite the loss of a fifth of its members, the Friends of the Palace of Versailles society has a comfortable woolen stocking, supplied by bequests, donations and life insurance contracts, which allows it to honor its commitments, in particular for restorations. And its members continued to help the castle on an individual basis, mainly through direct donations of works, such as this set of thirteen works published between 1681 and 1810 for the Marie-Antoinette library.

Today, these circles are in battle order to find their flock. « Since the reopening of the castle, we are in the process of recovering them », assures, optimist, Thierry Ortmans, president of the Friends of Versailles. To convince dropouts to resume their subscription, everyone is going with their own carrot. The Friends of the Louvre society, which lost 15,000 members, offered its members in 2020 a free additional card for a person of their choice. An offer that has enabled them to attract 10,000 potential new recruits, which must now be transformed into solid contributions. The association is also trying to recover the ?young and family? public, which has fallen by 40%, by preparing a specific campaign for young workers for the start of the school year.

[content] => Array ( [encoded] =>

Elon Musk?s SpaceX is acquiring the small-satellite data provider Swarm Technologies, scooping up the startup?s roughly 30 employees and its network of 120 tiny satellites. The deal, struck last month, is extremely rare for SpaceX, which normally manufactures its rocket and satellite hardware in-house or hires subcontractors.

Swarm revealed the acquisition plans in an August 6th filing with the Federal Communications Commission that requested approval to shift ownership of its satellite and antenna licenses to SpaceX. The merger agreement, in which Swarm will become a direct and wholly owned subsidiary of SpaceX, was inked on July 16th, the filing said.

The acquisition of Swarm marks a rare business maneuver for SpaceX as it deepens its foray into the world of consumer electronics and claws its way out of a chasm of unprofitability with Starlink, with the hopes of eventually turning the network into a cash cow to fund Musk?s massive Starship launch system. It?s unclear, though, what specific opportunity SpaceX sees in Swarm to benefit its broadband network. A spokesperson for Swarm declined to comment on the deal, and SpaceX didn?t reply to a request for comment.

The acquisition will strengthen ?the combined companies? ability to provide innovative satellite services that reach unserved and underserved parts of the world,? Swarm wrote in the FCC filing. ?SpaceX will similarly benefit from access to the intellectual property and expertise developed by the Swarm team, as well as from adding this resourceful and effective team to SpaceX.?

Founded in 2016, Swarm offers ultra low-bandwidth data services using its tiny sandwich-sized SpaceBEE satellites that talk to smaller consumer antennas on the ground called ?Tiles.? Of the 150 planned, 120 satellites are already in orbit, and the tiles can be installed as cracker-sized chips inside, for example, the circuit board of a device. With GPS built in, devices with a tile installed can be tracked, relay sensor data, or do whatever the customer programs it to do using tiny pings of bandwidth to Swarm?s global satellite network starting at $5 a month.

SpaceX?s much different Starlink program aims to beam broadband internet into rural areas that lack fiber or physical internet connections. The company already has more than 1,700 of its initial tranche of 4,409 satellites in low-Earth orbit with nearly 100,000 beta users, most of whom paid $499 for a terminal kit and $99 a month for internet. The network is far ahead of competition from UK-backed OneWeb, which has launched 254 satellites so far for its similar ? but smaller-sized ? broadband network, and Amazon?s budding Kuiper network, which has yet to deploy any satellites.

A case of the disease due to the very dangerous Marburg virus causing hemorrhagic fever has been recorded in Guinea, the first in West Africa, announced Monday, August 9, the World Health Organization (WHO ) in a press release.

The WHO judged “High” the threat at national and regional level, but ” low “ at an international level. ?Marburg virus disease, which belongs to the same family as the virus responsible for Ebola virus disease, was detected less than two months after Guinea declared the end of the Ebola epidemic that had erupted at the beginning of the year “, said the African office of the WHO in another statement.

Information on the appearance of the Marburg virus in Guinea was confirmed by the Guinean government in a statement Monday evening. ?The investigation started on August 4, 2021 around the case did not reveal a suspected case of Marburg fever. However, 155 contact cases were listed and followed up daily ?, he clarified.

The case was detected in the prefecture of Guéckédou, in the south of the country, in a village located in a forest region close to the borders with Sierra Leone and Liberia. This is a man who died on August 2 and whose symptoms date back to July 25, the WHO said.

Transmission by bats

Samples taken from the patient and tested by a field laboratory in Guéckédou as well as by the Guinean national laboratory for hemorrhagic fever have tested positive for the Marburg virus. Additional analyzes carried out by the Institut Pasteur in Senegal then confirmed this result. The patient had been treated in a clinic in Koundou (Guéckédou prefecture), where a team of medical investigators had been dispatched to study the worsening of his symptoms.

In a tweet, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, stressed the need to implement “A concerted effort to prevent transmission and protect communities”. A team of ten experts from the UN agency is already on the ground and providing support to the national health authorities, which are working to conduct a thorough investigation as quickly as possible and to step up emergency interventions. Cross-border surveillance is stepped up so that a possible case can be quickly detected.

Three family members of the patient who died and a healthcare worker have been identified as high-risk close contacts and their health is being monitored, while investigations are underway to identify the source of the infection and other contacts of the deceased patient.

Marburg virus disease is transmitted to humans by fruit bats and is spread in humans through direct contact with bodily fluids of infected people, or with surfaces and materials, according to the WHO.

“Stop it now”

On the African continent, previous outbreaks and sporadic cases have been reported in South Africa, Angola, Kenya, Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. But this is the first time that the virus has been detected in West Africa.

The disease begins suddenly, with a high fever, severe headache and possible discomfort. Case fatality rates have ranged from 24% to 88% in previous outbreaks, depending on the virus strain and case management. Although there are no vaccines or antiviral treatments, oral or intravenous rehydration and treatment of specific symptoms improve survival rates.

?We salute the vigilance and rapid investigative action of Guinean health workers. To prevent the spread of the Marburg virus from reaching a rapid pace, we must stop it now ?Dr Matshidiso Moeti, WHO regional director for Africa, said in the statement. “We are working with local health authorities to implement a rapid response based on the experience and expertise acquired by Guinea in the management of the epidemic of Ebola virus disease, which is transmitted from similar way “, she also stressed.

[content] => Array ( [encoded] =>

New research has found that people who eat high-vitamin K diets are up to 34 percent less likely to develop cardiovascular disease. These are related to atherosclerosis, which mainly affects the heart or blood vessels. In a study carried out over 23 years, the authors wanted to investigate whether the consumption of foods with vitamin K reduced the risk of plaque formation in the arteries.

Therefore, people should take vitamin K regularly

The study authors analyzed data from more than 50,000 people who participated in the Danish study on nutrition, cancer and health. There are two types of vitamin K in foods that people eat. Vitamin K1 comes mainly from green leafy vegetables and vegetable oils, while K2 is found in meat, eggs, and fermented foods like cheese. The study results show that the highest intake of the vitamin can reduce the risk of serious heart problems by 21 percent. For vitamin K2, however, the risk of hospitalization was 14 percent lower. The researchers saw a lower risk of all types of heart disease-related atherosclerosis. This is especially true for peripheral arterial occlusive disease with 34 percent. The results suggest that increased intake of the vitamin might work as a preventive measure against atherosclerosis and subsequent cardiovascular disease.

Vitamin K works by preventing calcium from building up in the main arteries in the body, which leads to calcification of the blood vessels. In addition, the role of vitamin K in cardiovascular health and particularly in vascular calcification is a promising area of ??research. The next phase of research will focus on building and improving databases on the vitamin K2 content of foods. According to the study authors, more knowledge about various food sources and the effects of different types of vitamin K2 is a priority. This study highlights the potentially important effect of vitamin intake on the killer disease and reiterates the importance of a healthy diet in prevention.

Victory without worries for the Hibernian who left only the crumbs at Ross County. Those who left the field without points were unable to react to the initial disadvantage. It was a match that Jack Ross’s men managed in the best possible way throughout the 90 minutes of play. The first jolt comes thanks to Martin Boyle’s goal in the 22nd minute. Since that moment, Ross County has not been able to return to the game with Hibernian who ran away in the score by finding two more goals that did not leave room for the opponent’s recovery. Goals from Kyle Magennis in the 26th minute and Christian Doidge in the 33rd minute put the result in the safe. Thanks to this success, the team led by Hanlon makes a big leap forward in the standings.

During the match, Ross County did not create great dangers at Matt Macey’s goal for nothing: they did not suffer any shot on target.

To confirm the final score, the Hibernian was in control of the match: they had more ball possession (58%), made more shots (18-8), and hit more corners (11-4) .

The hosts have successfully completed more passes than the opponent (382-245): Ryan Porteous (59), Jake Doyle-Hayes (57) and McGinn (50) stood out. For the guests, Blair Spittal was the most accurate player with 35 successful passes.

Christian Doidge was the player who shot the most for the Hibernian: 5 times including 2 on goal. For Ross County it was Jack Burroughs who tried harder and finished twice.
In Hibernian, striker Doidge was the best of his team in tackling won (9 out of 14 total). Striker Jordan White was the most effective in the ranks of Ross County with 7 tackles won in spite of the 14 played in total.

In the upper price bracket of Rs. 353, Aptus Value Housing Finance India is available at a P / BV of 8.8x (FY21) which appears to be fully priced. Geojit Financial Services has assigned an underwriting rating to the long-term issue given its high yield ratios, impressive growth and attractive margins. According to the CRISIL report, AVHFIL had the highest RoA of 6.5% among peers in FY21 and has an average RoE of 11.1%, 11.4% and 9.3% in FY21, FY20 and FY19 respectively.

While progress in affordable housing in India has been rather slow, with a total outstanding loan portfolio of only INR 880 billion (3% of regular housing), Aptus has created its own success story by combining the identification of the right customer profile, the right guarantee and heavy use of analyzes, systems and processes. However, valuations at 5.4x on the post-money book and 45x on FY23e earnings don’t leave much short-term potential. Investors with a long-term outlook may wish to consider subscribing.

Considering the adjusted BVPS for FY 21 of Rs.50.03 on a post-issue basis, the company is going to be listed at a P / B of 7.06 with a market cap of Rs.1,74,940mn, while that its counterpart, Aavas Financiers, is trading at a P. / B of 8.47. Analysts have given this IPO a subscription rating as the company has a presence in large, under-penetrated markets with high growth potential and is available at a reasonable valuation against its peers.

The company will continue to provide loans only to retail clients for the purchase or construction of independent homes as part of its risk mitigation strategy.
