Hints to Remember

What: join hands to let users connect to nearby Wi-Fi hotspots
When: published on 4th October 2019

Even though there is a horde of Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in India, public Wi-Fi is not adequately available to the country’s lengths. Two of the leading companies have now joined hands to facilitate users in locating Wi-Fi hotspots in their area. BSNL and Paytm have collaborated for a smart Wi-Fi discovery feature that will be available to the app users of the latter. Paytm users will be prompted whenever there is a BSNL Wi-Fi hotspot nearby, in addition to an option to buy packs and check the data usage.

When a Paytm user enters a location served by BSNL’s Wi-Fi Internet, a message pops up on the screen inside the app. Tapping on the message will take the user to the login setup where a Wi-Fi plan can be purchased. Once Wi-Fi is active on the user’s number, Paytm app will track the data usage so that it is not maxed out. The validity of the plan will also be shown to the user within the app. The app will also show if the user is accessing the Wi-Fi Internet in roaming.

Hints to Remember

Who: ISRO
What: to hold space-docking experiment next year, a step towards setting up space station
When: published on 3rd October 2019

Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) is now gearing up to conduct a space docking experiment (Spadex) next year.

Talking to TOI, Isro chairman K Sivan says, “We are going to conduct a docking experiment next year in which two experimental modules will be sent to space (on board a PSLV rocket) and the two will be made to dock with each other in space.”

The space agency has to master the complex docking technology as it is an essential building-block process for setting up the country’s own space station and sending humans to that station. It involves latching of one satellite with another with the help on-board cameras and constant monitoring by the earth station. The process is complex as it involves controlling the speed of the two satellites and bringing them together so that they can dock and become a larger structure.
