On insta ,we need more engagement , give regular shootout to insta account on Twitter ,also i will start posting , some points from discussion from drdo and amca specifically .Ya'll Nibbiars on the Koo's there are only 91 Follower's.
Post it at ISRO Thread.Indian astronomers have tracked a rare supernova explosion and traced it to one of the hottest kind of stars called Wolf–Rayet stars or WR stars.

A group of astronomers have discovered a dozen quasars that have been warped by a naturally occurring cosmic "lens" and split into four similar images.
This rare discovery increases the number of known quasars or quads by about 25 percent and can help determine the expansion rate of the universe and help address other mysteries. Quasars are extremely luminous cores of distant galaxies that are powered by supermassive black holes. Quadruply imaged quasars are rare, and the first quadruple image was discovered in 1985. Over the past four decades, astronomers had found about fifty of these “quadruply imaged quasars” or quads for short, which occur when the gravity of a massive galaxy that happens to sit in front of a quasar splits its single image into four.
The study by Gaia Gravitational Lenses Working Group (GraL) of astronomers, which included scientists from Aryabhatta Research Institute of Observational Sciences (ARIES), Nainital, an autonomous institute of Department of Science and Technology, spanning only a year and a half, demonstrates the power of machine-learning to assist astronomers in their search for these cosmic jewels. It has been accepted for publication in ‘The Astrophysical Journal’.
"The quads are gold mines for all sorts of questions. They can help determine the expansion rate of the universe and help address other mysteries, such as dark matter and quasar 'central engines'," says Daniel Stern, lead author of the new study and a research scientist at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory USA.
DRDO Hammer PGM equivalent....
I posted some of your info here with credit to you in description on dfi Instagram , if you have objection i will remove it , also if you want me to tag you in posts please pm me you insta idCould be
But my impression is different
Hammer is a family of munitions, range is around 60 km
I suspect since the PGM is winged its range could be 100 km or more , given that all DRDO winged PGMs till date have range of 100 km when released at high altitudes
Plus there is a small possibility that the PGM is powered so range could be more especially when released at low altitudes ( where generally range decreases drastically )
But its my personal opinion, so i could be wrong also
Weapon package mostly with few LRUs.View attachment 84464View attachment 84465
CAS visited Bengaluru & interacted with test crew of Aircraft & Systems Testing Establishment & software engineers of Software Development Institute. He reviewed ongoing projects & flew a Su-30MKI to witness the capability enhancement on successful completion of one such project.
Integration of something
I believe that's Gautham itself. With 100 km of glide range, its already an effective PGSOW.A new powered long range winged PGM under development ?
The bomb seen in the AMCA IWB pic posted in my previous post could be a new long range winged PGM under development.
It has a single piece pivoting wing which adds the small possibility that the PGM might be self-powered with an integrated propulsion unit.
Prominent blunt nose cone possibly for IIR or other seekers.

Credibility to the above is added by the fact that in all possibility ADA will only include confirmed weapon systems for AMCA's internal weapons bay or external carriage aerodynamic studies / stimulations etc because such exercises are time consuming and require lot of effort.
