China and Pakistan have been agreed to construct a satellite for monitoring routes of China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
Last week, a national conference on space science and technology was established by the Institute of Space and Planetary Astrophysics (ISPA), the University of Karachi at Arts Auditorium KU. In the conference the minister of Sindh for transport Syed Nasir Hussain Shah has revealed that:
“Our ministry is using space technology to monitor the road system and the port management as well,”
Faculty member of Geography department, professor Dr. Jamil Hasan Kazmi said that most of the areas of the Karachi contain hills due to which two third of the city was not populated.
Further, during his speech on the importance of Space science, he said:
“Citizens suffered heat stroke last year due to inefficient material usage in the construction of high-rise buildings of the city. Karachi has become a heat island. The difference of temperature reaches up to five degrees from Malir to Defense or Clifton.”
Another professor, from Institute of Space and Planetary Astrophysics (ISPA), also expressed his research work in conference. Dr. Shahid Qureshi said that the Jews and Hindus have been using pre-calculated lunar calendars for centuries.
Further, he said:
“Muslims on the basis of their faith do not use such pre-calculated lunar calendars for religious purposes. Global lunar calendar is not practical scientifically, socially and from perspective of religious aspects,”
Professors of Geography department, Professor Dr. Jamil Kazmi, Dr. Salman Zubair and Dr. Lubna Ghazal, has put their research work in front and described that 65 percent of the schools of the Karachi have an inappropriate location. Due to inappropriate locations, students are always in danger of an incident.
