The article presents several developments related to technological innovations. American investment firm Crestridge and charity Concern for Kids plan to introduce at least 22 of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's purification systems to South-East Asia and Iraq. The device can be carried by trailer between villages to clean wells and water sources, or installed as a larger permanent system. The Indian Space Research Organisation and ESA have agreed to co-operate on India's first Moon mission, Chandrayaan-1. Dundee University has opened a Space Technology Centre that will carry out advanced research into planetary landing simulators, and develop support technology for space missions.
