Student of BIT Sindri made a band to track corona patients in India:

"The Vicinity Band" is an innovation by ABHINEET MISHRA, student of BIT Sindri and a Lemonoper with his team Rovoquad which he claims to be a perfect solution to end covid 19 pandemic in India. He says "The only way to contain its spread is to know the social history of the person diagnosed with the virus and quarantining those who have met with the patient in the recent past." They have designed a very economical wrist band (cost< Rs 500) which generates history of all the persons that came in the vicinity of the Covid 19 positive person within no time. This will help the local authorities to quarantine these persons immediately and prevent the spread of the disease. The idea is to target the districts that have been affected by coronavirus by at least a single case.

The idea works in the following steps:

-The Wrist bands are mass produced
-It is made mandatory to wear the bands
-Data collection starts
-If a person gets diagnosed with corona virus the Authorities will be informed

At present, local investors have approached them and they are also talking to local govt. officials.

the Apollo astronaut's footprints

The Apollo astronaut's footprints will stay on the moon for 100 million years:

The Apollo astronaut's footprints, roverprints and spaceship prints will stay preserved on the moon for at least the next 10 to 100 million years. They won’t stay on there forever, though. The Moon is exposed to bombardment by meteorites that could easily wipe out a footprint on the moon. The Moon is also exposed to solar wind and over time this acts almost like weather on Earth to scour surfaces on the moon, but the process is very, very slow. Slowly over time, first the tracks will disappear — they will all be ground into and mixed into the soil. From past studies of moon rocks collected by astronauts during the Apollo missions, researchers have learned that the rocks erode at a rate of about 0.04 inches every 1 million years.
On a parting note...
