Zuma mission for US government

Central government is likely to declare Medaram’s Sammakka-Sarakka/Saralamma Jatara a national festival this year. Once declared a national festival, Jatara can be considered for ‘intangible cultural heritage of humanity’ tag of United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO).
Sammakka-Sarakka Jatara held by forest dwelling Koya tribe of Telangana and surrounding States, is the biggest Tribal festival in Asia which is attended by one crore people on an average.
Medaram is a remote place in the Eturnagaram Wildlife Sanctuary, a part of Dandakaranya, the largest surviving forest belt in the Deccan.

SpaceX successfully launches Zuma mission for US government
Elon Musk’s SpaceX launches its Zuma mission for US government from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida on a Falcon 9 rocket
Elon Musk’s Space Exploration Technologies Corp. successfully launched its first mission of the new year: a classified payload for the US government into low-earth orbit.
The mission—referred to as code name Zuma—took off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida on a Falcon 9 rocket. SpaceX landed the rocket’s first stage for reuse in a future launch, a key step in its goal to drive down the cost of access to space.
Defense contractor Northrop Grumman Corp. was assigned to choose which company would launch the restricted payload, and it selected SpaceX’s Falcon 9, calling it a cost effective option, said Lon Rains, a Northrop Grumman spokesman, in an emailed statement before the launch.
“As a company, Northrop Grumman realizes this is a monumental responsibility and we have taken great care to ensure the most affordable and lowest risk scenario for Zuma,” Rains said, declining to comment on the nature of the payload.
