Union minister of state for science and technology and earth sciences, Jitendra Singh, inaugurated India’s first Open Rock Museum in the city. The museum displays around 35 different varieties of rocks from different parts of India, with ages ranging from 3.3 billion years to around 55 million years.


Incidentally, these rocks are from the core of the earth taken from the deepest parts up to 175 km of distance from the surface of our planet. Singh later addressed the scientists at CSIR-National Geophysical Research Institute (NGRI) and said that ‘Big Earth data’ occupy the strategic high ground in the era of knowledge economies and that India is fully exploiting this new frontier, contributing to the advancement of earth science.


He further added that geosciences contribute significantly towards self-reliance and national priorities in New India. He pointed out that the expectations from scientists are ever-growing, and scientists should continuously be involved in providing the best science and technology solutions.


Singh expressed hope that CSIR-NGRI’s future research efforts designed for deep earth and near-surface explorations are critical to understanding the processes responsible for shaping the earth’s structure and dynamics. He reiterated that CSIR-NGRI would play a pivotal role in fulfilling the aspirations of the nation in the coming years.
