Shocking news of accident from the apex scientific institute of our countryYesterday, I came across one news item regarding a fatal accident that took place in the Aerospace laboratory of the premier scientific institution - Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bengaluru.
During the work on a research project study on shock waves, the accident took place in the Aerospace laboratory and one researcher died on and three others were injured.
This is, I think, first of its kind in such a reputed place and raises a serious concern for safety in high end research laboratories. Any research in the area of high temperature, pressure, nuclear or magnetism requires certain basic safety procedures to keep in mind as otherwise some enthusiastic researchers may in their hurry can do some mistakes or even blunders in their excitement.
What are in your opinion the necessary precautions and cautions those people should take or advised to take who are working in such hazardous environment?
