Pakistan has become the first foreign country to use China based GPS system made by BeiDou.

Chinese-GPS can provide positioning with accuracy of up to two centimeters and the accuracy can extend up to five millimeters after post-processing.

In times of war, we can't depend on American GPS for our smart weapons and cruise missiles.

And in times of peace, this is far more useful because of it's unmatched accuracy and stronger signal compared to older American GPS.

Made-in-Pakistan footballs will represent Pakistan's contribution to the world's most-watched sporting event -- the FIFA World Cup.

According to Brazilian Ambassador Alfredo Leoni, there is potential for cooperation between Brazil and Pakistan in terms of football coaching and training -- a transfer of skills that might one day see the Pakistan national team qualify for the world's biggest sporting contest. read more

Sorcerers continue to thrive despite the disapproval of religious scholars. read more

Paleontologists in Argentina's remote Patagonia region have discovered fossils of what may be the largest dinosaur ever.

The creature is believed to be a new species of Titanosaur, a long-necked, long-tailed sauropod that walked on four legs and lived some 95 million years ago in the Cretaceous Period.

Researchers say the plant-eating dinosaur weighed the equivalent of more than 14 African elephants, or about 100 tonnes, and stretched up to 40 meters (130 feet) in length.
