ONLINE INTERACTION WITH AN ASTRONAUT

 

SPACE has conducted an online interaction program "The Journey to Mars" on July 26, 2017 (Wednesday) for the Astronomy club Students, both "KRITHIKA" and "ROHINI". The SPACE tie-up schools from all over India participated in this event. Students from our School rocked by posting many queries.

The interaction was with Dr. Karthik Kumar, an Analog Astronaut, Austrian Space Forum. He is also a co-founder and CEO of satsearch.co, a space start-up.

The hangout, from The Netherlands, started at 12 Noon (IST). Before the commencement of the interaction, Mr. Hanuman Venkata Sai, the SPACE educator gave a brief introduction about the astronaut. Dr. Karthik Kumar, shared a few informations about "Mars Analog Mission", in which he is involved. Later, queries from the students were collected and the same were posted into the Google Hangout. Mr. Tarun (Gurgaon)  and Ms. Mila Mitra (New Delhi), SPACE members, directed the questions to the astronaut.

The Frequently Asked Questions were:

  • What is the training provided to become an analog astronaut?
  • Can we set up our colonies in Mars in 20's and 30's?
  • What is the training provided to go to Mars?

The astronaut's answers, for the queries were quite interesting and the  session got over by 1.15 p.m. the students had a great time.
