Everyday, youngsters from India are proving their mettle against their counterparts from across the world. Introducing to you one such student duo who have represented India in International Space Conferences and brought laurels for our country.
Space debris, also known as space junk is the collection of objects in orbit around Earth that were created by humans but no longer serve any useful purpose. It is a potential collision risk to operational spacecraft and hence its mitigation is of significant importance.
Sourabh Kaushal and Nishant Arora, two final year Electronics and Communication engineers from Kurukshetra University, Haryana, have proposed new cutting-edge space debris mitigation technology–one of which has the potential to harness energy from the left over junk.
Their research paper on Space Debris was runner up in “Jerome Pearson Award 2010” by ISEC,USA . They received the Dr. Kalpana Chawla Young Scientist Award 2012 which was given by Late Dr. Kalpana Chawla’s Father Sh. Banarasi Das ji. They have presented their paper in international conferences by NASA, ISRO, Microsoft, ISEC, JAXA and ESA. Their research paper got selected in 11 international conferences within 2years. Also, they have received appreciation letter from ISRO ,Centre for Space Research USA, HSP etc.

Personally I feel such representatives of India should be given at least the same amount of importance(if not more) than Bollywood actors representing India at International Film Festivals. I hope that day is not too far when Indians come to know about such young achievers before they read about how an actor dressed at an event..
