Bengaluru: Exhorting students to develop scientific temper, Indian space agency’s top executive K. Sivan on Monday hoped the space programme for the youth would produce a good number of scientists every year.
The programme will impart basic knowledge on space technology, space science and space applications to the students with a view to arousing interest in the emerging areas of space activities.
The students are attending the residential training programme at the space agency’s four centres — Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre at Thiruvananthapuram in Kerala; U R Rao Satellite Centre in Bengaluru, Space Applications Centre (SAC) at Ahmedabad in Gujarat and North Eastern Space Applications Centre (NESAC) at Shillong in Meghalaya.
The students will also visit on May 17 the Satish Dhawan Space Centre spaceport at Shriharikota in Andhra Pradesh, about 80km northeast of Chennai.
“I wish our novel Yuvika space programme to produce a good number of scientists every year as it leads to national integration and nation building,” Sivan told about 110 students from across the country through a video mode from here.
