Presentation on Rocket Launching by NASA scientist

If we retreat to our childhood, we all have wonderstruck moments of enjoying the blue sky, the smiling moon and the twinkling stars. Ever since celestial bodies have been hammering the curiosity of mankind and it tugs at the imagination of man. Space exploration has the potential of discovering new concepts and phenomena about space. These activities resolve mysteries about everything that surrounds the Earth.
Mr.Pramod Nayate who was associated with NASA, paid a visit to our campus on 10 March 2015 and conducted an interactive session on Rocket Science. This program gave us a depth understanding about the realities and facts of Space science and building and working of rockets which were mere illusions and imaginations for us. Mr.Pramod tried to explain how the rockets are designed and assembled and how thousands of engineers and scientist work day and night to carry out different space missions of NASA. Mr.Pramod elaborated on how Space exploration has been benefiting mankind in many ways. He emphasized that space travel should not be viewed as a waste of resources, time, or money etc. He also encouraged students in learning space science and to become astronauts like Kalpana Chawla, Sunita Williams and Rakesh Sharma etc.
 As MIT is always trying to cater the needs of students with more innovative and technical methods, these types of programs really enrich the knowledge as well as enthusiasm of young minds. Mr.Pramod appreciated the interest of students in knowing more and more about Space Science also he promised to visit us during his next visit to India as it is his passion to share his knowledge and experience with the youth of India.
Mr David, Recharge Labs (USA), Jason Young , CEO, Nanosynth Materials and Sensors, (USA) and Dr Swomitra Mohanty, Assistant Professor, University of Utah, USA also participated in the discussions.
It was really one of the worth mentioning program for the entire campus that was arranged MIT VGS Pandharpur which has benefited both student and teacher community enormously.
