Dr. B R Guruprasad, a distinguished scientist from the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), delivered an enlightening and inspirational talk titled ‘Chandrayaan 3: India's Inspiring Mission to Moon’ at Vidyashilp University, Bengaluru. The event, attended by students from various esteemed institutions including Vidyashilp Academy, Legacy School, and Bangalore International School, left an indelible mark on the young minds.
During his lecture, Dr. Guruprasad explained to the students the journey of the exploration of the moon through robotic spacecraft as well as astronauts. He taught the students how in the space age, the moon is considered a key to understanding the history of the Earth and the solar system. He traced the Moon's historical significance in navigation and timekeeping, comparing it with its modern role in unlocking the mysteries of Earth's history and the solar system.
With his extensive experience in Satellite Mission Planning, Analysis, and Operations, Dr. Guruprasad provided a rare glimpse into the world of lunar exploration. The Chandrayaan program, a testament to India's dedication to space exploration, was a focal point of the talk. He discussed the remarkable achievement of Chandrayaan 3, which recently made history by successfully landing in the Moon's South polar region. This achievement not only solidified India's position as the fourth country to land a spacecraft on the Moon but also the first to touch down in its south polar region.
