Description

We are starting a NewSpace India (www.newspaceindia.com) curated talk series 'Stellar Voices' that will provide an insightful analysis of the evolution of space science, technology/applications, entrepreneurship and policies in India. The talk series will invite leaders in the space sector of India who have pushed the boundaries in expanding the landscape of capacity built up in the country over the past five decades in creating a strong ecosystem in India for today's NewSpace.

The talk series will have a format of the speaker using personal memories (pictures/figures/moments) to provide an overview of their efforts and share insights of the progress made through their career within the country. The 45 min talk will be followed by an open house for participants to involve in a discussion to personally connect with the speaker and involve themselves in a cognisant exchange.
