Post 2 Y地agar students enter Limca book

Two M. Tech students from the city have made it to the Limca Book of Records for proposing methods for space debris mitigation.
Nishant Arora and Sourabh Kaushal, both 25 years old, had started studying the phenomenon of debris randomly floating in the space in 2008 and proposed the methods in 2010, becoming the first Indians to do so.
They are in the final year of M. Tech in electronics and communication engineering at the Institute of Engineering and Technology, Kalawar, Yamunanagar.
鄭t present, there are nearly 35,000 pieces of junk in space having a size greater than 10 cm, while some are as small as a millimeter. The debris may collide with satellites and pose a threat to the life of astronauts, said Nishant.
展e proposed some techniques to clean the space junk. De-orbit kit technology, use of nano-tube mesh technique using laser and nanobots, recycling of space junk and energy production from space junk are some of them, Sourabh said.
Vice-President Hamid Ansari and Indian business tycoon Ratan Tata have appreciated their work.
Their research work caught the attention of the US government. The US embassy invited them to attend a select gathering to listen to US President Barack Obama痴 speech in Delhi last year.
The two students have received a number of awards, including Kalpana Chawla Young Scientist Award, Youth Revolutionary Award and Young Innovator Award, for their research.
Both want support from government to continue their research.
展e want more youths to take interest in space technology. We are planning to set up innovation labs for to create opportunities for the youth in the field of science, technology and research, but our plan can稚 take shape unless the government helps us, Nishant said.
