In his two talks beginning at 4.00 PM, Dr. Narain will first trace the history of India's remote sensing program and then follow it up with a presentation on India's recent unmanned moon mission. India's space program has made significant progress over the years in launch vehicle development, pay loads for communication and remote sensing, and recently joined an exclusive club of few countries that have capabilities to orbit and study the moon.
Much of this has been achieved by the various centers of the Indian Space Research Organization and technology transfer to the private industries. The talks will cover how India's space program has resulted in societal benefits through management of natural resources, tele-education and tele-medicine.
