On Wednesday, 23rd August 2023, the entire nation was glued up to their mobile screens for the live telecast of the landing of Chandrayan Mission 3, and so was KIET Group of Institutions and its family. The Centre of Excellence for Space Missions and the team of Dean Student Welfare collaboratively made live streaming arrangements at the campus’ auditorium, so that all the faculty/ staff members and students could witness and celebrate this historical moment like One Proud Indian Family.
Exactly at 6:04PM, when Vikram Lander successfully made a soft landing at the moon’s south pole, everyone at the auditorium was thrilled with joy. Everyone hugged each other and celebrated the spirit of being the citizen of India. Sweets and other refreshments were also distributed in the entire campus.
On this occasion, Dr. Manoj Goel, Joint Director, KIET said, “The success of Chandrayan 3 is not just the success of the ISRO scientists, it is also the success of each and every person living in this country. I congratulate everyone for this victory and hope that the young blood of the nation will continue creating such historic moments in the future.” “I would also like to thank the team of Space Missions CoE for coordinating and making all the arrangements related to the live streaming on campus.”, he added.
Dr. Parvin Kumar Kaushik, Assistant Dean (R&D) said, “I am filled with pride when I say that india is the first country to land on moon’s south pole. ISRO’s contribution towards the space missions of the nations have always been commendable, and I truly believe that we have a long way to go. Few months ago, we signed an MoU with the Space Applications Centre (SAC) of ISRO, in order to strengthen the academic and research interaction. As per the MoU, KIET and SAC-ISRO shall be collaborating for project-based learning, joint research projects, internships, and courses with the SAC scientists. This collaboration will bring great benefits for our students, and I believe that one day, our students will also be contributing in exploring new studies related to space.”
Dr. Satish Kumar, Dean Student Welfare also expressed his thoughts by saying, “The Pragyan Rover is all set to explore the lunar surface and carry out a variety of experiments. KIET wishes the best to all the scientists of ISRO.”
The program ended with a Vote of Thanks from the Space Missions CoE Team and national anthem. Everyone dispersed with a big smile and pride in heart. All the deans, heads, functional heads, along with faculty and staff members from different members were present at the auditorium.
