The House of Kalam, Space Zone India, and Martin Group have joined forces to organise the Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam Satellite Launch Vehicle Mission 2023. Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam had a dream about the expedition. On February 19, 2023, a rocket will launch a total of 150 pico satellites from Pattipuram in Tamil Nadu. This is thought to be the first educational experiment in history to be officially recorded in the World Book of Records.
As part of the Satellite Launch Vehicle Mission 2023, over 20 students from Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC) schools will take part in this mission to build satellites. It aims to pique students’ interest in space technology while they are still enrolled in school. This mission will involve over 5,000 students from class V to class XII from all throughout the nation.
Students taking part in this endeavour receive online instruction in building micro rockets and satellites. Also soon, Nagpur will host a workshop on satellite construction. These youngsters will travel to Chennai after the programme to actually build rockets.
