+Srinivas Laxman let me know that the 30th anniversary flight of the cosmonaut Rakesh Sharma between April 2, 1984 and April 11, 1984 is this year. Since Sharma, we've had only two astronauts of Indian origin (American citizens) in space - Kalpana Chawla and Sunita Williams.

CanSat is a concept of having a sensor inside a Coke can. In the US, these are launched on an amateur rocket and recovered by using radio beacons. Unfortunately for us in India, our laws don't allow amateur rocketry practically. Hence, we have to adapt.

The essence of doing a CanSat is essentially to understand how sensors work and how data is captured in a moving environment that it senses. It provides a basic platform for learning things that would eventually be needed to learn how to build satellites.

That's what I'd like to work on! (I'm not an IBMer)
