"We want to create a culture of fearlessly thinking, designing, and building ideas in the field of space research. Just like space, we will never have any boundaries on thinking, which will lead us toward the great ideas. We will work honestly and morally to bring those ideas into the motion. We want to spread the power of optimism in the community where we serve and we will expand the community day by day."
Achievements of SPACE Club
Pace Exploration is Force of Nature
Space Club Working model (2021)
In the space club, we had a division called Rocket and Satellite. This was from 2017-18. Where both divisions almost have the same structure of working and subsystems but different projects. In mid-year of 2018 upper management took a decision to merge both the divisions to share knowledge and expertise in subsequent subsystems. After this change, the club was able to attend the new heights in upcoming projects. Now in the year 2021, the club still works under the same model. There was always an addition of new members through college from each new batch.
The first-year batch works on their basics to join the subsystems, the second and third-year batch works on the projects and last year batch works on the management of projects and Leading all activity. This model ensures that each year there are sufficient members to work on projects and to maintain the club activities. Due to this model, we are able to transfer all the important details to the next batch easily. As part of activities added some non-technical and technical sessions for the development of club members in all directions.
The Year of 2021:
As per the literature survey that was done in the previous year we started working on actual models of rockets for 3km height. This all in focus to make an attempt to achieve the goal of cloud seeding. We completed our on-paper survey and designing of rockets for the cloud seeding project. We need some special permission to launch the rockets above 1km. There is also a need for some initial capital to make models and testing. Also started studying movable fins and hybrid propulsion study for the rocket.
Static Test of Motor:
For understanding the basic concept behind rocket propulsion we have taken the static test of the rocket motor. From this activity, they got knowledge about how to prepare rocket fuel and the basic concepts behind it.
Can Sat Activity:
We are able to perform the successful activity of can sat for the SY students. A Can Sat is a type of sounding rocket payload used to teach space technology. It is similar to the technology used in miniaturized satellites. No Can Sat has ever left the atmosphere, nor orbited the earth.
Weekly sessions are designed in such a way that it will help all members to improve their soft skills like presentation, speaking in front of a crowd and help them building confidence themselves. In weekly sessions, one of the members of the club prepares scientific, technical, or nontechnical trending topics. Then the topics were explained by him/her to other club members.
In nontechnical sessions, all club members discuss current affairs which will definitely help them to enhance the skills required for group discussion in interviews.
Whiteboard activity is designed to discuss topics that are not generally discussed but play a vital role in our day-to-day life. Where we let everyone put their own views. And at the end of the day, we discuss their views. Some of the questions we discussed as below:
In the orientation program, we gave a brief introduction of the club to first-year students and how to work as a team. Also share information about the recruitment process and how the club will benefit them.
