Siddharth Pandey Selected as an Emerging Space Leader
The International Astronautical Federation sponsors a grant program for Emerging Space Leaders, which enable students and young professionals to participate in the International Astronautical Congress each year. This year, our own Siddharth Pandey was selected as one of 14 grant recipients, which will allow him to attend the IAC in Jerusalem this year and extend his network with professionals in the space industry.
Siddharth is helping to coordinate joint Astrobiological field research and workshops in India with support from research groups in the U.S., Australia, New Zealand, and India. His goal is to promote scientific collaboration between groups in India and abroad while also increasing planetary science and off-Earth surface exploration research exposure among Indian university students.
