A key pre-requisite to starting a lunar simulation project is to have
enough people interested in it. The Chandrayaan mission has piqued
media interest in the Moon.
However, people still look at it through mysterious eyes. People think
Apollo 11 was a hoax. They don’t know that 12 people have gone to the
Moon. Even the amateur astronomy community does not know of many lunar
features on the Moon.
Under such circumstances, it is useful to get students interested.
Accordingly, we plan to unveil a series of events and mini projects to
get things going. The announcements begin on October 4.
