I recently tweeted looking out for people in the civilian nuclear energy space:
Do share any people you may know about on Twitter. Thanks in advance.
India has developed reasonable capabilities in space. It is now embarking on developing a civilian space sector. In the strategic sector, India has developed a Defence Space Agency and Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO). It has secured communication and remote sensing capabilities.
The importance of the space sector is to continue reliable communication, navigation and remote sensing capabilities without having to depend on foreign countries. It is also to build and develop products and services in India that can be provided to the world at competitive prices.
I think we may be late on this path but we are on the right path with respect to space.
India needs to grow. India needs energy for this growth. Meeting these energy needs using hydrocarbons is not sustainable.
I think nuclear will form a large percentage of sustainable energy production in the country.
Quantum is important for research and computing today. But, in the future, there will be quantum computers that will need Indian expertise to operate and program.
My understanding of Quantum and Nuclear is limited. I have not been watching these fields as closely as I have watched Space. What I have listed above are my assumptions. This is the starting point for my thinking about these fields.
