The main attraction of the celebration was a cosmonaut meet. As part of the meet, an inspirational talk was delivered by Mikhail Kornienko, Russian cosmonaut. He has shared his on-board International Space Station (ISS) experience with the students and teachers. He has shown many informative videos and images of his and his on-board colleagues who were involved in space activities and experiment on ISS. He beautifully narrated his journey of one-year mission with his American counterpart Scott Kelly on-board ISS. He also explained why this long duration space mission is very critical for further space exploration. This will be extremely helpful to understand how space environment affects human body both physically and mentally. He also talked about his personal experience of re-entry in the earth atmosphere and landing, and according him returning form ISS is more critical and dangerous. He appreciated Nehru Science Centre for promoting science and technology among public in general and students in particular.
