Rockets of India

A session at Webstock 2016

Thursday 11th February, 2016

2:25pm to 2:55pm (NZMT)

Few months ago I roamed the streets of India with tiny Mars probes, speaking to strangers about space missions, aliens, climate change and nationalism. It was the start of a thrilling adventure exploring the history and future of India’s space program within the context of global geopolitics, militarization and cultural imperialism. From astronauts to afronauts, from cosmonauts to vyomanauts, how can deep space exploration inspire us to create more democratic future visions?

At Webstock I hope to share my journey from chaotic Indian streets to interstellar space.
