NASA Human Exploration Rover Challenge features an engineering design challenge to engage students worldwide in the next phase of human space exploration  This year NASA selected our proposal and invited our team to Huntsville, Alabama, USA in April, 2021.

The vision of this program is to engage school students in Satellite designing. We aim to develop and launch a NanoSat named  NaPSAT 1.0 (Navonmesh Prasar Satellite) to space.

Our Journey

Overall Project 60%
Rover Construction 70%
Fund Raised 35%

Our journey started when we selected 10 brilliant students from villages and towns of Odisha to send a proposal to NASA. This year, NASA has approved the proposal of our dedicated team comprising of high school & ITI students from different remote locations of India, thus making us the first interdisciplinary U19 team to proudly represent our country and carry our flag proudly.

We’ve completed the construction of the entire rover. While we are actively gearing up for this challenge, we need your help to make our efforts go even further! We would like to humbly appeal you to help us in any possible way so we may inch closer towards this dream of creating history by making India win at NASA HERC.
