Kalpana Chawla, who illuminates the name of India by NASA’s space, Sunita Williams knows everyone. Shyam Bhaskaran of Mumbai has done the same job that honors India. Shyam was part of NASA’s historic flyby mission, which passed on January 1 by unknown object Ultima Thule. Ultima Thule is the highest distance object in our solar system.
New Horizon was released from Earth on January 2006. Bhaskaran also played a role in navigating this flyby mission. Let us know that Shyam Bhaskaran works in NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. He was born in 1963 in Matunga, Mumbai. Bhaskaran has navigated NASA’s many missions before this.
The mission was full of challenges
Prior to the mission, Bhaskaran had said that if compared to Pluto’s flyby on July 14, 2015, it would be easy because there are no big things around it. On the challenges in the mission, Bhaskaran had said that this is not easy because before that NASA did not go to anything that was not only about information and which is so small and full of darkness. Bhaskaran said that finding the Ultima Thule was itself a challenge.
Tell us that the light on the Ultima Thule is so light and it is so far away that scientists have no idea of its size and shape at the moment. But by going to New Horizon now, many secrets can get curtain because he will also send some of his photographs.
According to the information, on January 1, New Horizon Spacecraft flew about 3,500 kilometers from Ultima Thule. Earlier, Bhaskaran had spoken to the Navigation team on Sunday morning that all the work was going on well.
Want to come to Mumbai
In a conversation with the Times of India, Bhaskaran had told that he still remembers his days when he lived in Kenilworth, located on the Peddar Road in Mumbai. At that place there was a department of atomic energy. His father used to work in Bhabha Atomic Research Center.
In 1968, Bhaskaran left India and shifted to the US. Meanwhile, in 1981, he came back to Mumbai to meet his relatives. Then he had found that Mumbai has changed quite a lot. Recalling that moment, Bhaskaran had said, ‘I saw that Mumbai was a big city. There the crowd had increased a lot. Yes, I would like to go there again. ‘
