The event started with a Welcome address by Ms. Krithika, a member of the Media team of SEDS KCT. The session was then handed over to the speaker, Mr. Subash Kuppusamy who then shared his knowledge on Airbreathing Rocket Propulsion.
Some of the highlights of his speech are,
- 86% of Rocket’s mass comes from the propellant. 70% of it is an oxidizer.
- We can drastically reduce the weight of the fuel can be oxidized with the help of Oxygen present in the air.
- ISRO is currently working on this technique as it reduces the cost of a rocket.
The last part of the session was Q/A where the audience shot out their queries and doubts in Rocket Propulsion.
A feedback form was then circulated in the chatbox and Certificates were provided to those who filled the form. The session finally ended by thanking the Speaker and audience who made this event a successful one.
Thanks and Regards.
