Bengaluru, Jan. 29: “Currently, the outer space requires bigger attention. Now, the alarming situation is that there is a lot of garbage in space. When I say space garbage, it is none other than space debris. As per the latest analysis, there are 30,000 objects of more than one centimetre in size and moving at a speed of 8 km per second. If the debris continues, then the space can soon become worse than Bengaluru roads,” said
Dr. V K Anandan (Deputy Director, ISRO, ISTRAC Radar Development Area (RDA).

Speaking at the Graduation Day-2023 program organised by Dayananda Sagar Institutions he says, “Today, I am saying this because there are lots of job opportunities for students to work in the space sector. The business for Space situational awareness and space traffic management is currently estimated to be of $ 10 billion and this may go up to $ 125 billion by 2030. This will provide a lot of opportunities for space start-ups in future. Out of the space sector business, we are expecting 10 pc businesses to happen in India as currently it is a mere 1 to 2 pc.”

More than 7 thousand professionals from over a dozen disciplines and specialties were seen marching out from the portals of the DSI Campus to receive the certificates.

Dr D Hemachandra Sagar (Chairman, Dayananda Sagar Institutions and Chancellor Dayananda Sagar University) and Dr D Premachandra Sagar (Vice Chairman, Dayananda Sagar Institutions and Pro-Chancellor Dayananda Sagar University) were present.
