The zeroth review was fruitfully completed. Over fifty six project proposals were received out of which thirty nine projects were presented for the review. The Ré team had an arduous time organizing the review, by arranging the panel members and inviting the students. The projects were evaluated by the panel members and their suggestions were given for enhancement of their projects. The approved projects will be funded and taken to the next level. Ré will be giving full support to these projects.

INDIA 2020:

Look at the sky. We are not alone. The whole universe is friendly to us and conspires only to give the best to those who dream and work.

-A. P. J. Abdul Kalam

His Excellency Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam, the Former President of India and a world-renowned Space scientist, was keen on encouraging the students in India to take active interest in the emerging Technologies, including Space Tech, as these significantly impact our daily lives. For India to continue to make impressive strides and develop leadership roles in Space Technology, the youth of India must get interested and deeply involve in Space Technology, Cube Satellites, Micro-gravity Research, etc. This nationwide competition is to encourage and stimulate that enthusiasm in Space Technology and operational Cube Satellites among the youth of India, as envisioned by Dr. Abdul Kalam. His death is a great loss to the country but this remarkable person will always remain in our heart forever.
