Our own Manas Mukherjee stars in a new kids' TV series, presenting CQT as "the coolest place on the equator"! The show on local channel okto is inspired by the powers of superheroes. In this episode, Manas explains how he uses lasers to make atoms extremely cold - like a superhero with cryo powers. Watch on-demand at the link.

Title: The evolution of Space Systems Engineering from Apollo to SpaceX
Date/Time: 12 Dec, 04:00 PM
Venue: CQT Level 3 Seminar room, S15-03-15
Abstract: The successful deployment of a satellite of space probe is a challenging due to both the complexity of the technology, the finality of the launch and the hostile (and uncertain) environment of space. The period since the 1960's has seen a growth in our capability build complex systems and also a even greater growth in our demands from such system, on the ground and in space. Systems Engineering is a discipline that copes with the complexity of system but has it got out of control with the cost and timescales of science satellites escalating while companies such as SpaceX, SSTL and others appear to have found another, cheaper approach. What is Systems Engineering role in 'New Space' and how should the conventional space agencies adapt to these apparent innovations.
