Staff Reporter

Nagercoil: The Mechanical Department of Wins Engineering College in Chunkankadai near Nagercoil conducted a national-level technical symposium – Mystique’ 9 recently and it evoked good response. Students in large numbers from other colleges participated in the symposium.

Presiding over the symposium, the scientist of Indian Space Research Organisation at Mahendragiri, Gowri Shankar said that following the success of Chandrayan I, the ISRO and Bhabha Atomic Research Organizations were working together for using N-energy as the new fuel for Chandrayan II.

The ISRO was planning to power the spacecraft Chandrayan II with N-energy.

When the spacecraft revolved around the moon then this would have many challenges and cares throughout the orbit stages. It was decided to form an indigenous spacecraft, which was capable of carrying men and also form re-usable spacecrafts, he said.

The correspondent of the college, Nanjil Vincent appealed the students to conduct research on nano-technology in the mechanical field.

Students from various colleges submitted 46 research papers and of them a three-member team of the college accepted only 21 papers.
