Career Video on Space Technology

In a video, A.S. Kiran Kumar has talked about various aspects of a Career in Space Technology. A.S. Kiran Kumar started by explaining Space Technology as: "Space technology is technology developed by space science or the aerospace industry for use in spaceflight, satellites, or space exploration. Space technology includes spacecraft, satellites, space stations, and support infrastructure, equipment, and procedures." I watched the full video and I absolutely loved it.


I found the video unique because it talked about Education in terms of things which can be learnt from books, to excel at a Career in Space Technology and not as a list of Qualifications, which one needs to get into Space Technology. A.S. Kiran Kumar touches upon these in the Education section of the Video:
  • Resource Management
  • Technology Applications
  • Economics
  • Engineering
  • Multidisciplinary Knowledge
Skills are the most important factor determining success in a particular Career.
A.S. Kiran Kumar then explains why these Skills are essential for a Career in Space Technology:
  • Research
  • Communication
  • Simulation
  • Time Management
  • Risk Management
  • Teamwork
It is important to get an understanding of the Positives of this Career.
A.S. Kiran Kumar believes that the following are some of the Positives of a Career in Space Technology:
  • International Exposure
  • Respect and Recognition
  • Final Frontier
  • Exciting Work Environment
Challenges are the other side of Positives and this Career is no exception.
And, A.S. Kiran Kumar believes that one needs to prepare for following Challenges of a Career in Space Technology:
  • Long Gestation Period
  • Resource Constraints
  • Unknown Territory
