Chandigarh, May 12

The Central Scientific Instruments Organisation (CSIO) celebrated National Technology Day today by holding an open day and organising a special scientific lecture.

All the laboratories at the CSIO were kept open for general public before noon and a large number of visitors, including students from various schools, colleges and universities, went around the institute where they interacted with scientists. The visitors were apprised of the technologies available and being pursued at the CSIO.

Later, Surinder Singh, Director, Semi-Conductor Laboratory (SCL), delivered a lecture on “Overview of Space Systems and Technologies”. He described the space systems in a very concise and easily understandable way. He gave an overview of launchers and Earth orbiting satellites for remote sensing, communication and navigation. He also discussed deep space missions, the Mars Mission and future trends in space exploration.

In his address, Dr Amod Kumar, acting Director, CSIO, emphasised that scientific research should be for the benefit of society. He said technology by itself was neither good nor bad, but it was the application of technology that made it so.
