When there are options to visit a space museum elsewhere, the advantage we provide is real time experience.
The entire program is the brain child of Dr.A.Sivathanu Pillai the Indian Space Scientist who is also called as the father of BrahMos. BrahMos is the Joint Venture between India and Russia and is the world’s 1st super-sonic missile program.
Dr.Pillai is keen and determined to provide an opportunity for students to enhance their knowledge in space and experience the advance technologies and landscape achieved by human kind in the field of Cosmonology. Under his guidance and efforts of Mr.Thangappan, Secretary General of IRCCI, we have conceived this unique opportunity for our students.
IRCCI and Indo Russian Travel Club is closely associated with Russia and has operated tours to Russia for more than 3 decades.
This student and teacher program has been created to utilise the power of the human space programme to encourage young people to:
Increase individual and personal ambitions
Aim higher in academic achievement
Understand what humans are capable of achieving
Place a greater value on scientific, mathematical and technological achievement
