We are happy to announce that after successfully completing three Space Talks in Dibrugarh University, Dibrugarh, Axam Jatya Vidyalaya, Guwahati and St Anthony's College in Shillong, FASS is now ready for another big one. We are now preparing for the next big Space Talk for next week which will be done in Manipur.

CAU being an Agricultural University, most of the students from CAU are from Agricultural field. There will be many questions which relate to Agriculture and how Space research can help us. The students in Arts are from Manipur University.
Mohen Naorem, our energetic and young FASS representative in Manipur is busy preparing for this great event. Last Sunday, we had a Dry Run of the event from our FASS office in Houston, Texas, and everything went well. Mohen told me that he is expecting about 500 audience for the event. He has sent out invitations to many local schools and colleges to attend the same. They are also planning to sing a a very popular Manipuri Lullaby for the entertainment of the Astronauts in the ISS.
There will be Video recording of the event as usual and a copy of the same will be sent to NASA for record.
Please wish your best for the event
