❝It is an inspiration post for me. Whenever I read it, I feel that every person on Earth has the capability to do incredible things if they follow their passion. She was the first Indian woman astronaut who broke the stereotype that women can’t go to space and inspired millions to touch space. It reminds me, that there’s no other way than hard work to achieve your dreams. Also, motivates me to do better every day.❞

❝The post is about my new position at the Space Robotics Laboratory, Tohoku University. I am fortunate enough to get this unique and amazing opportunity to work under the guidance of world-renowned space robotics researcher and professor Kazuya Yoshida.
