Sourabh Kaushal: My passion for space science

Sourabh Kaushal believes that imagination needs no qualifications. As an engineering student, Kaushal was fascinated by space exploration, and grew particularly concerned with the risks posed by debris orbiting the earth. Watch how Kaushal went on to propose new methods for space debris mitigation and won multiple awards for his research.
