Yesterday, 1st December, 2012 Bangalore witnessed it’s first SpaceUp India, unconferrence event on space.

It was good to see space and related things happening in India and specially in Bangalore.

Another highlight was about universities building satellites. At SpaceUp, 4 university shown their project details and it was quite interesting. Other sessions on astronomy and biomechanics (for earth aswell as for space) were also good and detailed.
