Arunachal Pradesh Chief Minister Pema Khandu has congratulated two alumni of Itanagar-based North East Regional Institute of Science and Technology (NERIST), who were part of the ISRO team that conducted India’s successful moon mission – Chandrayaan-3.

Pankaj Nath, a 1990 batch alumnus of the institute, was a member of the ISRO team that designed the landing propulsion of Chandrayaan-3. Another former NERIST student from the same batch, Subrata Chakraborty, is also a member of the ISRO team that designs and develops spacecraft valves.

Very proud of Shri Pankaj Nath, ISRO Scientist & one of the brilliant minds who designed the landing propulsion of #Chandrayaan-3. The chief minister, in a post on Twitter earlier, said Mr Nath had completed his BTech and MTech from NERIST in 1990.

NERIST is a deemed-to-be university under the Ministry of Education, Government of India.

The Chief Minister said, I am equally excited about another NERIST passout, Shri Subrata Chakraborty of 1990-batch, for making invaluable contribution to this ambitious project…Let us uphold the excellence of our prestigious institution.

On August 23, India created history with Chandrayaan 3, which became the first mission to land on the uncharted south pole of Earth’s only natural satellite.
