Idea exchange

Ideas can change lives. Arun Lakshmanan and Ashwin Sundaram Ramesh from Vellore Institute of Technology, Vellore, Tamil Nadu, have come up with an idea that uses space technology and can be replicated in normal life for the benefit of common people. "Our idea was to use NASA's spin-off technology to create something that would benefit people at large.

In space, there is a complicated system of disposing waste. We used a similar technology and came up with the idea for suction in toilets for the Indian Railways. We have submitted a pre-idea using cheap material that can be scaled up to benefit more people on a daily basis," explains Lakshmanan. The duo made a list of the technology spin-offs, drew up a system chart on how to convert the idea for the Indian Railways and made it into a two-and-a-half-minute video. "We made a collage. We shot, edited the video and provided the voice-over," informs Lakshmanan.

The competition, 'Reach for the Stars' was launched by The University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland. Lakshmanan and Ramesh will get a four-week all expenses paid trip to The University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, Scotland between June and July where they will join the Scottish Space School for a week of space related activities, meet NASA astronauts and like minded Space School attendees from around Scotland; meet the Formula Student Team; visit innovative companies and act as consultants and produce a report for a Scottish company, Steepest Ascent Ltd, among other activities.
