Imran Khan has directed a short movie on the Mars Orbiter Mission and is now available on YouTube (trailer). The video helped me relive September 24, 2014 again. On that day, I watched Mars Orbit Insertion from Mumbai while my fiance (and now my wife) watched with her sister in Kerala. On that day, she […]
It’s September. I’ve moved to Lonar and moved my family here for work. It has a hypervelocity crater and the work doesn’t give me too much time to spend there.
Show Notes: Peter Selding’s confirmation of the Last Minute Return of GSAT 11. My blog post on Revati.
Revati is Zeta Piscium. It is the “star” under which my daughter was born. So, I seem to have a mental filter that catches that phrase in Twitter’s flowing timeline.

എല്ലാപേരുകം എന്റെ ഹൃദയംനിറഞ്ഞ ഓണം ആശംസകൾ. മലയാളത്തില എഴുതുന്ന ശ്രമം തുടങ്ങി രണ്ടു വര്ഷം അഴി. ഓണം ആയതിനാൽ ഇ ശ്രമം പുതുക്കാന് നിശ്ചയിച്ചു. ഇത് എന്റെ അദ്യതെ പോസ്റ്റ്.
(This is not meant as a review of the movie. There may be spoilers.) Vikram-Vedha found mention in today’s Indian Express which reminded me that I also meant to write about it here.
