For those young, wannabe scientists, hitting a ground-based bulls eye was nothing but rocket science. Their skills sharpened by weeks of intense practice, the students from 12 Asia-Pacific countries had their water rocket launchers ready to go. The battle of trajectories was about to heat up. Hosted by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), the contest was about playing with water pressure, mastering the trajectory and releasing the rocket for a perfect landing. The rocket, devised with two pet bottles and cardboard fins, had to cover an 80-metre distance at just the right angle. The line-up at the NAL Kendriya Vidyalaya grounds here had student teams from India and Japan, Indonesia and Cambodia. They had their flair for amateur rocketry fine-tuned, their teachers and observers in attendance. The event, a part of the Asia-Pacific Regional Space Agency Forum (APRSAF-24), was clearly aimed at boosting that appetite for space exploration and rocketry. But mastery over trajectory was ...
