National Students Space Challenge (NSSC), a national-level engineering competition organized at IIT Kharagpur each year. The competition is certified by Indian Space Research Organisation and receives participation in large numbers from engineering students from all over the country. The event is the sole technical fest of its genre encouraging space enthusiasts to showcase their mettle in various fields of Astronomy and Astrophysics. It was conceived by Space Technology Students’ Society, a group of IITians from various disciplines working towards a common goal of motivating space interest among the student community of India, emerging as one of the major forefronts in the field of space technology.
