Indian-Origin Engineer Amit Kshatriya to Head NASA’s Moon to Mars Programme

Amit Kshatriya, a decorated Indian-American software and robotics mastermind was appointed as the first head of NASA’s recently-established Moon to Mars Programme that will help the agency insure a long-term lunar presence demanded to prepare for humanity’s coming giant vault to the Red Planet.

Kshatriya will serve as NASA’s first head of the office, with immediate effect, the agency blazoned on Thursday.

The new office aims to carry out the agency’s mortal disquisition conditioning on the Moon and Mars for the benefit of humanity, a NASA press release said.

“The golden age of disquisition is passing right now, and this new office will help insure that NASA successfully establishes a long-term lunar presence demanded to prepare for humanity’s coming giant vault to the Red Planet,” said NASA Administrator Bill Nelson.

“The Moon to Mars Programme Office will help prepare NASA to carry out our bold operations to the Moon and land the first humans on Mars,” Nelson explained.

The new office resides within the Exploration Systems Development Mission Directorate, reporting to its Associate director Jim Free, it said.

As directed by the 2022 NASA Authorisation Act, the Moon to Mars Programme Office focuses on tackle development, charge integration and threat operation functions for programmes critical to the agency’s disquisition approach that uses Artemis operations at the Moon to open a new period of scientific discovery and prepare for mortal operations to Mars, according to the press release.

This includes the Space Launch System rocket, Orion spacecraft, supporting ground systems, mortal wharf systems, spacesuits, Gateway, and more affiliated to deep space disquisition.

The new office will also lead planning and analysis for long-lead developments to support mortal Mars operations
