Astronaut Kalpana Chwala: The Kohinoor of India

04 Feb 17

Born on March 17, 1962, Kalpana Chawla is an idol for many. Today we know her as an Indo- American astronaut and the woman from India who went on a space mission.

Her journey of becoming an astronaut started at the early age, where other children of her age dressed their Barbie dolls, Kalpana liked to draw pictures of airplanes. After completing her schooling from Tagore Baal Niketan Senior Secondary School, Karnal, Haryana, she did her B.Tech in Aeronautical Engineering from Punjab Engineering College at Chandigarh, India in 1982. She obtained a Master’s degree in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Texas at Arlington 1984. She was a creative astronaut who always liked poetry, dancing, cycling and running.

It was February 1, 2013 when India got the news of Kalpana’s death due to an accident. Chawla lost her life in the space shuttle Columbia disaster. Today, Chawla lives in our hearts and we remember her as a courageous woman of India.
