Established in 2014, we are the first Astronautical Society of University of Petroleum and Energy Studies (UPES). Founded by Dr. Ugur Guven and mentored by Asst. Prof. Zozimus D. Labana, we aim to enable students to become early contributors to the Astronautical World through active participation in the exchange of technical knowledge and talent to enhance their technical and professional competence simultaneously. After starting this journey as a small idea in 2014, we are now the first and only Astronautical Society of UPES Dehradun that operates at night by conducting observational nights. We organize events with technical experts in collaboration with various global Astronautical and Astronomical Societies and create exposure for our members and University at an International Level.
