The Discussion for the final day of event covers space engineering & Artificial Intelligence for Space science, which was taken by Philip Obhenimen and Eloghosa Ikponmwoba and they highlighted the working principles and challenges of rocket engineering and how Artificial intelligence is crucial for unmanned spacecraft.
However, at the end of the program participants where engaged to solve the International Astronomy & Astrophysics problems which is global competition for solving astrophysics problems. They were 54 registered participants, out of which 44 showed up for the events with only 39 of the participant who submitted their solution and received a certificate for their participation received a certificate and 4 of the participant could scale to the pre-final and final round.
The event ended with a great number of people having knowledge of Space exploration & Artificial Intelligence with a certificate to back it up, and the next space summit is promised to be Practical and Greater.
