My wife and in-laws go to a monthly “pooja”. It is a Hindu prayer meeting and a great time to reconnect with friends. It is held at a different person’s house each month. Last year, I had gone. It was a great opportunity to meet people and maybe get on of them to participate in my project.
Nataraja and I used to work together at HP. I was happy that he was willing to sit down and talk about it.
He is one of the few people that had heard about us returning to the moon. He is interested in space exploration and says that one of the ways he stays informed is through the information I have been posting on Facebook.
His two children were interested in space exploration in elementary school. But like most children those interests fade to be replaced by other interests.
