The requisite ingredients for the recipe of success are – one dream, one man and a lot of courage. It takes only a decision to try and traverse the path and the story builds itself. Sunny Kabrawala incepted STAR as a startup on research in Space technology,

Initially, STAR constituted a team of only 4 students, while it got invitation from 20+ schools, colleges and institutions to conduct seminars on space exploration and by the end of 2016, it had addressed 6000+ students in Gujarat. In a span of a year, STAR grew from a team of 4 members to a team of 15 members and organized numerous sky gazing and rocket launch events in Surat.
