About Me


Greetings Earthlings ! 🙂

I am Smiti from India. I truly believe in living up to my name which literally translates to ‘smile’. I’m a space engineer by profession and am presently working at EUMETSAT in Darmstadt, Germany. I enjoy cooking and love listening to music. My biggest stress-buster is travel and I love planning trips and exploring new places.

I’m working on the challenging field of spacecraft attitude dynamics and control and thought that “the drifting satellite” would be an apt name for my blog to pen down my wandering thoughts as well as my travel tales. To read more on this check out my first ever blog post: What’s with the name ?
