About Me


Greetings Earthlings ! 🙂

I am Smiti from India. I truly believe in living up to my name which literally translates to ‘smile’. I am from Delhi and am presently living in Bangalore with my husband. I’m an aerospace engineer by profession and am working as scientist/engineer at Indian Space Research Organization. But before I leave the sphere of influence of Earth and wander off into limitless skies, I would like to traverse the home planet, far and wide ! 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 ?
