Dr P Veeramuthuvel is the project director of ISRO’s Chandrayaan-3, an Indian lunar mission.
Veeramuthuvel is inspired by the 'inner engineering' concept popularized by Isha Foundation’s Sadhguru, and sought his blessings before beginning the mission.
He has worked on remote sensing satellites, Mars orbiter mission, Chandrayaan-2, and Chandrayaan-3 and earned a PhD from IIT Madras in 2011.
According to Veeramuthuvel, space exploration's understanding is limited compared to the profound insights offered by inner exploration.
In 2009, Veeramuthuvel undertook Sadhguru’s 'inner engineering' course, resulting in significant personal changes and enhancing his perspective on outer space exploration.
