Talking to a leading news channel of Pakistan, Dr Yarjan said that “we are basically working on devices which are used in space. Our main focus right now is to make devices that can work without any energy or electric connections and these devices will provide colling the spacecraft while they are in space.”

Furthermore, he said that this technology can be launched in Pakistan too. Dr. Yarjan is ready to share his life long experience and experiments with Pakistani space scientists and the department Pakistan Space and Upper Atmosphere Research Commission (SUPARCO).

Dr. Yarjan, along with his department is working on space-bound satellites that can system without any energy and electricity. During 3 years, the young Dr has several times performed experiments in zero gravity.

We wish Dr. Yarjan best of luck for his future endeavors and pray that he someday could work on something that benefits Pakistan too.
