After the appraisal, Ahmad stated the following:
“When I was a kid, I wanted to be an astronaut — exploring space and whatnot. But I was afraid of heights, so whenever my mother asked, I’d say I’ll settle as a scientist who’d invent things like rockets.
Other than Awais there were more than 12, 000 people who contributed to the code, design, documentation, and codes that made the Mars mission possible.
