The infrastructure for public engagement in the space programs in India does not exist at the base level in the education system. After thorough research and analysis of multiple factors and key players, putting it in contrast with the current status of space education in our country to the global efforts, the student wondered if something could be worked around it. Three principles were generated from the research synthesis and analysis, which became the base for the solutions at different levels. The outcome of this project was a design of a low-cost telescope, which can be manufactured out of a flat sheet of material. The system offering and strategy offerings also included curriculum and business strategies for Astrophilia. The project aimed to set the groundwork for future endeavours in the subject, Astrophilia's space for space.
