Lekha too hopes to reach Mars

Dr. Lekha Menon Margassery of Palakkad is one among the 3 Keralites making it to the next stage of the proposed trip to Mars. She counters the skepticism surrounding this once in lifetime opportunity by pointing out moon-landing and cloning have come true. This PhD in Marine biotechnology from UCC, Ireland hopes to use bacteria endemic to the red planet to discover new drugs, which will benefit mankind. Her husband and parents have expressed mixed emotions on her quest. Appearing on ‘Morning Show,’ Lekha explains the various stages involved in planetary mission, on the movie ‘Gravity,’ planting Indian flag in Mars, and on the lighter side of starting a biriyani-n-tea shop there.
