This morning, Misra is giving a special talk: the Paolo Santini Memorial Lecture. It is an annual honor bestowed upon significant figures in the space world, particularly in the materials and structures area. He is introduced as the father of space robotics in Canada. When he arrives on the stage, he humbly corrects the session chair that in fact Peter Hughes is the father of space robotics in Canada.
During the introduction, the session chair also mentions that Professor Misra has authored and co-authored more than 230 papers (journals and international conferences). I conclude that I`ll never be that prolific, but then quickly look at it in another way: I consider myself fortunate to have been involved with a handful of those papers.
