Two Russian cosmonauts from the International Space Station (ISS) have greeted students of the Atomic Energy Central School at Kudankulam in Tamil Nadu after receiving a letter from them, according to a statement from Russian state-run nuclear energy corporation Rosatom.
The company is the equipment supplier and technical consultant for the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project being operated by the Nuclear Power Corp.
"Out of more than 12,000 letters, the students' letter was chosen to be replied and the astronauts sent greetings," the statement said.
Artemyev said in the video that they had received a lot of letters and congratulations on the International Cosmonauts Day.
"One of those letters was unique. It was full of warmth and love and we could not resist ourselves from replying. The letter is written by school children from a village called Kundakulam in South India who study at Atomic Central School," he said.
