Pradiip was one of the 30 finalists of the Kruger Cowne Rising Star Programme, seeking to send a young leader to space. He almost became the first Venezuelan astronaut and one of the youngest persons to travel to space. Over 60 newspapers, radio stations, and TV channels either contacted Pradiip for an interview or published an article about his Rising Star selection
