GSoC 2021 Query

Hello! I am Sidharth from India and I am an engineering undergraduate majoring in Chemical Engineering. I am also an avid coder and took part in building platforms for fests and simulation tools for my labs.
I just saw librecube in GSOC orgs which was released a few hours back. I wanted to contribute to a field in Science and Medicine and this organization caught my eye.
All the project ideas were really cool!
I went throught the projects list for GSoC 2021.
And I want to know more about Project 1 and 6 in the above link.
I have a fair knowledge in thermal engineering but not for space environments. Also CCSDS Space Packet standard is quite new to me.
It would be of great help if anyone could provide me with resources for the same.
Thanks in advance!
