Who doesn't want to land up into space or for that matter visit NASA (federal government responsible for the civilian space program) at least once in their lifetime? And to achieve the dreams of landing on space many youngsters of India and even different parts of the world are heading in a direction that is not only going to fulfill what they want to do but looks as if they are going to succeed.
Recently, a student of class 10 has received an honour from NASA for her project on Kirithra Orbiss. Let's take a look at her story in detail and feel proud.
National Aeronautics and Space Administration is United States' branch responsible for space programs, and it is almost every kid's (who wishes to do something in the field of aeronautics and space) dream to get acknowledged.
Recently, a group of students had put the world's smallest satellite into the orbit and a school student who is merely 16 years of age, studies in 10th grade, won a massive honour from NASA and India is so proud of her.
Tapaswini Sharma is the child prodigy who earned this valuable honour for making a school project on Kirithra Orbiss.
NASA's Space Settlement Competition is a competition that received approximately 6000 entries from the world but Tapaswini's project got a special mention and honour from NASA.
Tapaswini's project consisted of a honeycomb-shaped space settlement where humans can live and explore different deep spaces. She won the Honorable Mention Award at the Contest for the year 2017. When Tapaswini spoke about the competition she was heard saying that:
"I came across details about the contest while browsing the NASA website. I am exhilarated to have been selected and plan to participate again in the future."
She is currently a student of class 10 in the Suryadatta National School, Pune. She has now been invited by NASA to attend the 36th Annual International Space Development Conference (ISDC) in St Louis, USA.
Tapaswini's efforts and hard work made the secretary and vice president of Suryadatta group say that students should be given such exposure and opportunities to explore and flourish in their life.
