Students of Catholic school, St Xavier's have brought laurels to the country after winning international competitions on space science organised by American space agency NASA.
Shubham Gupta, a class X student of the school, bagged the second position in grade IX-X for his project 'Avatar', a human settlement on space.
The competitions were organised by NASA for school and college students.
April 12 is being observed as the first International Day on Human Space Flight. It marks the 50th anniversary of the date Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first human to see planet Earth from space.
In the competition, six students from four different schools bagged third position in the 'Space Settlement' in category XI-XII.
The team members include Kanak Pareek and Kumar Aditya from Maheshwari Public, Tanushree Charan and Chavvi Gupta from Sawai Man Singh School, Gunjan Soni from St Xavier's School and Sahil Agarwal from Neerja Modi School.
In this project, they harnessed the strength and efficiency of bacteria, applied the geometrical concepts of symmetries and focused on solar energy for harnessing energy in space.
The settlement will support exclusive zones of activities like agriculture, industries and recreational activities.
The project took hours of calculation and imagination.
NASA had invited entries from schools across the world to select the best project on creating alternative space settlement to earth.
