Indian students bag 2nd prize in NASA’s competition

Wow! I believe that’s the reaction of every Indian when they hear this news.

Two Indian students have won the second place for their Design of Transport Aircraft for the Future sponsored by American space agency NASA. There is an immense talent hidden in every individual and the only requirement to explore is the self confidence.

Fourteen teams and two individual students submitted their designs in the annual competition sponsored by NASA’s Fundamental Aeronautics Program, part of the agency’s Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate. The highest scoring graduate team was from Georgia Tech in Atlanta, USA. The contest asked students to create a future subsonic transport aircraft that could carry up to 50,000 pounds, operate on runways between 1,500 and 3,000 feet long, and cruise at speeds between 595 and 625 mph.

The competition also stressed that concept planes should use alternative fuels and be quieter and more environmentally friendly than today’s commercial fleet. The judges graded the designs on criteria including creativity and imagination, feasibility and cost analysis, and comprehensive discussion of design concept.

Am I sounding more techy ?

This spectacular achievement will be an encouragement for more youngsters to explore their talents to the competitive world.

Great Job!

    Good afternoon. Whatever you do, do it to the purpose; do it thoroughly, not superficially. Go to the bottom of things. Any thing half done, or half known, is in my mind, neither done nor known at all.

    Thank you very much :-(. Razi from Dominican.

House in Paradise!

Narrated AbuUmamah: The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: I guarantee a house in the surroundings of Paradise for a man who avoids quarrelling even if he were in the right, a house in the middle of Paradise for a man who avoids lying even if he were joking, and a house in the upper part of Paradise for a man who made his character good.(Sunan Abu Dawood,Book 41, Number 4782)
