A team of 12 students from Amity International School, Noida, has won the prestigious 20th Annual International Space Settlement Design Competition (ISSDC), 2015, held at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida, USA.

The team comprised 12 students – Dhruv Khanna, Aabhas Vaish, Aman Agarwal, Anuj Harisinghani, Rishab Srivastava, Chittaranjan Prasad, Suchit Jain, Rahul Rajput, Tanay Asija, Anant Chaturvedi, Grishma Purewal and Mudit Gupta.

The ISSD competition involves high school students designing a model of a city in space that can house over 10,000 people. The Amity team designed two main settlements and four outlying settlements to accommodate a population of 24,000 as well as a transient of 3,000 more on Mars using a transparent material, ‘Aluminium Oxinitride’. Their work involved various aspects such as Automation Engineering, Operations Engineering, Human Engineering, Marketing and Finance, schedule and cost.

Four companies with 50 participants each from all over the world competed in the final round of the ISSDC. The Amity team was a part of a company called ‘Vulture Aviation’, and was clubbed with teams from Latin America, North America and the UK. It was the only team from Asia to make it to the finals.

The Logical Indian community lauds the youngsters for their amazing feat. We hope many more young and bright minds of India will soon steer the nation’s space programme to its zenith.
