Shah Mir Aizaz, a Pakistani student from Grade 10 has won the second position in 2015 NASA Ames Space Settlement Design Contest.

Every year, individuals, small teams of two to five, and large teams of six or more are invited from all over the world to submit space settlement designs to NASA Ames for judgement. This year there were 994 submissions from 3,007 students. Entries came from 21 nations worldwide and 14 different states from USA.
 
Shah Mir Aizaz registered in his individual capacity and won 2nd place for his report titled “Beyond Infinity – Eros Outer Atmosphere Settlement.”. His work was judged by aerospace professionals, and was thoroughly examined for its ideas in making a space city work. He had to figure out answers for issues such as air supply, agriculture, infrastructure and more in an environment that theoretically does not support human life.

Shah Mir, we are really proud of you. May you bring further glories to Pakistan, Ameen.
