Four school students from Rourkela have bagged the second prize in the prestigious 'Space Settlement Design Contest' conducted by National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) AMES Research Centre in USA in March 2006.
The NASA space centre has invited Ullahs, Amitav, Asim and Soumya of the Ispat English Medium School, Rourkela, but the budding scientists are finding it hard to realise their dreams because of lack of sponsorship.[via]
While the government is busy trying to distribute jobs and admissions based on Caste, Class and Creed, these meritorious students are finding it hard to make to it their Dream Destinations because of lack of funding. This is not new. I am writing this post hoping someone might listen. They need at least Rupees five lakhs to go visit Nasa.
Keep blogging about it. I will try to update link roll.
My Sensible Adsense might just even work, if 1000 blogs with average 200 hits a day were to put up adsense units from the same account, we might be able to raise $10000 in a month. Just a thought. Are there a 1000 willing Bloggers out there?...
