There were 996 entries received from 23 countries competing in the NASA Ames Space Settlement Contest but the work submitted by Thidas Loku Bogahawattage, a grade 6 student at Taylor Park Elementary rose quickly to the top. He shared second place with a student from Romania for his project called “Prarthana.” His impressive finish means he’ll be giving a presentation at the 35th Annual International Space Development Conference to be held later this month in Puerto Rico.
