Milestones

Henrico resident Saumil Bandyopadhyay, a junior at Maggie Walker Governor’s School, recently won first place in the research competition at the International Space Olympics held in Koroley, Russia. His project, “Eye in Space: Dual Detection of Infrared and Ultraviolet Emissions with a Novel Nanowire Multispectral Photo-detector,” will be published in a science journal. During the 10-day competition, Bandyopadhyay and over 200 other competitors from eight different countries presented their projects in front of leading Russian scientists. Competitors also took physics, math, and writing tests, and Bandyopadhyay came in eighth place overall in the competition. In addition to the competition, he had the chance to meet Russian cosmonauts and space industry specialists, visit Mission Control Center and several space museums, and visit Korolev schools to meet local students and learn about their culture and lifestyle.
