Nepali student spots signs of water on Mars

 A Nepali undergraduate geophysics student at the University of Arizona, USA was the first to spot signs of possible flowing water during the warmer months on Mars that the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) announced through a press conference on Thursday.

Lujendra Ojha, 21, of Mhepi, Kathmandu, who studied at Galaxy Public School till eighth grade before moving to Arizona with his geologist father Dr Tank Ojha five years ago, is co-author of a new study in the journal Science which has suggested possible presence of briny water on the Martian surface.

This is great news for all Nepalis and we should be proud of Lujendra.
