Propulsion Laboratory, a subsidiary agency of the US space agency NASA, gives science students from all over the world the opportunity for new research in the field of astronomy. Propulsion Laboratory releases several photographs of the space every 6 months and challenges to identify the meteorite that appears in it. Based on these pictures, students have to gather information about the size of meteorite, its texture and its location in the space.For this, the students are given 6 months time. At the same time, Nirav completed this task in just two months. Meteors are harmful to Earth. Due to this, NASA continues to research these. At the same time, students who are successful in this research are given a certificate from NASA.
Chose a meteor named PPGUpj
– Closely analyzed over 200 photographs provided by NASA.
– Unknown meteorites are given symbolic names. Nirav chose a meteorite named PPGUpj from these photographs for his research.Analyzed it with the help of digital image processing software for two consecutive months and prepared a chart of it.

From the young age of 7 years, the family’s responsibilities were handled. Nirav has proved from his research that facilities and resources do not matter if there is dedication and talent.
