Saurabh Singh

17 year old Saurabh Singh from Narhai in Uttar Pradesh has topped NASA's International Scientist Discovery exam. Amazingly Saurabh had never heard of NASA ISD exam till he began preparing for his IIT entrance exams. Indian President.APJ Abdul Kalam, finished seventh in the test in 1960 and Kalpana Chawla, had stood 21st in 1988.

Congrats Saurabh Singh. We are proud of you.

  7. Please note that NASA has received a large amount of e-mail about this story and the supposed ISD exam. As far as this NASA center can determine, there is no ISD exam. The only reports of this so-called exam are on Web sites hosted within India. The articles do not site any NASA personnel, nor do they site any NASA news site with additional information. NASA Press Releases are listed at: http://search.nasa.gov/audience/formedia/archives/index.html

  8. This appears to have been a "Ballia" joke -- if you are not familiar with the sociology of UP, know that people from Ballia are reputed to be simpletons, believing in everything that is told to them, and are hence the butt of jokes, simislar to Polish jokes
