Shambhu Singh, an e-rickshaw driver in Patna, and Suryakant, a Hindi teacher at a government school in Aurangabad, never imagined their kid’s name would be given to an asteroid that orbits the Earth. Their son Shreyas has been approached by the NASA team about this finding. The asteroids will now be known as SBC 2331 and SBC 3117.

Harsh and Shreyas B Chandra, both 16, found ten asteroids under the IASC (International Astronomical Search Collaboration). The Rickshaw Driver’s son examined four NASA images, & found the massive stones.

He participated in a research programme thrown out open to the world and found something no one knew existed. The Rickshaw Driver’s son stated that he has a team for this endeavour, which comprises Harsh Alok and Ojas Lutereja. The team members identified seven asteroids, according to the brilliant kid. According to Shreyas, NASA runs such a programme for space enthusiasts, which the team decided to participate in.
