At a recent meeting of the Nassau County Legislature, Legislator Dennis Dunne, Sr. joined with Presiding Officer Norma L. Gonsalves to honor Ganesh Ravichandran, a senior at W.T. Clarke High School in East Meadow, in recognition of his being named a 2014 Intel Science Talent Search Semi-Finalist.

For his project, Ganesh traveled to the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena to use images captured by high-tech cameras to build a catalog of stars in the “Milky Way.” In total, Ganesh spent 6 months creating a computer program that allowed him to sift through more than 1,100 images in order to ferret out discrepancies in other scientists’ data and give a clearer understanding of the universe.

“The amount of time and work spent to see his project through is an incredible testament to Ganesh’s dedication and drive,” said Presiding Officer Gonsalves. “Thanks to his project, future generations will have a better understanding of the universe and could lead to larger discoveries in the future.”
