Aryan Mishra

Meet Aryan Mishra, an 18 year old astronomer whose curiosity in space led him to discover an unknown asteroid in a nationwide asteroid search campaign. Aryan, who idolizes Rakesh Sharma, took this as an opportunity to reach out to thousands of kids across various schools in India, US, Canada and Israel, sharing his passion and inspiring people. Son of a high school educated newspaper seller, Aryan’s humble beginnings did not stop him from pursuing his dreams. On days there would be something important happening in the sky, you would find Aryan setting up his telescope (that he bought with his pocket money when he was 13) in his street for the kids in the neighbourhood, telling them about eclipses, the Milky Way, the stars and the beautiful queen in the sky called Andromeda.
