Students dream of houses in the sky

Abstract:
One city resident and his colleague from Ganganagar, both second-year civil engineering students from Punjab Engineering College (PEC), will soon have a hand in putting people on cloud nine — literally. Ankur Bajoria, the local lad, and Nitin Arora have got an invitation to be part of a National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)-sponsored project for developing a design for a colony in space.

The structures have also to be built using carbon nano tubes that are much lighter than aluminium and more than 100 times stronger than steel, Nitin says.
