In recognition of my performance at the 2016 Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, MIT Lincoln Laboratory named a newly discovered asteroid in my honor. Welcome to existence, Minor Planet 33662 Tacescu! Read more about it here: https://ssd.jpl.nasa.gov/sbdb.cgi?sstr=33662;old=0;orb=1;cov=0;log=0;cad=0#orb
Placed 2nd place in the category of Engineering Mechanics at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair alongside Project Maverick. In throughout ISEF 2016, I also received:
- Best in Show from the International Council of System Engineers (INCOSE)
- Minor Planet 33662 named in my honor
