Camille Chiu, a student at College Station High School, won an honorable mention from NASA at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Phoenix. Camille, using a radio telescope and satellite data, did some calculations on the Milky Way galaxy rotation. Her findings support a previous theory that there may not be as much dark matter in the Milky Way as scientists previously predicted.

The event is the largest pre-collegiate science fair, with more than 1,800 students from 80 countries competing. Camille, along with two other Central Texas students, advanced to the competition after winning Best of Fair at the Austin Energy Regional Science Festival in February.
