Dr Hasan Shaheed, a Bangladeshi renowned scientist led a team which invents the first solar helicopter of the world and engaged with his next big thing, controllable capsule robot project

This is Dr. Hasan Shaheed (Bengali: ড.হাসান শহীদ), a Bangladeshi renowned scientist led a team along with Prof. Ante Munjiza which invents the first solar helicopter of the world and engaged with his next big thing, controllable capsule robot project.

The team was consisted of 7 students of Queen Marry university of England. Dr Hasan Shaheed is the Assistant professors of Queen marry university’s school of engineering. Another Bangladeshi, Sakir ahmed, was also in the team.

An Iraqi student, Ali abdai, was started research on solar helicopter in 2011 under Mr. Hasan. The model of the solar helicopter can fly without any problem, the speed too can be controlled; but this helicopter can not run with solar energy, required battery to run.  The team started working on this joined to overcome this problem.  The project of solar helicopter extended to continue in masters level. Another 6 students joined with him in the team and Professor Antonio Munjia also joined with them as assistance coordinator. The focus of the team was to run the helicopter with solar energy with three goals as light, durable, and energy-efficient. The solar run helicopter, named as solar-copter came into existence with a wight of just 1 kilogram. A solar simulator with the combination of halogen lamp was made to determine the flying capacity of the solar-copter. The four wings of the copter started moving after the operation was started with remote control. The solar copter fled up giving surprise to everyone. This is the story of the invention of the first solar copter in the world.

The outer look of solar copter is not our familiar appearance of helicopter. The familiar helicopter has two propeller-one of the top and one the tail or two in the top. But the solar-copter has 4 propellers in 4 corners in equal distance from the center which is known as quad rotor or quad-copter for getting the most solar energy from sun. The news of the solar copter circulated in technology based famous magazine of the world like Gijmag, design book. The world famous TV channel, Discovery, was telecast a report on solar-copter in their daily planet show.

The team members of the solar copter had worked on different aspects-Sakir Ahmed researched on the present condition of solar energy and the potentiality of solar cell to be used for solar copter. Kazimierz Wojewoda researched on size and structure. Jibs Ahmed researched on the materials to be used for solar copter; Aly Abidali worked on the creation of solar panel and other challenges.

Dr Hasan Shaheed was born at Hanua village of Bakerganj sub-district of Barisal district. He had completed secondary and higher secondary school certificate certification from Barisal Cadet College. Later he had completed his graduation as first class first from Dhaka University in applied physics from Electronic and communication engineering department. He had gone to Sheffield university of UK with commonwealth scholarship in September 1997. He researched on the controlling of the hand of robot. Later he completed his PHD degree from Sheffield university of United Kingdom (UK). He had joined in the Queen marry university as professor after completing his PHD in 2001. He is now researching in robotics and control in school of engineering and material science department as a senior professor. He was included in the list of top 100 most influential Bangladeshi (British Bangladeshi power and inspiration) residing in UK. His wife, Ms Mohsina Mahmuda Ferdous, is researching in genetic engineering in PHD level in Bronel University. The couple has as 5 years old daughter Nuyaima.

A Bangladeshi, Mahia abedin rakhi scored 100 out of 100 in all subjects of the SSC and HSC equivalent examination in Italy

This is not at all surprising or tale that a Bangladeshi girl became the role model for Italian with her own merit-obviously with her extra-ordinary merit. All the Italian parents expect to see their child growing as successful as Rakhi became.

Mahia abedin rakhi is the daughter of Joinal abedin and Masuda abedin shanta. She is the eldest among the 3 son-daughter of her parent. She was born at Satbaria village of Halimpur union of Bajitpur upazila of Kishoreganj district of Bangladesh. She came to Italy at the age of just nine and started her studies from 4th standard. She was attended in HSC equivalent examination from Chekkato De Montekkio college of Visenca province by 2012 at the age of nineteen.
She scored 100 out of 100 in all subjects of the examination, stood first among all in Italy and made a national record in Italy. Jorge Napolitano, the president of Italy awarded with 10 extra marks and special prize by inviting her in the president palace. This is redundant to say for a girl like Rakhi that she scored 100 out of 100 in all subjects of the SSC equivalent examination in 2010 too.
