A 17-year-old student from Co Dublin will have an asteroid named in his honour after winning an international science and engineering award.

Adam Kelly, a student at Skerries Community College, was granted the distinction after his success at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) in Phoenix, Arizona.

It is in recognition of his work in developing a series of digital tools for use in quantum computing, which is predicted to drive the supercomputers of the future.

Mr Kelly over the past year has won two of the top competitions for young scientists in Ireland. He secured his place at the Intel competition when he won the Science Foundation Ireland Intel ISEF award at SciFest National Final last November.
