NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope and the W.M. Keck Observatory in Hawaii have made independent confirmations of an exoplanet orbiting far from its central star. The planet was discovered through a technique called gravitational microlensing. This finding opens a new piece of discovery space in the extrasolar planet hunt: to uncover planets as far from their central stars as Jupiter and Saturn are from our sun. The Hubble and Keck Observatory results will appear in two papers in the Jul...

Using NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, astronomers have confirmed the discovery of the nearest rocky planet outside our solar system, larger than Earth and a potential gold mine of science data. Dubbed HD 219134b, this exoplanet, which orbits too close to its star to sustain life, is a mere 21 light-years away. While the planet itself can't be seen directly, even by telescopes, the star it orbits is visible to the naked eye in dark skies in the Cassiopeia constellation, near the North Star. ...

Lockheed Martin (NYSE:LMT) engineers have successfully completed testing of design changes made to the NASA Orion spacecraft's fairing separation system. These changes resulted from data collected during Orion's first test flight on Dec. 5, 2014. A finished Orion spacecraft has three fairings, or panels, that protect the service module radiators and solar arrays from heat, wind and acoustics during ascent into space. For the purposes of collecting data during these tests, only one fairing was...

The chemical element lithium has been found for the first time in material ejected by a nova. Observations of Nova Centauri 2013 made using telescopes at ESO's La Silla Observatory, and near Santiago in Chile, help to explain the mystery of why many young stars seem to have more of this chemical element than expected. This new finding fills in a long-missing piece in the puzzle representing our galaxy's chemical evolution, and is a big step forward for astronomers trying to understand the amount...

A fast-moving pulsar appears to have punched a hole in a disk of gas around its companion star and launched a fragment of the disk outward at a speed of about 40 million miles per hour. NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory is tracking this cosmic clump, which appears to be picking up speed as it moves out. The double star system PSR B1259-63/LS 2883 – or B1259 for short – contains a star about 30 times as massive as the Sun and a pulsar, an ultra-dense neutron star left behi...

Flowing ice and a surprising extended haze are among the newest discoveries from NASA's New Horizons mission, which reveal distant Pluto to be an icy world of wonders. "We knew that a mission to Pluto would bring some surprises, and now -- 10 days after closest approach -- we can say that our expectation has been more than surpassed," said John Grunsfeld, NASA's associate administrator for the Science Mission Directorate. "With flowing ices, exotic surface chemistry, mountain ranges, and vast...

    Oct 2008-April 2009
    Graduate student
    Group Design Project:Mission to Titan’
    The purpose of this project was to design mission to the Saturnian moon Titan which is of great interest to the planetary science community, due to its atmosphere, presence of organics, and the occurrence of many analogs of terrestrial processes and phenomena. This mission suggested the use of an orbiter, lander, lake vehicle and airship to investigate the different science aspects mentioned earlier. I was responsible for structural analysis of both lander and lake vehicle. Working within a team of eighteen, the project involved regular meetings every week, detailed planning of the work process, project monitoring and reporting.
     
    Military Technical Institute, Belgrade, Serbia   
    Sept 2004-Sept 2008
    Aeronautical Engineer, Aeronautical Division
    ·         Performed static and dynamic analyses, free vibration response, modal analysis and transient analysis of the aircraft structures and other mechanical systems.
    ·         Analyzed models after extracting modal parameters of a system (resonance frequencies, damping, and modal shapes) from real measurements.
    ·         Visualized the dynamic behavior of the tested structure.
    ·         Estimated the structure behavior depending on modifications of the structure or of the solicitations.
    ·         Performed simulation, organized and scheduled experimental test for data acquisition, processed the data and analyzed the results acquired, prepared the test report, wrote the paper for publication and presentation at conferences.
    ·         Benchmarking of finite-element analysis and experimental results.
     
    Project participation included:
    Tandem two-seat primary/basic trainer LASTA-95(first flight February 2009)
    ·         Responsible for the specification and control of aileron, tailplane, elevator and rudder torsional stiffness tests. Conducted FE meshing and analysis using MSC Patran/Nastran to model the load cases for static testing. Attended and monitored the tests to ensure that the test conformed to requirements. Issued official reports and specifications.
    ·         Used IDEAS to design 1:5 scale wind tunnel model of the trainer. Conducted its FE analysis and simulation. Performed modal analysis and compare it with finite element analysis. Issued the official report.
    ·         Used hand calculations to find natural frequencies of control system. Performed its FEA and simulation using IDEAS. Performed stick force analysis for steady state straight line flight. The effect of trim tabs was also considered.
    Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) TD
    ·         Investigated vibrations on UAV and its effect on the various components of the UAV. Modal analysis and frequency response analysis has been carried out for some of the components to find natural frequencies and displacements for the given excitation levels. During take-off, engine imparted high loads into sensitive UAV components. Each of these components and subsystems had to be designed to withstand these vibrations. To make components strong enough to withstand these loads required additional weight, which would increased costs and reduced overall performance. A better option was to reduce the magnitude of the vibrations into the sensitive components by carefully designing vibration isolation system for which I was responsible.
    Assault transport helicopter
    ·         Conducted vibration measurements, time and frequency response analysis during take-off and some maneuvers. Purpose of this examination was vibration monitoring and evaluation of pilot exposure to whole body vibration.
    Civil trade ship “Deligrad”
    ·         Performed measurement on trade ship of length 95m, width 11m, height 3.2m and carrying capacity of 1850t with two main and one auxiliary engines (Caterpillar) and one in bow. The responsibilities included vibration measurements with B&K Pulse 3560D Multichannel Portable Data Acquisition Unit in engine room, saloon, cabin and pilot house by given sailing regulations. Processed vibration signals instantly in frequency and octave analyzer. Compared these vibrations with allowable ones defined with ISO 6954, ISO 2631 and ISO 10816-3 standards.
    Military ship
    ·         Performed vibration measurement and analysis same as with civil trade ship. Issued official report and specifications.
