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. ...

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...

    =========================================

    - I have worked with telemetry and telecommunication data regarding the analysis of SWIFT and Agile satellites accesses for the Malindi Station (Broglio Space centre).  I have a good understanding of space launch, satellite mission planning, satellite State of Health (SOH) data recording, real-time ground system testing, and engineering support.

    - I am able to conduct quantitative and qualitative research and statistical analysis of data related to the support of EO systems,  to analyze the concepts for placing satellites  in space and to assess scientific principles and calculate problems related to space science and exploration

    -For 2 years I have led various projects and implementations in the ICT sector. I have a wide knowledge of W3C and OGC standards, Java, JSP, XML, HTML, Web Services, applets and related tools.

    - I’m an ArcGIS specialist and developer, so I’m able to deliver dynamic maps and data via the Web. I have experience and familiarity with Grid technology and middleware components (grid-ftp, GIS, MDS, Replica catalogue, CA, etc) and concepts.

    - I have a good knowledge of GPS and DGPS technology developments and applications. I’m able to obtain cm level accuracy ( survey, geodesy, reference datums, conversion Carrier phase measurements, cycle integer ambiguity interferometry; differencing of measurements accuracy, potential and limitations ).

    Artistic skills and competences

    I love sports. During my time off, I love going to the park and run. I love all kind of activities that make me feel good (I did karate for 15 years). If I can’t go running, I like reading and my favourite readings are classic Italian, Latin and Greek literature. I am a curious person and I am fascinated by “discoveries”…not only the scientific ones! I am a good tourist able to explore new landscapes after a long walk.

     

     

    Other skills and competences

    I have a great passion for science. My passion for outer space was born when I first saw the images of the landing on the Moon of the Apollo 11.During high school days my “love” for science was strengthened as I studied and read a lot about the approach of the great minds of our past to the scientific discovery. Archimede, Pitagora and especially Plinio, writer, man of science, naturalist and historian, was my model. I always wondered what those men would feel looking up at the vault of the starry heaven. So I felt close and made mine the phrase of Seneca. "per aspera sic itur ad astra". That is why my knowledge and my interests in the scientific world have broadened out on a wide range of subjects apparently not related: geophysics, astronomy and so on. This last one is my great passion. To tell the truth my first old interest was the cosmology and from this I’m arrived to “watch” the sky with my telescope. In my personal library I have several titles directly related with cosmology and with astrophysics.
