Pivoting planets that lean one way and then change orientation within a short geological time period might be surprisingly habitable, according to new modeling by NASA and university scientists affiliated with the NASA Astrobiology Institute. The climate effects generated on these wobbling worlds could prevent them from turning into glacier-covered ice lockers, even if those planets are somewhat far from their stars. And with some water remaining liquid on the surface long-term, such plan...

Ariane Flight VA219 Cargo loading has commenced in French Guiana for the fifth – and final – European Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV), which is being prepared for a 2014 launch from the Spaceport on Arianespace’s next Ariane 5 servicing mission to the International Space Station. The ATV – designated Georges Lemaître after the Belgian physicist and father of the Big Bang theory – is to resupply the crewed space station facility, perform maneuvers ...

Ariane Flight VA218 Payload preparations for Arianespace’s next Ariane 5 mission are gearing up following this week’s delivery of MEASAT-3b – one of two satellite passengers for launch on the heavy-lift flight – to French Guiana. This spacecraft was transported by a chartered An-124 cargo jetliner that landed at Félix Eboué International Airport near the capital city of Cayenne, and was unloaded for its transfer by road to the Spaceport. In p...

NASA Kennedy Space Center's historic Launch Complex 39A, the site from which numerous Apollo and space shuttle missions began, is beginning a new mission as a commercial launch site. NASA signed a property agreement with Space Exploration Technologies Corporation (SpaceX) of Hawthorne, Calif., on Monday for use and occupancy of the seaside complex along Florida's central east coast. It will serve as a platform for SpaceX to support their commercial launch activities. "It's exciting that this sto...

For NASA's long-duration human spaceflight missions, travelers will need to recycle as much breathable oxygen in their spacecraft environments, as possible. To turn that need into a reality, NASA is seeking proposals for lightweight, safe, efficient and reliable systems for regenerating oxygen on future human exploration missions. The first of two phases of this new NASA solicitation will consist of a detailed design, development, fabrication, and testing of an advanced oxygen recovery technolog...

    Education

    Sep 08 – Oct 11:         PhD in Electrical and Electronics Engineering

                                        (High Frequency Electronics)

    (Submitted thesis in September 2011 and VIVA is scheduled on 4thNovember)

    Queens University Belfast, Belfast, UK.       

     

    Thesis Title: Investigate the Effect of Phase Conjugation and Time Reversal Techniques in Free Space and a Reverberant Environment at 2.4 GHz.

     

    The objective of the thesis is to demonstrate numerically (CST-MWS) and experimentally the temporal compression, spatial resolution and beam steering features of both time reversal and phase conjugation techniques in three different environments: free space, a partially reflecting space and a fully reflecting space at microwave frequency (2.4 GHz).

    Work Experience

    Jun 07 – Sep 07:          High Frequency Electronics Research group

    ECIT, Queen’s University Belfast, Belfast, UK       

    A microstrip spiral antenna was designed in ADS by changing the number of turns and the thickness of the substrate and was tested on a Vector Network Analyser in the frequency range of 5 -15 GHz. The radiation pattern was measured in an anechoic chamber and its performance was reanalysed in CST-MWS.
