The third batch of four satellites in the O3b medium Earth orbit (MEO) constellation, operated by O3b Networks, was successfully launched by Arianespace on December 18 from French Guiana using a Soyuz rocket. The first four satellites have been in orbit since June 2013, while the second batch, launched on July 10, 2014. The constellation of 8 became fully operational in September. The services offered by these eight satellites are highly successful - confirming the validity of the O3b desi...

Laser ranging from Earth to NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) was a milestone in the 50-year history of satellite laser ranging. Launched in 2009 and still orbiting the moon in 2014, LRO was the first spacecraft beyond Earth orbit to be routinely tracked using lasers, which were located at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, and other facilities. “The advantage of laser ranging is its accuracy, and that was apparent even in the earliest e...

The Lockheed Martin [NYSE:LMT]-built Orion spacecraft has just completed its 2,700 mile journey from Naval Base San Diego back to Kennedy Space Center (KSC). The NASA Ground Systems Development and Operations team transported the spacecraft across the country by truck, and the entire trip took eight days. "Despite travelling a bit slower than what we're used to, Orion made pretty good time," said Michael Hawes, Lockheed Martin vice president and Orion program manager. "Most of the team hasn't...

Soyuz Flight VS10 Today's medium-lift Soyuz mission, which deployed the next four satellites for O3b Networks' pioneering connectivity service on a flight performed from the Spaceport in French Guiana, wrapped up an historic 12 months of commercial launch services for Arianespace. The 2-hr., 22-min. flight began with the propulsion of Soyuz' basic three-stage launch vehicle, and was followed by multiple burns of its Fregat upper stage. O3b Networks' four satellites were released in two pha...

NASA and an international team of planetary scientists have found evidence in meteorites on Earth that indicates Mars has a distinct and global reservoir of water or ice near its surface. Though controversy still surrounds the origin, abundance and history of water on Mars, this discovery helps resolve the question of where the "missing Martian water" may have gone. Scientists continue to study the planet's historical record, trying to understand the apparent shift from an early wet and warm ...

    Social skills
    and competences
     
    I like working both individually and within a team, but my inclination to be an outgoing and social person, although very respectful, makes me do my best in contexts involving cooperation among peers and requiring good communication skills, as experienced during the development of the UCISAT-1 Cubesat or the ARCADE project.
    Moreover, I like to organize events and to be part of networks of people committed to compare ideas, create motivation and share opportunities.
     
    Organisational skills
    and competences
     
    Overall, I consider myself a reliable and well organized person. In particular, I believe that all the time I have spent living on my own, in particular abroad, made me considerably improve my organizational skills.
    These skills demonstrated to be fundamental in many academic and professional experiences, such as the project management of the ARCADE project, the tutoring/teaching activity and during the recent feasibility study for an ISS payload.
     
    Technical skills
    and competences
     
    Thanks to several hands-on experiences – like a test campaign of a piezoelectric sensor – and personal hobbies – such as water rocketry – I have gained a good command of typical laboratory instruments, equipment and hand tools.
    In addition, throughout the years I have acquired a good knowledge of several software packages and programming languages, as detailed below.
