New NASA-funded research suggests that Jupiter’s Great Red Spot may be the mysterious heat source behind Jupiter’s surprisingly high upper atmospheric temperatures. Here on Earth, sunlight heats the atmosphere at altitudes well above the surface—for example, at 250 miles above our planet where the International Space Station orbits. Scientists have been stumped as to why temperatures in Jupiter’s upper atmosphere are comparable to those found at Earth, yet Jupiter is...

As the search for life on distant planets heats up, NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) is bringing this hunt closer to home. Launching in 2017-2018, TESS will identify planets orbiting the brightest stars just outside our solar system using what’s known as the transit method. When a planet passes in front of, or transits, its parent star, it blocks some of the star's light. TESS searches for these telltale dips in brightness, which can reveal the planet'...

Astronomers using ESO's Very Large Telescope, along with other telescopes on the ground and in space, have discovered a new type of exotic binary star. In the system AR Scorpii a rapidly spinning white dwarf star powers electrons up to almost the speed of light. These high energy particles release blasts of radiation that lash the companion red dwarf star, and cause the entire system to pulse dramatically every 1.97 minutes with radiation ranging from the ultraviolet to radio. The research will ...

Our RAD750 single-board computer helped the Juno spacecraft travel 2 billion miles to study our biggest planetary neighbor. With a magnetic field 20,000 times stronger than that of Earth, Jupiter presents a hostile environment for any nearby satellite electronics. Despite the challenging conditions, on July 4, 2016, NASA's Juno satellite established orbit around the massive gas giant to study its structure and evolution, thanks in part to our radiation-hardened RAD750(r) single-board computer...

A new understanding of our galaxy's structure began in an unlikely way: on Twitter. A research effort sparked by tweets led scientists to confirm that the Milky Way’s central bulge of stars forms an “X” shape. The newly published study uses data from NASA's Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (WISE) mission. The unconventional collaboration started in May 2015 when Dustin Lang, an astronomer at the Dunlap Institute of the University of Toronto, posted galaxy maps t...

Using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, astronomers have conducted the first search for atmospheres around temperate, Earth-sized planets beyond our solar system and found indications that increase the chances of habitability on two exoplanets. Specifically, they discovered that the exoplanets TRAPPIST-1b and TRAPPIST-1c, approximately 40 light-years away, are unlikely to have puffy, hydrogen-dominated atmospheres usually found on gaseous worlds. "The lack of a smothering hydrogen-helium enve...

Radiation is an invisible hazard of spaceflight, but a new monitoring system for ESA astronauts gives a realtime snapshot of their exposure. The results will guide researchers preparing for deep-space missions to come. A key element of the new system launched to orbit with Monday's Falcon 9 launch to the International Space Station, ensuring it is in place for ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet's November mission to the Station. As a general rule, radiation exposure increases with altitude - peo...

    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.
