If anything should break in space, let it be records. The astronauts of Expedition 50 have done just that by setting a new record for most time spent on scientific research on the International Space Station. ESA astronaut Thomas Pesquet, NASA astronauts Shane Kimbrough and Peggy Whitson, and cosmonauts Oleg Novitsky, Andrei Borisenko and Sergei Ryzhikov clocked a combined 99 hours of science in the week of 6 March. To put this into perspective, astronauts average a 40 hour working week sp...

Thanks to social media and the power of citizen scientists chasing the northern lights, a new feature was discovered recently. Nobody knew what this strange ribbon of purple light was, so ... it was called Steve. ESA's Swarm magnetic field mission has now also met Steve and is helping to understand the nature of this new-found feature. Speaking at the recent Swarm science meeting in Canada, Eric Donovan from the University of Calgary explained how this new finding couldn't have happened 20...

With the help of an automated supernova-hunting pipeline and a galaxy sitting 2 billion light years away from Earth that's acting as a "magnifying glass,'' astronomers have captured multiple images of a Type Ia supernova-the brilliant explosion of a star-appearing in four different locations on the sky. So far this is the only Type Ia discovered that has exhibited this effect. This phenomenon called 'gravitational lensing' is an effect of Einstein's Theory of Relativity-mass bends light. This...

This stunning cosmic pairing of the two very different looking spiral galaxies NGC 4302 and NGC 4298 was imaged by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope. The image brilliantly captures their warm stellar glow and brown, mottled patterns of dust. As a perfect demonstration of Hubble's capabilities, this spectacular view has been released as part of the telescope's 27th anniversary celebrations. Since its launch on 24 April 1990, Hubble has been nothing short of a revolution in astronomy. The fir...

An exoplanet orbiting a red dwarf star 40 light-years from Earth may be the new holder of the title "best place to look for signs of life beyond the Solar System". Using ESO's HARPS instrument at La Silla, and other telescopes around the world, an international team of astronomers discovered a "super-Earth" orbiting in the habitable zone around the faint star LHS 1140. This world is a little larger and much more massive than the Earth and has likely retained most of its atmosphere. This, along w...

With two suns in its sky, Luke Skywalker's home planet Tatooine in "Star Wars" looks like a parched, sandy desert world. In real life, thanks to observatories such as NASA's Kepler space telescope, we know that two-star systems can indeed support planets, although planets discovered so far around double-star systems are large and gaseous. Scientists wondered: If an Earth-size planet were orbiting two suns, could it support life? It turns out, such a planet could be quite h...

    System and Telecom Engineer

     

    Personal Profile

     

    I am a qualified Telecom Engineer with 6 years testing experience, including 4 years in the French Telecom industry. My contribution to Telecom companies such as Indra Espacio, Texas Instruments and Philips in particular proved to be a success. I facilitated digital and analogue validation tests of a UMTS modem ASIC by automating the testing environment via GPIB and UART standards. It resulted by a significant gain of time=money to the company. I have gained skills in SIM card connectivity validation of a Low-Cost GPRS ASIC. I possess a scientific, analytic and a proactive mind and I am fond of new technological advancements. After 4 years experience in France, I decided to expand my experience to international markets and enhance my level of expertise as a creative Telecom Engineer. I have worked 1.5 year in a start-up company based in Cambridge, UK. I had the opportunity to work on Wireless USB, which is a new emerging technology. After this first successful experience abroad, I got a second opportunity in space industry in Barcelona, Spain as a Software Engineer. I have well developed interpersonal and technical skills and I am confident in my capabilities in delivering a first class job in whichever capacity I am employed in. My interpersonal and communication skills allow me to efficiently interact with customers or co-worker. I am able to communicate fluently using english, spanish and french languages.

    My ultimate aim is to change my current position to some new management activities for creating and developing innovative projects. I will be an asset to any organisation that employs me and will successfully contribute to the development of both Software and/or Hardware concepts and solutions.
