In the first act of lunar exploration, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were major characters. In setting its sights on the Moon, ESA hopes to bring many more actors to this off-world stage. By testing the market for transport services to the Moon, ESA aims to push the limits of technology and create new models of space business. Touching down on the Moon was a monumental moment in human history. Eight short years and enormous resources took humankind to the lunar surface, initially for le...

Astronomers have used ALMA to capture a strikingly beautiful view of a delicate bubble of expelled material around the exotic red star U Antliae. These observations will help astronomers to better understand how stars evolve during the later stages of their life-cycles. In the faint southern constellation of Antlia (The Air Pump) the careful observer with binoculars will spot a very red star, which varies slightly in brightness from week to week. This very unusual star is called U Antliae and...

The Sun's recent activity has caught the interest of scientists and space weather forecasters worldwide, highlighting the need to keep a watchful eye on our star and its awesome power. On 6 and 10 September, our Sun produced a pair of solar flares, the strongest observed in over 10 years. They were accompanied by huge eruptions of billions of tonnes of matter into space. While many such eruptions fall back onto the hot surface, these two did not and became 'coronal mass ejections' (CMEs) -...

NASA's Hubble Space Telescope has observed a planet outside our solar system that looks as black as fresh asphalt because it eats light rather than reflecting it back into space. This light-eating prowess is due to the planet's unique capability to trap at least 94 percent of the visible starlight falling into its atmosphere. The oddball exoplanet, called WASP-12b, is one of a class of so-called "hot Jupiters," gigantic, gaseous planets that orbit very close to their host ...

    Main activities and responsibilities

    VEGA is a European small launcher sponsored by ESA.

    I’ve started my job in the VEGA Program as support to the Assembly1 (A1) AIT/AIV responsible (6 months) and then I took the role of Assembly2 (A2) and Assembly3 (A3) responsible.

    As A2-A3 AIT/AIV responsible my main activities were:

    - To Issue and update Assemblies’ AIT documentation (SMO, AIT plan, Acceptance specification, user manuals, Interface Control Document, DID).

    - To guarantee the coherence of the Assemblies layout and to manage the design activities (one CATIA draftsman reported to me).

    -To Approve the procedures for Manufacturing and Integration, and to review subcontractors documentation, working with PA people in order to assure that all documents were compliant with the requirements.

    -To manage the Assy integration and acceptance activities accordingly with the customer (ESA) requirements.

    - To planning the integration and acceptance activities of the flight units on the basis of the availability of facility and personnel.

    - To participate to the integration activities of Vega’s Zefiro 9-A first and second firing test.

    As part of the AIT department:

    - I’ve been responsible for the Launcher Additional Telemetry layout and configuration.

    - I’ve issued the Launcher Mechanical and Pyro SMO and I’ve contributed to the finalization of the Operational Plan, and the preparatory work for the operations in Kourou (French Guyana) related to the test campaign and the flight campaign, playing design authority role.

    In parallel to my main tasks, I worked closely with PA becoming familiar with PA and QA working methods, rules and procedure:I prepared and took part to MRR (Manufacturing Readiness Review), DRB (Delivery Review Board), IRR (Integration Readiness Review), TRR (Test Readiness Review), BT (Technical Balance meetings with the costumer as technical authority). I treated anomalies and approved request for deviation and request for waiver (RFD/RFW). I revised the Vega procedures to guarantee the respect of the Safety requirements, acquiring a quite good knowledge about the safety aspects relevant to the launcher.
