For the first time ever astronomers have studied an asteroid that has entered the Solar System from interstellar space. Observations from ESO's Very Large Telescope in Chile and other observatories around the world show that this unique object was traveling through space for millions of years before its chance encounter with our star system. It appears to be a dark, reddish, highly-elongated rocky or high-metal-content object. The new results appear in the journal Nature on 20 November 2017. ...

Twice as big as Earth, the super-Earth 55 Cancri e was thought to have lava flows on its surface. The planet is so close to its star, the same side of the planet always faces the star, such that the planet has permanent day and night sides. Based on a 2016 study using data from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope, scientists speculated that lava would flow freely in lakes on the starlit side and become hardened on the face of perpetual darkness. The lava on the dayside would reflect radiation from th...

Landing on Mars is difficult and not always successful. Well-designed advance testing helps. An ambitious NASA Mars rover mission set to launch in 2020 will rely on a special parachute to slow the spacecraft down as it enters the Martian atmosphere at over 12,000 mph (5.4 kilometers per second). Preparations for this mission have provided, for the first time, dramatic video of the parachute opening at supersonic speed. The Mars 2020 mission will seek signs of ancient Martian life by investiga...

A temperate Earth-sized planet has been discovered only 11 light-years from the Solar System by a team using ESO's unique planet-hunting HARPS instrument. The new world has the designation Ross 128 b and is now the second-closest temperate planet to be detected after Proxima b. It is also the closest planet to be discovered orbiting an inactive red dwarf star, which may increase the likelihood that this planet could potentially sustain life. Ross 128 b will be a prime target for ESO's Extremely ...

What seemed at first like a rare instance of a huge, ancient galaxy revealed itself to be an even rarer pair of extremely massive galaxies, seen on the brink of merging when the Universe was only a billion years old. This outstanding source was first identified by ESA's Herschel space observatory, and later exposed in greater detail with the ground-based Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) in Chile. The earliest galaxies in the 13.8 billion-year history of our cosmos starte...

    Dear Sir or Madam,
     
    I strongly believe that I have the aptitude, ambitions and enthusiasm needed that I can develop into a valuable member of the engineering team of an international company.
    During the last two years I have developed my technical and analytical skills working as a member of a research group at an ESA’s project. My occupation with this high demand project has improved my ability to work independently within an extensive team environment. In the frame of the project I have developed software for spectral analysis and signal filtering through digital filters. Mostly I have dealt with satellite data from ESA’s earth observation missions, such as data from the accelometer of CHAMP mission and gradiometer’s data of the ESA’s new satellite mission GOCE. The research’s results have been presented at the 4th International GOCE User Workshop the previous April in Munich.
    I am confident that both my academic and professional experience in GPS system serves me well in a relevant position. In terms of academic level, during my MSc studies, I have established a geodetic network for geodynamic research (field measurements, data processing by miscellaneous GNSS software and software development in MATLAB for crustal deformation monitoring). Additionally, I have applied GPS kinematic methods (DGPS - RTK) through permanent GPS network (HERMES) in order to control the method’s accuracy. Moreover, in the frame of my diploma thesis I have developed software in MATLAB for satellites orbits (GPS, LEO) computation and simulation. At a professional level, during the last four years I have been working as a freelancer for the establishment of a number of GPS networks and for topographic surveys as well. I have been working both at field measurements and data analysis and also as a CAD operator.
    My post graduated as well as my MSc studies gave me powerful qualification in the fields of space engineer and geoinformation. More specifically I have dealt with statistics, estimation theory, mathematical model and observation equations analysis of the GPS system, navigation, earth observation and the principles of these kind of satellites (such as CHAMP, GRACE, GOCE, CRYOSAT, altimeter satellites), data processing, orbit determination, signal processing, filtering and programming. Additionally my experience with the ESA’s project gave me experience working in a team environment and knowledge working at all the phases of a project (data analysis, requirements analysis, functional specifications, software development, testing).
    My professional and academic experience combined with my passion for problem solving make me ideal for projects where deadlines, viability, innovation and user satisfaction are all vital.
    I am flexible regarding the start date. I would welcome the opportunity to discuss my suitability and my ideas for developing a role in person. I don’t speak French very well yet, but because I am living in France now, I have started French lessons in order of communication.
    I look forward to hearing from you.
    Kind regards,
