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...

Gas giant Jupiter, organic molecules in star-forming clouds and baby galaxies in the distant Universe are among the first targets for which data will be immediately available from the James Webb Space Telescope once it begins casting its powerful gaze on the Universe in 2019. Thirteen "early release" programmes were chosen from more than 100 proposals after a competitive peer-review selection process within the astronomical community. The programmes have been allocated nearly 500 hours of obs...

    Research Activity
    My research is mainly focused on the effects that massive stars (OB spectral type) have on the star formation
    process in the parental cloud and on the evolution of nearby T-Tauri stars. My studies are mainly focused
    on the triggering of star formation by the OB stars, induced by the formation of expanding ionization fronts
    in the cloud irradiated by the UV radiation emitted by OB stars (Elmegreen & Lada, 1977; Lada 1987),
    and on the externally induced photoevaporation of circumstellar disks experiencing intense incident UV flux
    (Johnstone et al. 1998; Storzer & Hollenbach 1999; Adams et al. 2004), which strongly affects the planets
    formation process in disks.
    I studied these effects in the star forming region M16 (the Eagle Nebula), which hosts the young open cluster
    NGC 6611 with 54 OB stars and a rich population of low mass disk-bearing members younger than 3 million
    of years, and Cygnus OB2 region, which is the closest massive star forming region (with thousands of OB
    stars) to the Sun.
    In the Eagle Nebula I found evidence that disks are less frequent close to the OB stars (closer than 1 parsec
    on average) with respect to the outer regions of the cluster. This finding agrees with the hypothesis that in the
    last 1 million year (which is the average age of cluster members), the Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) radiation
    dissipated the circumstellar disks inducing the photoevaporation process. For average distances larger than 1
    parsec the disk frequency is almost constant, suggesting that at this distances the photoevaporation is induced
    by Far UltraViolet photons, with a dissipation timescale larger than the age of NGC 6611. In clusters with
    the content of OB stars similar to NGC 6611, then, the early evolution of disks is affected only in the cluster
    centers, while in the outer regions they can evolve and eventually form planetary systems unperturbed. I also
    found evidence that the star formation in M16 was triggered by the central massive stars in the last Myear
    only in the North-East direction. Very likely, the first events of star formation have been triggered in the
    South-West about 3Myrs ago by the incidence of a Giant Molecular Shell, created by supernova explosions
    about 6 million years ago (Moriguchi et al. 2002).
    In Cygnus OB2 I am currently working on the compilation of deep optical and X-ray catalogs, which,
    merged with existing infrared and optical data, will allow us a complete census of the disk-bearing and diskless
    stars associated with the star forming region down to subsolar masses, and a detailed study of the star
    formation process and products in very massive star forming regions.
    Other important topics of my research are the study of the properties of circumstellar disks by the analysis of
    their Spectral Energy Distributions, which leaded to the discovery of a subsample of disk-bearing members
    of M16 whose optical colors are heavily altered by scattered light being similar to those of field Main
    Sequence stars; and the study of the X-ray properties of young stars. In fact, I’ve analyzed in detail the Xray
    observations of M16 in order to compare its X-ray luminosity with that of other young clusters, to study
    the effects of the circumstellar disks on the coronal activity of the hosting star, and the X-ray properties of
    OB stars.
