NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope helped an international team of astronomers find that an unusual object in the asteroid belt is, in fact, two asteroids orbiting each other that have comet-like features. These include a bright halo of material, called a coma, and a long tail of dust. Hubble was used to image the asteroid, designated 300163 (2006 VW139), in September 2016 just before the asteroid made its closest approach to the Sun. Hubble’s crisp images revealed that it was actual...

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 ...

    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.
