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 ...

    Feasibility of new method to increase the dimensional stability of space structures - Feb ‘12

    -        An active compensation method for the deformation of composite [Gr/Ep] structures using additional controllable metal parts is proposed, and its feasibility is experimentally investigated in a simulated space environment. The aim of this new method is to increase dimensional stability in high-performance measuring system or space telescopes.

    -        Main instruments used: Vacuum Chamber, Fiber Bragg Grating sensors (FBG), Displacement-measuring Interferometer System (DMI), Autoclave.

    -        Acquired skills: project engineering, very accurate measuring system (tolerance of nm), composite structures design and manufacture, behavior in space of composite structures, review and conference documents creation.

    -        Conference held at KAIST, South Korea, and paper published on International Journal.

     

    Space Mission Design: phase A and B – Structural SubsystemFeb ‘11

    -        The master course concerned ECSS phase A and B of Space Mission. It required the development of one or more systems that satisfied the mission’s objectives. The team involved 12 people.

    -        The aims were debris deorbiting and on-orbit refueling by operational satellites. To achieve these targets, three different systems have been developed: two for debris disposal, and one for refueling.

    -        As structural subsystem leader my duty was to design the structure (shape, materials, joints) and demonstrate the feasibility of the project having natural frequencies of the satellites decoupled by the ones of the launchers (Ariane V) and maintaining the whole weight and sizes under the limits imposed by requirements.

    -        Final presentation held in July 2011 at ESA-ESTEC, Netherlands, and Politecnico di Milano, Italy.
