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...

    CV

    I am performing my job in avionics (latelyfor Airbus A350 aircraft  and formerly for Agusta Westland EH101 helicopter). This sector is particular critic so that a great attention must be paid on doing things with great accuracy.

    I have recently moved to Frankfurt (latest work wasfor Diehl Aerospace). I have worked for my former company for 10+ years and there I was mainly dealing with Agusta Westland EH101 helicopter software; during this time I also got a second university degree. Before I had a 2 years experience doing software for a bank and a few months experience as a mechanical engineer.

    I always try to perform my job as best as possible, not only because is my duty but because I want people dealing with me to be pleased with myself and with the job I do. This is why, even though my job experience is essentially in sw, I don`t mind to face the difficulties of a completely new kind of job: motivations for a job I like and knowledge I got during university and some years of work, are strong starting points to perform well in any kind of job I am interested in.

    I have good team working and communication skills and a proactive approach in problem solving; I am flexible with  an analytical approach to problems and a great attention to details. I am able to identify critical issues and I have good organizational skills as well as high motivations.
