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 ...

    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.
