NASA Team Finds Noxious Ice Cloud on Saturn's Moon Titan Researchers with NASA's Cassini mission found evidence of a toxic hybrid ice in a wispy cloud high above the south pole of Saturn's largest moon, Titan. The finding is a new demonstration of the complex chemistry occurring in Titan's atmosphere-in this case, cloud formation in the giant moon's stratosphere-and part of a collection of processes that ultimately helps deliver a smorgasbord of organic molecules to Titan's surface. Inv...

ESO's fleet of telescopes in Chile have detected the first visible counterpart to a gravitational wave source. These historic observations suggest that this unique object is the result of the merger of two neutron stars. The cataclysmic aftermaths of this kind of merger - long-predicted events called kilonovae - disperse heavy elements such as gold and platinum throughout the Universe. This discovery, published in several papers in the journal Nature and elsewhere, also provides the strongest ev...

For the first time, NASA scientists have detected light tied to a gravitational-wave event, thanks to two merging neutron stars in the galaxy NGC 4993, located about 130 million light-years from Earth in the constellation Hydra. Shortly after 8:41 a.m. EDT on Aug. 17, NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope picked up a pulse of high-energy light from a powerful explosion, which was immediately reported to astronomers around the globe as a short gamma-ray burst. The scientists at the National S...

The first Copernicus mission dedicated to monitoring our atmosphere, Sentinel-5P, has been launched from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome in northern Russia. The 820 kg satellite was carried into orbit on a Rockot launcher at 09:27 GMT (11:27 CEST) today. The first stage separated 2 min 16 sec after liftoff, followed by the fairing and second stage at 3 min 3 sec and 5 min 19 sec, respectively. The upper stage then fired twice, delivering Sentinel-5P to its final orbit 79 min after liftoff. ...

The first full-scale model of the rocket motor that will propel Ariane 6 and Vega-C into orbit has been cast and filled with inert propellant for testing at Europe's Spaceport in French Guiana. The P120C is the largest solid-propellant rocket motor ever built in one segment. Each P120C will hold over 140 tonnes of propellant in a carbon fibre casing almost 11.5 m long and about 3.4 m in diameter. It is derived from Vega's current first stage motor, the P80, which holds 88 tonnes of propell...

There's no map showing all the billions of exoplanets hiding in our galaxy -- they're so distant and faint compared to their stars, it's hard to find them. Now, astronomers hunting for new worlds have established a possible signpost for giant exoplanets. A new study finds that giant exoplanets that orbit far from their stars are more likely to be found around young stars that have a disk of dust and debris than those without disks. The study, published in The Astronomical Journal, focused on ...

Astronomers have identified a bumper crop of dual supermassive black holes in the centers of galaxies. This discovery could help astronomers better understand how giant black holes grow and how they may produce the strongest gravitational wave signals in the Universe. The new evidence reveals five pairs of supermassive black holes, each containing millions of times the mass of the Sun. These black hole couples formed when two galaxies collided and merged with each other, forcing their superma...

    COVER LETTER

     

    Dear Madam or Sir,

    I currently work as a Project Engineer at the CIRA (Italian Aerospace Research Centre) Icing Wind Tunnel, known to be the most advanced icing wind tunnel in the world.

    My day-to-day responsibilities go beyond those of a Project or Test engineer and I would describe my role as multifunctional and interdisciplinary. I take care of the technical aspects of the projects, assess the costs and manage the budget of our test campaigns and am also responsible for managing the day-to-day relationship with our customers. I am also involved in several other tasks, including the drafting of the commercial documents and of the contracts. I also perform part of the Project Management role.

    The customers I work with include some of the largest aircraft and aeronautical components manufacturers in the world. Typically, in any year I manage contracts with an aggregate worth of approximately €1,500,000/annum.

    While my day-to-day responsibilities are focused on project managing, I am also involved in research and development activities, and carry out experiments using different techniques, such as PIV, pressure transducers, IR thermography and others.

    I am keen to continue to develop my skills and to gain expertise in new fields. I have taken a number of courses and obtained qualifications on energy efficiency and production and on project management. This further study has allowed me to broaden my technical skills and to deepen my knowledge of industrial production plans, as well as of project management. As a result of these additional qualifications, I was able to work as a freelance consultant on a number of energy management projects over the past 12 months.

    I speak Italian (mother tongue), English and Spanish fluently. I also have a basic knowledge of Danish (having spent 18 months in Denmark in 2005), German (which I am still perfecting through daily study) and Chinese.

    I am passionate about what I do and have worked hard and applied myself to the best of my abilities throughout my professional and academic careers. I would like to continue to develop my career, finding a role that affords increasing levels of responsibility while allowing me to continue to learn and develop my skills. Moreover, I believe I would be a good fit in your organisation: I am motivated, keen to work hard and develop and have had the opportunity in my current role, as well as in previous roles, to work and manage complex projects with international customers and counterparties.
