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 ...

Launch is the most strenuous part of a satellite's life. To survive the extreme sound wave pressure and pounding vibrations generated by more than 700,000 lbs. of thundering rocket thrust, spacecraft need a solid, reliable design if they hope to arrive operational on orbit. On July 13, Lockheed Martin (LMT)'s second, fully-assembled GPS III space vehicle (SV) completed a realistic simulation of its future launch experience and passed this critical acoustic environmental test with flying color...

    Scientific Contributions
    • Super-TIGER is a large-area (5.4 m2) experiment designed to measure ultra-heavy cosmic-ray nuclei utilizing scintillating fiber hodoscopes, Cherenkov counters, and scintillator detectors.
    • The experiment was launched on a heavy-lift stratospheric balloon from Williams Field, Antarctica in December 2012 and flew for a NASA record-breaking flight duration of 55 days.
    • Washington University in St. Louis is one of the principal institutions in a collaboration involving NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Caltech and the University of Minnesota.
    • As the lead Research Scientist in the Super-TIGER group at Washington University, I was involved in the construction of the scintillating fiber hodoscope system used for measuring particle trajectory through the instrument.
    • I also worked in electronics testing (functionality, temperature cycling and vacuum tests) along with integration of the many particle detector systems on the experiment at several NASA facilities.
    • During the construction phase of Super-TIGER, I designated work loads between the research group and liaised between the scientific personnel and technical staff on the project across the participating institutions.
    • I have experience in researching, ordering and assembling parts for use on the Super-TIGER experiment.
    • I was also primarily responsible for the design, testing and construction of the LED calibration system for use with the 288 Photo-Multiplier Tubes utilized on the hodoscope system.
    • Furthermore, I participated in the flight preparation, launch and live-monitoring of the Super-TIGER payload during a 96-day stay in Antarctica in the 2012/2013 season. Also a member of four-person Super-TIGER “recovery team" during 2013/2014 Antarctic season.

    • VERITAS (Very Energetic Radiation Imaging Telescope Array System) is a telescope array, located at the Fred Lawrence Whipple Observatory in southern Arizona, USA.
    • This array utilizes the stereoscopic Imaging Atmospheric Cherenkov Technique to detect sources of very high-energy (VHE) gamma rays in the cosmos.
    • A key VERITAS science project was a survey of the Cygnus region of the galactic plane (67◦ < l < 82◦ and -1 ◦< b < 4◦) in a search for new sources of VHE gamma rays in our galaxy.
    • The Cygnus sky survey was successfully carried out over several periods from 2007 to 2009 with over 140 hours of observations taken (and is expected to provide the most sensitive VHE flux measurements of the Cygnus region to date).
    • My research in VERITAS revolved around the analysis and interpretation of the data from the survey.
    • I also provided rapid data quality monitoring, that provided timely feedback to the on-site observers, to ensure uniform quality coverage across the region.
    • To understand the systematics of the VERITAS array in survey mode, e.g. sensitivity across the focal plane, searches for sources in unknown locations; data analysis of observations of MGROJ1908+06/ HESSJ1908+063 (an extended source of VHE emission) was also undertaken.
    • The results of my work on this source has been presented at a conference (see Publications - Proceedings sections). I also led a successful proposal to the VERITAS Time Allocation Committee for deeper observations of this source.
    • My research work involved spending several months on-site at the VERITAS array in southern Arizona where I worked on VERITAS maintenance such as alignment of the mirror systems of the telescopes, optical Point-Spread Function and telescope pointing data taking, single photo-electron calibration measurements, fabrication of light cones and general site up-keep.
    • I also undertook numerous solo observing shifts on the Whipple 10-meter Cherenkov telescope and group shifts on the VERITAS array, gaining excellent experience for ensuring safe and successful data-taking operations through live-time monitoring of the experiment’s functionality while also providing rapid responses to any occurring difficulties with any sub-systems.
    • I have developed C++/ROOT code to generate flux values and maps for the entire survey region (or any other VERITAS observation) with aims of incorporation into the standard VERITAS analysis software package.
    This will be able to provide flux measurements/upper limits on the many potential VHE sources located within the surveyed region, or for use with any VERITAS observation.
    • Other work includes the estimation of the statistical trial factor involved in the search for gamma-ray signals in such a large region.
    • TRACER is a balloon-borne experiment that is currently the largest cosmic-ray detector to fly above the atmosphere.
    • It uses plastic scintillators, acrylic Cerenkov counters, specific ionization in gases and a Transition radiation detector (TRD) to measure the charge and energy of individual heavy cosmic-ray nuclei from 1010 to 1015 eV.
    • TRACER was built at the University of Chicago (UC) and has provided the most comprehensive measurements of heavy cosmic-ray nuclei to date.
    • I was a Research Assistant at UC for three summers (2004/05/06) working on the refurbishment of the TRACER TRD.
    • I helped design, build and commission a new gas supply system that supplies the 1000 liter TRD with a continual gas flow on the ground and allows for the provision of injecting gas into the TRD during flight.
    • In 2006 I joined the TRACER team at the launch-site in the ESRANGE Space Center in the Swedish Arctic,
    where we spent two months preparing the payload for flight. I was involved in the critical preflight gas-purge procedure, where the TRD was rapidly filled with flight grade Xenon.
    • After launch I undertook observing shifts, whereby the instrument was continually monitored via satellite from the launch site.
    • The results from this flight of TRACER have been presented at a conference (see Publications - Proceedings sections) and provide the most accurate measurements of the light to medium elements to date.
