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...

    “Far better is it to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure... than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much, because they live in a gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat."

    -Theodore Roosevelt-

    Ever since my childhood I have been highly dedicated to become a scientist/research engineer working on cutting-edge research projects. I have been impressed by the space programs of the 60’s and the tremendous accomplishments of engineers back then. As a child I became determined to become one of those men one day. This inspiration made me do my best throughout my studies and I have never stopped 'daring mighty things'. I would like to contribute to the exploration of space and my dream is to stand one day near a launch pad watching some equipment, in the development of which I have taken part, lifting off. I am ever curious and interested in almost anything ranging from politics and history to neuroscience and artificial intelligence, but my passion has always been space exploration and physics.

    Professional Profile


    ·         Strong skills in mathematics and physics based on my high school education having been focused on these subjects (I won numerous awards in national competitions) and the MSc degree in physics which pairs up with good analytical skills and a natural sense of problem solving.

    ·         Besides the theoretical knowledge recognized by former advisors as a thorough experimenter.

    ·         In-depth knowledge of fluid dynamics, thermodynamics and combustion.

    ·         Good and effective communication skills chiseled while having edited the former website of an amateur sports federation and writing numerous posts for an increasingly popular science blog.

    ·         Especially fond of learning and understanding new concepts and working with pen and paper.

    ·         Work well with others but also capable of working individually. Due to the considerable amount of time spent abroad have no problems with adapting to different cultures and an international group.
