After working more than 10 years in the Aerospace Industry, I realized that my true-calling was to be part of the Space Scientific Community. The mastery in Space Science and, even more, the Master Thesis work I performed last year at the European Space Astronomy Centre’s (ESAC), on the Solar Orbiter project, boosted this desire.
