A Night of Scientific Instruction

In the year of the fiftieth anniversary of the first lunar landing by Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, our College also celebrated the anniversary by inviting Dr. Claudio Sollazzo, a physicist who has worked for more than thirty years at the European Space Agency, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the Columbus Control Center. The scientist, who has contributed significantly to achieve great successes in space exploration in recent years, among other things, he was Mission Manager for the Huygens probe, from the beginning of the preparation of its operations to its descent on Titan. Meeting us on Wednesday, February 27, he spoke on a global vision of the methods and tools that scientists have at their disposal to investigate the universe, precisely of the mission that made it possible to land the Huygens probe on Titan, satellite of Saturn. This meeting was certainly a good opportunity to know the great progress of humanity in the exploration and study of the near universe, so we thank Dr. Sollazzo for the availability and mastery with which he was able to guide us to discover the frontiers of science and technique.
