Le universitÓ milanesi e il mistero. Unknown Unknowns... in space

28.10.2022

Politecnico di Milano, together with other universities of Milan, collaborated to the realisation of the exhibition and a series of publications on the themes of "Unknown Unknowns. An Introduction to Misteries", for the 23rd Triennale Milano International Exhibition.

Our PhD students of Aerospace Science and Technology Department, Marco Felice Montaruli, Francesca Scala, and Andrea Muciaccia, talks about "Unknown Unknowns" in the space field.

Their article was published on the 5th of October in the magazine "Diario 2022" on the website of the Triennale di Milano.

We would like to acknowledge the Triennale di Milano, the coordinator Pupak Tahereh Bashirrad, the exhibition curators Ersilia Vaudo Scarpetta e Marilia Pederbelli, as well as the president of the Triennale Stefano Boeri.

Andrea Muciaccia is a PhD candidate at the Department of Aerospace Science and Technology (DAER) of Politecnico di Milano, as part of the COMPAS group. His research topics concern the definition of a metric to assess the impact of a space mission on the space environment and the characterization of a capacity concept to regulate the sustainability of the space, and the investigation of in-orbit fragmentations.

Francesca Scala is a PhD candidate at the Department of Aerospace Science and Technology (DAER) of Politecnico di Milano, as part of the COMPASS group. Her research activities focus on the design of formation flying strategies for remote sensing applications, guidance navigation and control, relative motion, and trajectory optimisation.

Marco Felice Montaruli is a PhD candidate from the Department of Aerospace Science and Technology (DAER) of Politecnico di Milano. His research focuses on multi-receiver radar applications for space surveillance, and he supports operation centres in satellite orbit determination, their conjunction analysis, the monitoring of their on-ground re-entry and the spacecraft fragmentation events.
