The spectacular images of the probe show us the solar atmosphere with unprecedented detail, thanks to the contribution of the Italian Space Agency’s Metis coronagraph, in partnership with and designed by a team made up of the National Institute for Astrophysics (INAF), the Universities of Florence and Padua and the CNR-IFN
A glacier in the Antarctica region, the Pordenone plain in Italy, and a spectacular view of the islands of the Galapagos archipelago are the first images acquired by the second satellite of the COSMO-SkyMed Second Generation (CSG) constellation, the dual system funded by the Italian Space Agency (ASI) and the Ministry of Defense, with the contribution of the Ministry of University and Research
The second satellite in Italy’s COSMO-SkyMed Second Generation Earth Observation programme, funded by the Italian Space Agency (ASI) with funds allocated by the Ministry of University and Research and the Ministry of Defence, took off correctly from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The COSMO-SkyMed constellation is the result and expression of the top talents in the Italian space industry with Leonardo and its joint ventures Thales Alenia Space and Telespazio and with contributions made by a significant number of SMEs
The space telescope, with three important, made in Italy instruments aboard, was launched at dawn. It will conduct studies based on X-ray polarimetry
The deep space journey of the Italian Space Agency’s satellite has started. The satellite was developed and manufactured by Argotec, which will be tasked with acting as a photojournalist for the American probe DART, which will in about a year will smash into Didymos, the smallest of the binary asteroids
The new network was built by e-GEOS (Telespazio/ASI) and is set to provide up-to-date, high-precision geodetic information through the signals generated by the satellite navigation systems
The space-bound incubator supported by ESA and ASI and generated from the synergy between the Incubator of Polytechnic of Turin I3P, the Polytechnic of Turin and Links Foundation, inaugurates the new node of the European network in Turin, the ESA Business Incubation Centre Turin, with the aim of supporting innovative companies in the space sector.
