I was born in Milan, northern Italy, on December 28th 1976.
I have studied IT for six years then I shifted to Industrial Design. I have graduated in Industrial Design (MSc) at the Milan's Polytechnic University.
I lived for a while in UK and I still have a lot of friends there (whenever I have time I catch a plane and go visit them).
I currently live in San Donato Milanese (a town about six miles south of Milan) and I work in the car design field.
I do love aeronautics, space and rocket science since I was five. I always had the best admiration about Astronomy, I keep a Newton reflective telescope in my second house in the Alps (clearer skies).
Actually I am not that good as astronomer, I am far better skiing.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
1-Yes, I think ET life is very likely to exist, the universe is just too big for us alone. I think humans could be able to discover it as soon as we reach their technology or they reach ours. We might discover that we are not that good after all but in any case they are probably just too far even to do a two way communication.
2-Yes, I think we should send a beacon. I would send the atomic number of Carbonium in pulses, again, and again to be followed by Oxigen and Hydrogen (twice the time for Hydrogen as to send the water molecule H2O)
3-I run SETI@home to employ my computer in one of the most exciting adventures of our time and also to partecipate in the biggest Supercomputer ever. Let's do screen savers also for turbolent plasma flow and other phisics problems.
