  • 3. → INTRODUCTION TO THE ATV ALBERT EINSTEIN INFLIGHT CALL EVENT ESA is collaborating with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, the Israeli Space Agency, the Italian space agency ASI and the German Aerospace Center’s Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics to organise a live call with ESA astronaut Luca Parmitano from the International Space Station. The event will be held in three locations: the Politecnico di Milano in Italy, the Technische Universität München in Germany and the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in Israel. The programme will start with lectures at all three universities on space robotics and satellite technology, followed by an introduction to Europe’s fourth Automated Transfer Vehicle (ATV), named after Albert Einstein. ESA’s ATV-4 mission manager, Alberto Novelli, will introduce ATV and talk about the International Space Station and aspects of human spaceflight and exploration in general. A live connection to the International Space Station will be made and students from the universities will ask questions to ESA astronaut Luca Parmitano. Luca is on a 166-day mission on the Space Station taking part in around 20 ESA experiments covering a range of disciplines. ATV Albert Einstein, ESA’s supply and support spacecraft, was launched on 5 June 2013 from Europe’s Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana. The vehicle is one of the most reliable and complex spacecraft ever built in Europe and has the largest cargo capability of all vehicles that visit the International Space Station. The main objectives of this mission are to deliver 6.6 tonnes of cargo and maintain the Station’s orbit for six months. As part of ATV Albert Einstein’s cargo, ESA sent a number of copies of documents from the Albert Einstein archives, maintained at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. These folders were delivered to the Space Station where Luca will sign them before they are sent back to Earth. 3

  • 6. → Speakers Professor Amalia Ercoli Finzi Politecnico di Milano Italy Amalia Ercoli Finzi, former Director of the Department of Aerospace Engineering of Politecnico di Milano, has been working in the area of spaceflight dynamics for over 25 years, contributing in several space research areas such as space-mission design, attitude control, rendezvous and docking manoeuvres, dynamics and control of large space structures. At the moment she is the primary investigator of the SD2 experiment for the European Rosetta mission to Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko that will drill into the comet’s core and collect soil samples. She is also coordinator of Team Italia for the robotic A.M.A.L.I.A lunar mission. Prof. Finzi received the Gold Medal of the Italian Republic President in 2007 for scientific merits. In 2012, she was awarded the Frank J. Malina Astronautics Medal and the Leonardo-UGIS prize. She is Member of the Technical Scientific Committee of ASI and a full member of the International Academy of Astronautics. 6
  • 7. An intelligent Alter Ego on a distant planet Since the very beginning of the space era, robotics have contributed to exploration of celestial bodies, sending back spectacular images and huge amounts of information on unexplored worlds helping to build our current knowledge of the Solar System. The lecture will present some technical solutions used for space robots, with particular attention given to power production, locomotion, guidance navigation and control, communications and thermal protection. Like famous explorers of the past centuries, we are facing a great unknown: not in person, but through an ‘alter ego mirabilis’, intelligent and smart machines that allow us to explore virtually. 7
  • 8. Professor Alin Albu-Schäffer DLR Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics Germany Alin Albu-Schäffer graduated in electrical engineering at the Technical University of Timisoara, in 1993 and received a PhD in automatic control from the Technical University of Munich in 2002. In 2012, he took over as head of the Institute of Robotics and Mechatronics at the German Aerospace Center DLR which he joined in 1995 as a PhD candidate. Alin is a professor at the Technical University of Munich, holding the Chair for Sensor-Based Robotic Systems and Intelligent Assistance Systems at the Computer Science Department. The DLR robotics institute is one of the largest and most renowned labs in the area of space robotics but also working on assistance robotics for industrial and medical applications. His personal research interests include robot design, modelling and control, nonlinear systems, flexible joint and variable compliance robots, impedance and force control, physical human-robot interaction and biologically-inspired robot design. He has received several awards, including the IEEE King-Sun Fu Best Paper Award of the Transactions on Robotics in 2012, several Best Paper Awards on international conferences as well as the DLR Science Award. 8
  • 9. Space Robotics for On Orbit Servicing, Astronaut Assistance, and Planetary Exploration   The more we learn about our Solar System, the planets, their moons, asteroids and comets, the more we want to land on these bodies, explore and analyse their geology, and possibly find signs of life on these hostile worlds. Robots of increasing complexity are being developed today to analyse samples like a geologist or biologist would do on Earth. Robots will play an ever increasing role closer to Earth as well by servicing satellites, removing space debris or assisting astronauts during their daily work. Robots should exempt humans from dangerous or monotonous tasks, increase their working efficiency and allow them to concentrate on challenging scientific and engineering work. This talk will give an overview of the forefront of space robotics, DLR’s latest developments as well as perspectives on the coming years. 9
  • 10. Professor Daniel Rosenfeld The Hebrew University of Jerusalem Israel Daniel Rosenfeld earned his academic degrees at The Hebrew University, followed by a post-doctorate at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in 1986-1988 before returning to the Hebrew University as a professor. Prof. Rosenfeld did revolutionary work in fundamental physical problems that are central to the field of climate change such as the role of aerosols in precipitation-forming processes and their effects on storm intensity and on Earth’s energy budget. He is currently active in coordinating international research and designing satellite missions to study the impacts of man-made aerosols on clouds, precipitation and climate. His contributions were widely recognized by numerous international awards. 10
  • 11. Big impact of man-made tiny particles on weather and climate change Global warming is caused by greenhouse gases reducing the amount of cooling of thermal radiation from Earth to space compared to heating from solar radiation. Whereas the effect of carbon dioxide emissions is well known, little is known about the effect of manmade emissions of aerosols on our climate such as from smoke and sulphuric particles. These particles cool the world mainly by making the clouds brighter and covering larger areas and reflect more solar radiation back to space. Our limitations in defining this cooling effect dominates scientific uncertainty on global warming, feeding public controversy. This talk will discuss air pollution influences on cloud coverage and using recently developed satellite techniques for imaging and quantifying cloud-drop size and their impact on storms and Earth’s energy budget. 11
  • 12. → Albert einstein Albert Einstein’s paper, The foundation of the general theory of Relativity, predicted that light beams would bend around massive objects. The hypothesis was proven when British astronomer Arthur Eddington observed light beams from distant stars bending as they passed our Sun during a solar eclipse in 1919. This was considered conclusive proof that the theory was valid. Einstein’s contributions to science overturned our perception of the Universe and his work is used to guide spacecraft. The scientist was born in 1879 in Germany, but studied and spent his early career in Switzerland, where he worked at the Patent Office in Bern. Here he developed his revolutionary ideas and published four fundamental scientific papers on the photoelectric effect, Brownian motion, special relativity and the mass–energy equivalence.

(Albert Einstein Archives–Hebrew University of Jerusalem) 12 With his theories of relativity and the two-way relation between matter and energy (E=mc2), Einstein is a major icon of the 20th century. He was awarded the Nobel prize for physics at the age of 42. ATV Albert Einstein also has strong ties with Switzerland: part of its structure and subsystems are built by Swiss industry, such as the racks, the late-access cargo lift, meteoroid debris protection and critical electronic units.
