AIAA NASA Astrobee Guest Speaker: Roberto Carlino
Astrobee is a robot that will soon be flying around the International Space Station (ISS) alongside the astronauts. This compact, 1 foot by 1 foot by 1 foot cube is designed to: help scientists and engineers develop and test technologies for use in zero-gravity; help the astronauts do their routine chores; and give flight controllers in Houston additional eyes and ears on spacecraft
Astrobee builds on the success of SPHERES, NASA’s first generation free-flyer now aboard the ISS, but can take on research, housekeeping, and monitoring duties without astronaut supervision—Astrobee can operate either in fully automated mode or under remote control from Houston, without wasting valuable astronaut time. That allows it to run more often and provide more time for testing new technologies in “zero gee”.

Bio Roberto:
Roberto is an Aerospace Engineer at NASA Ames, currently working as a hardware/flight software engineer for the Astrobee project.
Before that, he was working at the Science Processing Operation Center (SPOC) for the mission Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS) (follow-on mission of the Kepler Space Telescope), which will search for exoplanets around the closest and brightest stars to our Sun.
Roberto started at NASA Ames around 3 years ago, working on different projects and mission proposals.
He got his Bachelor’s degree and Master of Science in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Naples Federico II, in Italy, and Delft University of Technology, in The Netherlands. After that, he got his second Master degree in ‘Space Systems and Services’ from the University of Rome, La Sapienza. When is not at work, Roberto loves flying, skydiving, scuba diving, surfing and hiking. Among his passions, he also loves cooking good Italian food, especially (real) Pizza.

Come join us for an exciting guest speaker from NASA Ames Research Center. Roberto Carlino will give a technical talk about NASA’s Flying Astrobee Robots that will be conducting research in zero-gravity along side astronauts on the ISS.
There will be food and drinks, and feel free to invite your friends!
