Description

Italy has been making important investments in space since 1960s. The first European country, the third in the world, to launch scientific satellites, Italy was one of the founding countries of the European Space Agency (1975) and now it is the third contributor to ESA (European Space Agency). Established in 1988, ASI is a Governmental Agency for promotion, development and diffusion of scientific and technological research in the fields of space and aerospace, as scientific observation and exploration of the universe, earth observation, telecommunications and navigation, microgravity and education. Important is the contribution to the International space station, where a relevant part of the habitable volume of the orbiting platform has been mainly built in Italy.

E' davvero emozionante rivedere ed ascoltare un carissimo amico di infanzia (Andrea Lorenzoni),dopo tanti anni,conoscendolo già bravissimo a scuola e nello sport.Le sue grandi qualità le ha potuto mostrare e le mostra ancora anche in altri campi(quello spaziale innanzitutto)e non posso che esserne emozionato.rivedendolo e risentendolo ,ritorno indietro a quando eravamo ragazzi e l'emozione ancora mi prende.Posso dirmi fortunato e orgoglioso d'averlo incontrato nella mia vita e da lui
anch'io ho imparato tante cose, come la tenacia nello studio e l'allargamento della conoscenza che è immensa in questo mondo e in questo universo,e non dobbiamo mai dimenticare di essere stati fortunati ad essere nati e a poter osservare e leggere questo immenso "libro scritto con linguaggio matematico",come disse G. Galilei.Spero di poter ancora contattare l'Ing. Andrea Lorenzoni,amico indimenticabile. Un carissimo saluto da PASQUALE FRULLI (Crispiano-Taranto - Via G. La Pira 88)
