Rosa is space safety and security editor for the European Space Agency’s web portal, and is based at ESOC, the European Space Operations Centre in Darmstadt, Germany.
Rosa has a degree in Physics with Astrophysics from the University of Leeds and a Masters in the History and Philosophy of Science from University College London. She now spends her days writing about how asteroids, solar storms and space junk have the potential to disrupt life on our Pale Blue Dot, and the near science fiction methods aimed at preventing this from happening. She also covers day-to-day operations at ESA’s mission control and tweets from @ESAOperations. Before joining EJR-Quartz, Rosa worked in academic science publishing, was a science writer at the European Southern Observatory and briefly Public Information Officer for the Hubble Space Telescope.
