Rosa Jesse

Senior Editor

Rosa is a Senior Editor. She writes and edits for ESA’s Space Transportation Systems and Deputy Team Leader for our contract with the German Aerospace Center (DLR).

Rosa has a degree in Physics with a specialisation in Astrophysics from the University of Leeds and a master’s degree in the History and Philosophy of Science from University College London. She now spends her days preparing campaigns, researching and publishing news articles, designing infographics and videos, while also helping to organise outreach events. Her focus is on how asteroids, solar storms and space junk have the potential to disrupt life on our Pale Blue Dot, and the science fiction-sounding methods aimed at preventing this from happening. Rosa also covers day-to-day operations at ESA’s mission control – where space in Europe comes to life – 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.
