Gabriele Cremonese

I'm an astronomer and I have always worked at the Astronomical Observatory of Padova. I started with telescope observations of comets; I discovered the sodium tail on comet Hale-Bopp, and exospheres of the Moon, Mercury and Io.

I started to be involved in space missions with OSIRIS, the camera on board of the Rosetta Mission; since then I have been involved in every ESA mission for Solar System exploration. I'm the PI of SIMBIO-SYS, the suite of three optical heads on board the BepiColombo Mission.
