What am I working on?
My name is Mireia Colina-Fatjó. To understand who I am you would need to know more about me. I have a double degree in Telecommunications Engineering. In my fourth year of University, I attended an Astronomy course and I became fascinated with the subject. I discovered a new world of which I knew I had
Since I can remember, I was fascinated by understanding how things work. Once for Christmas I asked for a microscope, but a somewhat scatter-brained Santa Claus brought me a telescope. “Well, this would also do” I thought.

After my bachelor’s in Theoretical Physics, I decided to step foot into the ‘world of space’ by doing my masters at the International Space University. During my time at ISU I went to NASA Goddard Space Flight Centre to work on an Astrophysics project and later went to the ESA at the European Astronaut Centre
Since I was a child I always wanted to make the world a better place. I found that travelling helped me better understand the world, so in the beginning of my career I travelled a lot, and worked in different countries to better capture the needs of people and find impactful ways to help. Originally
Since I was a child, I had a place as a privileged spectator of the Italian space world, and I had the opportunity to witness the launch at the Kourou base when I was a teenager. I was definitively fascinated by this world and by what the people can do with their research and knowledge.
Have you ever asked yourself “How can I have a global impact and help the human population understand that we shall take care of our planet?“ or “How can I foster STEAM education and encourage children to pursue their dreams and never give up?” Big dream/vision, I know… but I once read that the “word
