ISAE-SUPAERO is a research and innovation-driven institution of higher education, committed to balancing scientific excellence, academic visibility and proximity to industrial objectives. Its research activities have helped to make the school an international leader not only in terms of its aerospace engineering program but also its post-graduate programs including its masters (MSc) and doctoral programs in engineering sciences.
Therefore, many international key players in research visit their conterparts at ISAE-SUPAERO.
We have met Dan Sheeres a University of Colorado Distinguished Professor and the A. Richard Seebass Chair in the Ann and H.J. Smead Aerospace Engineering Sciences Department at the University of Colorado Boulder.
Dan Scheeres research spans the topics of astrodynamics and spacecraft navigation to planetary science and celestial mechanics, and has published extensively in these
fields. Asteroid 8887 is named Scheeres in recognition of his contributions to the scientific understanding of the dynamical environment about asteroids.
During his time at ISAE-SUPAERO, Prof. Scheeres and the Space Systems for Planetary Applications team collaborated on analyses of DART data and the development of concepts to probe the internal structure of asteroids during future space missions.
Moreover, Dan Scheeres and ISAE-SUPAERO have jointly published several articles in Nature about asteroids and the DART mission.
