Amedeo Balbi is considered one of the main Italian science communicators in the field of astrophysics. He is a member of the International Astronomical Union and the Foundational Questions Institute ( FQXi ) and is the author of over 90 scientific publications . His studies range from the origin of the universe , to the problem of matter and dark energy to the search for life in the cosmos . Balbi stimulates the entire scientific community to consider the path of science not as automatic and impersonal, but as a human emotional experience.
“A dynamic process fuelled by people in the flesh , rather than as a collection of recipes or acquisitions ” ; with the hope that the scientific mind , as a tool to achieve progress , can become a prerequisite ” for an education that truly prepares people for life.”
