Compact biography

Marco Buttu works for the Italian National Institute for Astrophysics, leading the control software development for the Sardinia Radio Telescope, one of the biggest single-dish world's telescopes. He is a Python addicted, but currently he is not able to contribute to his preferred programming language because of his unusual condition. He is living in the most isolated place on Earth, totally dark for three months, with temperatures around -80 Celsius degrees. An extraterrestial environment without any form of life around. He is looking at the marvellous Antarctic sky trough a telescope and dreaming to go to Mars.
