Could the moon be billions of years younger than we thought? Samples collected during China’s Chang’e-5 mission enabled in part by ERZIA will tell us soon. ERZIA has long designed, developed, and manufactured space qualified RF and microwave devices for the space/aerospace industry. This year ERZIA amplifiers are instrumental in a breakthrough mission with China’s Chang’e-5 moon lander probe, which will collect the youngest lunar samples ever and deliver them to Earth via a lunar orbiter around December 16, 2020. The lander was launched on November 23, 2020.
ERZIA Celebrates Contribution to Mission Success
ERZIA congratulates Stefano Vitale, this year’s recipient of the Tycho Brahe Medal. The medal recognizes his leadership of the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) Pathfinder mission. The award, bestowed by The European Astronomical Society, acknowledges the mission’s extraordinary success proving the technology required for the gravitational wave observatory planned to be launched in 2034.
On Wednesday 5th December, the members of the QV-LIFT team closed the very first two-way loop between the Aeronautical Terminal and the Earth Station operating in Tito Scalo (Italy) through the Alphasat satellite.
This achievement represents a remarkable and successful milestone for the QV-LIFT project.
The Aeronautical Terminal carries state of the art components manufactured by ERZIA such as as the LNB and BUC that enable the communication in Q and V bands.

The first of two joint ESA–Roscosmos missions to Mars has begun a seven-month journey to the Red Planet, where it will address unsolved mysteries of the planet's atmosphere that could indicate present-day geological – or even biological – activity.
