Jesús Estepa was born in Moguer, Huelva, in 1982. He wanted to be an astronaut since he was a little boy and in 2011 he reached the sky of the aerospace industry when he became the director of the multinational company Atexis in Spain. This young engineer supervises the work of 300 people.
Paco Chorobo (Úbeda, Jaén) quit his job as a telecommunications engineer in a multinational company to focus on his passion: being a luthier. He began in 2012, building a guitar for a friend and, since then, he has made almost fifty. He continues to be a guitar player and has also begun to give lutherie classes. Every guitar he makes is a personalized project, tailor made for the guitar player. This philosophy has allowed him to work for artists from Nepal, Iran, Switzerland and Chile.
He decided that he would become an astrophysicist after watching the film ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’. Born in Baena, Cordoba, Rafael Garrido was the only Spanish researcher who participated in the COROT space mission, developed by the European Space Agency. He is currently part of PLATO, with which he continues his search for planets that are similar to Earth. He has Parkinson’s disease but this hasn’t stopped him from continuing his research work at the Astrophysics Institute of Andalusia, in which he works since its beginnings.
Born in Seville, Sebastián Ruiz is co-founder of Wiriko, the first magazine in Spanish specialised in African arts and culture. He is a journalist and a vocational magician, and his goal is to make a living out of telling what is going on in Africa.
