Direct link to Manuela Campanelli's profile:
Manuela Campanelli has lead a very international lifestyle. She was born in Switzerland, attended school in Italy, worked in the United States and Germany, and married an Argentinean.
Campanelli was twelve when she saw Carl Sagan's television series "Cosmos" and became fascinated with physics. At fourteen, her family moved to Italy. At the secondary school she attended, she was one of two women studying in the science department. She later continued her studies at the University of Perugia which was near her family. The university lacked an astrophysics department, so she studied applied mathematics instead. She did keep up an interest in astrophysics, and was encouraged to apply to the University of Bern to study the subject. It was there that she met her future-husband, Carlos Lousto. The two moved to Utah, and then back to Germany.
