Scientist for Skylab, had the responsibility for "Einstein," and many of the expert engineers and technicians who had worked on Skylab with Pippo brought invaluable know how to the design and development of Einstein. But the most significant contribution of Pippo to the mission came from his deep interest in the study of the X-ray emission from the coronas of normal stars. While most of us were interested in the study of extra galactic objects such as quasars, BL Lacs, clusters of galaxies, active galactic nuclei or exotic galactic objects such as binary X-ray stars, X-ray sources in globular clusters, supernova and supernova remnants, Pippo fully understood the great potential for discovery which existed in the study of normal stars.

ON THE HISTORY OF THE PALERMO ASTRONOMICAL OBSERVATORY GIORGIA FODERA. SERIO /stituto ed Osservatorio Astronomico, Palermo Fig. 1. The Palermo Astronomical Observatory as it appeared in 1804 The history of the Palermo Astronomical Observatory is the history of an institution that had its beginning two hundred years ago, actually two hundred and two years ago, since the Observatory was officially established in 1790.

I have, for some time, tried to find a rationale for his sudden success, but I have found none. I can only say that, as soon as he was charged with the project for the Observatory, he showed a strong drive, and started on the right footing, with a keen insight for the most appropriate project to be carried out at the time. ON THE HISTORY OF THE PALERMO ASTRONOMICAL OBSERVATORY 25 He left for a three year stay in Paris and London. From Paris, where he arrived at the beginning of April 1787, he wrote to his friend Prince of Torremuzza a long letter in which he neatly stated his programme: [.
