Antonio A. Colella

Aerospace Systems Engineer/Astrophysicist


Antonio A. Colella’s biography consists of two parts: A professional career as an Aerospace Systems Engineer and his astrophysics research during retirement.

His Aerospace Systems Engineering career was at Computer Technology Associates (1994 to 2003), IBM/Lockheed Martin (1970 to 1994), GE (1966 to 1970), and Unisys (1961 to 1966). His expertise was system specification requirements and systems integration/test for complex electronic projects including: FAA En-route and Terminal Air Traffic Control systems; Weather and Radar Processor; FBI Integrated Automated Fingerprint Identification System; Global Positioning System (GPS); Nuclear submarine sonar trainers; LAMPS helicopter flight, tactical, and maintenance trainers; AEGIS Combat System; Manned Orbiting Laboratory (MOL) and simulator; World Wide Military Command and Control System; SAFEGUARD Missile Defense System (PAR, MSR, BMDC); and Phased Array Radars (HAPDAR, RESER).

His astrophysics research publications resolved major issues in physics and included:

A Two-Step Integrated Theory of Everything (TOE) - Revision A which will integrate a fundamental physics step with a two part mathematics step. The two parts of the mathematics step are an amplified E8 Lie algebra for particles and an amplified N-body simulation for cosmology. The fundamental physics step replaced twenty independent existing theories with the following twenty interrelated amplified theories: string, particle creation, inflation, Higgs forces, spontaneous symmetry breaking, superpartner and Standard Model decays, neutrino oscillations, dark matter, universe expansions, dark energy, messenger particles, relative strengths of forces, Super Universe, stellar black holes, black hole entropy, arrow of time, cosmological constant problem, black hole information paradox, baryogenesis, and quantum gravity.

His academic background included: the Cooper Union (BSEE 1960), Princeton University (MSEE 1961), and Columbia University (Professional Degree in Industrial Management 1965). All degrees were obtained on scholarships/fellowships (NY State, Emil Schweinberg, Cooper Union, and Orson Desaix Munn) and with highest academic honors (First in Cooper freshman class, Tau Beta Pi, etc.).

A major motivator for his Aerospace Systems Engineering career and astrophysics research was his greater than 99% hearing loss at age 13.
