Size and date are okay, and the hook fact is properly cited. All other DYK criteria seem fine, although the primary source is in Italian so I wasn't able to check that very well. MANdARAX•XAЯAbИAM 00:44, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
I included the NASA link so there was an English source as well. The Italian source says (p. 7):
sin dal 1932 si occupava di ricerche nel campo delle microonde; è sua la creazione del neologismo “microonde” (e di “microwaves”) nella letteratura scientifica dell’epoca.
Which I translate as:
From 1932, he was in charge of microwave research; he created the neologism "microonde" (and "microwaves") in the scientific literature of the time.
The third link is to the paper itself. Thanks for your review! Hawkeye7 (talk) 01:38, 19 January 2013 (UTC)
