Does the surname ring a bell?


Tweet from ESA in the last hour.....


We are saddened to learn of the death of Klim Churyumov, who discovered Rosetta’s comet 67P with Svetlana Gerasimenko


At least he got to see all the science that was done.

How amazing would it have been to not only discover a comet, but watch the Rosetta mission to it. It seems a shame that he has passed only a few weeks after the mission ended, maybe that was what was keeping him going.

RIP Klim Churyumov.
