Passing of Jan Cuypers, Astronomer and Astrophysicist

It is with deep regret and sorrow that we inform you of the passing of our colleague Dr. Jan Cuypers. Born on 5 May 1956 in Diest, he suddenly left us on 28 February 2017. Jan was the head of the scientific service “Astronomy and Astrophysics” and of the Information Service at the Royal Observatory of Belgium.
For his funeral, his colleagues have done a farewell speech, originally written in Dutch. You will find them here and here.
