Sad News

You may recall a previous blog item of mine about Operation Skyphoto, which was an attempt to raise funds for a new medical treatment for Alexander Thatte, the young son of two Oxford physicists, by selling old sky survey plates.

I was reading through some items on the e-astronomer this morning, and found a comment by Steve Warren conveying the sad news that Alexander lost his battle against leucaemia and passed away on January 4th 2009.

Vitae Summa Brevis Spem Nos Vetat Incohare Longam.
