RIP Margherita Hack

20130629-151345.jpg

She was an astronomer: Tuscan, Florentine, simple, ironic, vegetarian, sporty, hilarious, clever!
A great scientist.
She died today at 91.

Dear Margherita,
As you often said: when I am no more, death has come. But you are still and you will always be my hero, the woman I would have loved to be. A great witty astronomer. Unfortunately me and physics have never got along that well and my dream lives through my telescope, when nights are clear.

Among the stars, where now you are (not), I hope you find the answers to all the astronomical mysteries you have not had the time to solve.
