    • Message to the astrobiology community: Nicolas Glansdorff Orbituary
      "A few weeks ago, Nicolas Glansdorff, accidentally passed away while hiking alone through Norwegian Lapland. Hiking was a pastime he had loved throughout his life, and he had a passionate interest in the Arctic region, having traveled from Alaska to Siberia. Nicolas was fond of places such as this where humans are confronted with the harshness of nature, and he especially enjoyed living this experience as a solitary hiker.
      He was Professor Emeritus at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. Originally trained as a botanist, he soon switched to bacterial genetics, and later to the microbiology of extreme environments.
      To his students, colleagues and friends, he was the essence of a learned man, one who inspired trust. With his charm and wit, in his teaching, he brought to life the mechanisms of evolution and theories on the origin of life. An expert at combining poetry and philosophy with extreme scientific rigor, he led his audience to profoundly contemplate the mechanisms that sustain life on our planet and possibly elsewhere! He will be deeply missed by microbiologists around the world."
