Sad News for LOFAR-UK Community

There is sad news for the LOFAR-UK community from this weekend.

Dr Timothy Garn, a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Royal Observatory of Edinburgh and a member of the LOFAR Surveys team died on Sunday after he lost his footing hiking in the Scottish mountains.

Edinburgh Evening News article

Dr. Philip Best, deputy PI for LOFAR-UK and Edinburgh astronomer is quoted as saying Dr Garn was "an outstanding scientist, always enthusiastic, energetic, and most of all extremely talented, continually surpassing expectations. Nature has cruelly taken Tim away far too early. It has cut short an extremely promising research career, and deprived the world of a truly fine young man."

Our deepest condolences go to Tim's family and friends at this time.
