Dedication of the de Bruyn Office at the Kapteyn Institute

Submitter: Tom Oosterloo
Description: With a small ceremony last Thursday, attended by family, friends and colleagues, the De Bruyn Office was dedicated at the Kapteyn Institute in Groningen. As underlined by Leon Koopmans in his dedication speech, for many years Ger de Bruyn played an instrumental role (literally and figuratively) in Dutch radio astronomy. In particular in his dual role as astronomer at Astron and at the Kapteyn Institute, connecting instrument and science in a way only he could do. His sudden passing has left a large void for the great science to be done with Lofar, but also for many people personally. The de Bruyn Office is a fitting way to keep the memory to Ger and his many contributions alive.
