|Description:|| Today Leon Hiemstra is leaving ASTRON, after many years of hard work. He worked on a variety of projects due to his broad skill set. He delivered hardware, firmware and software for our telescopes. Therefore, he spoke many "languages" and was very versatible. Leon is one of a kind and is a real adventurer. Every year, except for the last few years due to the pandemic circumstances, he traveled to Asia to live a couple of months over there tasting a completely other culture. |
At ASTRON Leon has been very friendly, modest, practical and a real problem solver with lots of perseverance. Leon, many thanks for making discoveries in radio astronomy happen!
