Muon RIP - end of an era in Astronomy
The news so many of us have dreaded just came flashing across the world by e-mail...
Muon died today - put to sleep with an incurable tumor and internal bleeding, she was 18
Muon lived a long and good life, patrolling the grounds of the Institute of Astronomy, Cambridge.
She chased off the squirrels, mooched off the IoA members, and sternly supervised countless PhD theses, maintaining vigil through the night as the students deliriously pounded away.
She will be missed.
