Planetary Society - Memories of Bruce Murray, Aug 30, 2013


Bruce Murray

 "One of the most remarkable minds of 20th century exploration, Planetary Society co-Founder Bruce C. Murray was stilled on, August 29, 2013 at the age of 81. The Planetary Society owes its existence to Bruce.  In fact every human and every robot now exploring the planets owes a debt to Bruce Murray. We were enriched by having known the man; the world of science and exploration is so much poorer for his loss. We invite Members of The Planetary Society to share your memories of Dr. Murray or reflections on his impact on the course of space exploration with us."

PLANETARY SOCIETY's Bruce C. Murray dies, Aug 30, 2013

Bruce Murray
"One of the most remarkable minds of 20th century exploration was stilled this morning, August 29, 2013, when Bruce C. Murray died of Alzheimer’s disease at the age of 81. The Planetary Society owes its existence to Bruce, who with Carl Sagan, decided in 1979 that the world needed an organization that would harness the public’s fascination for planetary exploration and demonstrate to politicians that voters would support those who supported planetary exploration. Bruce and Carl directed the organization together for sixteen years, until Carl’s death, and Bruce took over as president for another 5 years."
