Goddard Center Director Remarks on Passing of Neil Gehrels
“Throughout his success, Neil always found time to share his achievements with others. Following in the footsteps of his father, an astronomer who helped dissident scientists during the Cold War, Neil and his family were active volunteers in disadvantaged communities around Goddard. In 2005, he helped develop an internship program that allowed local high school students with hardships to work in his labs. “Neil leaves behind a legacy only he could have created, and words cannot adequately express our grief for this great loss.”
