Keith’s note: Back in the mid 1980s, when I was working at the Life Science Division at NASA HQ, I met Jack Farmer. He was only a few years older than me. He was the classic field paleontologist/geologist/exobiologist. Every time I’d see him over the next 30 or so years – whether it was at peer review panels or PI meetings – he was always in khakis ready to go out and get dirty at a moment’s notice. Eventually, in the late 1990s such a multi-/cross-disciplinary sort of researcher became known as an “astrobiologist”. He was one of the iconic archetypes that generations of astrobiologists have emulated. Ad astra Jack. Memorial arrangements below:
