Death of Jean-Louis Steinberg, co founder of the Nancay Radio Astronomy Station

With many thanks, I refer to:




His Family was of Jewish Ancestry and they were deported to the extermination camps of Auschwitz-Birkenau and Buchenwald. He was the only survivor of his Family and was liberated by the Armed Forces of the United States of America.

"...Jean-Louis Steinberg played a leading role in the organization of the station, and subsequently in the creation of the large radiotelescope..."

He lives in our memories.
