Richard (Dick) Lamb PDF Print

2018-February-15: VERITAS notes with great sadness the passing of Richard (Dick) Lamb in Lexington, Kentucky, on February 10, 2018. Dick was a key player and a strong proponent of ground-based gamma-ray astronomy during the 1980s and 1990s. He played a significant role in the Whipple 10m collaboration, and his vision and energy helped to move TeV astronomy to the forefront of science. (See the obituary here)

Michael Hillas

The VERITAS collaboration, especially its members that were part of the Whipple 10-meter telescope group, are saddened at the loss of Michael Hillas.

Michael was the man whose physical insight, coupled with a flair for extracting the most from simple numerical calculations, was able to develop the key analysis procedure that enabled the first detection of an astrophysical gamma-ray source using a ground-based instrument. Indeed, this method continues to be the bedrock on which all modern analyses are built. In many respects Very-High-Energy gamma-ray astronomy owes its existence and continued good health to the pioneering efforts of this man.

We extend our sympathies to his family and friends.
