We were saddened to learn of the recent passing of Professor Govind Swarup, a valued colleague and pioneering radio astronomer.

Professor Govind Swarup, a torch-bearer for building scientific capacity in independent India, passed away in Pune on 7 September 2020 after a short illness. Prof. Swarup is widely regarded as one of the key persons responsible for putting India on the world map of radio astronomy. He is survived by his wife Bina, son Vipin and daughter Anju and their families.

A “Memories and Memorial” page has been set up to gather tributes to this great astronomer.
