We have set up a memorial page for Fr. George Coyne: click here, or type in www.VOFoundation.org/fr-george-coyne/
We have three goals for this memorial page.
First, we want to provide a place where people can post their memories of Fr. George.
Second, we want to help organize a memorial book which would include a selection of his writings and the memories posted at that site.
And third, we want to raise enough money to let us publish that book and continue the work that George so loved:
- the science of the Vatican Advanced Technology Telescope
- the education of young astronomers, especially from the developing world
- the engagement with the public with our astronomy
- our vision of faith and science working together
Please take a look at that page, and contribute what you can, as you can. We’re hoping to raise a significant amount of money, and we already have one major gift to start things off, but we’ll also look for lots of smaller amounts as well.
We ask that if you want your remembrance posted (and published) that you contribute to the cause. But you don’t have to pay by the word!
