It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of Dr André Messiaen. André passed away at noon on Friday, the 1st of October.
André was a superb physicist and co-founder of the laboratory for Plasma Physics of the Royal Military Academy in Brussels. André was a highly valued member of the laboratory. For many of us he was also a close friend and wonderful colleague.
He kept surprising us by his very inquiring and sharp mind until his last days, his honest attitude, and his fine sense of humour. He will be missed tremendously.
André will be lovingly remembered by his family and friends. And by so many colleagues worldwide who had the pleasure to know him.
