Obituary for Prof. Jesús Gómez González, Pioneer of Spanish Radio Astronomy


With great sadness, we mourn the loss of Prof. Jesús Gómez González, a founding figure of Spanish radio astronomy.

"Prof. Gómez-González had the vision to create a group of skilled astronomers and engineers in Yebes, who would conduct first-class research and instrumentation in radio astronomy. Today the infrastructures at Yebes, telescopes and laboratories, have well achieved that vision, being also partners in VLBI networks such as the EVN/JIVE, GMVA and IVS", says Francisco Colomer, former director of JIVE ERIC, who worked with him for almost 20 years.
