ESA BR-299 Commemorative Colloquium in Honour of George P. van Reeth
George van Reeth, one of the longest-serving ESA Directors, died in August 2010 at his home in Tuscany. In February 2011, a colloquium was held to pay tribute to a man whose name was almost synonymous with the Agency.
This booklet contains speeches given by those who knew George well and worked closely with him during his long career at the Agency. It offers a snapshot of his personality and of his important contributions to ESA and European space cooperation.
