Professor Simopoulos Dies at the Age of 79

ATHENS – Professor Dionysis Simopoulos passed away on Sunday at the age of 79. Simopoulos, head of the Eugenides Planetarium, played an important role in promoting astronomy and science in general in Greece.

“Dionysis Simopoulos passed away quietly,” the Eugenides Foundation said in a statement.

“The man who for more than 50 years was at the helm of the Eugenides Planetarium, as its Director and later as Honorary Director, is no longer with us. Dionysis Simopoulos left us today, quietly, surrounded by his family. Our beloved Dionysis Simopoulos Goodbye,” the post added.


Dr. Stavroula Kousteni was lucky enough to know from a very young age, at 8th grade, what she wanted to do in life, and with passion – research in the biological sciences.
