BACK AMONGST THE STARS - BJARNI TRYGGVASON

On Tuesday 5th April, Bjarni passed away unexpectedly. In the days prior to his passing, we had finally broken through some major barriers, allowing us to proceed with our first major project in Space. There was great excitement amongst Bjarni and the team. He was quite literally over the Moon. From his adventures as an astronaut and test pilot, to his extraordinary ability to apply math, physics and science to the real world, we learned much from Bjarni. His connection and love of Ireland grew immensely over the last few years. He loved being here and we loved having him here.

Little did we know that our Universe had even bigger plans for Bjarni. He is back amongst the planets and the stars, the very things we strove to reach. We are truly heartbroken but Bjarni’s memory and shared knowledge will live on forever in all that we do.
