Klaus Heiss passes away 


Dr. Klaus Heiss, past Chairman of the AIAA Space Colonization Technical Committee passed away peacefully on July 24, 2010 in his hometown Brixen/South Tyrol after an extended illness that he met with grace and quiet determination.

Klaus was a true visionary. He will be missed dearly by all those who are interested in space exploration.
