Subject: Andre Brahic, discoverer of Neptune's rings, dies

Written By: Philip Eno on 05/16/16 at 1:23 am

Andre Brahic, one of the people who discovered the rings of Neptune, has died aged 73, his publisher says. The Frenchman was one of the team who first spotted the rings in 1984, naming them Equality, Fraternity and Liberty after the motto of the French Republic. In a tribute, French President Francois Hollande said Brahic had known "how to easily explain the mysteries of space". Brahic, who was 73, was seen as a key figure in increasing public awareness of research into space.
