This is very sad news.
I have always regarded Mikhail Panasyuk first of all as a precious human being.
Obviously, he was a great science leader and profound physicist, with wide scientific
scope and vision, and I respected him very much for that. But in addition, he had this
very special way of connecting with people and being attentive and considerate, a
way which I always felt very human and, maybe, very "Russian"!
I should confess that his English speaking was sometimes hard to follow for me, but
even when I had trouble to catch the bottom line of his message on the first try, I
always felt connected anyway, and always received with pleasure and gratitude his
warm smile and good spirit.
I remember him standing up, rising his glass and singing to life at a dinner in
Moscow. This is how I'll keep him in my memory: human, lively, passionate, warm,
sincere and friendly!
So, dear Russian colleagues, please receive my deep condolences and transmit my
sympathy and that of all the French EUSO collaboration to his family and friends.
