NASA and ESA have noted the passing of Claudia Alexander, who served as project manager for the Galileo probe to Jupiter and most recently, project manager and project scientist for the U.S. portion of ESA's Rosetta mission to Comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko.
Claudia Alexander passed away on July 11, 2015 after a 10 year battle with breast cancer. She was 56.

"Claudia brought a rare combination of skills to her work as a space explorer. Of course with a doctorate in plasma physics, her technical credentials were solid. But she also had a special understanding of how scientific discovery affects us all, and how our greatest achievements are the result of teamwork, which came easily to her. Her insight into the scientific process will be sorely missed." — Dr. Charles Elachi, Director of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory

A shame she was taken so young with many years still ahead of her. I saw her just the other day in the PBS documentary "Chasing a Comet: The Rosetta Mission," shown just after a NOVA episode on New Horizons, and her enthusiasm and passion for space science was evident.

I too saw her in that documentary recently. A sad and tragic loss for space science. RIP.
