In trying to contact Professor Ricardo Peralta y Fabi through his university, we learned that he passed away six months ago. Rather tragic news. No more details given.

He was, of course, the back-up Mexican astronaut for STS-61B. A Ph.D in mechanical engineering from McGill University, Montreal, Canada, he taught at the University in Mexico City for many years after the mission.

Our deepest sympathy to his family for their loss.
