Wow this is incredible, I didn't know he had kids... He was my first mentor in the world of professional astrophysics and there won't be another supervisor quite like him! His recommendation letter is probably the most valuable one I have.

I still visit my older brother Bob's NASA website often to view the "astronomical photo of the day" changing link. I know that his upcoming March 26 birthday will be another special time of reflection, memories, happiness and, of course, sadness. Many thanks to family and friends of Bob for your tributes and support!

I would like to share my thoughts on the first anniversary of the death of my older brother Bobby.
It does not seem that a year has already passed. Each and every day throughout the year I find myself thinking about Bobby. My brother Jerry and I called him Bobby.
I often look up to appreciate the beauty of the night sky, and I immediately think of Bobby.
When eating bananas, blueberries or filberts I think of Bobby as these were some of Bobby's favorite foods.
To describe in writing the void I feel would take a poet.
I would love to be able to spend lots of time with Bobby again. Being very busy Bobby, Jerry, and I had to settle for three-way phone conversations. We never missed phone calls on each of our birthdays.
It is difficult to accept that we are now limited to visitations only by memories.
I am very thankful to have so many good memories of Bobby to revisit.

I'm embarrassed by how late my comment is - I worked for Dr. Rubin last summer. He hired me after one phone conversation and gave me an experience that altered my whole life. Working for NASA is not something any average kid gets to do - he was passionate about breaking borders and gave younger kids a chance to make a difference. I spoke with him several times a day each day of that summer, and my only regret is that we never spoke about personal topics; only science. I would have loved to hear stories of his family and travels - I have only now learned of them through reading comments. He's in a better place now, and I'm so glad that our paths intersected for the small amount of time that it did. Rest in peace, Dr. Rubin.
