Missing astronomer found dead in Chile after 2-month search

A British astronomer who went missing while visiting the European Southern Observatory’s (ESO) La Silla site in Chile was found dead after nearly two months of searching. 

Professor Tom Marsh, an expert in binary stars at the University of Warwick in the U.K., disappeared two days after he arrived in Chile on Sept. 14. A search coordinated by Chilean police found a body, now identified as the missing astronomer, last Thursday (Nov. 10). A week later, on Thursday (Nov. 17), the University of Warwick, where Marsh had worked for nearly two decades, issued a statement (opens in new tab) confirming his death.
