Sad news! RIP


British-born astronaut Piers Sellers has died of pancreatic cancer, aged 61, Nasa has said. Born in Crowborough, East Sussex, Dr Sellers began working for the US space agency as a scientist in 1982 before joining its astronaut corps in 1996. The climate expert made three Space Shuttle flights to the International Space Station, between 2002 and 2010. Nasa said Dr Sellers, who was diagnosed with stage four pancreatic cancer in 2015, died in Houston on Friday. He became a naturalised US citizen in 1991, making him eligible for the space programme.
