With deep regret, we announce that on January 13, 2024, Prof. Dr. hab. Krzysztof Belczyński, an employee of the Nicolaus Copernicus Astronomical Center of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw and Universe@Home project author, passed away.

Professor Belczyński had been associated with our institute since 1995. It was then that he began his research on novae stars, followed by the synthesis of stellar populations and the processes of formation of compact objects - neutron stars and black holes. He obtained his doctorate in physical sciences with a specialization in astronomy in 2001. Between 2000 and 2009, he completed numerous scientific internships at foreign research centers. From 2009 to 2017, he was associated with the Astronomical Observatory of the University of Warsaw. In 2010, he obtained his postdoctoral degree, and in 2014 he was awarded the title of professor of physical sciences. Since 2017, he had been employed at the Nicolaus Copernicus Astronomical Center of the Polish Academy of Sciences in Warsaw as a professor.

Professor Belczyński was a theoretical astrophysicist, specializing in the study of compact objects, such as black holes, neutron stars, and white dwarfs. He is the author of over 200 peer-reviewed scientific publications, published in renowned international journals. He led numerous research projects, including the MAESTRO NCN grant and the MASTER FNP program, and supervised doctoral students. His research contributed significantly to the advancement of understanding the physics of compact objects and their evolution. His work is crucial for understanding the nature of gravitational wave sources, which are currently one of the most important topics of scientific research.

I never met Krzysztof personally, but I think the world needs more like him. Unfortunately there is now one less. My condolences go out to his family and friends.

Best wishes to his family, friends, and colleagues who all have to live life now without his presence. I have enjoyed contributing in my small way to his research, and when you make the difficult decision for whatever direction the project will take without him, know that the boinc community is here for you.

Very sad to hear, another "good one" gone too soon. He did not seem to be that old either.
He will be missed and we hope his work can continue.
