Franck Marchis and Family
Franck Marchis is a senior planetary astronomer and science outreach manager of the Carl Sagan Center of the SETI Institute and chief scientific officer and cofounder at Unistellar. His hobbies include CrossFit, biking, video games, and reading. His favorite quote is from Nelson Mandela: “It always seems impossible until it’s done.” His favorite space image is an artwork of the binary asteroid Patroclus and Menoetius. “In a few years, when the Lucy mission visits the binary system, we will have a real picture of this binary asteroid. I named Menoetius, the smaller component, after publishing their orbits. I can’t wait to see real pictures of it.”
