A Tribute to Bob Krone

Bob Krone

Bob Krone had a number of successful careers, including the Air Force, in which he reached the rank of Colonel, and as an educator who mentored numerous graduate students in a number of institutions. He was instrumental in the founding of the Kepler Space Institute, and served as its president until he died on September 15, 2021, at the age of 91. He also helped launch the Journal of Space Philosophy. Bob regularly attended the Overview Round Table, a weekly gathering sponsored by the Human Space Program. The following is a tribute to him that I wrote for his family’s memorial service
