On this day in 1920 – October 2nd – the "Grandfather of the fly-by" Giuseppe 'Bepi' Colombo was born.

It was Colombo who suggested to NASA in 1970 that its Mariner 10 mission could achieve a second fly-by of Mercury by making use of the planet's gravity. A careful analysis showed this could indeed be done and was incorporated into the mission. ESA (European Space Agency) has commemorated him by naming its Mercury mission BepiColombo.
