Radio astronomer and physicist Kwok-Yung “Fred” Lo was born on 19 October 1947 in Nanjing, China. The third of six sons, he grew up in Hong Kong, where his father had moved his antique business in 1949 in search of better opportunities. Fred came to the US in 1965 to attend MIT, where he earned his BS in 1969 and a PhD in 1974, both in physics. His thesis, titled “Interstellar microwave radiation and early stellar evolution,” was supervised by radio astronomer Bernard Burke.
