From: Joe McGonagle <joe.mcgonagle.nul> Date: Sun, 12 Aug 2012 12:32:18 +0100 Archived: Mon, 13 Aug 2012 05:50:13 -0400 Subject: Sir Bernard Lovell 31 Aug 1913 - 6 August 2012 It is with genuine sadness that I discovered that Sir Bernard died last week. I didn't know him personally, but I did correspond with him once and I have visited the Lovell Archive. He was truly a scientific innovator, and in my opinion far more worthy of public adulation than any so-called celebrities or politicians which attract more media attention when they die. From my research at the archive and from my correspondence with Sir Bernard, I know that he was always accessible by not only fellow scientists and politicians, but also by ordinary people like myself. He always replied patiently to correspondence when it was required, no matter how ridiculous some of that correspondence might have seemed. His hard work led to advances in space exploration and our understanding of the universe. His personal view was that there may well be life elsewhere in the universe, but that it was not visiting our planet. There is a detailed obituary in the Guardian which can be found at: http://www.guardian.co.uk/science/2012/aug/07/sir-bernard-lovell Regards, Joe Listen to 'Strange Days...
