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:
