She’d been poorly awhile.


#214

Sad but I guess she lived the best of both worlds - 1960s space child / 1980s domesticity.

He always entertained & informed. I used to really enjoy the great egg race in particular.


#216

With the accent and the hair he was the caricature of the slightly mad scientist during my youth.
I thought he was great.


#217

I am sad. He was up there with Dibnah in my book


#218

Ah, how sad. I remember loving the great egg race.

Despite helping to establish a stereotype which the rest of us have struggled to live down, he was as popular among scientists as among the general public. He had a good academic reputation too. I remember him being great on Young Scientist of the Year.

One more case of a European migrant, in fact a refugee, from whom everyone here has benefited.

RIP.
