Nobelist Richard Smalley dead at 62

Nobel winner who discovered 'buckyballs' dead at 62 - Yahoo! News

Smalley was an important man who was taken well before his time. His death is bad news for everyone, whether they've heard of him or not.

My condolences to his family, friends and colleagues, and to the rest of us, too.

Check out Dr. Smalley's presentation, "Our Energy Challenge", as delivered at Columbia University. Smalley's message is among the most important messages of all time.

Smalley's presentation is available from Rice University in Windows media format in low and high bandwidth versions. It is linked right at the top of The Smalley Group's web page. Might as well save it to your computer - it's a keeper.
