Damn! Damn! Damn!

Freeman Dyson was a genius in the Einstein/Hawking league. but not so well known to the general public. He possessed the sort of mind that made me proud to be the same species,

RIP Professor Dyson. The average I.Q. of the human race is just a little lower now that you have left us.

“Arguably, Dyson's most famous idea was the "Dyson sphere," a hypothetical structure a civilization might build around a star to enclose it and best harness it’s energy.  The notion has made its way into science fiction and astronomy as well. In recent years, some astronomers have even speculated that a particular star in our galaxy exhibiting odd dimming behavior might have an incomplete Dyson sphere, an "alien megastructure," around it. (That idea, however, has since been largely discredited in favor of another explanation, as Live Science previously reported.)” 

Around a star?  Try a planet...the Earth in particular. He was brave, a rare thing in These Times. 

I would say more but the thread would most likely be closed. Some people.....

Probably said too much.  

RIP Freeman Dyson and Thank You.  To be sure , He knew some things.:yes:  >>>>>>
