Freeman Dyson



94 years is a long time. Mr. Dyson did not waste that time. Wikipedia provides a partial overview of his discoveries and concepts, as well as this non-comprehensive list of just the things that were named for him.

Dyson, being a contrarian, was a true scientist, challenging orthodoxies whenever they came up. 

There is an excellent interview with him from a year and a half ago here.  

Thank you Freeman Dyson.

Godspeed.

UPDATE:

Issac Arthur has a fine tribute to this great man.


Mr. Arthur also links to a Ted Talk and interview with Professor Dyson.
