Thanks Byron, more Info from Cornell

Hans Bethe, a titan of physics and conscience of science, dies at age 98

In tribute, Jeffrey S. Lehman, president of Cornell, said; "The world has lost one of the great pioneers of 20th century physics, and Cornell has lost a beloved teacher, mentor and friend. In the breadth of his insight, the rigor of his research, the depth of his social conscience and the steadfastness of his commitment to Cornell, Hans Bethe set the standard for engaged scientific citizenship that will serve as a beacon for generations to come."

Bethe's fellow Nobel laureate, physicist Robert C. Richardson, who is Cornell's vice provost for research, said; "Hans Bethe was a giant of 20th century science. He has been revered by his Cornell colleagues. He left profound and enduring marks of his intellectual leadership on Cornell, the United States, and the entire world. Bethe had an important influence upon me as a young faculty member when I arrived at Cornell in 1966. He demonstrated a clarity of thought that I could only hope to emulate some day."
