Here’s one for SCIENCE!!!
Norman Ramsey was a physicist who studied atomic energy levels. His work led to our modern day atomic clock and the MRI machine. He died on November 4th, 2011.
Everyone’s still upset over Steve Job’s death. Let’s take this in perspective – everyone should be upset over Norman Ramsey’s death, since he had an even LARGER impact on our modern society than some guy who pushed the envelope on personal computers and MP3 players. But instead, we’re all arguing over how important Apple crap is to society.
(NOTE: I’m not saying that Jobs doesn’t deserve attention, or that he never made an impact. But Apple is not the center of our lives, people. The Atomic Clock effects everything – GPS, astronomic deviation, etc.)
