Albert Crewe obit

From the NYT obit for Albert Crewe, U Chicago Physicist who pushed electron microscopes to show atoms for the first time:

In a public lecture shortly after becoming the director of Argonne, Dr. Crewe bemoaned the growing gulf between scientists and laymen.

“There are too many people behaving like the proverbial ostrich and hoping that science will go away if they bury their heads in the sand,” he said, “and this in spite of the fact that the last few decades have indicated strongly that science will not go away.”
Say hi to Galileo for me Albert. RIP.
