The scientist whose rudeness cost him a Nobel prize

The Nobel week began today, and The Guardian published a nice article about Fred Hoyle, the scientist who should have gotten a Nobel prize, but never did.

Thank you for pointing me to this interesting article about Hoyle. It nicely captures what those of us in the field know: that he was both a genius and totally impossible.
