Personal Quote:

"The most important thing to teach your children is that the sun does not rise and set. It is the Earth that revolves around it. Then teach them the concepts of north, south, east and west, and that they relate to where you happen to be on the planet's surface. Everything else will follow." (From his last television interview) See more »


The unusual inscription on his headstone, "Call Me Trimtab", refers to his belief that a single person can have a profound influence on the world. When a ship's rudder must be moved, the trimtab (the smallest moving part used to steer a ship) is adjusted to create a low pressure area on one side, thereby turning the rudder and changing the ship's course.
