Thanks for sharing this unfortunate news. I read on an article his health was declining so in a way he is in a better place now.

I read that 'the laser' has bumped the electric light bulb(Edison) from the most significant invention list.
But not all agree.
Lasers don't make many lists at all..
cant argue- that. either way..

The majority of incandescent lights will not be around much longer....

here are links to reading about the beginnings of lasers and why there are many given credit for research on lasers-
