Submission + - RIP Sir bernard Lovell (

An anonymous reader writes: Sir Bernard Lovell, the creator of Jodrell Bank and the Lovell telescope has just died. The Mark 1 telescope, as it was then known, was the only western telescope that could track the early Russian moon probes which ensured it's debts were paid off, but is more famous for radio astronomy including pulsar research, hydrogen line studies of the galaxy and much more as other telescopes joined it in the Merlin network.
