With deep regret, IHEU records the death of Prof. Hermann Bondi, one of the most distinguished Humanists of our time.
A mathematical physicist and astronomer, Prof. Bondi had been President of the British Humanist Association, and an active presence on the Humanist scene till Parkinson’s struck a few years ago. Acclaimed as a genius, Prof. Bondi has held several positions of distinction in the UK and in Europe, including that of Head of the European Space Agency. Master of Churchill College, Cambridge, UK for nearly 8 years, he was best known as a propounder of the Steady State Theory of the Universe, as a science populariser and for his book Cosmology.
IHEU passes on to Christine Bondi and their family our deepest condolences.
