    Hi Entropia,
    The Beasley report was most recently updated on March 5, 2003 and I believe efforts are ongoing to purge Schon's fiction.

    quote found in Google: "The journal Science retracted eight of Hendrik Schon's discredited
    research papers on Thursday, but the information still lurks on the Internet. ..." NATURE discredited at least 7 of his papers.

    This Master of the "twisted thought experiment" is better forgotten. Cheers, Jim

    Probably lurking somewhere. No doubt he will reappear claiming the scientific establishment attempted to shut him up for being too smart or something.:frown:
