My thoughts go out to his family and the people he was close to.

His dream may yet change the world.

I'm sorry he never got to see WB-7 operate, disproving the thermodynamic objection...

This is very sad news, whether or not his genius provides one of the great turning points of history or proves a dead end which had to be explored to the limit, in lis lifetime he contributed more to the sum of human knowledge and the prospect of limitless horizons than most of us would if we were granted a hundred lives and unlimited academic access. My heartelt condolences to his family and colleagues.
