Freeman Dyson

Born in the United Kingdom, Freeman John Dyson (1923-) is an American mathematician and physicist. He has made important contributions in the fields of nuclear engineering, quantum mechanics, and solid-state physics, but is also known for his predictions about the future (not always correct, but in his own words, "it is better to be wrong than to be vague"), and his ideas about space exploration, space colonization (including a favorite idea of science fiction authors, the "Dyson sphere"), and the search for extra terrestrial life.

Dyson was team leader of Project Orion and a leading advocate. When the project ended, he wrote an empassioned plea for the project to continue in the journal Science: "this is the first time in modern history that a major expansion of human technology has been suppressed for political reasons."

Here are some books by Freeman Dyson:
