Lynn Margulis (March 5, 1938-November 22, 2011)

Best known for her theory of endosymbiosis. Here’s one of her books on it.

A Discover interview with her earlier this year, and Suzan Mazur’s interview.

We’re told she had suffered a stroke last Thursday and did not recover.

Here’s Michael Ruse in Chronicle of Higher Education.

I nominate Meryl Streep to play Lynn Margulis - if they do such a movie... Joe

Semi OT: Here is a near death experience that is as dramatic as the Pam Reynold near death experience; Description: Dr. Lloyd Rudy, a pioneer of cardiac surgery, tells stories of two patients who came back to life after being declared dead, and what they told him.

It was found that in the NDE sample, about half had been blind from birth. (of note: This 'anomaly' is also found for deaf people who can hear sound during their Near Death Experiences(NDEs).) http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m2320/is_1_64/ai_65076875/
