Martin Gardner (1914-2010)

Martin Gardner, a famous science writer and a recreational mathematician, died on Saturday at the age of 95.

For 25 years, he has been the Godfather of Mathematical Games in Scientific American and he wrote 70 books. For example, as a kid, I read "Relativity for the Million".

See Google News.

Thanks to Gordon for the tip.
