RIP - they're all legends.  Often imitated, rarely matched, probably never beaten.

One of the all-time greats of basketball.

Well, one of his daughters but yes, terrible day for the rest of the poor family.

 

Ironically they were apparently on the way to watch a basketball game.

2019-nCoV may not be the zoonotic disease that does us all in, but just in case, i will be tracking our potential demise with the aid of this cool interactive infographic!

 

In response to this ongoing public health emergency, we developed an online dashboard (static snapshot shown below) to visualize and track the reported cases on a daily timescale; the complete set of data is downloadable as a google sheet. The case data visualized is collected from various sources, including WHO, U.S. CDC, ECDC China CDC (CCDC), NHC and DXY. DXY is a Chinese website that aggregates NHC and local CCDC situation reports in near real-time, providing more current regional case estimates than the national level reporting organizations are capable of, and is thus used for all the mainland China cases reported in our dashboard (confirmed, suspected, recovered, deaths). U.S. cases (confirmed, suspected, recovered, deaths) are taken from the U.S. CDC, and all other country (suspected and confirmed) case data is taken from the corresponding regional health departments. The dashboard is intended to provide the public with an understanding of the outbreak situation as it unfolds, with transparent data sources.

Yes,

 

He certainly lived a very full life.

 

Some of the rumours that circulated around his name in later life were a bit disturbing but, it's Hollywood, who knows ?

 

RIP.

 

Cheers

RIP Larry Tesler ... what did he invent? Copy and paste on computer systems! Which I just used ...

A fine thing.

Believe it or not, this is one of the main things I still have to teach people how to do!

I saw the story on the news but there was no mention of the flat Earth theory.

His previous attempts mustn't have gone very high, you only need to get about 15,000 feet altitude or less to see some real curvature.

Flat earthers  even have an answer to visible curvature from altitude - I just forget what it is 😉

 

Ah well, he died doing what he wanted to do.

 

RIP.

He used a steam powered rocket ... not sure how far we could have gotten anyway with that.

There are ways to produce very powerful steam rockets. After all the latent heat of steam can go to very high levels. It is not the correct way to think of it but in a bizarre fashion any rocket that uses hydrogen and oxygen, as Saturn 5 essentially did, is "burning" water. I don't know exactly what he did to produce the thrust for launch but that doesn't seem to have been the issue, the rocket apparently fouled on the launch gantry.

15000 metres maybe

 

can be seen lower, but you need a clear horizon and wide field of view
