NY Times Magazine Profile of Freeman Dyson

Any fan of science fiction knows of the so-called Dyson Sphere. To be honest, I’ve never even heard of the scientist who thought it up as an interesting intellectual exercise. The New York Times Magazine has an excellent in-depth, 8 page profile of him. It mostly deals with his criticism of the Global Warming consensus (refreshingly from a scientific rather than a political angle), but it has a lot of fascinating details about his life as well.

If you’ve got half an hour or so to kill, it is well worth reading.
