Adieu, Goodenough!

June 27, 2023 Adieu, Goodenough! This refers to the report "Goodenough, co-inventor of Li-ion batteries passes away" (The Hindu Business Line, June 27). The Nobel Laureate's passing away deserved a wider coverage in the mainstream media, perhaps more for the statement he made eight years ago : "I am only 92; I still have time to go." No doubt, more articles will be published in the media soon and perhaps new books will be written about Goodenough this year. But what is preventing us from appreciating the life and work of achievers like this, even before they become celebrities in different circumstances? Adieu, Goodenough, you will be remembered through your contribution to science and technology. M G Warrier Mumbai
