Remembering Ursula K. Le Guin, an inspiration to scientists

Le Guin was a testament to how fiction reveals truth, empathy, and the beauty of knowledge

Massive honors the legacy of Ursula K. Le Guin, who passed away this week at the age of 88. She inspired many of us with her fantasy, poetry, science fiction, and essays. 

One Massive consortium member, Dan Samorodnitsky, wrote us, "...Before Le Guin, reading was either informative and real, or fantastic and fictional, but never both. She was the first writer who showed me that truth and beauty really can intersect." 

Thank you, Ursula, for bringing other worlds to us and unfurling a beautiful cosmic empathy within us, through your prose.

Ursula K. Le Guin
