Hans Rosling: Passing of a Legend

This evening I found out about the passing of one of the most charismatic science communicators I’ve had the pleasure of witnessing my entire life. Hans Rosling, Professor of International Health at Karolinska Institute in Sweden and internationally renowned science communicator passed away today, aged 68.

“Being a statistician, you don’t like telling your profession at dinner parties, But really, statisticians shouldn’t be shy because everyone wants to know what’s going on…Statistics tells us whether the things we think and believe in are actually true.” — Prof. Hans Rosling, The Joy of Stats
