'Australian scientist and humanitarian Sir Mark Oliphant has always seemed larger than life. He has walked and worked with great men, stood at the heart of great world events, left his own indelible imprint on history.
Always he has remained a figure of controversy, demonstrating against war, challenging politicians, publicly debating the nature of God, preaching the cause of environmental conservation and leaping instinctively to the aid of underdogs.'
