Freeman Dyson – the scientist ‘as artist and rebel’

Freeman Dyson is a contentious figure in the world of science. He rejects what he sees as stultified institutions and the restrictions of consensus culture, he isn’t shy of saying that he thinks the global warming threat is vastly overstated, and he believes that once we make it out of the gravity well and into space we have every chance of spreading out and colonising the entire universe. I wonder if he’s considered writing fiction at all?
