SAIP Joins the World to Mourn Nelson Mandela
This is really at once a both a sad and a significant day ... cause for reflection and celebration of a great life. South Africa is very blessed to have been the home of this great man.
The South African Institute of Physics mourns the departure of Nelson Mandela, and sends condolences to his family and his community. HAMBA KAHLE, MADIBA!
The advent of Democracy in South Africa ushered in a new era for Science, and especially for Physics. The SAIP attributes the current growth in the health of Physics to the favourable climate for science that developed under Democracy and Nelson Mandela’s legacy
The Institute takes up his challenge of living in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.
“Unless a man undertakes more than he possibly can do, he will never do all he can do.” 1
We will rededicate our efforts for the education of all of his people. It is indeed a goal worth pursuing and a fitting tribute to the spirit of this great man.
