I just learnt about a terrible news, that deeply saddened me. Peter Csizmadia, one of the founders of ChemAxon, and the father of Marvin, disappeared on a mountain climbing expedition in China, in October 2009. I learnt about Peter, a few months ago, when I saw his breath taking picture on one of the summits of the world with a ChemAxon memorabilia:
Very brave, and very talented - I thought - when I read about his background at the time. Since I know his brother Csizi, the other founder of ChemAxon, and many other exceptionally talented people at ChemAxon, this did not come as a surprise to me. ChemAxon IS a great team of exceptionally talented and hard working people, conquering even the most difficult peaks.
My sincere condolences to the family, the company, and to science. Loss of Peter is a great tragedy. However, his short life was not in vain, the fruits of his work, like Marvin, make his memory live forever.
