Jones\'s greatest work: inspire the public to think deeply about his ironic physics, chemistry, engineering, and biology
For more than 40 years, there have been many ironic columns and articles in famous science magazines. Dr.
Jones, who died in July 19 at the age of 79, sometimes called himself a scammer, scammer and \"court clown\" at the Palace of Science \".
\"But the inventions he outlined in his column, usually written in the pen name darose, are told by the doctor of organic chemistry and the life of the happy pursuit of scientific progress. (
Daedaros, an ancient Greek craftsman, created the wings where Icarus once flew too close to the sun. )
Starting in 1964, he wrote several articles a week for London

Before he retired in early 2000, he contributed to Nature magazine, The Guardian, and television programs in Britain and Germany. Dr.
Trevor Lipscombe, a physicist who edited Dr. , said Jones was \"really the only one to do so \".

In a series of articles in early 1990, some religious readers were angry.
Jones proposed a way to measure and quantify the soul, allowing scientists to calculate the speed and Quantum of the soul

He wrote that there are many applications of this method, such as showing when the soul enters the fetus, thus solving the debate about the origin of the personality.
He wrote in 1993: \"If the soul enters the fetus later in pregnancy, the religious argument against contraception and early abortion will be completely overturned.
\"Although many doctors
Jones\'s daedaros column is a simple fantasy flight designed to encourage readers to think about the limits of science and ideas experiments that extend the laws of physics, and he predicts several significant creations and discoveries, including noise.

Jones\'s suspicion reveals the high arsenic content in the French emperor\'s wallpaper, which may at least lead to his illness. Yet Dr.
Jones\'s biggest victory could happen in 1966, when he came up with the idea of a hollow molecule, \"a flat carbon atom is combined in six states like a chicken wire.
Like other daedaros works, this column is a mix of hard science and unconstrained imagination, although this time his thoughts are confirmed in essence.
Three scientists produced such a molecule in 1985 and won the Nobel Prize in chemistry because of their efforts in 1996.
David Edward Hugh Jones was born in London in April 20, 1938.
His father is an advertisement writer and his mother is a housewife.
His brother, Peter, recalled that when he was a child,
Jones was unusually attracted by patching: spending hours in the garden shed, mixing syrup and sulfuric acid to see what mixture would be produced, and then building and firing two-and even three-

Jones\'s most memorable work, the perpetual motive he designed for the British science exhibition in 1981.
As the doctor said, \"science trick\"
Jones called it, and seemed to go against the laws of physics, and the wheels seemed to spin endlessly, without obvious sources of energy. Dr.
Jones had expected someone to find out how the invention worked.
He wrote in 700 new scientist articles that more than 1983 people have tried but failed.
The second machine he built in Chicago fooled another 400 people.
He told The Times that, by 2000, its secrets had not yet been discovered.
