Missing scientific backgraound[edit]

According to Google Scholar, RB. Hoover wrote and published hundreds of papers in peer-reviewed journals, such as Science. His expertise (Astrobiology, microbial extremophiles, diatoms, X-Ray/EUV Optics -- according to his author page) should be mentioned. (talk) 23:39, 20 March 2011 (UTC)

Yes, his bibliography can be included. But he became notorious and popular with his fringe paper. BatteryIncluded (talk) 02:23, 21 March 2011 (UTC)


User BrigKlyce has made a significant addition to this biography, improving it grately and also adding plenty of WP:Peacock terms. I noticed in his talk page that he works with Hoover and evidently is not neutral, and may even have a conflict of interest. I suggest to carefully review the article accuracy against the references provided. Cheers, BatteryIncluded (talk) 04:09, 4 April 2011 (UTC)

Well, the references seem OK. With the Peacock terms removed, it seems quite accurate. Cheers, BatteryIncluded (talk) 05:33, 4 April 2011 (UTC)
