A bit of news for my fellow University of Victoria alumni, there is some sad news today with the announcement that Dr. Reg Mitchell has passed away. To most of the community he is better known as Dr. Zonk, the green-haired chemist who demonstrated cool chemistry experiments to school children (and many adults) for over thirty years at public events and lectures.

He was a skilled chemistry researcher, and an even better educator, and he will be missed by the local scientific community.
