Submission + - VA Tech victims include top researcher

GabrielF writes: "As we learn more about the victims of yesterday's massacre at Virginia Tech it is becoming clear that the international community has been dealt a significant blow. Thus far, the identities of three murdered professors have been announced. They are:
  • Kevin Granata — Described as one of the top 5 biomechanics researchers in the US
  • Liviu Librescu — 76, a Romanian-born Israeli Holocaust survivor "recognized internationally for his research in aeronautical engineering". He reportedly saved the lives of his students by throwing himself in front of the shooter when the man tried to enter the classroom
  • G. V. Loganathan — 51, an Indian-born civil engineering professor
