[extropy-chat] the many worlds of Hugh Everett, III

I found myself wondering (1) whether there's a pop bio of Everett in 
this universe, and if not why not (there is this 
http://space.mit.edu/home/tegmark/everett/ ), and (b) why he didn't 
significantly develop relative state theory in the 25 years--half his 
life--after publishing it. (In this universe, his daughter Liz--born 
the same year as the paper on what would become known as MWI--killed 
herself at 39.) His Weapons Systems Evaluation Group worked on top 
secret nuclear stuff, including (it says at the site above) global 
UFO studies. Maybe a lot of it is still classified.
