English mathematician Alan Turing, who in 1952 was convicted of “gross indecency” (read: homosexuality), today received a pardon from Queen Elizabeth. His death in 1954 was ruled a suicide. His work at Bletchley Park had led to the breaking of the German naval Enigma code during WW2. BBC story: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-25495315
