Marin Mersenne (1588 1648) was a French Mathematician mainly now remembered
for his work ~work on a class of primes - Mersenne Primes.

However his major contribution to science was being at the centre of a network ~network
of exchange of information between scientists and Mathematicians at a time when
no technical journals were published.
