Sir Patrick Moore Death: Astronomer Dies Aged 89

The Brian Cox of his day.

Will his body become stardust once more?

A Great Guy.
The Guiding Star of Modern Astronomy for millions of people.
Will be sorely missed.

perhaps without him our path will be a little darker, but our understanding of the planets and what is out there will remain much brighter.

considering he was self taught he put his touch on so many things after WWII before settling into what we know him for best
but he has left a legacy that will see us through

RIP

Some people keep going on about what a racist he was, but I think given that the love of his life was killed by a Nazi bomb it's understandable that he couldn't stand the Germans.

Nobody's perfect.
