Death of Sir Patrick Moore

Coisiche (2000870) writes "Breaking news on the BBC news site reports the death of Sir Patrick Moore, renowned broadcaster and astronomer who will probably be most familiar to UK readers. He might be known outside of the UK for being the presenter of the long running TV show, "The Sky at Night".



When I was growing up just about every space related news I saw was presented by him. As well some of his books on astronomy I also read a series of fictional books he wrote for a juvenile audience that featured some travels around the solar system."

As an older /.er I grew up watching him on TV talking about astronomy, space and human activities there. He also played a mean xylophone!
