Yes, one of the people who helped popularise astronomy died this afternoon. I’ll let others say more about him.
I am sad that he is gone.
The worst part of this is that the weather is not right for stargazing tonight. At least when Neil Armstrong died I could look at the moon through my telescope and a see where he landed.
His politics may have sucked, but he was an interesting person.
