Jack Horkheimer passes away

via slashdot - Jack Horkheimer passes away.

Probably only people from the states know him, but he had a short astronomy clip on every night about what constallations/planets you could see. I saw him on PBS all the time and he had a great presence that made me interested in astronomy when I was a wee lad.

Wrote his own epitaph too...

"Keep Looking Up was my life's admonition,
I can do little else in my present position."


RIP Jack
