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."
