RIP Patrick Moore

Sir Patrick Moore, the UK's best known astronomer, has died today at the age of 89.

Moore presented the BBC late-night astronomy show - The Sky At Night for more than 50 years.

For those unfamilair with Patrick Moore, you could say he was the UK's equivalent of Carl Sagan, as both played huge roles in educating people about space and the cosmos via television.
