Astronomer and GamesMaster Sir Patrick Moore dies at 8912/9/2012
Known for his brilliant mind, eccentric style and dashing monocle, astronomer and broadcaster Sir Patrick Moore died at age 89 on Sunday morning at his home in West Sussex, England. With dozens of astronomy books to his name and research that was used by both the U.S. and Russian space programs, Moore could easily be remembered for his scientific accomplishments alone. However, he also appears in the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest-serving TV presenter for his time as the voice of the astronomy program "The Sky at Night." And just in case that wasn't enough, he also was the titular GamesMaster on the pioneering British TV show of the same name, which helped bridge boundaries between video games and TV. [Source]
