No More Mr Night Sky

The renowned Astronomer Patrick Moore has died, aged 89.

Moore will always be known as the host of the long running BBC Science programme : Sky At Night. Remarkable due to having presented it for the last 55 years (in recent programmes, Moore featured less due to ill health).

But for me – Moore will always be synonomous with the early 90′s Channel 4 show the GamesMaster, playing the computer who would hand out gaming tips to people who had wrote in, or setting the rules down for a head-to-head gaming challenge.

So aswell as becoming the most well known astronomer in his field, Moore gained something of cult status amongst a generation of gamers.
