Jack Horkheimer, host of a popular astronomy TV show on the US network PBS, died 20 Aug due to respiratory problems.
Jack started the show "Star Hustler" (later changed to "Star Gazer") back in 1976 and has been doing it every week since. He was also Executive Director of the Planetarium at the Miami Science Museum.
His show literally bubbled with enthusiasm and really made you want to go outside and look up, especially the kids. The show definitely made an impact on me and I'm sure the same is true of many others.
"Keep Looking Up" Jack!
One of Jacks last shows on YouTube:
Oh BTW the shows background music is "Arabesque #1" by Tomita on the album "Snowflakes are Dancing"
