    It seems a great man has passed and his name was Sir Patrick Moore, we occasionally field complaints when we note people that have passed but as the video above is a great example of he was also legendary among computer game fans in the UK (or at least those around for the 1990's).

    Other than that he was also a legendary TV astronomer presenting the Sky at night for decades which fits rather nicely with the science theme of this section.

    Saw R.I.P. Sir Patrick and nearly had a heart attack, thinking it was going to be Stewart. Regardless, a great man has passed, and may he live on through the lives he touched thought his work.

    Couple of days late, but it was indeed sad to hear about when I did on Sunday.

    Surprisingly, however, I was unfamiliar with Gamesmaster.
