sir patrick moore has died

I have arrived back from Egypt in one piece, and Sir Patrick Moore has just died, not that l think the two are in any way related.   One of the facts about him that is amazing, is that he met the first man to fly (Orville Wright), the first man in space (Yuri Gagarin), and the first man on the moon (Neil Armstrong).  A pretty rare, if not unique feat.  The world changed so much in his lifetime, it's staggering trying to get your head around it.  Who knows what will happen in the next 80 odd years (Moore was 89).
